    It's hard to pick just one, but all of these where great movie experiences for me.

    Stephen King's The Shining- "Here's Johnny!"

    Poltergeist- I'll never give my kid a stuffed clown because of this movie

    The Exorcist- Still won't watch it alone in the dark

    Pet Cemetary- One of the few that gave me nightmares

    1966 Plague of the zombies- Oh hammer films you did it again

    74 Captain Kronos Vampire hunter - It is a sword fighting vampire slayer that could put blade to shame

    1985 Return of the living dead- It just freakin rocked...MORE BRAINS!!!!!

    The stories today are ok but horror got good in about 64 with spider baby ( I THINK I SHOULD HATE YOU)and ran strong through the late 80's with

    Zombies, Vampires and slashers .

    so many cult classics and great horrors I could name a hundred and would still wish I named just one more.

    I'm not sure when this one was made, but "The People Under the Stairs" is GREAT. Super cheesy... should have been billed as a comedy. Go watch it. Laugh.

    80s - Fright Night

    It was one of the first "scary" movies I ever saw, I used to watch it over and over again. I recently saw it on TV and it was so ridiculous! LOL.

    Original Halloween, as it favored honest, thrilling scares over mere gore

    The Omen .. Creepier then anything when the Nanny hung herself.

    "Black Christmas" - It was made in the late 70's and It will traumatize you for sure!

    Especially anyone alone or babysitting...BEST I've ever seen, and It's scared a lot of guys/men I know, too!!

    The Amityville Horror.

    It's so bad that it's good: horror in suburbia.
