If you are a fan of all things horror, then the figure of Stephen King surely holds a special place in your macabre heart. In addition to writing scary novels and reviewing books by his peers, King is also an avid movie buff, with horror being his favorite genre (who would've thought?).

And King has no problem sharing his opinions online, at one point even revealing about ten modern horror films that he considers to be the best.

The list King presented to his fans feels as confident as his best novels, because it's almost impossible to come up with a better list of modern horror movies – King managed to include big Hollywood productions, small indie wonders and even some B-movies, which is certainly something we can expect from the King of Horror himself.

However, King's inclusion of "The Autopsy of Jane Doe" will surely raise some eyebrows, as this particular scary movie was never even considered to be one of the best in the genre. Perhaps King saw something in it that many of us didn't, and perhaps a recommendation from such a towering figure in horror fandom will force you to watch it again.

Or maybe you can find some clues in the movies listed above that will help you understand King's latest books even better!
