With Halloween fast approaching, I've decided to list what are, in my opinion, the most influential horror movies ever made.

Ironically you have left off The Last Man On Earth - a fairly faithful version of I Am Legend which George Romero said heavily influnced his zombie movies the first being Night of the Living Dead

As much as I think its a crap film wtf? no Cannibal Holocaust for the faux documentary/found footage sub genre

And NO anthology film mentioned at all - Dead of Night (1945)

finally nothing about comedy horror - American Werewolf In London

Cool list man!

Yeah, like thenoah said. I, too, would have added The Wolf Man and Amer. werewolf in London. Both were extremely influential.

It's sad about Blair Witch. I agree it was very influential...just in a bad way. ;P

@Fortunato - BWP revived the found footage fake documentary sub-genre and there have been some cool films in that area - Grave Encounters, Apollo 18, Noroi: The Curse, Occult, VHS, Poughkeepsie Tapes, The Tunnel - a lot of bad films ,but that goes without saying

Black Christmas should replace Halloween.

Halloween really kicked off Slasher films.
