My top 10:Psycho (1960) - The Film that started it all. Doesn't get any better than this!
Halloween (1978) is my personal Favorite. And perhaps my most Favorite Film of all time!
Just Before Dawn (1981) - One of the most underrated Horror Films there is.
Tourist Trap (1979) - This Horror Film had such an impact on me growing up. It scared the hell out of me. And still does. And it's rated PG!
Prom Night (1980) - Will forever be close to my heart. My sister and I would spend countless hours watching it back in the day. The perfect Brother/Sister bonding Movie with a slasher twist.
Black Christmas (1974) - Bob Clark's first seminal Christmas Film, and my Favorite film to ever tackle the Holiday. So good. I would say more about it, but I hear the phone ringing...
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) - Always frightens the hell out of me. Gritty and stylized in a way that makes it a work of art.
Friday The 13th (1980) - The first Friday set the tone and atmosphere. It's pure slasher goodness.
Hell Night (1981) - Classy and atmosphere. When I watch Hell Night, I fall in love. This is how it should be done.
The House On Sorority Row (1983) - Another class act. Low budget, but you'd never guess. Well done on every level. One of my Favorite Horror Movie scores of all time.
