    Didn't vote on this but looking forward to see the rundown!! Gremlins is great (but it's a comedy as far as I'm concerned) and Halloween H20 isn't too bad (after all those awful sequels)

    Cape Fear is good too

    I can imagine The Exorcist will chart high unfortunately :-?

    I hope Halloween and Scream are high up here
    RIP The Queen Of Disco

    Actually waiting until now is probably good timing, with Halloween being little more than a month away. Bring it on! I don't have my list anymore, but I think I might've given H20 a couple filler points.

    Would be perfect to reveal the #1 on Halloween

    The Puppet Master - OK
    Cannibal Ferox - saw it, not particularly great - all the cannibal films are a bit sick and lacking artistic merit - all have real animal deaths in them which has seen them censored in UK.

    Halloween H20 - average.
    High Tension - known as Switchblade Romance in UK - quite good.

    The Last House On The Left - (the Wes Craven 70's original?)
    Cape Fear (which one? the 90's one with DeNiro?)

    Suspiria - classic.

    Gremlins (my #17 - obviously a comedy but so are Critters and Leprechaun and the like - the genre is horror/comedy.)

    Leatherface : The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3 - OK but all the spin-offs pale in comparison to original.

    I've only seen Scream 3 of those five, which I thought was a mediocre sequel. I've actually had Gothika for ages though, but still haven't got around to watching it.

    It's appropriate that this countdown has come back from the dead.

    Gothika was a great film, my #14.

    I didn't vote Scream 3 as I thought it was one of the weakest from the franchise.

    I like Gremlins but didn't class it as a horror, even though it scared the crap out of me as a young lad.

    ^ Yeah 'Gremlins' is undoubtedly more of a comedy, same as 'Critters' and 'Munchies'.

    Scream 3 was great. A lot of people hated it, but I think after Scream 4 they can look back at how great it was next to it. Parker Posey pretty much makes the movie, and of course the cameos (Jay and Silent Bob as tourists, Carrie Fisher as the failed actress who was passed up for Princess Leia because she didn't sleep with George Lucas, etc..)

    Frailty was excellent, a great psychological thriller. Bill Paxton was wonderful as the psychotic dad whose mission is to kill "demons".

    Ginger Snaps is a fantastic werewolf/ coming-of-age film. Such a cult hit on video it spawned a prequel (OK) and a sequel (crap).

    14 Ginger Snaps

    I hope others voted it. I assume 7 points is not enough to qualify?

    Scream was a bit yawn after the first one. Frailty is good. Gothika isn't.

    OK I am a big horror fan (although most horror tend to bore me to tears nowadays) so I am gonna be commenting on this. First the films which didn't make it:

    Puppet Master: '80s (I believe) gem, saw it when I was a child, don't really remember it which means it probably didn't scare me. But I do remember I had a classmate raving about it

    Cannibal Ferox: I am the one who voted for it, even though I don't necesserily consider it a horror film. I had seen most of the well-known cannibal films as a child but I went through a 70s film-phase recently so I saw them again. I think as a film this is better (or at least as good as) its more well-known cousin "Cannibal Holocaust" but it had the misfortune to have been released second and, let's face it, it was almost identical. Still a great film though. It was my #15

    Cape Fear: Another good one but I don't consider it horror either. I didn't even consider it for this list personally

    Suspiria: I saw it twice, the second time in an effort to understand what the big deal about this one was. I didn't understand. I just don't like it and it definitely wasn't scary, even for a 70s flick

    Wind Chill Yeah, I wasn't expecting this one to chart but I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did either. Which is why it was my #16. Emily Blunt is just great

    Gremlins: Come on now, who voted for this one? I mean really?

    Last House On The Left: yeah it's a historic film as it was kind of the beginning of the slasher genre of films, but I am not a massive fan of the genre (at least not without some extra perversity or twist in it). For me it was OK but nothing more

    Haven't seen the others

    From the first five I have only seen Gothica and Frailty and I liked both. In fact, I think I must have either forgotten to vote for Frailty or having it as my #21 or something. Halle Berry was great in Gothica too. Not groundbreaking films in any way, but nice fun horror movies all the same

    btw: I considered watching "Inside" more than once, but something about the story screams violence for the sake of violence, so I never did. Am I missing something?

    and yeah all the "Scream" movies should be renamed "Yawn" instead

    I've seen:

    Halloween H20 (IMO the best Halloween sequel)
    Gremlins (LOVE It! One of my fave films of all time, its like a horror film for kids :-))
    Leatherface : The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3 (IMO the best TCM sequel)
    Scream 3 (I found this hilarious, I have yet to see the 4th one)
    Gothika (Seen this once when it was first released so can't really remember it)

    I hope Paranormal Activity, Blair Witch, TCM the original, Poltergeist and American Werewolf all make the Top 10!

    I never thought of Se7en as a horror, but it's an ACE film - never tire of it.

    Human Centipede is just eugh. Watched it the other week and can still hear the muffled screams to this day

    --edit--

    I'm not seeing the images Shane for some reason....

    Seven is brilliant - i'm not sure if i'd call it horror, either - it's a detective thriller with grisly elements.

    The only good Child's Play was the first (i've a feeling i'll be saying this a lot in here!).

    Centipede is OK but not up to the hype.

    Se7en - a classic, though I agree its more of a thriller.

    Human Centipede - it was ok, but not really worth all the controversy. The idea sounds much worse than what's actually shown in the movie, which isn't all that graphic.

    Eden Lake - this movie stayed with me after seeing it. I think because its exactly the sort of thing you can imagine hearing about in the news, and taps into society's paranoia over chavvy thugs and their parents.

    Amityville Horror - the remake didn't really add anything.

    Urban Legend - typical cliched teen slasher movie.

    I voted for Se7en because it is brilliant, but in hindsight, I agree that it's not really a horror.

    I enjoyed Urban Legend at the time too... I do love the slasher type movies, even if they are very predictable and cheesy at times.

    I'm not sure I would class Irreversible as a horror movie either. It was the most disturbing movie I have ever seen, to the extent that I literally couldn't bear to watch it at times... but that was due to the rape and brutal violence rather than it being scary.

    I recently saw the 2010 remake of "I Spit On Your Grave" and felt the same way, it was really disturbing viewing and didn't really have a story line, just graphic to shock and that was it.
