    One of my favorites is a TV movie from the early 70s titled 'Haunts Of The Very Rich". I remember seeing this as a rerun when I was a kid. The premise: A group of people meet on an airplane flying to an unknown destination for an exotic vacation. As events unfold they start to question whether they are dead or alive.

    I think the spookiest movie I've ever watched was the original "When A Stranger Calls" with Carol Kane.

    I think this is the movie that turned me on to vampires. I still expect to end up like one of Catherine Deneuve's former lovers.

    My favourite sci-fi and slightly offbeat movie is Slither, which is sort of like a B-rated horror/scifi movie that doesn't take itself too seriously.

    I'll never forget an Australian movie with a young Sam Neill and even younger Nicole Kidman and Billy Zane. It was riveting and chilling. Not science fiction, not slasher really, but mesmerizing and frightening to the innermost parts of my scrot!

    There are really only two science fiction movies that I've seen which I thought were really good: 2010 (not 2001: A Space Odyssey) and Contact. Both were thoughtful movies that at least made some attempt to get the science right. And which can hold my interest (unlike 2001).

    Alien was quite good as far as scary movies go.

    Check out 'Moon' for sci-fi, and 'The Awakening' for spooks. Avoid the trailers—they give too much away.

    The 9 's with Ryan Renolds. You will need to watch if more than once.
