It's a good list.


I noticed there were no sequals on the list, which is plenty fair, but for my money Halloween IV scared me more than some on mentioned.


Also, anyone want to give any love at all to Salem's Lot? Not the recent TBS remake, but the original. I thought it was really good.

I like the list, especially your number one pick. You have flicks from all generations.


Perhaps I am showing my age, however as a kid I loved the original Frankenstein, Wolfman, The Mummy, and the original version of House on Haunted Hill. I would put those in place of a few of them.

The orignial Texas Chainsaw Massacre was one of the worst movies ever made. Not even close to top 200 much less 5th.


I agree with 2c that The Howling should have made it.


I agree with Dragon that Childern of the Corn should have been there. I would put it top 10.


I thought Scream was pretty scary the first time I saw it.


Evil Dead 2 was more funny then scray.


And with Go Cats that Rob Zombie's remake of Halloween should be there. I really liked the remake and actually thought it was a better story then the original.
