What are some of your favorites?
Nightmare on Elm St: Freddy was scary as hell. I honestly think this franchise is better that Friday the 13th, hack -n- slash movies were played out, this series IMO freshened the whole genre. Micheal and Jason were lumbering brutes with no personality, Freddy is far more interesting.
Silence of the Lambs: Hanibal Lecter could talk you into killing yourself, he didn't need to lift a finger.
Pyscho: How many women thought twice about showering in a motel after seeing this?
Frankenstein: No blood and guts here just lots of tension.
Elvira Mistress of the Dark: Cheesy horror/comedy that always makes me laugh.
