My Grade Book








Over the last 10 years, I've been keeping a journal of the scary movies and tv series I watch and adding them to this list. It's not an exhaustive list because some movies are just too terrible to acknowledge. Also, my definition of scary movies includes a broad spectrum of horror, thriller, sci-fi, dramas, comedies, animation, and genre-adjacent titles.
