According to Slash, 1968 was the best year ever for horror films.

The ex-Guns n' Roses guitarist -- and horror-film producer -- was asked to name his Top 5 horror films by Rolling Stone, and he picked three that were released in 1968 -- Night of the Living Dead, The Omen and Rosemary's Baby.

Also making the cut -- 1973's The Exorcist, which he says is "not as scary as Night of the Living Dead, [but] it's got all the components to make a really compelling movie." And he also loves 1982's The Thing, which is "one of the most visually appealing and hair-raising movies of all time."
