Athena Loves Horror 5eva

I am a lifelong horror addict. I spend probably too much time watching and reading horror. I tried to squeeze as much horror related stuff as I could into my BA. Anyone who knows me well knows that I am about that spooky life. As a result people ask me for movie recommendations all the time. Since I have had a lot of spare time lately I finally compiled an actual list of film recommendations and favourites. They range from must see classics to guilty pleasures to the best indie and foreign films of the 21st century. It should go without saying that some of these are incredibly disturbing and difficult to watch.
