They Came From Within: A History of Canadian Horror Cinema

By no means is this an exhaustive list of Canadian Horror films. These titles are those written about in Caelum Vatnsdal's fantastic book of the same name (the 2014 revised and updated edition) published by Arbeiter Ring Publishing.

I finally got around the reading this book and wanted to create this list so that I don't forget to seek out some titles, especially the oddities of the tax shelter era. There are quite a few other titles referenced only in passing, which I have not included here.
