I love horror movies, always have, always will. My questions for you are, what are your favorites, and what are some of the best horror movies that maybe not everyone have seen, some lesser known underrated horror movies that MUST be seen if you are a fan. I personally love The Exorcist, and most horror fans do, but Exorcist III was fantastic as well, and not everyone have seen it, which is a shame. Anyway, what are your favorites, and what flicks should I go out and get immediately that I might not have heard of??

Well I think my favorite horror movie that everyone might not have seen would be Monster Squad, which I'm hoping will be released on DVD soon.

My personal favorite is 'Evil Dead'
As a kid I remember the TV/newspaper ads for a movie called 'Suspiria' that was suppossed to be pretty intense. FOr some reason, I remember the newspaper ads saying how no one was admitted during the final sequence.

Eventually I rented the title when I just happened to walk past it and didn't think it was that great.

I personally liked Evil Dead 2 more than the first and liked Army of Darkness as a "horror-themed" movie the best out of the trilogy.

I think I posted this in the polls recently, but I liked The Ring, The Others, The Exorcist. Black Christmas was good as it set the slasher film and a lot of the future stuff was based or spoofed.

It may be more of a suspense/thriller, but it's exactly the kind of movie you should watch on Halloween...

Les Diaboliques

I don't know. Usually I like the original better, but for some odd reason, I like the remake of Night of the Living Dead better. Wish I could tell you, but it puzzles me.

1. Psycho (1960)
2. Jaws (1975)
3. Alien (1979)
4. The Innocents (1961)
5. Halloween (1978)
6. The Exorcist (1973)
7. The Thing (1982)
8. The Shining (1980)
9. Silence of the Lambs (1991)
10. The Haunting (1963)

11. Aliens (1986)
12. The Ring (2002)
13. Carrie (1976)
14. The Sixth Sense (1999)
15. Night of the Living Dead (1968)
