    As others have said, MGM has such a long history of releasing and distributing great horror movies. Between what they originally theatrically released and have since gained rights to (video, tv, cable, dvd, blu-ray, etc), I think I will have to say Mario Bava's BLACK SABBATH. Will that title be allowed since the US version is shown on MGM HD?

    Although there are many to choose from, there can only be one:

    Witchfinder General - one of the finest Vincent Price performances and it's release by MGM has made so very happy!!!:banana:

    I think top spot goes to Poltergeist but Return of the Living Dead is a very close runner up!

    ROTLD by far! It has the right amount of comedy mixed in with the horror element. One of my all time favorite movies.

    Far too many to list... If I had to pick one, it'd be Return of the Living Dead. Grew up watching that one.

    Favorite MGM Horror movie? Poltergeist III

    Yes, it's a bad film and had a ton of production problems...but I've always loved it.

    Definitely Child's Play, it's a favorite of mine since I was a kid. I love ROTLD, but I got to see or know about its existence way later than Child's Play, and being older kinda took away that nostalgia that adds some extra flavor to classic movies.

    Agreed. Love love love this movie! So thankful it's on BD already. Hopefully the sequels won't be far behind.
    Yeah From Beyond was terrific. I'd love to have that on BD!

    The Fog. Always it has been one of my top films from MGM/Carpenter. Carpenter does a great job here, with some of my favorite genre actors, Curtis, Holbrook, Barbeau, and Atkins making a strong presence. Music, atmosphere, and story are deliver some of the best scares I remember as a child.

    I'm going to say The Burning (which I would love to see on blu) as I think it's a really decent slasher flick with a cool killer and great gore.

    If I stick with films they actually produced I guess I'd have to go with POLTERGEIST.I saw that film opening day in a packed house and I can still hear the screams.The audience went nuts for that flick,still one of the best reactions I've ever seen to a film of any genre.Add to that I love Jerry Goldsmith's work and that film features one of his finest scores (and that's saying a lot !).

    MGM has issued many of my favorites to DVD over the years.I'm especially fond of all the classics from the A.I.P library.They do great work.

    Motel Hell: it has some fond memoriesfor me as a teen and it is a fun twisted movie. I enjoy breaking it out a few times a year. It will be on my October movies to-be-watched list.

    Amityville II: The Posession...But I have a feeling that I'll probably change my mind the more I think of it.....Misery & Empire of the Ants come in a close second though....

    The Brood. Cronenberg at his best, and his one genuinely scary horror film.

    Return of the Living Dead.

    It would be one of my favorite movies from any studio.

    Poltergeist. One night while at a sleep over at a friends house when I was like 8 or 9 I convinced her parents to rent it for us. I remember looking back over my shoulder during the scene with the bodies in the pool and seeing all the rest of the girls with their hands over their eyes. I wasn't scared, I was filled with some sort of amazing high, like when you ride a roller coaster for the first time. Realizing that I was the only one that felt that way really made me feel special.
