Favorite Horror Films

I know this is a bit late, I just fancied what were your favorite horror films to watch on Halloween. Here's mine:

The Candyman (I like a lot of Clive Barker's books, but this film is pretty good)
A Nightmare On Elm Street (it's one of those films you watch when your 13 and it manages to scare the beholy's out of you. The original would be scarier if they didn't make 20 sequals whereby it was more about Freddy Krueger's wise cracks then actual half decent believable acting).
Scream (another Wes Craven directed film which sends up the horror genre. I have probably seen it too many times to enjoy it as much as I used to but it still is good film)
Ring (Japanese original)
Omen Series (If you don't believe in the devil anymore than you do in God then this is likely to be no more realistic then the possibility of watching a video tape and dying a week after seeing an image of a girl crawling out of the TV screen, but I find these films scary.)
Dawn Of The Dead & Day of The Dead (In Day Of The Dead there is a guy, who's real name is Joe Pilato, looks the spitting image of Bono. Unfortunately he comes to a sticky end but then baddies always do in these films. The smae guy also makes a brief appearance as a cop in the original Dawn, and here he looks exactly like Bono did in the mid 80's)
It (not as good as Stephen King's book but Tim Curry's appearance of the clown is just as witty as Robert Englund's as Freddie Krueger. I've always hated the creepiness of clowns)

Last summer, Edge invented this thing called the "headphone", and we believe that, if you listen to our revolutionary new album on a pair them, you can, in fact, see your future. Those were the two most productive weeks of my life.

The Shining (Kubrick, '80)
The Exorcist (Friedkin, '73)
The Thing (Carpenter, '82)
Prince of Darkness (Carpenter, '87)
Angel Heart (Parker, '87)
I Walked With a Zombie (Tourneur, '43)
Suspiria (Argento, '77)
Phantasm (Coscarelli, '79)
Interview With the Vampire (Jordan, '94)
The Exorcist III: Legion (Blatty, '90)
Bram Stoker's Dracula (Coppola, '92)
Phantasm II (Coscarelli, '88)
The Ring (Verbinski, '02)
In the Mouth of Madness (Carpenter, '94)
The Serpent & the Rainbow (Craven, '88)

Don't consider the Evil Dead trilogy horror as they're too funny, so not included here. Also think my favorite Cronenberg films (Videodrome, Scanners) are more sci-fi than horror.
