Hammer is synonymous with horror, after defining the genre in Britain with classics such as Dracula, The Curse of Frankenstein and The Mummy, which spawned numerous sequels. However, only 1/3rd of Hammer films were horror! The company tackled other genres, including psychological thrillers, sci-fi, noir and historical epic.
From the book of the same name, published by Rue Morgue magazine.
Prior to the establishment of UK state censorship implemented in the Video Recordings Act of 1984, censorship was in the realms of the courts and the Obscene Publications Act. This required the courts to apply the test of whether videos were likely to "deprave and corrupt" the viewer. The Director Of Public Prosecutions (DPP) maintained a list of those videos that were felt likely to be found obscene by the courts and hence worthwhile prosecuting.
Of course, the real drivers behind the moral panic were the UK press led by the ever obnoxious Daily Mail. Not to mention a few politicians who felt they could make a name for themselves.
Several versions of the video nasty list were published with videos added and removed over the period 1983-1985. 72 videos were listed at least for a while. Another couple of films can stake a claim via a shared name with listed films. 39 made it through to the end, and these became known as the DPP39s. These 39 titles became the most sought after collectibles.

Here is an exhaustive list of Universal Monster Movies including the new Universal Monster Universe. I will be adding more of those as they are released. If you feel that there is something missing, feel free to suggest an addition. I realize Dracula '92, Frankenstein '94 and Gods and Monsters '98 are not Universal properties but I feel they are closely related and relevant.

(List of websites and books)
The 53 Magyar Film is a list compiled in 2012 by Magyar Művészeti Akadémia (The Hungarian Academy of Arts) of feature length Hungarian narrative films.
The voting led by Sandor Sara yielded a list of 53 films between the years ranging from the first Hungarian film in 1931 up to 1994.
As a counterpart to the fairly mainstream TSPDT top 1000 list, the Ain't Nobody's Blues But My Own list has been created. The movies on this list had as its solely criterium: they must be mentioned at most once in a top list. 250 film critics/film makers got to choose exactly one of the aforementioned movies.
The list hadn't been on the website of TSPDT for several years and hadn't been updated for many years as well. In January 2019 the owner of the site sent [iCheckMovies] a new update. It's not listed on his website, but you can view the spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EJKX9yOpKk3dT9BizPambwxhbjfMd7QAWxzlT31l4f8/edit?usp=sharing
The list contains 253 titles instead of 250, because the vote for Buddha's Palm consists of four parts.
Note: Missing "Sorority Sex Kittens 3" - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0155196/
In 2015, the Museum of Cinematography in Łódź asked 279 film professionals to vote for the best Polish films of all time. The top 65 films are ranked, all with 12 votes or more. The next 40 films are unranked, with 6-11 votes.

In 2014, Sight & Sound polled 340 documentary critics, curators, academics and filmmakers asking for top 10 documentary lists. Over 1000 films got votes, from years as early as 1892 to as recent as 2013. This list is the combined critics and filmmakers list of all films that received 3 or more votes.
In 2008, the Romanian Film Critics Association asked 40 critics, film historians, and journalists to vote for the best Romanian films. Each voter submitted a list of 10 films. This is a list of films that received at least 1 vote.
This list has been compiled by aggregating the movies in three different lists: The Deuce Top 20 (2007-08), The Deuce Top 20 (2008-09) and Quentin Tarantino's Top 20 Grindhouse Classics. The movies in this list all belong to classic international exploitatation/cult cinema movies.
"Nunsploitation is a subgenre of exploitation film which had its peak in Europe in the 1970s. These films typically involve Christian nuns living in convents during the Middle Ages. The main conflict of the story is usually of a religious or sexual nature, such as religious oppression or sexual suppression due to living in celibacy. The Inquisition is another common theme. These films, although often seen as pure exploitation films, often contain criticism against religion in general and the Catholic church in particular. Indeed, some protagonist dialogue voiced feminist consciousness and rejection of their subordinated social role. Many of these films were made in countries where the Catholic Church is influential, such as Italy and Spain. One atypical example of the genre, however, is Killer Nun (Suor Omicidi), set in, then, present-day Italy (1978).
Nunsploitation, along with Nazisploitation, is a subgenre that ran a parallel course alongside Women in prison films in the 1970s and 1980s. As with prison films, they are set in isolated, fortress-like convents where the all-female population turns to lesbianism and perversity. The element of religious guilt allows for lurid depictions of "mortifying the flesh" such as self-flagellation and painful, masochistic rituals. The Mother Superior is usually a cruel and corrupt warden-like martinet who enforces strict discipline (more opportunities for whippings and medieval-style punishments) and often lusts after her female charges. An equally sadistic and lecherous priest is often included to add an element of masculine menace to the story. (Wikipedia)
This is a list compiled as a result of a poll by Caimán Cuadernos de Cinema magazine, which is the Spanish branch of Cahiers du Cinéma.
350 experts were consulted: journalists, film critics, historians, professors, intellectuals, festival managers... People involved in the creative process were left out. According to the magazine, this way provides an external approach, a more objective one.
hese are the awards being given to the best Belgian films since 1987. From 1987 till 2005 this award was called the Joseph Plateauprijs.

The award recognizes excellence in motion picture making, such as acting, directing and screenwriting in Mexican cinema. It is considered the most prestigious award in the Mexican movie industry.

The Golden Calf (Gouden Kalf) is the grand prize of the Dutch Film Festival (Nederlands Film Festival), similar to Berlin's Golden Bear and Venice's Golden Lion.

A selection of candidates is made by the festival staff and a pre-jury, after which an independent jury selects the winners.

The 100 best British films as chosen by a panel of 150 film industry experts, including directors Sam Mendes, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach and Wes Anderson, actors David Morrissey, Sally Hawkins and Thandie Newton, newspaper and magazine critics and the heads of the UK's major cultural organisations.
The best 100 British films were chosen by 1,000 people from the UK's film industry, including producers, directors, writers, actors, technicians, academics, exhibitors, distributors, executives and critics. The final selection spans seven decades and accommodates the work of 70 film directors. Unsurprisingly, literary adaptations feature strongly - ranging from Shakespeare and Dickens to Roddy Doyle and Irvine Welsh - and the highbrow mixes easily with the low.
Deciding that Londoners should have the opportunity to view a film masterpiece approximately every day during the course of the year, BFI film archivist David Meeker approached the board of directors at the BFI in 1982 with his idea of compiling a list of 360 of the world’s cinema masterpieces, collect brand new, state-of-the-art prints of each film and issue a companion book for each movie. This list of films, referred to as the 360 Classic Feature Films project, was published in Sight and Sound's June 1998 issue.
