Horror Ten Spot: Best Horror Anthologies!

Ah, the best time of the year, happy October folks! As you may know, a number of cool looking horror flicks are getting legitimate theatrical releases this month, none more intriguing than the low-budget horror anthology V/H/S. I'm aware the flick has received mixed reactions, but come on, what better way to celebrate the season of the dead than with a compilation of short-order terror? Can't beat it. Which is why, in case you're unable to find V/H/S in a theater near you, we're highlighting the best of the form. You down? Our Horror Ten Spot this week shines the light on 10 of the best all time horror anthologies. Enjoy!

Good call on Cat's Eye! A fav of mine!

Tales from the Darkside: The Movie would have made my list...

A few omissions are glaring to me.

I'd have included Tales from the Hood, Tales from the Darkside: The Movie, Necronomicon, and The Twilight Zone movie, (even though not every story is horror).
But I just got my hands on From Beyond the Grave, Black Sabbath, and Asylum, so as soon as I watch those, maybe my opinion will change.

Great list, Jake, as always!

You know your stuff for a young horror fan. Some minor quibbles: I would rearrange my list a bit but I love your picks. Matheson's Trilogy of Terror is really only notable for the last segment(But what a doozy!). Cat's Eye, too, is only notable for Quitter's Inc(and the wraparound). Bava's Black Sabbath is wonderful, Dan Curtis's Dead of Night was a worthy TV movie in the Trilogy of Terror mode. The Twilight Zone movie, the Night Gallery TV movie, Hawthorne's Tales of Terror, The House That
You know your stuff for a young horror fan. Some minor quibbles: I would rearrange my list a bit but I love your picks. Matheson's Trilogy of Terror is really only notable for the last segment(But what a doozy!). Cat's Eye, too, is only notable for Quitter's Inc(and the wraparound). Bava's Black Sabbath is wonderful, Dan Curtis's Dead of Night was a worthy TV movie in the Trilogy of Terror mode. The Twilight Zone movie, the Night Gallery TV movie, Hawthorne's Tales of Terror, The House That Dripped Blood, The Monster Club. And, of course, the original Dead of Night is an unquestioned classic of British cinema(and the mmost glaring ommission here). Also, check out some foreign entries: "Three Extremes" is terribly unsettling, "Kwaidan" is amazing, and there is a French one from the late '60s that is very good too(the name escapes me). Nevertheless, great job on this list. Asylum and From a Whisper to a Scream are particular hidden gems!

"Spirits of the Dead" was that other one I was thinking of.
