    For fun and ideas, I'm looking for as many people as possible to list 10 (in no particular order) horror movies you plan on watching this week before Halloween.

    Here's mine...

    The Thing ('82)
    The Haunting (the original)
    Night of the Living Dead (B&W and/or remake)
    Halloween (yeah, I know, but you can never go wrong with this movie!)
    The Raven (hell, any Corman/Price/Poe movie!)
    Evil Dead 2
    Nightmare Before Christmas (always a tough one, x-mas movie of Halloween movie?)
    Lifeforce
    Carrie
    Creature from the Black Lagoon

    I know, no Hammer on the list. I think they deserve a list of their own, eh?

    Have fun and-in the immortal words of Mr. Romero-stay scared!
    Jim

    Ten? There's usually only one horror movie I need to watch in order to get really spooked (it's consequently the only one that really has spooked me)...

    The Shining

    But I'll play along and list 9 more I want to see this time of year:

    9. Night of the Living Dead
    8. Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    7. Friday the 13th
    6. Creepshow 2
    5. Poltergeist
    4. Dead Alive
    3. American Gothic
    2. Psycho
    1. Carrie

    You might want to check out this thread in the Movies section, Jim. It's a lot like yours and may be why you're not getting much of a response here (EDIT: whoops. In the time it took me to write this I see you've gotten a much bigger response. More power to you!)

    http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...hreadid=161940


    I'm a real sucker for Halloween (by far my favorite holiday) so I'll bite. I don't know if I can list ten though...

    My girlfriend and I watched The Ring (American version) with her family (six sisters!) and it was a lot of fun listening to them all scream.

    Watched The Howling with a friend who'd never seen it before. Really stood the test of time and was even better than I remembered. I think having John Sayles write the screenplay helped a lot.

    From Netflix I have May, Blair Witch Project and Kwaidan (recommended by several people here) waiting to be screened - unfortunately my projector is in the unfriendly hands of Sanyo right now (that's a whole other thead) but may be shipped back to me on Monday, so I can't watch anything for the time being...

    I also hope to watch Masque of the Red Death (there's a great Corman/Price/Poe flick for ya!) Below, 28 Days Later (haven't seen it but want to rent it) and Suspiria (saving that one for Halloween night, I think.)

    That leaves one left to select from my collection. Maybe The Omen, because one of my girlfriend's sister's hasn't seen it - or The Exorcist, which, believe it or not, she hasn't seen either...It's a lot of fun to watch great horror movies with someone who's never seen them before. You get to experience their reaction, where as you yourself might be a little jaded toward them.

    The extensive contents of Warner Bros.' Lon Chaney Collection, which is set for release the Tuesday before Halloween. [​IMG] That doesn't add up to ten films (four, in fact, if you count the reconstruction of the lost London After Midnight), but it certainly adds up to a full evening.

    Well, in my home, I'm hosting the 2nd annual Halloween movie night. LOL. It's not as big as I'm making it sound. Just a few friends coming over for an all-nighter, eating pizza, drinking beer and watching back-to-back horror movies until we all pass out. lol.

    Last year, all of the movies we watched were in my own collection. This year, I'm renting titles, even I have never seen before. So far, these are the titles on that list:

    The Amityville Horror
    House of 1,000 Corpses
    Last House On The Left

    Does anyone have any other suggestions?? I'm more or less looking for great movies from the late 70s, early 80s, the era before horror movies turned "soft". lol
