Top 5 that have not been mentioned yet...

1) Alucarda - Very wicked flick by Juan Lopez Moctezuma (The Mansion of Madness). My Life With the Thrill Kill Cult fans should know that this was the film where a lot of samples were used on "and This Is What the Devil Does."

2) Blood Feast - I still love the Gore Trilogy of HG Lewis and David F Friedman filmed in 63-4 (The last one was not released until '65), my interest in them dating back to when I was renting tapes when tapes were packaged in the big boxes. Maybe not THE first, but certainly one of the first Gore flicks.

3) City of the Living Dead - aka the Gates of Hell, this was my first Fulci favorite. A classic with a fantastic score.

4) Last House on Dead End Street - Yes, you read that right, not On the Left but Roger Watkins' angry trip that was filmed in the Winter of 72-3 and not released until much later. A favorite in the 42'nd Street district, this certainly was dark, filmed on the cheap, and starring the Director in a very twisted role.

5) Flesh for Frankenstein - Udo Kier in one of his most over the top roles ever. Lots of obvious effects for 3D, but still having a serious bloody Gothic feeling and with GREAT cinematography and fine music. In The US, this was picked up by Bryanston, then later presented by Monarch after the infamous company's close - The 3D version was a small hit in The Deuce area of NYC especially when Monarch played it to theaters who would also play Blood for Dracula, another Bryanston pick-up under the title Andy Warhol's Dracula and then bought up by Central Park Films as (get this) Andy Warhol's Young Dracula (talk about your cheesy title changes, which were many back then).

I like some of the original Japanese horror films like Ju-On & Ringu. Silence of the Lambs is definitely in there. I love Jaws but not as a horror anymore like it was to me when I was younger, more just an appreciation of a great film. Hmm I need to think of some more.

I'm pretty sure I answered a similar thread like this before but I'll do it again.

In no particular order

1. The Strangers
2. Insidious
3. Event Horizon
4. Martyrs
5. High Tension

Scariest Movie? The Ring believe it or not. I attempted to watch it on my own the first time and even during the day when I first saw it. It was pretty hard for me to get through.

My favorite slasher has to be Nightmare on Elm Street 3 the one about the dream warriors. I love that movie so much!

making claims about being a badass is no joke ma'am.

It's supposed to be taken super seriously
