I might catch hell for some of these but I cant help myself. Aside from the obvious(nightmare on elm st, the friday's, hellraisers, loved them all! still do!) I'm picking some that I could never get out of my head after seeing them when I was a kid and I rewatch on dvd over and over as an adult!

1. Happy Birthday to Me

2. Bad Dreams

3. Maniac

4. The Prowler

5. Day of the Dead

6.The Stepfather

7. Killer Klowns From Outer Space

8. Silent Night, Deadly Night

9. Basket Case

10.The Thing

I didnt mention any stephen king because they are a given and would have taken up the whole list! But of course I loved Cujo, Creepshow 1+2 and all the rest! Big King fan!
