    It's not on DVD, but the original THE HAUNTING (EDIT: 1963, directed by Robert Wise) is the best horror film ever made. It's broadcast on the TCM channel regularly.

    Also look for THE INNOCENTS, CARNIVAL OF SOULS (original version only), THE UNIVITED, and THE SHINING (Stanley Kubrick version).

    The Shining and Halloween are two classics that you probably don't want to watch alone at night!

    Look no further than The Exorcist, and The Changling.
    The Changling may just be THE finest, and most hair raising haunted house thriller ever made!

    An often-overlooked gem: Lady in White--one of the earliest special-edition DVDs.

    Try to get your hands on the excellent CURSE OF THE DEMON (1957), coming to DVD in August from Columbia Tristar, and a fine Italian-made ghost story, CASTLE OF BLOOD (1964, a.k.a. "LA DANSE MACABRE"), which will be coming to Region 1 DVD relatively soon, in a super-looking print, from Synapse.
    THE SPIRAL STAIRCASE (1946), available on DVD from Anchor Bay, is another good bet, as is Fox's DVD edition of THE LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE (1973), and Elite Entertainment's DVD of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968). Don't forget the top sci-fi chiller INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (1956) from Republic/Artisan, or THE DEVIL RIDES OUT (1968) from Anchor Bay. If you have a long attention span, give Criterion's DVD of the Japanese ghost story anthology KWAIDAN (1964) a try.
    More to consider: BURN WITCH BURN (1961, not on DVD yet, but available as a "Midnite Movie" title on VHS from MGM), Roman Polanski's REPULSION (1965), CAT PEOPLE (1942), I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE (1943) and THE LEOPARD MAN (1943). These aren't on legit American DVD yet, but are on VHS, and are aired once in a while on TCM and similar classic movie channels.
    I second the recommendations of THE CHANGELING, THE HAUNTING ('63), THE INNOCENTS, CITY OF THE DEAD/HORROR HOTEL, BLACK SUNDAY ('60), BLACK SABBATH, BARON BLOOD and CARNIVAL OF SOULS ('62).

    OK, that was a bad joke. (Freddy Got Fingered is still a damn scary movie)


    See the original Nosferatu made by F.W. Murnou! It's the granddaddy of horror movies (although, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari preceeds Nosferatu, it's not nearly as creepy as this). Bela Lugosi is suave as the vampire in Dracula, but Max Shreck chews up scenery when he's not chewing on someone's neck.

    Les Diaboliques (1955) is remarkably frightening. Just don't read anything about it before going in. Watch it very carefully because you'll catch the slightest glimpses of things for only a fraction of a second. You never know if what you see is your imagination or Clouzot playing with you.
    Dario Argento's Suspiria is also really good even if the ending is weak. The cinematography and editing are wonderful but the score is sooo creepy you'll be on the edge or your seat when you're not ducking down into it to avoid the thing behind the couch that's going to grab you. Some truly chilling scenes and a few that will have you grabbing your wife. If she hasn't run out of the room.
    There are a few scenes in Nosferatu that are some of the most horrifying ever filmed if you can truly suspend disbelief for this rather primitive (though revolutionary in its day) effort. Some of the shots are just so unnerving that you'll remember them forever.
    I very much like these two Japanese films. It seems the Japanese are into atmosphere and dread far more than the West is. There is more build, more artistry, and a high Gothic quality to it.
    My most recent acquisition is Kwaidan and it's a marvelous horror film filled with a quiet dread. It is operatic and beautiful yet it's horror is very eastern in a yin kind of way. It is not forceful, it is not brash, it seduces you with opulent sets and an ethereal peace; like the sleeping of the dead. Kwaidan is about sublime nightmares and shades from beyond. I could do without the cheesy voice-over in some places though.
    Onibaba is another Japanese masterpiece that I once saw long ago but remember it being one of the scariest things I had ever seen. That grass! That old woman! It gives me chills just thinking of it.

    Jacob's Ladder & John Carpenters version of the Thing!

    Other intense movies (although in VERY different ways) in case you dont feel like watching a horror movie are:
    -The Vanishing (original)
    -Deterrence

    SESSION 9 was a creepy movie, since everyone else listed my choices already.

    The Sixth Sense.

    Great movie.. just watched it again the other night.

    It would seem that it had some influence on "The Others" as well.
