The Horror Honeys: Friday Favorites ~ Horror Education!

Friday Favorites ~ Horror Education!

It's time to enter the classroom with the Horror Honeys! Please put away all of your radioactive spitballs, and make sure your mogwai is safely stowed in your backpack. Today, the Honeys have created a syllabus of sorts for you little monsters; whether you are just starting your journey as a student of horror (thanks Scott Derrickson!) or are looking to expand your horror horizons, these are the movies each Honey has handpicked especially for you. Painstakingly narrowed down to five a piece, the Honeys believe that the following films will teach you most about the art of horror: past, present, and hopefully... future!

Which of these films is YOUR favorite? What would you include on your horror syllabus? Let us know on Twitter, using #studentofhorror!
