10. Blair Witch Project (1999) - The film that capitalized the use of viral videos and shaky camera technology as well as relaunching the found footage genre. If you haven't seen it, it's a must watch, but not more than once.
8. Sleepaway Camp (1983) - Another camp time horror and an ending image that will haunt your dreams for all time. Trust me. Not pretty.
7. Evil Dead (triology) - Bruce Campbell, demonic possession, creepy trees, a hand with a will of its own, a boom stick, and witty banter. Do you need anything else?
Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode faces off against her evil brother, Michael Myers, and launches a series of sequels that propel her career for the next two decades. The haunting piano keys and Myers slow stalking stride create more fear and tension than blood and gore could ever hope to do.
5. Dracula (1931) - Don't mess with the classics. As much as I love Gary Oldman - with the fire of a thousand suns - you can't beat the master, Bela Lugosi, when it comes to portraying the iconic vampire.
|I want to suck your blood!|
3. The Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) - "One, two, Freddy's coming for you..." Who hasn't gotten chills down their spine hearing this bastardized version of a children's rhyme?
2. Saw (saga) - Every one of these films in the series is incredible - except maybe for the 3D flick, haven't seen that one. The puzzles, the twisted games, the more than what they seem victims, the endings, it's all incredible.
How about you readers? What are your favorite horror films of all time? Not a horror buff, that's okay, tell me about your Halloween plans.
