    Texas Chainsaw
    Evil Dead
    NOTLD
    Friday the 13th (1-7)
    A Nightmare on Elm St
     
  3. In no particular order...

    The Exorcist III
    A Nightmare on Elm Street III
    Day of the Dead
    Opera
    Audition

    Return of the Living Dead, Evil Dead, , Suspiria, Black Sunday, and a few others could probably be switched with any of the above, depending on the day. And probably Zombie (or Zombi 2, as I'll be calling it from now on) in a few minutes, since I'm about to spin my nifty new Shriek Show release.

    Currently my list is this...

    Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn (the best of the series and my favorite movie of all time)
    Dawn of the Dead (1978)
    The Evil Dead
    Day of the Dead
    The Evil Dead
    AOD

    This list will definately change, especially since there are so many horror films I haven't seen. But, Evil Dead II and Dawn of the Dead will probably always remain on the list.

    Hmm, surprised I missed this the first time around...

    Mine are:
    Dawn of the Dead (original)
    The Thing
    Evil Dead II
    Re-animator
    Return of the Living Dead

    It's interesting that these are all movies I first saw as a teenager, and were what inspired my interest in all horror movies. A lot of more recent movies are current favorites, but I'm not sure any will overtake these five (maybe in 20 years?).

    Friday the 13th - 1980
    Halloween - 1978
    Suspiria - 1977
    The Fog - 1980
    Black Christmas - 1974

    Funny how I have to put the date of each film to differentiate from their remakes (or, "re-imagining" if you wanna use that bullsh*t term) ;)

    Fun thread, it'd be interesting to resurrect it in another 5 years and take a look at any changes.

    1) Frankenstein (1931) / Bride of Frankenstein (1935) [Yeah, I'm cheating]
    2) Videodrome
    3) The Thing (1982)
    4) Spider Baby, or The Maddest Story Ever Told
    5) Dellamorte Dellamore ( Cemetery Man )

    6) The Evil Dead / Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn
    7) The Fly (1986)
    8) Martin
    9) The Abominable Dr. Phibes / Dr. Phibes Rises Again!
    10) Dark Angel: The Ascent

    The Universal Horrors are poorly represented by this list, as I watch them more often than anything else, but I guess they're more a favorite as a whole than a single film. So Frankenstein, being my absolute favorite, gets top choice.
