My Top Fifteen Summer Horror Films


As I sit here writing this I'm trying to keep cool in a heatwave


We don't deal well with heat in England as we're used to the cold and rain. It was whilst trying to keep cool I've also been watching Summer Horror films and I soon realised that I haven't done a list of my favourite Summer themed Horror films.

So here it is, my list of my top ten Summer Horror films (the list is not in a favouritism order):


Summer Of 84
After suspecting that their police officer neighbor is a serial killer, a group of teenage friends spend their summer spying on him and gathering evidence, but as they get closer to discovering the truth, things get dangerous.

The Hills Have Eyes

The Ruins
A group of friends whose leisurely Mexican holiday takes a turn for the worse when they, along with a fellow tourist, embark on a remote archaeological dig in the jungle where something evil lives among the ruins.

Sleepaway Camp

Tucker & Dale vs Evil
Affable hillbillies Tucker and Dale are on vacation at their dilapidated mountain cabin when they are mistaken for murderers by a group of preppy college students.

Wrong Turn

Friday The 13th
A group of camp counselors are stalked and murdered by an unknown assailant while trying to reopen a summer camp which, years before, was the site of a child's drowning.

The Lost Boys
After moving to a new town, two brothers discover that the area is a haven for vampires.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

Rogue

Tremors

House Of 1000 Corpses
Two young couples traveling across the backwoods of Texas searching for urban legends of murder end up as prisoners of a bizarre and sadistic backwater family of serial killers.



Honourable Mentions:

I have to admit that this list was A LOT harder to make than I thought it was going to be and I had to leave a lot of films off that I really didn't want to but the list would've just gone on and on. Also, I didn't add it to the list due to its PG rating but I'd also like to include "The 'Burbs".
