    Audition
    Stir of Echoes
    Ravenous
    Stigmata

    Picking 4 would be easy. I had trouble picking a 5th...

    The 13th Warrior
    Stir of Echoes
    Ringu 2
    Ravenous

    I would have chosen Kolobos if it would have made the cut.

    In order of preference:

    The Blair Witch Project
    Ravenous
    Audition
    The Rage: Carrie 2 - much better than I thought it'd be. Expected crap, really enjoyed it.
    Idle Hands - same as Carrie 2.

    The Rage: Carrie 2 (harpoon to the dick, 'nuff said)
    The Blair Witch Project (THE film of the 90s?)
    Idle Hands (probably has aged terribly, but was a fun ride at the time)
    End of Days (Liked the understated performance by Arnie in this, and some dark imagery by Hyams)
    House on Haunted Hill (fun Hollywood fluff, beat The Haunting at its own game)

    Stir of Echoes
    Ravenous (one of my favorite horror movies of the 90s)
    The Blair Witch Project
    Lake Placid (I did enjoy this, but immediately after voting I realized I'd missed The House on Haunted Hill, which I definitely would have voted for first.)

    That is one of the nastiest insults I have ever heard launched at the decade.

    No matter how it's taken.

    The Sixth Sense is ranked in the Top 250, and to me is the best horror movie of '99,

    Absolutely adored The Ninth Gate. Some people lose it for Twixt and I just don't get what's so great about it- for late career masters-of-cinema returns to horror, The Ninth Gate is my Twixt.

    A dimension of sight, sound and mind.
    House on Haunted Hill was an easy pick for me. WB obviously doesn't think too much of the film to have never released in in the U.S. on blu-ray. I had to get it from Germany.

    The Ninth Gate starts out great and winds down to a subpar ending imo. It does have an amazing soundtrack, and Johnny Depp does a wonderful job throughout. Emmanuelle Seigner (Polanski's wife) is exceptionally beautiful and a welcome addition to any film.

    My brother gave me his copy of House of 1,000 Corpses one day back sometime in 2005-2006 after watching it once (maybe he didn't even finish it) and he said something like "if you don't take it, I'm going to smash it." I said, "no, please. I'd love to check it out."

    That exact situation could have taken place, with the roles reversed, with The Blair Witch Project. Save... for one thing: back in 1999-2000, I was anti-DVD and still holding onto VHS.
