These are the formative films in your creation as a horror junkie. No matter how often they get re-released, you MUST have (or are at least severely tempted) to have them in the best edition possible. Mine are (in stream of consciousness order): 1) Phantasm 2) The Fog 3) Halloween 4) Halloween III: Season of the Witch 5) The Howling 6) An American Werewolf in London 7) Creepshow 8) The Beast Within 9) Horror Express 10) Time Walker 11) Salem's Lot 12) The Boogens 13) Creature From The Black Lagoon 14) Shock Waves 15) The Children 16) Frightmare 17) The Incredible Melting Man 18) The Monster Club 19) Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3D 20) The Shining Actually that's it. I think at that point I'm basically padding out the list. As you can see I'm a big Carpenter fan. He takes up a full quarter of the list. I'll leave two slots open just in case somebody else mentions a film that's name escape me at the moment.
