With an average IMDb score of 6.8 from over 10 horror movies released in 1962 you could say it was actually a pretty good year for horror movies. Sure there were some duds (La mano de un hombre muerto, The Awful Dr. Orlof), but we also got some real gems like What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962) and Carnival of Souls (1962) to name just a few. As horror fans we've come to expect a wide ranging degree of quality from our vice but in 1962 we did pretty good.So grab some snacks and a drink (and maybe something to hide behind) and check out reviews, ratings and trailers for the 1962 - Top 20 Horror Movies ranked by Metacritic.
