I finally took a look at the list. There are actually 110 films, not 100, on the list. Of the 110 films, I've seen 47, so I have 63 more films to see. Of the 47 I've seen, I liked 31 (66%) and disliked 16 (34%.)

And I'm registered to post at that site, so I'll have to check out the list. While our Ken's "Lair of the White Worm" is listed, I see that his "Gothic" is not, nor is his "The Devils," which some people consider to be a horror film.
