List Rules
Vote up your favorite horror films that were released between 1970 and 1979

The best '70s horror movies redefined not only an entire genre, but a generation. President Richard Nixon’s resignation, the age of disco, the end of the Vietnam War, the oil crisis, and the Camp David Accords – for most, these are the highlights of the 1970s decade. For others, it was The Exorcist, Halloween, and Dawn of the Dead

Let’s face it, some of the movies from this decade were just, to be polite, cheesy. Fortunately, others from this decade have more than stood the test of time and are still regarded as being some of the best movies of all time. Whether you’re in the mood for more of a realistic thriller, a cheesy girl’s night kind of flick, or an old scary movie that was based on actual events, there’s a horror movie on this list that will make your night.
