The 10 Greatest Horror Movies of the 1990s

  1. Tremors

What can be said about Tremors? Well it’s a cult classic monster movie and probably one of the best of its kind. It’s hard to describe just how fun this movie is, so if you haven’t already seen it then I suggest you do so. Boasting some of the best practical monster effects of its decade, which still very much hold up, it will always remain in my top ten movies of all time. I get the feels every time I watch this movie, the nostalgia factor alone will always give it a permanent spot on my list, let alone its great cast, performances, and script. And did I mention the effects?

As monster movies go it is standard fair, the small town of Perfection Nevada comes under siege by huge subterranean worms and that’s about the extent of it. But the execution here is damn near perfect. Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward playing Val and Earl are fantastic, as is Michael Gross as Burt Gummer, the paranoid gun enthusiast who took charge of the franchise by its third entry. It’s a rare thing when a movie like this gets everything right, but Tremors stood the test of time and stands to this day as one of the best monster movies around (look into Tremors 5, as well, as it’s an alarmingly awesome movie with some of the best CGI you’ll see), I might dare to say it’s possibly the best. But to make such bold statement I still need to bump a few movies off of my watch list first.

 

Now if you’re reading this you might be thinking, why no Silence of the Lambs or Se7en? While they are both great movies they’re actually crime thrillers and while they certainly have horror themes I don’t count them as true horror movies. Feel free to disagree but I calls them as I sees them.
