The second season of AMC's The Walking Dead premieres on October 16th. And by all accounts it promises to be bigger, bolder and more badass than season 1. I recently chatted with star Andrew Lincoln (a.k.a. Rick Grimes); and since he told me he was quite a horror fan when he was a teenager, I asked Lincoln to name his top 5 horror films. Check out the list of faves he shared with me after the jump.

 "1.) The Omen had a profound effect and terrified me. I remember watching that when I was only about ten or eleven years old with my brother, who was eighteen years older than me, and two other friends. And I remember just watching it and being absolutely mortified by it. My brother walked up to me and said, "And it's all real. It's all in the Bible!" I remember being absolutely terrified about Revelations and The Omen. 2.) Don't Look Now was a terrifying movie which I loved, which I saw much later. 3.) I only saw The Exorcist when I was in my early ‘20s. I always avoided it. Just the soundscape in that movie was extraordinary. I remember the sound being just as terrifying as the image. 4.) The Shining is a beautifully made movie. 5.) Jaws has gotta be there. It's one of the great movies of all time."
