So this has been a recent discussion with my film friends and I and as the horror fan they are always curious what I have thought as the best. It took me some time to recollect and think but just tonight I came to them with my top 3 horror movies of all time.

1. Psycho
Alfred Hitchcock is the master of suspense and this is hands down thee best horror film ever.
2. Nightmare On Elm Street
The reason I put Nightmare On Elm Street on this list is for the visual graphics and directing. Released in 1984 the visual graphics for this movie were beyond any other 'for its time'. I debated on putting Poltergeist in this spot but I give the edge to Wes Craven on directing this film. And of course Johnny Depps role.
3. Dawn of the Dead
This really could have been put with any George A. Romero film but I decided on this one. I really felt like a dick if I didn't put Romero here as he is a catalyst and a huuuge part of the horror community.

Any thoughts?

Looks about right to me.

But you could maybe swap psycho with lion king, nightmare on elm street with lion king 2, and dawn of the dead with lion king 3.

Just a suggestion.

+1 I saw it in the cinema, and i was so genuinely scared that I wanted to leave. What about event horizon peoples? It's not pooh your pants scary, but there's certainly something about it...

Event Horizon is good. Not scary but pretty damn eerie and atmospheric

I'm not listing any comedy horror like Evil Dead I couldn't even consider it.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre is definitely top 5 best horror. 28 Weeks Later is a good zombie movie but doesn't touch any movie Romero has ever done.

Bitchwitch Project was THEE WORST cinematic project I have ever witnessed with my own eyes. Someone is running away with like 80 million bux in their pocket for a movie which took about 500bux to film and was God awful. If you were scared or even slightly terrified by this movie God bless your soul you are a weak individual and were raised by Santa Clause himself. Or possibly the tooth fairy.

Thanx for the feedback its appreciated.

I actually had a craving for Event Horizon the other night and watched it again. Not a bad film either.

I don`t know, Evil Dead made me be very afraid of trees...

The Shining wasn't so much horror, more like suspense for me...
I have yet to watch Psycho

The first Evil Dead, like $10 budget one, It's not scary but it is so badass you can't deny it
-The first Ring scared me as a 13 year old
-the grudge as well, **** off!

Other then that horror movies are ****ty.

Psycho? Maybe for it's time, but nowadays I'd say it's more of a comedy. Ya rly.

My top 3 are (bottom to top

3.Alien (Scary as balls)
2.The Exorcist (Never see this movie ever)
1. Audition (This is the most disturbing movie I have ever seen ever.)
Just remember, at the end of the game, the king and the pawn go in the same box
#28
No order:

1. The Shining
2. Psycho (it's only truly scary once you've already seen it and you know the twist at the end)
3.Audition


All three of these movies show how even everyday, ordinary people can be dangerous, which is what makes them all the more scarier.

Alien gets a very close honorable mention.

The Shining in first for me. None of the visuals are terribly scary, but the thing is that the way the film builds up to them, you're just about to leave the room before they even happen haha. Plus I like how it's nothing terribly hideous, it's just a guy going crazy. But the film brings more 'edge' and suspense out of that than any other horror film.

Second for me is a lesser known movie: From Beyond. An H. P. Lovecraft adaptation. Some parts make you say, 'Cool!' Others make you feel uneasy, and others make you want to turn it off haha. This film is somewhat the opposite of The Shining in that the visuals are quite intense and often just weird. This film has less of the suspense and build up of The Shining, but more of a 'gross' atmosphere. A lot of cool lines, to: "My God, Edward, what have you become?"

"Myself."

The original Amittyville Horror in third. Somewhat like The Shining in that the events themselves aren't that terrible, but the suspense and atmosphere are thick.

So that's my list. I haven't seen a terribly large number of horror films, but enough to come up with I hope a somewhat respectable list. These are the three that I found myself wanting to turn off, or pause and take a breather. That's mostly why I chose them.
We're only strays.

1. The Shining
2. Alien
3. Dawn Of The Dead - the original Romero film, not the piss poor remake.

yea me and you are in the same boat. i was never the same after the language they used was a little vulgar for my age and the whole movie was scary as balls.

About Dawn of the Dead (the original, of course), it didn't quite feel like a horror movie to me. The most 'atmospheric' scene was the SWAT raid in the beginning. Actually, the first 15 minutes of the movie. But as things settled down it acquired that fun sort of mood that it has. I think if Romero built it up further from the first scene that I mentioned, and made it scarier, it would be one of the best horror films without a doubt, ever. But instead it ended with that guy doing goofy '70s era mock karate moves. That being said, it IS a really great movie for what it is. But IMO not deserving of a top 3 spot.

I hear that one's pretty damn scary.
All Subtitled yeah?

1408 wasn't that scary. Alot of people like it, but it doesn't do much for me.

Saw 1 was a pretty good movie but ithe series went downhill after that.
28 days later was good i never saw 28 weeks though.
