The most extraordinary film of its kind, Jacob's Ladder inspired the Silent Hill series of survival horror games. Watch this masterpiece, but don't blame me if you never sleep well again.

The Ring is one of those films that has a "gotcha" near the end that's very powerful the first time you watch it. However, unlike most films that use that trick, the unrelenting horror atmosphere and great sets / locations / cinematography make this film worth coming back to see multiple times. It's also a rare gem in that it's an American remake that actually lives up to the original.

Criminally underrated, this cult film is the best at what it does... horror in space. I'll admit that it could have a stronger ending, but it's a modern horror classic in my book.

The suspense and horror hold up wonderfully to this day and on top of that, the narrative has much more depth than it's generally given credit for. There's a reason this movie is an immortal classic and it's not just because people are terrified of sharks.

Beautifully filmed and very well written, Seven continues to ramp up the horror and brutality until its stunning conclusion. I wish Brad Pitt hadn't forgotten how to act in the climactic scene, but despite that flaw this film is greatness.

This film is a fantastic mix of period piece, action epic, and horror / suspense. It is dark and macabre, yet strikingly beautiful throughout. Frankly, there's no other film like it.

Trapped on a foreign planet, cast into perpetual darkness and surrounded by vicious alien beasts. Hard to argue with that! Also, Vin Diesel makes a great anti-hero.
