The Rotten Tomatoes' list compiled from the site's most critically heralded horror movies includes all acclaimed films that feature a "horror" tag. This resulted in a list that spans traditional horror films, horror-comedies, and outright horror parodies.

The list ranks the movies by an adjusted critical score that Rotten Tomatoes derived from a weighted formula to account for the variation in number of reviews for each film.

The list includes classic horror-thrillers like "Silence of the Lambs" and "Psycho," along with recent titles like the Oscar-winning "Get Out" and the acclaimed 2015 film "It Follows."
