    Anything with Vincent Price gets my highest recommendation! You'll find a lot of his A.I.P. films in the Midnite Movies catalog.

    I also love the Die Monster Die/Dunwich Horror double feature. Tales from the Crypt and Vault of Horror are paired together on another double feature. Those are two of the best horror anthologies from Amicus productions.

    I'd recommend getting "The Beast Within" and "Deranged"/"Motel Hell".

    For me, these:

    Land that Time Forgot/People that Time Forgot (two of my favorite movies, but I love cheesy dinosaur flicks and loved these as a kid)
    Deranged/Motel Hell
    Empire of the Ants/Tentacle
    Yongary/Konga (for Yongary, amazing transfer/restoration job and only if you're into kaiju flicks)
    Killer Klowns from Outer Space (I haven't even seen this one, but the DVD seems pretty amazing)
    Invaders from Mars/Strange Invaders (just because I saw Invaders a whole lot as a kid and really dug it)
    Food of the Gods (ridiculous and fun)

    THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES/DR. PHIBES RISES AGAIN
    COUNT YORGA:VAMPIRE/THE RETURN OF COUNT YORGA
    THE VAMPIRE LOVERS/COUNTESS DRACULA (a Hammer double bill)

    Any of the Roger Corman Poe adaptations are worth a go.THE MONSTER THAT CHALLENGED THE WORLD/IT:THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE is a fun 50's Sci-Fi /horror double header.

    Out of curiosity which Invaders is it that you watched as a kid? I like Strange Invaders alright, but Invaders from Mars, not so much. One Midnight Movie that I really enjoy and that hasn't been mentioned is Bava’s Planet of the Vampires. I'd say check that one out. Also The Man From Planet X.

    Oh, sorry..... I meant Tobe Hooper's Invaders from Mars. I don't even remember how I saw it, I think I must've rented it or saw it at a friend's house, then probably a couple more times on TBS or something.
