    The Exorcist (though now me and my pals laugh our arse off at it.
    The Ring.
    Grudge, Japanese and English version. (ok, this one does occasionally freak me out..) We use it to scare new friends in the group nowadays.

    Im not a big fan of the "gore" genre.. movies such as Saw and Hostel turn me off... give me a good haunted house movie every time... among my faves...

    Session 9 (2001)
    http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0261983/

    The Changeling (1980)
    http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0080516/

    Burnt Offerings (1976)
    http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0074258/

    The Woman in Black (1989) (the original not the remake)
    http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0098672/

    As others have mentioned, Im also a big fan of asian horror, again the likes of The Ring, The Grudge etc

    Oh and one of my all time fave sci-fi horror has to be:
    Event Horizon (1997)
    http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0119081/

    I'm a hoarder when it comes to movies - got rid of my dvd collection, now just have several external drives containing digital coppies of my horror collection accessed by XBMC
  7. Night on Bald Mountain (Fantasia) - seen when very young...

    Quarantine. That's about it. I'm not a huge fan of the horror genre. I think mostly because out of all the genres horror films seem to have the least amount of plot and/or character development.
  9. I liked silent hill that movie rocks

    Well, I can't list them all as there are just way too many. But here are some of my all time favorites:

    1. The Shining
    2. Psycho
    3. The Exorcist
    4. Night of the Living Dead
    5. The Ring (Japanese version, most definitely)
    6. Nosferatu (both the 1922 and 1979 versions)

    I'm tempted to add the Australian film, "Lake Mungo" onto that list, but I'm yet undecided. Have to watch it again to check if it still makes the hairs on my arms stand on their ends. Haha!

    Hellraiser is the one movie that really freaked me out when I saw it in the theatre. The Evil Dead/Army Of Darkness series is always fun to watch around Halloween!

    I was never a big horror movie fan, more sci-fi I guess, but I did like space horror movies, and my favorite would have to be the Alien movies. Aside from that, I do remember the Signs movie was not bad either. Oh yea and the Fire in the Sky was decent too

    Poltergeist!
  18. Well, too much to say, but every japanese (or Asian) version horror movies that remake by America are not that good..

    lol so true. The only problem is it's not much of a horror if you know the ending though lol. You would have to been living under a very big rock to not know what happened to the Titanic lol.
