Living Hell (2000)
12345678910
  Why did you come to this parade of executions? when it comes to postmodern horror, forget The Last Horror Show; this is much better/worse, depending on perspective. the last thirty minutes are so upsetting, i'll never watch this one again.
Jacob's Ladder (1990)
12345678910
  triggered an LSD flashback. terrifying.
Dawn of the Dead (1978)
12345678910
Not Rated
  opening ten minutes still cause pain. remake is gross but not scary.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Ultimate Edition) (1974)
12345678910
  pinnacle of rural horror, more than Deliverance, Last House on the Left or The Hills Have Eyes. again: remake is gross but not scary
The Wicker Man (Extended Version) (1974)
12345678910
  the ORIGINAL - i acknowledge no sequel to this masterpiece. seen it a half-dozen times, and the penultimate shock with the five swords jacks me every time.
Ringu (1998)
12345678910
Not Rated
  best final scare, ever. what a brilliant set-piece. american remake might be adequate, see no reason to find out
The Blair Witch Project (1999)
12345678910
  second best final scare, number two with a bullet. forget the poseur nay-sayers, if you saw this with no hype it truly generated fear in the final moments
Lord of Illusions (1995)
12345678910
Not Rated
  "I was born to murder the world." - Daniel von Bargen plays the scariest villain ever, bar none.
Candyman (1992)
12345678910
  that moment where Virginia Masden wakes up in the kitchen with the dead dog and a bloody meat cleaver in her hand? BRRR!
The Eye (2002)
12345678910
  what's scarier: the calligraphy scene or the elevator scene?
In the Mouth of Madness (1994)
12345678910
  some of the best Lovecraftian horror ever comitted to screen
Seven (1995)
12345678910
  most emotionally draining ending, ever. enough grotesqueries to qualify as horror, even though technically crime thriller/suspense
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Collector's Edition) (1978)
12345678910
  scared the crap out of me as a kid
Dagon (2001)
12345678910
  face-ripping goodness, but this is just a stand-in. John Carpenter got lucky; generally speaking, nobody does Lovecraft like Stuart Gordon. Gordon's most famous flick is Re-Animator, but his scariest Lovecraft offering is *easily* From Beyond! (Greencine: please obtain.)
Alien (1979)
12345678910
  Ridley Scott proved that suspense + sci-fi = true horror ...
Event Horizon (1997)
12345678910
  ... and Paul W. S. Anderson ruthlessly capitalized on that proof.
Phantasm (1979)
12345678910
  Cheesy, humorous and dated. But no-holds-barred in terms of using every tool necessary (jump-cuts, gross-out and generally dark tone) to produce fear. probably the first U.S. film influenced by Argento's nonlinear disregard for plot evidenced in Suspiria
Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (1994)
12345678910
  "I told you I'd be back!" -- damn, that moment jacked me. That DeNiro would portray that moment, obvious; that Branagh would choose to depict that moment really surprised me. Dark and unpleasant; true fear.
Rosemary's Baby (Criterion) (Disc 1 of 2) (1968)
12345678910
  yikes.
Suspiria (1977)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Like a textbook for horror cliches, but transcends any particular one and creates a unique horror archtype. Surreal postmodern haunted house with hyper-saturated colors and shocking Goblins soundtrack.
An American Werewolf in London (1981)
12345678910
  humor combined with brutal and sadistic jump-cut shocks (Nazi zombies? few have gone there. Landis is ruthless)
The Thing (1982)
12345678910
  Carpenter is brutal, too. I find this much scarier than John's more venerated Halloween offerings.
Maniac (1980)
12345678910
  Sick. More misogynistic (or more honest in it's depiction of misogyny?) than Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, but ruthlessly frightening. Friday the 13th has nothing on this little bit of nastiness.
Dead Alive (1992)
12345678910
Not Rated
  may nothing be more over the top than this
Psycho (Special Edition) (1960)
12345678910
  childhood nightmares
The Hitcher (1986)
12345678910
  i'll never forget Jennifer Jason Leigh's final exeunt. disturbing.
Lost Highway (1997)
12345678910
  catch a glass table with the head? shudder... Lynch knows fear, all too well.
