  1. […] My most helpful post and one of my most popular was my Goregirl’s Favourite Horror Films 1970-79. I break down my 10 favourite horror films for each year of the 70s. I watched and re-watched a shitload of films for this feature. I am passionate about my 70s cinema so this exercise was a real pleasure. This series of list gets a ton of hits, particularly 1973. I put a lot of work into this post and I think it is a pretty good representation of the decade. This link is only for a summary of the lists. You can click on each individual year to see the original post. Check it out HERE. […]

  2. Great lists Goregirl! We share many things in common,especially fondness for giallos and Italian horror cinema in general. I love Hatchet for the Honeymoon and am delighted to see it on your 1970 list. I’ve seen all the films on each list and enjoy them tons! Best wishes always Goregirl!

      Thank you! It is always good to meet a fellow fan of Giallo/Italian horror cinema! I wish more people appreciated it the way we do!

  3. Goregirl! love your list…the 70s was ripe for great atmosphere and a very non-selfconscious type of film making. Can’t squeeze that natural creep factor into a remake. Love your site and the material you cover. And yes…I have adopted black cats from shelters and rescued a few along the way! You rock
