    Top five? Man, you're harsh. Even a top ten wouldn't be doing the genre justice. But, since you ask:

    1. Halloween
    2. Friday the 13th, Part II
    3. Madman
    4. Sleepaway Camp
    5. Prom Night

    One you get down to the lower ones, that's where it gets more interesting. Who wants to see Halloween, Friday 2, etc. a million times?

    Wow....exact same list here, except I'd substitute Prom Night with He Knows You're Alone.

    ...God I fuckin' love Terror Train...:D

    1) Halloween (and my favorite film in general)
    2) Halloween II
    2) Friday the 13th Part IV
    4) Sleepaway Camp
    5) The Final Terror

    But top 5 is not really adequate. if you said top 15 I could give a good list!

    Yeah, come on DeathDealer...this is your thread, your rules. Change it to top twenty! And why all the love for Stagefright? Cool flick, the Aussies sure put out a bunch of quality slashers, but it never totally stood out for me.

    Are we talking about the same film? I'm discussing the fantastic Italian film by Soavi. One of the few films that was both actually SCARY at parts and furiously enjoyable at others.

    No, we aren't. I was referring to this Stage Fright (aka Nightmares). Still haven't seen the Soavi one, I'll have to give it a spin.
