1980
Unforgettable. If you've seen it, you'll know! Kubrick at his best!
Buy An American Werewolf In London at Amazon.com An American Werewolf In London
1982
Humor and horror wrapped up in a nasty dish of raw meat! Breaks the boundaries of horror to grab the uninitiated, and works for all...
Buy The Thing at Amazon.com The Thing
1982
One of my favorite remakes! This starts a spree of JC/Kurt Russell films...Need 3 movies? The Thing, Escape From New York, Big Touble in Little China. You're Welcome!!! Tor thinks this is a great movie to watch in the winter.
Buy Nightmare on Elm Street at Amazon.com Nightmare on Elm Street
1984
First great horror film to delve into our dreams. What did it create? Freddy Kruger! Thank you Wes Craven!
Buy Fright Night at Amazon.com Fright Night
1985
Evil Ed Stephen Geoffreys gives a great performance as does Roddy McDowall. A funny, 80s horror flick that bends the genre and has fun with it!
Buy Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn at Amazon.com Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn
1987
Ultimate of 80s horror! This is the must see intro of Bruce Campbell, man of mystery... If you see this film, you will believe!
Buy Pumpkinhead at Amazon.com Pumpkinhead
1989
Lance at his best, but furthermore we have a monster that is cruel and loathsome. What more do you want? Nostalgia pick, obviously!
Buy Jacob's Ladder at Amazon.com Jacob's Ladder
1990
Mindfuck of a film from direcor Adrian Lyne, who also did 9 1/2 Weeks and Lolita. I can't say more...
Buy Misery at Amazon.com Misery
1990
Best movie adaptation of a Stephen King novel by Rob Reiner.
Buy Army of Darkness at Amazon.com Army of Darkness
1993
(Sam Raimi) End of the road for Ash from Housewares. A must see for those who followed my must-see tag on Evil Dead 2. A must see for everyone else as well!
Buy Scream at Amazon.com Scream
1996
(Wes Craven/Kevin Williamson (The Faculty)) Most aware of the genre award goes to "Scream". Only worthy Kevin Williamson film on list. Sorry Jon Stewart, "The Faculty" was good but...
Buy Audition at Amazon.com Audition
1999
(Mikke Takashi, Japan) Ultimate in freaky! Slow, but worth evey minute for the set up. See This Film!!
Buy The Sixth Sense at Amazon.com The Sixth Sense
1999
M. Night did it well this time. Even those wise to the game should enjoy this romp. 1 of 4 Oscar nominated horror films...
Buy 28 Days Later at Amazon.com 28 Days Later
2002
(Danny Boyle Trainspotting Cillian Murphy) Danny Boyle does the Zombie genre a favor by spooking it up a bit. Removing some of the humor for fast-paced terror worked well!
Buy The Eye at Amazon.com The Eye
2002
(Pang Brothers Hong Kong Cantonese) Pang Bros film about an eye transplant spooks well!
