A lot of “conservative movie” lists really push the meaning of “conservative” beyond its strict dictionary limits, veering into the realms of libertarianism, Objectivism and anarchy.

(Starship Troopers [1997]?! Not sure what Burke or Kirk would think of those co-ed showers…)

Frankly, the following list is no exception. I don’t mean to suggest by using the word “conservative” that any of these films provide viewers with either a transcendent and deeply meaningful artistic experience or with models for living a moral life. Being horror films, they are neither wholesome nor particularly edifying.

It’s impossible for me to imagine William F. Buckley, Jr. watching, let alone approving of, any of these movies.
