Interesting that your list contains mostly classics. I've felt that there's kind of a renaissance in horror over the past decade. We've gotten a bunch of really interesting and well made movies.
As for The Shining, maybe I've just seen it too many times. Speaking of Kubrick, I came upon The Making of Full Metal Jacket on YT a couple of days ago and couldn't stop watching.
Haha well I'm old so there is that
I don't disagree with you but I've just felt many of them fail to reach Top 10 status for me. Hereditary, The Descent and The Conjuring all stood out and broke into my list though. The Conjuring in particular was good because it managed to scare totally with atmosphere, embraced cliches and went beyond them. It managed all of that with a PG-13 too. James Wan is pretty talented.
It Follows is another one I really enjoyed but the ending of the movie really brought down the whole experience for me enough that I dropped it.
Playing: Wildermyth, Mass Effect Legendary, Returnal
