I enjoy collecting and watching movies, but I guess you could say I'm generally a bit obscure with my selections. When I buy DVDs I tend to look for the strangest, most unusual, or otherwise uncommon releases to pick up; virtually all of my friends also collect movies, and it gives me a great sense of pride to show a film to someone that they have never even heard of, let alone picked up, and have them enjoy something they wouldn't otherwise have experienced had I, with my great vault of horrific cinema knowledge, not deemed it suitable to expose them to. Aside from showing how full of shit I generally am, this also presents a problem in that I tend to overlook normal releases for the weird or uncommon stuff most people haven't heard of or haven't picked up. Basically, I've got some decent obscurities in my collection, but am running pretty light on the basic fundamentals of horror cinema. What I need from you guys is this: Give me a list of must have horror dvds to help me round out the foundation of my collection. All the basics, the obvious stuff a pseudo-snob like me might have overlooked, all the films that without which your collection would be incomplete. Nevermind how obvious they might seem, please include them (for example, only after watching the recent Day of the Dead release and wanting to watch the whole series back to back did I realize I never picked up NotLD). If there are multiple releases of a film *ahem*Halloween*ahem* feel free to include which release you prefer. By the way, I did a few searches on essential or must-have dvds and didn't come up with quite what I was looking for, so if this topic seems WAY overdone, I apologize; I did try. Maybe a neat feature of the site would be a link featuring list of a few dozen essential dvd releases for the average consumer? Thanks all.
