A possessed Regan smiles in 1973's "The Exorcist."

The 1970s was a period of great innovation for cinema, as it brought groundbreaking features like The Godfather, Taxi Driver (one of Martin Scorsese's best movies), and Star Wars to theaters. Such achievements are especially true for horror, as more films experimented with taboo subjects such as sex, religion, and murder.

Also, by introducing unique concepts and visuals to horror, the genre gave us a host of successful pictures that challenged what people thought could and should be done on film. With Halloween soon approaching, movie lovers should take the time to revisit these 10 exemplary horror films of the 1970s.

Even for a filmmaker as celebrated as Luca Guadagnino, remaking one of the most beloved and iconic horror movies in history isn’t an easy thing to do. Nonetheless, just one year after Call Me By Your Name launched him to the top of the international cinema scene, that’s exactly what the director did. Assembling a crew of talented collaborators, including Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, modern Scream Queen Mia Goth, and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Guadagnino set out in 2016 to finally make his own interpretation of Dario Argento’s giallo horror classic, Suspiria.

The resulting film, an oppressively drab, operatic exploration of supernatural horror, looks and feels like a purposeful counter to the Argento original, rather than a straightforward remake. Guadagnino’s Suspiria eschews many of its predecessor's defining aspects — namely, its vibrant color palette, surrealist direction, and prog rock score. For these reasons, the film proved somewhat divisive, and its box office earnings left plenty to be desired.
