A Nightmare On Elm Street (original)
Friday 13th (original)
Halloween (original)

Those are my top three horrors. You can't beat vintage. I also rec any horror films based on Stephen King books, like The Shining, Christine, Misery, Cujo...almost always great.

The original Texas Chainsaw Massacre is as good as horror movies get.

Another vote for the original A nightmare on Elm Street. If you love it then jump straight to Part 3, then leave the series at that.
The Thing is also a must see.

Plus New Nightmare - makes a great Nancy trilogy.

I've seen them all apart from The Burning and Let Me In. I loved them all.

BTW is Identity a horror or a psychological thriller, or are we thinking of two different films?

Wolf Creek
The Haunting (original 1963)
John Carpenter's The Thing
Wrong Turn 2 (a bit tongue in cheek - but one of the better films of its kind and certainly better than the first Wrong Turn)
Frailty is a bit of a chiller - and REALLY gets you thinking
Devil
Orphan (this one is BRILLIANT)

Loads more - just can't think of them at present.

The Exorcist
The Omen (the original)

Salem's Lot (the original)


Old ones are the best imo.

I remember being terrified at Salem's Lot when it was first on in the late 70's. I bought it recently and let my 14 year old son watch it. He liked it but didn't think it was terribly frightening. I must admit - I didn't think it was that frightening either on second viewing - although I (and my son) appreciate the film's atmosphere. And James Mason was terrific in it.

I agree about the old ones being the best though. For me - nothing quite compares to the original 'The Haunting' ... even though you don't get to see any 'monster' ... its all done through the power of suggestion (and a brilliant soundtrack).

Agree.

I get what you say about Salem's Lot, but that scene with the vampire at the window stayed with me from my childhood, still freaks me out And James Mason is SO creepy!!

That was the fourth one wasn't it? I didn't think it was too bad (for a fourth in a series). I did actually feel sorry for the 'monster' in the end of it though. What a way to go! YUK!

As far as the Alien series of films goes - in order I like:

Aliens (the second one)
Alien 3 (there was just something so terrifying about them having no weapons at all)
Alien
Alien Resurrection
