    Repulsion (1965) - I really can't explain why I haven't watched this yet. I always wanted too.
    Severance (2006) - Not "famous" but praised much.
    Dead Snow (2009) - same.
    Battle Royale (2000) - Not even sure if this is horror.
    Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky (1991) - same.
    A Serbian Film (2010) - most infamous I guess.

    Rosemary's Baby off the top of my head, but I got the Blu so it's on the agenda.

    Repulsion is great!

    I wouldn't call BR a horror, I thought it was a very average gimmicky action film.

    I still haven't seen a lot of the old Universal monster movies.... except for Dracula and the first two Frankensteins.

    Friday the 13th (I've only seen some of Pt.4)
    Hellraiser
    The Howling
    House
    Children of the Corn
    The Burning
    Silent Night, Deadly Night (seen 4 and 5)
    Saw
    Paranormal Activity
    28 Days Later
    [REC]
    World War Z
    Pontypool
    Walking Dead

    Since you mentioned it:
    Severance (2006)
    A Serbian Film (2010) I want to see it uncut, there's no good HD way to do that.

    Maybe this should go under unpopular opinion but I found Repulsion to be truly terrible. Like, "why isn't this on MST3K?" terrible. I dig B&W 60's thrillers and all, but that was terrible.

    X-Human if you want to see Serbian Film uncut I highly recommend getting the dvd...it still looks great and I think it's such a well made film. I'm not an expert on audio/video but I can't imagine a blu ray being a real giant leap for such a modern film.

    :D

    I would imagine those that haven't seen the Universal films from the 30's and 40's are younger members. Back before home video all these titles played on Television and that is how we watched them.

    I haven't seen A Serbian Film either, and I couldn't be less interested. I don't like movies that are gross just to be gross.

    As for famous horror, I actually think I've done a pretty good job keeping up with them. The only other movies I haven't seen in this thread are Battle Royale and Riki-Oh, and that's because I find J-horror to be tedious.

    Don't Look Now is one I haven't seen, but have always wanted to. Invasion Of The Body Snatches (78) is another I've never seen, even though I own the blu-ray. Looking through the big genre filmmaker's filmographies, I've never seen Romero's Martin or Cronenberg's The Brood.

    There are probably some sequels / remakes I skipped, but those are just famous by association. I've seen Let The Right One In, but I never bothered with Let Me In. I've seen Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer, but I've never seen Henry 2 (even though I own it). I'm sure there's a Hellraiser sequel or two that I missed.

    For me it's sequels. Never seen

    Nightmare on Elm Street > 3
    Halloween > 3
    Friday the 13th > 6
    Hellraiser > 3
    Any Howling, Candyman, or Children of the Corn sequel

    This was the first one that popped into my head as well. For some reason I have no desire to watch it.

    Wow.

    :fucked:

    Repulsion is probably in my top 50 horrors (though it's more thriller).

    Yeah, I haven't seen a lot of sequels either like SNDN > 3, Children of the Corn > 2, Candyman > 2, Howling > 3, Phantasm > 2. Come to think of it, I'm not sure if I've sat through the first Phantasm from beginning to end.

    There are lots of modern horrors I havent bothered to watch mostly the PG13 scarey kids sort of movies. Also sequels to big popular movies meaning I have only seen the first few Saw movies, maybe two Final Destinations and only the first Paranormal Activity.

    There's a lot of classic/popular/well-known horror films I've yet to see. Here's only a handful I can think of off the top of my head and with the help of some popular horror lists:

    Don't Look Know
    The Haunting
    The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
    Freaks
    The Fly (original)
    Return of the Fly
    Carnival of Souls
    Eyes Without a Face
    Peeping Tom
    I Walked With a Zombie
    Possession
    Stephen King's IT
    Cat People (original)
    Ringu
    Ju-on
    The Innocents
    The Masque of Red Death
    Village of the Damned (original)
    And plenty of Hammer films.
