    À l'intérieur - The movie really broke a couple of grounds in the modern horror world.

    I've got to go with Suspiria, but Martyrs or Let the Right One In are right up there.

    The Housing With Laughing Windows - a combo giallo - horror film. The ending is almost unbearably intense. And I have should have seen that twist coming.

    I would have to say Zombie. It was the first Italian horror film I saw as a kid so it holds a lot of nostalgic value for me. I remember renting the big vhs box from Hollywood Video from their cult classics section. Became an instant fan of Fulci and of the genre.

    Tenebre - It's what really got me started watching foreign films.

    A Tale Of Two Sisters (South Korea) for me, no question about it.

    I would have to say Phenomena. What a strange and beautiful yet sick and twisted horror film. Maybe not his best but it's actually the first Argento film I had ever watched and I was blown away. This caused me to seek out his films, plus films by the likes of Lucio Fulci, Mario Bava, and many others. I was hooked and have been ever since.

    This is a tough one, a lot of my favorites are foreign, and my absolute favorite changes pretty regularly, but I will go with Eyes Without A Face.

    Suspiria for me. I can't imagine that anyone will ever make a more cinematic horror film. The score and cinematography are unmatched. It's proof that you can make a sensational horror film without a great script.

    Had to be Franco. Ever since I first saw this beauty NIGHT OF THE SHOOTING STARS, I've been entranced with its visuals. Franco really outdid himself... and with one of the most haunting endings I've ever seen. Fantastic on the newly released Bluray too!

    I'll go with An American Werewolf in London. Really loved this film film as a teenager. Saw it in the theater twice. I've owned it on laserdisc, two DVD's, and now blu-ray.

    Most of the ones I like are already mentioned, so I have another that hasn't been mentioned, and that is Evil Dead Trap from Japan.

    It has good pacing, creepy atmosphere, and is influenced by the works of Argento and Fulci.

    Suspiria. Do I need to really explain why? Argento's masterpiece with great Direction, cinematography, kills and set pieces, not to mention one of the best horror scores of all time from Italian supergroup Goblin.

    Suspiria, hands down. It's what inspired me to pursue film as a career.

    Dario Argento's Phenomena would be my pick!

    Love the dreamy atmosphere, the insane finale and Jennifer Connely's performance.
