With an average IMDb score of 6.5 from over 10 horror movies released in 1976 you could say it was actually a pretty good year for horror movies. Sure there were some duds (Bloodsucking Freaks, Island of Death), but we also got some real gems like The Tenant (1976) and The Omen (1976) to name just a few. As horror fans we've come to expect a wide ranging degree of quality from our vice but in 1976 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 1976 - Top 20 Horror Movies ranked by Metacritic.
