Rob Zombie's The Devil's Rejects, Lords of Salem, and his Halloween flicks (if you feel so bold) are worth checking out as well.

Also, Tobe Hooper's Lifeforce & Texas Chainsaw II, featuring Dennis Hooper wield two mini chainsaws, are gems.

Re-Animator, From Beyond, and Dolls from Stuart Gordon make up a wonderfully varied and under-discussed thematic horror trilogy.

Also seconding the love for Polanski's The Tenant. What a fucked-up film.

I don't know about the cinematic virtues but if you're talking about a horror classic, I don't know how the original Texas Chainsaw can't at least get an honorable mention.

No, it's amazing. Leatherface's sun-soaked chainsaw ballet at the end is equal parts heartbreaking, terrifying, and gorgeous.

You'd be surprised at how little gore is in it - pretty much non-existant. And it's markedly different than Hooper's more classically-constructed, amped-up throwback features that he did in the '80s like The Funhouse, Poltergeist, or Lifeforce. Seriously, everyone needs to see Lifeforce.

I'm all for gory horror movies, I just travel to and through Texas too often...

Driving from Austin to El Paso I was horrified of the car breaking down... more due to No Country than TCM, though they're both equally as outlandish.

I've never even seen TCM and every drive to my uncle's house at night had me white-knuckeled on the steering wheel. Part of this is because my dad and my uncle locked me in the horror portion of the house if wax in Grand Prarie when I was a kid, right next to the leatherface set-up.

Sorry I wrote that on my phone: *House of wax.

Funny enough, I'm cool with that movie...well, the remake anyways, I've never seen the original...probably should throw that on the Septober Horror Movie List I'm making.

I forced myself to go through the wax museum a couple of times while I was in college, because it was silly to be afraid of wax dummies, but that memory is still shudder-worthy.

I've only seen the Vincent Price one and it's a gimmicky 3D treat, as well as a simple and affecting take on the Phantom of the Opera story.

Then I am definitely in. You can never have too much Vincent Price in your life.

Probably the last movie (in that vein) I saw that legitimately disturbed me.
Of course, I was like 20 at the time, and completely fucking high as a kite.

And yeah, there is actually only a little gore in it. More suspenseful than anything. Especially at the dinner table. Holy balls.

The remake with Jessica Biel was poo. Although she looked about as hot as a woman can look in that movie. So there's that.

I may have to make the leap and watch it this year. But I'm afraid. Hold my hand, Interference
