    A done to death topic but so easy to voice opinions to that it's always popular.

    Believe it or not, some horror films were made before the 80s and 70s; three classics that come immediately to my mind are:

    1) Nosferatu
    2) Bride of Frankenstein
    3) Fearless Vampire Killers

    I agree with eagermuscle on Nosferatu.

    My other choices would be:

    The Exorcist
    An American Werewolf in London
    House of Wax with Vincent Price (1953)
    The Shining (1980)
    Pyscho

    Why, thank you swall1963!

    Actually, I always thought the original 1933 "Mystery of the Wax Museum" with "King Kong's" Fay Wray was better than the 1953 Vincent Price remake. Especially the awesome shock ending, one of the most surprising in film history - if you didn't see that last five seconds coming, imagine how 1933 audiences felt!

    If you talk to actual horrorfanatics they alwayssss give the "safe" answers that are critically well received like Halloween, Shining, Rosemary's Baby, The Thing, Black Christmas, etc. when no one wants to admit that most of those films have aged not too well in some aspects. In actuality, the best horror films are [REC], The Descent, Eden Lake, and 28 Days/Weeks Later, at least for my ADD-generation ;P

    While Eden Lake is an awesome movie, I didn't really see it as being a "horror" movie like The Strangers.

    I really love the 2006 remake of "Black Christmas." It's campy but a pretty high-quality slasher flick.

    not a big horror fan but there are some flicks that just stuck with me.

    *The Grudge (Japanese remake)

    *Scream Trilogy (1,2,3)

    *U turn, about some psycho killer killing college students in the forest.

    **There also was a Japanese or Chinese? film (foreign), very strange and freaky! Basically plot were this one chick was like working for a funeral home, she's into like corpses and shit! Like she's in love with them! her boyfriend couldn't satisfy her alive or something! He ended up committing suicide because he wanted her to made love with his corpse! I swear after watching that film, I was traumatized and never wanted to see another Asian horror film ever again. Forget the title though !!! icon_neutral.gificon_neutral.gificon_neutral.gif
