The Fly was on telly last night, it's dated a bit (crappy 'computer' graphics) but it's still a crackin film. Blew me away when I first seen it.

Anyway my top ten (if I can think of that many) is, in no particular order:

The Thing
Hellraiser
The Fly
Exorcist III
Halloween
The Burning
Return of the Living Dead
Night of the Living Dead
Dawn of the Dead
Day of the Dead
(those last three should really count as one)
Alien
The Haunting

Loads more, but you get the idea.

"Nah, there really isn't such a thing as "too much EC horror", at least not af far as I'm concerned, so I really liked Creepshow."

BTW - have you seen the gorgeous Cochran collections of the EC library? They've produced three 5-volume sets reprinting all of the Tales From The Crypt/Haunt of Fear/Vault of Horror issues, with colour inserts for each cover. Absolutely magnificent.

IIRC, there are similar volumes reprinting Saddle Justice, Gunfighter, Modern Romance, Crime Patrol, Frontline Combat etc...

They're about ?100 each, but well worth it if you're into EC.

Anyone seen Blood on Satan's Claw?

God thats a bad film.

Also The Baby about a grown man who is kept in a infant like state by his mother.

Very poor.

The Others is brilliant, scared the shit out of me.

What about Two Evil Eyes, the Argento/Romero movie?
The Romero story was great.

Please somebody agree with me....

If there's a communal list going, whack Martin on there - a fantastic little Romero flick.

Here's my tuppence worth:

1. The Thing
2. Dead of Night (1945)
3. Dawn of The Dead
4. Halloween
5. The Fog
6. Bad Taste
7. 28 Days Later
8. Ringu
9. They Live
10. Scream

But I'll watch most horror films to be honest, Hammer and Amicus stuff is great, crazed filth like Zombie 90- Extreme Pestilence ( which features a zombified Jimi Hendrix) right through to utter shit like Jeepers Creepers and Thirteen Ghosts.

If only the Simpsons pisstake The Bloodening really existed...

Dead of Night
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark
Blair Witch Project
Psycho
Halloween
Salem's Lot
Evil Dead
The Wicker Man
Night of the Living Dead (original)
The Haunting


Worth mentioning...

The Omen
The Shining
The Haunting of Hill House
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Frankenstein (karloff)
The Exorcist
Poltergeist
Carrie
Alien
Nosferatu (original)
Ghost Story
Jacob's Ladder
The Others
A Chinese Ghost Story
Battle Royale
Ringu (remake. although there's too many flashy FX)
Scream

Plus a load of campy stuff like Theatre of Blood, and Amicus anthologies from the 70s.

Oh, and Jeepers Creepers was definately crap after the first superb 20 minutes or so.

True, the first 20 minutes of Jeepers Creepers were rather good, its the spectacular way the film pisses on its chips after that that makes me dislike it so much. Roadkill was a far better horror film without all the supernatural mollocks.

Oh, I also forgot to mention Freaks, a real horror film and no mistake.
"one of us,one of us"... creepy.
