Can't argue with #1. List seems fairly soild.

28 Days Later probably deserves the list. It's the best zombie movie made, and probably a top 10 horror flick.

I was thinking the same thing.

Why not It, The Blob, 28 Days Later or When a Stranger Calls? Scream and Blair Witch?...

I think scream and friday the 13th deserve to be higher on the list.


Exorcist is scary if your young but, overrated if your older.

The Shining only cool thing it was filmed in Estes Park. Did not see hoopla of this movie being scary at all.

The correct answer is: "The ones you watched as a child"

Nightmare on Elm Street and Pet Cemetary ****ed my world up.

25. Friday the 13th (original 1980) - always thought this was just a Halloween knockoff, never a fan. the first one was better than the rest, but still never scared me much.
24. Scream - good film, but not as scary now.
23. Dracula (1931 version) - eh, got to love Bela Lugosi in all his cheesy glory and the sets are amazing but the film is only so so. I like Nosferatu
22. The Haunting - the original is good, the remake bites
21. The Blair Witch Project - so overrated.
20. Suspira - creepy and weird and all these lists have it. not sure it's the scariest, but certainly it is weird.
19. Let the Right One in. - Really good. Am worried the Americanized version will bite.
18. An American Werewolf in London - scary and funny (sets the stage for great stuff like Shaun of the Dead)
17. Dawn of the Dead (1978 version) - I like this, but I really liked the remake too.
16. A Nightmare on Elmstreet - first one is scary and Nancy is one of the better horror heroines, smart and a fighter. The remake was ok, but fundamentally weakened Nancy which was the worst thing they could do.
15. The Thing - freakin awesome. Saw it last year first time in rerelease at the theater, still freaky even with the dated technology in it. I hear there's a remake in the works, given other remakes that sucked, I worry.
14. The Fly (1986 version) - creepy and well made, but not sure the best scary film
13. Poltergeist - definitely creepy, I remember closets being scary for a long time for some reason.
12. The Ring - eh, didn't scare me, but ghosts are not really my thing, except in 6th Sense maybe
11. Halloween (Jamie Lee Curtis version) - one of my first horror films and loved Jamie. Smart and human. Everything to follow was pretty bad tho
10. Night of the Living Dead (1968 version) okay, but not one of my scariest, but certainly set the standard.
9. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) - eh, I know everyone loves this film, but I kind of thought most of the people were stupid. But I recognize its freak out factor
8. Rosemary's Baby - creepy, really creepy. still hate Roman Polanski tho
7. Bride of Frankenstein - fabulous film
6. The Shining - Here's Johnny! Love this one too. I even had a red room in my house once nicknamed by my dad Redrum..and I put souveniers from the Estes Park Hotel the book is based on in here.
5. Silence of the Lambs - okay, love this one too, but have hated most of the ones made after this
4. Alien - amazing film, scary, creepy, gross.
3. Jaws - still scares me (the sequels are just patently bad and really funny)
2. Psycho - Love Anthony Perkins, love this film, tho for today's audiences the pace would be too slow I suspect. Hate the remake, completely pointless.
1. The Exorcist - excellent film, and also a great how to film on dealing with the problems of epilepsy.

Kind of thought a nice change of pace from the regular doom and gloom threads would be good.

okay I like most of the films on this list, though not necessarily in this order. I am a horror movie junkie for some reason. Cannot help myself. Wow, I talk a lot.

Decent list... I think the religious horror films are the scariest, because they're actually fathomable - ie Exorcist, Shining, Rosemary's Baby, etc.

Some of those however I wouldn't put on there. Especially Scream. I saw that when I was like 12 and I remmember wondering if it was a joke - like if it was supposed to be a comedy.

Actually, only the Shining Miniseries was filmed at Estes Park. Stanley Kubrick's film was made in London on soundstages and the exterior shots are a hotel in Oregon. I found this fun fact out when I went to the hotel in Estes Park. Stephen King did in fact base his novel on the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park though.

As amazing as Kubrick is, he always manages to piss off the writers of his movies. I'm pretty sure Stephen King hated the film adaption of the Shining, and Anthony Burgess said that the film adaption of A Clockwork Orange completely missed the point of his book, and even conveyed pretty much the opposite meaning of what he had initially intended.

I didnt know Jaws was a horror movie
I liked it, but never thought of it as a scary movie

Event Horizon scared the poo out of me, but then again I was like 10 when I saw that so I dont know how scary it would be now

Exorcist is a good choice, good movie and very creepy

also I thought the remake of the Shining was scarier than the original version personally

Well the Shining I think is the only one of his films I like. It is atmospherically creepy, but it does alter the book a lot, sometimes for the better and sometimes not.

I was about to say the Sixth Sense as well
even though it may not have been a horror, IMO it was creepier than a lot of those on the list above

I don't know if Angel Heart qualifies as a horror film or not, but it's about the only thing in my collection that comes close to it.
