Default Best Horror Movie

So with the spirit of the season I was wondering what every one thought was the best horror movie? In terms of how scary it is??? Or best made.


I really like Dawn of the dead "the new one" awesome looking zombies. I have always thought it would be cool to have to survive in a world full of zombies.

How can you rate something like that?

I mean there are a ton of good scarey movies, but what scares one person doesn't scare the next. Also there were land mark horror movies such as Nosferatu, Dracula, Blob, and Body Snatchers. Then you have my personal favorite classics The Omen and Exorcist.

I agree the new "dawn of the dead" is scary. It's one thing if the zombies are limping after you, but quite another if they are in an all out sprint to eat your brains.

Debbie does Dallas. Wait, you didn't want whore movies. My bad.

I agree with RedHead and I cannot pick one. I am also a huge "b" horror movie fan. If there is less than 2 copies at the video store, I will rent it.
