Triangle is pretty incredible. Highly recommended. Has an ending like no other.

Also, in response to the thread...

1) Alien
2) Carpenter's The Thing
3) Suspiria
4) Silence of the Lambs
5) Nightmare on Elm Street (this one's growing on me...)
6) It Follows
7) Ginger Snaps (big thanks to Cutler for recommending this one)
8) From Dusk Till Dawn (I wasn't going to count this as strictly "horror," but resident horror aficionado Bread included it, so I guess it counts)
9) The Fly
10) The Cabin in the Woods Edit: Forgot about The Mist. I'll make that my #10.

It's always been a difficult genre for me. Hard to get my hands on the films too, because although I've always been in charge of the Netflix queue, I feel it's my duty to at least try to pick films my parents will enjoy. And they both hate horror. Last weekend's double-header of Videodrome and Phenomena almost broke my poor mother.

Even when I do see them, it's a flip of the coin a lot of the time. Never cared for Halloween or the Evil Dead movies. That Friday the 13th crap was pretty terrible. But there are some gems from the genre that I do truly love. I want to get into the Romero zombie films when I find the time. I think I'll take a few recommendations from this thread and see if I can't sneak 'em into the Netflix queue sometime soon.

Romero's Day of the Dead is the best non-comedic zombie movie ever made, imo. Dawn is great too. I need to rewatch Night though. It's been a while. Land of the Dead is okay. Skip Diary, which is awful.

I predict a Diego Tutweiller 5/10.

All right, I'm trying to put together a list of horror movies to see this October for my tri-annual horror-athon. Here's what I've got so far:

Arachnophobia
House of the Devil
Hellraiser
Dawn of the Dead
Drag Me to Hell
Let the Right One In
Fright Night (the original)
Triangle
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Carrie
The Ring
Jacob's Ladder
Re-Animator

Any others I should see? I refuse to watch torture ****, so Saw ain't going on this list anytime soon.

The Shallows and Lights Out.  Both are pretty great recent horror flicks.  The Visit too, although I'm not sure if you'll like it.
Goodbye!

People Under the Stairs.

A lot of plot elements in Don't Breathe are actually very similar to those of that film (though granted Don't Breathe is a better film).

The first Saw isn't torture porn though.

Completely forgot about John Dies at the End. That'll take Slither's position in my top ten.
