I figured I'd do a spin-off of Jinx's 'must-see' movies, and narrow this list to horror movies. I'm almost ashamed to admit this, but I just saw Hellraiser last night for the first time, and it was pretty damned good - I'm now going to have to get the 2nd movie, which is also supposed to be pretty good.

Anyways, here's my initial list (I'm sure I'll add more later as I think of them)

Nightmare on Elm Street
Exorcist
Halloween
Hellraiser
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Friday the 13th
The Fog (original)
Rosemary's Baby
Night of the Living Dead
Dawn of the Dead
White Zombie (1930s classic)
The Haunting (original)
House on Haunted Hill (original)
Candyman
Army of Darkness
The Evil Dead
Phantasm
The Omen
Nosferatu
The Shining
Psycho
Poltergeist
The Thing
In the Mouth of Madness
The Hills have Eyes
The Descent
Blair Witch Project
Carrie
28 Days Later
Pet Semetary
Dracula (Francis Ford Coppola)
Children of the Corn

Event Horizon, although slow getting to the 'horror,' qualifies.

Speaking of Dawn of the Dead (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077402/), I bought it recently and finally saw it for the first time. Oh man, soooooo goooood. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

The Lost Boys is another classic, along with From Dusk Till Dawn. Yay vampires!

Also, watch the original Halloween if you still haven't seen it yet. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

You've not made it easy to list more there, Brim! Hmm...

There's this vampire movie I saw years ago that I can't remember the name of - some man's name was the title... Shane? No, that's a Western. Ah, Martin! I couldn't watch that film through to the end

Wolfen
Don't Look Now
Shivers
Prince of Darkness

I'll try and think of some others
