    I especially remember a Christopher Lee movie called "Drink the Blood of Dracula" being particularly chilling.

    The Exorcist - Released in 1973, I read the book and finally saw the movie at the age of 18 in 1987. It had been 'banned' in my Christian parents' household, but maybe they had a point: I couldn't sleep after watching it!

    Did anyone find the medical procedures performed on Regan to be even worse than the actual possession?

    Rosemary's Baby- creepy old neighbors anyone? How about that dream sequence of Mia Farrow's??

    Psycho- Those violins and the shower scene still keep me riveted. That was probably the first modern horror film

    Wait Until Dark- 1967. Audrey Hepburn plays a blind woman tormented by drug-dealers in this horror film, and was nominated for an academy award as best actress. Very view-worthy! I would recommend it!

    Silence of the Lambs- This is amazing to this day. The book made me afraid as an adult male to walk down the street at night alone

    Halloween, the original - 1978. It was revolutionary to watch a horror film from the viewpoint of the killer. I watched it on TV as a 12 yr old and slept with the lights on for a lonngg time after

    I think no one mentioned The Hunger with Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon. I watched it for the first time last year and had to make pauses from time to time - it was so tense . but maybe it's b/e I'm so sensitive to bleeding necks scenes...
    plus of course:
    Psycho (plus first sequel)
    A Nightmare on the Elm Street
    Halloween (but imho mainly the first part)
    The Orphanage

    plus I'm a great fan of the Japanese and the Korean horrors, like The Ring or The Tale of Two Sisters.

    Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. The combination of horror and comedy was priceless!

    I just remembered The Mist. I really enjoyed this movie, loved the religious undertones and the ending was not your typical horror movie ending. Not sure if this was a remake, if so then I am referring to the more recent version and not the original.

    I think that was the original version. The bugs were kind of nasty-looking.

    I forgot about the Hunger. When I first saw it, I was so impressed I went back the very next day and saw it twice more. The most stunning soundtrack.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    Not a big horror movie fan. But the scariest movie I ever saw was Trilogy of Terror. Had nightmares for years and had to check under my bed for the voodoo man.

    Suspiria is the top of the list for me. It contains what was considered by some the most brutal death scene on film, but the early Argento violence was less about shocking and more about creating beautiful and dream like images, IMO. The fantastic soundtrack is just as important as the film, and there are some amazingly beautiful scenes, sets, and camera work. Il Maestro, indeed.

    The original Dawn of the Dead is not only a great horror, but an all around great film. Romero being produced by Argento, what more can you ask for?

    I'm pretty fond of zombie movies. Lucio Fulci's Zombie is pretty atsmopheric and creepy, and contains an awesome face off between a zombie and a shark. (Really) Cemetary Man (Dellamorte, Dellamore) is very good. Return of the living Dead (which is not a Romero film, btw) is a pretty good example of horror/comedy, and has a great '80's feel to it. Romero's Day of the Dead is not as good as Dawn, but is very under rated, and a pretty good film.

    Nightbreed is a pretty cool fantasy horror from 1990.

    I've found that movies from the '70's tend to be pretty grim and brutal (Last house on the Left, Hills have Eyes, Texas chainsaw, etc), the '80's are campier, and the mid/late nineties onwards became what some call "torture porn", ie Saw, Hostel, Seven, Wolf Creek, etc.

    I generally see films for the Director: Argento, Romero, and Soavi are my favourites, though dated. I've seen some grest films by Fruit Chan and Chan wook-Park (never sure how to get his name right). They are just two of many great Asian directors.

    I went through a period where I watched some underground films (including the hideous August Underground trilogy), but don't reccommend it to anyone else.

    Finally, I would say the scariest film I've seen to date was the Exorcist, and I hold no religious views, so it's an impressive feat to scare me with that subject matter.

    The best horror movie I have seen lately is The Midnight Meat Train. Didn't have any great expectations about it but it was actually good.

    I actually don't like horror movies but I just watched Trick 'R Treat... and I liked it. It's an anthology of four Halloween stories. Anna Paquin and Brian Cox are the biggest names of the film.

    I don't watch many horror movies, especially the new ones. They're usually too gory for me. I'm actually having a hard time thinking of many, but I'd say these, before I look at others' responses:

    Psycho (original)
    The Haunting (original)

    More suspense than horror:
    Night Must Fall
    The Changeling (70's George C. Scott movie)
    Don't Look Now
    The Spiral Staircase (original)

    ETA: Just realized this an old thread, and I posted back then, probably with a whole different set of answers.

    I stay away from horror films at all cost, but I did see the original Halloween back in the days. The film still hold up today quite well today. I think John Carpenter's career started and ended with that film though, since he never directed another hit again.

    I loved Polanski's The Tenant. Nightmarish as hell.
