What Is Your Favorite Horror Movie

I have been a fan of horror movies since I was a kid. Back in the day, it was the Friday night double features that sucked me in. The old black and white movies with Frankenstein, Dracula, the Mummy, and the Wolfman were what I loved. The Creature From The Black Lagoon was one of my favorites back then, which may be why I love the modern movies that have some weird looking creature (The Descent, Mimic, etc.) terrorizing the citizens. Horror movies tend to fall into the love them or hate them category for most people. so I am interested to hear about what spooks you guys. Which of the following is your favorite?

I have to say Ringu 2 (the Japanese version of the ring 2) it's the only horror film that has managed to actually scare me.

I saw the original Ringu, but haven't seen the second. may need to track that down.

It's not a horror film but the passion of the Christ portrayal of the devil was scary. Don't laugh but, I seriously had nightmares after watching that. .

The Haunting (1963) with Claire Bloom and Julie Harris. I slept with my lights on for several nights after watching this :D

Out of the ones you listed, I chose The Shining mainly because even the scenes for the movie before it came out scared the heck out of me. I have seen others on the list, but I find them more in the gory category.

None of the above. If insurance commercials make fun of the plots of horror films then their plots are too predictable. If you want to have the holy BLEEP scared out of you -- without a drop of blood -- watch "The Birds."

I don't really like horror movies though I have seen a few mentioned above, I am more into the good old rom-com

I absolutely loved Dog Soldiers. Not strictly speaking a horror film, more of a dark comedy/horror. It was Neil Marshall's first film (also directed The Descent).

I also loved The Abominable Dr. Phibes.

Dog Soldiers is very high on my list of favorites. British horror always tends to be very good.

I am not too too big into horror movies, but I did get sold on People Under the Stairs a few months ago on Netflix.
