The Blair Witch Project is vastly underrated. Scariest film ever made in my view.

Candy Man
I Know What You Did Last Summer - I don't get the hate with this film.
Eden Lake
Severance - This film is just hilarious
Wolf Creek
The Woman
Bereavement
Cabin Fever - Shocking, Clever and vastly underrated
Planet Terror
Death proof
Wrong Turn 1+2
Rogue
Trick r Treat
Wes Craven's New Nightmare
Scream 4
The Return
Strangers
2001 Maniacs
Donkey Punch
Jeepers Creepers
The Return
Halloween 4
Stephen Kings It - Are they still re-making this into a TV series.

And the remake of House of Wax deserves some much needed praise for it's fabulous scene in which Paris Hilton's character was famously killed of.

Innocent Blood

Comedy horror at its very best and one of my favourite John Landis movies.

Its a travesty that this film is not available in the UK on DVD or blu-ray.

The Mist - it's been mentioned already, but it really is a great horror film.

The Thing (2011) - it's taken a pounding from many people, but I don't understand why. I thought it was a decent prequel & seamlessly leads into the 1982 film, almost as if it's the same film.
Agree not bad its difficult to emulate the classic 1982 version ..!...liked the ending !

The link you provided was of a remote control plane or remote control car or something.

A link which seems to have mysteriously disappeared.

The Legend of Hell House, one of the last British horrors, starring the legendary Roddy Mc Dowell. Once a staple of Fear on Friday, this deeply unsettling and sinister film about a haunted house has fallen off the radar in recent years.

never really liked event horizon..all the elements were there, it was a bit like hellraiser in space the first hour was great but the second half was crap..it had some shockingly bad editing.
i would like to see a directors cut one day

Did you see it at the cinema? It was awesome on the big screen, but I always felt it lost something on TV.

I did indeed, it looks good and the actors are good but the second half feels like most of it ended up on the cutting room floor after a really atmospheric and spooky start

No one seems to mention the 1979 version of Dracula, with Frank Langella, which was set in Whitby and for once didn't have Epping Forest posing as Transylvania.

So who did add the link?

It didn't seem like an advertisment link, because I had to click on it to see it.

And the link has since disappeared.

That was the “director’s cut”. Paul Anderson screened the film to a dozen people at a private theatre on the lot at Twickenham just prior to sending it to the States. I was there and Anderson was obsessive about keeping to a lean running time rather than adding to the length. He wanted feedback at that screening on where to add some additional music and sound-effects to boost the scares but the cut itself was locked in place and was exactly as he wanted it with no interference from “the suits”, I know because he said so.

Any desire, from him or the studio, to stick stuff back in subsequently is entirely money-driven. The Director’s Cut has been available since day one.
