Dawn of the Dead (Remake)... I freak out everytime a zombie dashes at top speed... awesome...


Technically not a horror movie, but a psychological thriller, 12 Monkeys gives me the creeps...


The original Nightmare on Elm Street is just a classic to me...

Candyman (1992)


I'm sure I've left others out. Probably most notably, I left out Exorcist. Although I think it's a well crafted film, I don't find it scary (or really enjoyable) at all. I would actually rank Exorcist 2 or 3 higher.


Also, I don't understand how people consider Jaws a scary movie.

I can't deal with the Saw series, and Scream terrified me when I first watched it as a 13 year old. In no particular order:

- Cube

- Silence of the Lambs (not really scary, but the last scene is great)

- The Shining

- Dog Soldiers deserves a mention for being ridiculous

- Event Horizon - more sci fi, but the uncut version is pretty disturbing

- Don't Look Now - the final scene is pretty much the strangest, most disturbing thing I have seen on film

- The Omen - particularly scary as I released I share my birthday with Damien down to the hour...
