    1) A Nightmare on Elm Street as I was a kid, and it was sick.:eek:
    2) Exorcist because for its Time it was completely un-paralleled :cool:
    3) The Ring because in the midst of a million terrible horror movies, I believe this movie redefined what was scary.:thinking:

    Haha nice.

    If you like American Werewolf in London I recommend checking out "the Howling". It came out the same year and was overshadowed by AWiL but it's a good Werewolf film.

    My top seven (in no particular order):

    a. The legend of Hell House (lousy cinematography but it's one of the best "technical" horror films of it's genre)

    b. The Silence of the Lambs (Anthony Hopkins plays Hannibal Lector like no other actor could)

    c. Constantine (not really true to it's comic book roots but I'm a sucker for Rachel Weiss in a tub of water).

    d. Evil Dead (again not an especially scary movie but it stars my favorite B mobie actor).

    e. Rocky Horror Picture Show (A cult classic albeit not a really horror movie by any stretch of the imagination!)

    f. The Pit and the Pendulum (a classic Edgar Allan Poe story starring Vincent Price)

    g. Poltergeist

    Last couple 'horror' films I watched:
    In the Mouth of Madness:
    In the Mouth of Madness (1995) - IMDb

    Ravenous:
    Ravenous (1999) - IMDb

    Both are fairly main-stream though.

    Cinemassacre is doing a "camp cult" review of campy horror movies this month. A different movie every day:
    Cinemassacre Productions

    Night of the Demon (1980):
    Night of the Demon (1980) - IMDb
    Looks really bizzare. A Bigfoot running around tearing people apart.

    I am watching this silent movie called "Haxan: Witchcraft through the Ages" It's a Danish movie from 1922. It's actually not bad. It's more of a lecture/documentary on witches than a movie, crazy images.

    Hey bust this thread back open. I love horror. I'm what you call a movie buff, and horror is my all time favorite genre. I can't give you a list of my favorites, because I pretty much like it all. I can give you a list of movies I can't stand...

    1) Rob Zombie's Halloween 2
    2) Saw (yeah I said it!)
    3) Rob Zombie's The Blob. (yeah so its not even greenlit yet, but I'm sure he'll f*** it up. Rob should stick to his own films and stop doing remakes.)

    BTW, who remembers...

    That's a great picture flick right there!

    I don't see many foreign movies in this thread...not that I'm not into American horror films, there are some really great ones, but if you're a true horror buff you should check out Martyrs (French), the Orphanage (Spanish), and Oldboy (Korean). I did see someone mention those last two.

    Rec 1 was good, love that movie. I don't know, I didn't see what everyone was talking about with Let the Right One In. I probably need to watch it again. It was decent, just not the greatest vampire movie ever made like people said.

    Salem's Lot
    Dracula (the original)
    Son of Dracula

    J know there's more but can't think of any more. Maybe you guys will jog my memory?

    The vampire genre is one that is sorely lacking in film IMO... I think the best FILM that also happens to be a vampire movie is Interview with the Vampire, and that movie is not scary in the slightest. Lost Boys is probably my favorite vampire movie though. Other than that, meh. I thought 30 Days of Night was kind of lame.
