A few of these I need to check out apparently. Nice to see some love for The Wicker Man and Phantasm. Amityville Horror would be higher on my list, while The Exorcist (which did nothing but make me laugh when I saw it) wouldn't be on it at all.

Confused by the absence of Carrie & Dawn of the Dead.

Recommendations: Theater of Blood (head to Netflix instant watch) and Four Flies on Grey Velvet (which Netflix has on DVD, surprisingly)

Never did see Carrie, and perhaps even more unforgivable, never saw Dawn of the Dead either.

Heh, can we still be friends?

oOo, never heard of Theater of Blood, and been wondering for a while now if Four Flies is worth a look. Thanks for the recommendations!! And I promise I'll try to rectify my classic horror negligence sometime soon ;)

That explains it then. Go watch them! I think Carrie is on instant...I know it was in October anyway.

Fantastic list, my friend! I haven't seen The Wicker Man, The Brood or The Sentinel yet, though, but I agree with the rest of your picks.

`Blood on Satan`s Claw`, `Asylum` `Let`s Scare Jessica to Death`, `From Beyond the Grave`, `Let Sleeping Corpses Lie`, `Don`t Torture a Duckling`, `Deathdream` and `The Other` are all worth a look as well, from the same decade (if you haven`t already seen them)
