The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
Critics Consensus: An eccentric, campy, technically impressive, and frightening picture, James Whale's Bride of Frankenstein has aged remarkably well.

Psycho (1960)
Critics Consensus: Infamous for its shower scene, but immortal for its contribution to the horror genre. Because Psycho was filmed with tact, grace, and art, Hitchcock didn't just create modern horror, he validated it.

No way is Psycho the number one film.  It wasn't even scary!  Maybe it was back in 1960.  And Shawn of the Dead was a comedy.  If we are including comedies, where is the first Return of the Living Dead?

And the Descent should also be on there.
