Horror Film Tournament – Round 1

Welcome to Cinedraft’s Horror Film Tournament Bracket! It’s October, and that means most of our writers are losing sleep over the memory of that time they watched the boat scene in Willy Wonka, so we need your help! We want to find the best horror movie of all time, and we’re trusting you to pick them.

We’ve narrowed down the selection to 32 films, and we’ve split them into two groups, “Modern”, and “Classic” (we’re counting “Night of the Living Dead” as the cutoff point here). We’ve pre-ranked them and seeded them into the bracket you see below. (It’s been half a year since March Madness, so we know you’re jonesing for some brackets!) We’ll do one round each week, revealing Cinedraft’s ultimate horror movie on Halloween. Voting will run through Friday of each week, then on Monday we’ll post the results of the previous week’s voting and open the voting on the next round.

So go ahead! Get voting! The winner is yours to decide! (And make sure to let us know in the comments and on Facebook who you’re rooting for! Did we completely disrespect your favorite horror film? Let us know that too! Exclamation points!!!!)
