With an average IMDb score of 6.5 from over 20 horror movies released in 1972 you could say it was actually a pretty good year for horror movies. Sure there were some duds (Daughters of Satan, The Legend of Boggy Creek), but we also got some real gems like The Night Stalker (1972) and Morgiana (1972) to name just a few. As horror fans we've come to expect a wide ranging degree of quality from our vice but in 1972 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 1972 - Top 50 Horror Movies ranked by Amazon.
