I haven't seen most of these movies, at least not all the way through...Guess I'm not much of a horror fan.  Maybe I'll rent a couple of the most recommended for Halloween?  I went to see 30 Days of Night and was most unimpressed.

Ah that's a shame! Graham Norton interviewed Josh Hartnett the other night and said that it scared the crap out of him!

 :)  I'm sorry, Susie - don't let me ruin it for you.  Josh Hartnett's performance was the high point of the whole deal for me, actually.  He does a terrific job in the role and the plot is decent.  I've been on a vampire reading binge lately, and I was disappointed that the vampires were not more three-dimensional, though.  I like complex villains.

I'm watching Stephen King's IT tonight and I had forgotten how well it starts out, very creepy, but then it sort of dies in the middle and the end is a total let down.

Tim Curry as Pennywise is worth the viewing though. His performance is deliciously evil .

So if I rent 3 for Halloween, what should be the top 3??

The Shining
Rosemary's Baby
What else??

I liked Bram Stoker's Dracula remake, but that was Keanu, so can't really count.  :D

I would think either The Changling or the 1963 production of The Haunting.

I put down Alien, The Exorcist, Nosferatu and one of my all time fave films - The Haunting (1960), which scared the bejeesus out of me the first time I saw it.

Tempted as I was to put Psycho, I'd have to go for 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' (the original, not the crappy remake) - one of the most disturbing, amoral and inventive films I've ever seen. I love it for those reasons.
