I went with the The Haunting. But it's virtually impossible to choose, virtually impossible. I went with The Haunting though. Why? Because out of all those great movies, it's one that still have the ability to SCARE me. Rather than my watching it thinking - good movie - it gave me frights. It's so damn good.
Cape Fear is a thriller, not a horror film. Oops, forget I said that

Wow! Another blow-me-away decade. So hard to choose. Both of the Hitchcock films are stellar. I adore "Carnival of Souls" and "Night of the Living Dead". But my vote goes to my favorite Polanski film "Rosemary's Baby". It's just amazing. "Repulsion" is very cool, too.

Rosemary's Baby is my pick. Roman Polanski's masterpiece of paranoia and haunting brilliance. Works like a charm every time.
Targets would be my next choice. A magnificent film with a subject that resides very much in the real world, and I consider Karloff's heartbreaking performance to be his greatest. Then third would go to Carnival of Souls. An eerie and surreal classic, totally nightmarish. Onibaba and The Innocents round out the top five.

I went with Night of the Living Dead even though it makes me a little embarassed as it's too obvious.
After analyzing these polls the one thing I find is that titles from the beginning of decades hardly sit well with those at the end. For whatever reason, it seems to me that there's always a shift in style mid-decade. IMO, they're better grouped like this (rough approximations): 1955-'65 (golden age of gothic horror); '65-'75 (intro of realism in horror); '75-'85 (golden age of the slasher and gore); '85-'95 (the dark age of horror); '95-'05 (post-Scream horror renaissance)

Has to be NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD for me....my favorite horror film of all time.
But seeing the films listed makes me realize that this was also an excellent decade.
