    For starters, you might want to try:

    The Haunting of Hill House (1963)
    Legend of Hell House (1973)

    Not even scary, but very theme appropriate:

    Young Frankenstein
    The Rocky Horror Picture Show
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I'm surprised Pres.WBW didn't deny your financial aid, that is if you admitted you croaked the cricket.

    Here's a few, although they are not traditional Halloween movies.....

    Carrie - IMO, the best Stephen King book made into a movie. Just like my old high school.

    The Birds - The ultimate end of the world story. Bawwwwwwkkkkkkk.......

    13 Days In October - Wait a minute.....this was real. Living through the Cuban Missile Crisis, in October, 1962, scared the s#&^ out of me. All the people were praying, going to confession for what they thought was their last time, etc. A real scary October memory.

    Riiiiight. Like we're to believe the virginal member of cyburbia did bong hits.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned Motel Hell. Its hysterically bad and playing on cable.

    Siskel & Ebert thought it was one of the WORST movies ever made!
    Some horror flicks I want to see after watching Bravo's "100 Scariest Movie Scenes" this weekend:
    The Haunting of Hill House
    Jacob's Ladder
    Freaks
    The House of 1000 Corpses
    Hellraiser (Which one?)
    Adrift in a sea of beige

    Caution, Jacob's Ladder is just plain messed up(weird for teh sake of being weird, pay close attention to names and events) and scary in a demented sort of way.

    I agree, Jacob's Ladder is messed up....but not as messed up as
    Dead Ringers....what a great show....I revise my list to include this in my top 10....

    The original Thing was fun
    I just saw the directors cut of Alien last night......I stick with that movie in the top 10 and its high on the list......

    I'd second that. My husband and I still can't agree exactly on what happens. However confusing it may be, though, it's still one of the scariest movies I've seen.
    The first Hellraiser is good. Very creepy, good special effects.
    It still amazes me that Poltergeist got a PG rating. My husband, niece, and I were watching it one evening (with all the lights out, of course), during a thunderstorm. During the section of the movie with the storm, it was thundering in sync--and we didn't have surround sound then so it was pretty easy to tell that the thunder was coming from both the tv speakers and outside. True story--very creepy. My husband also swears the light in our bedroom flashed on and off--yellow lightbulb light, not lightening.
    But--the scariest all-time, must-see for Halloween movie, is the revised Exorcist. Eesh.
    I don't dream. I plan.

    I can attest to the fact that he thought Badger Badger Badger was humorous (and for the right reasons). Therefore, I conclude he must have had at least a brief dalliance with the Sweet Leaf.

    I usually make it a point to watch David Lynch's 'Eraserhead' right before Halloween (didn't this year, though ). Has anyone else seen the movie 'Pi'? It's about this math geek's brush with Jewish mysticism and insanity. I give it high marks in the thinking person's scary/cool movie category.

    Oh yeah, and how come noone has mentioned 'Poltergeist'?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    The scariest thing in that movie is the sleaze land developer. I find suburbia itself scary, so setting a horror film in suburbia kinda loses it's edge.

    I'll secong dead ringers. Another freaky film for the sake of being freaky. The examination tools they dreamt up looked painful.
