From East Village vampires and serial killer Wall Street yuppies to South Bronx werewolves and brownstone Brooklyn satanists, New York City has been home to some of the most memorably terrifying monsters, creeps, and villains in all of horror cinema. Making potent use of the city’s anything-goes energy and gritty history, these films find horror in both the supernatural and the all-too-real everyday terrors that come with life in one of the world’s most thrillingly unpredictable metropolises.
