Night of the Living Dead (1968)
Saw (2004)
Halloween (1978)

Halloween 2 (1981)
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984)
Cannibal Holocaust (1980)
Hostel (2005)

The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
Hostel 2 (2007)
Saw 2 (2005)

Wolf Creek (2005)
Black Christmas (1974)

The rest of Romero's living dead series (I don't mean return of the living dead).

Other than that, I can't say much, I don't care for horror.

p.s. have you seen Doom? (it has First Person Shooter segment in it, which helps make up for the rest. (also has the Rock))

You watched Sleepaway Camp? Lord have mercy on your soul. That movie's ending just made me stare in disbelief for an hour.

Your list needs some Sci-fi horror. Try Alien, Event Horizon, and maybe Pandorum.

Another good horror flic is Rec. It's in Spanish, so you might want to try the American remake, Quarantine, instead. Both are worth a watch though.

Haha yes, it was pretty twisted ;P I didn't really like the movie overall though.

I generally don't like zombie horror type films, especially the infected virus ones like Rec but I might give it a shot if I have nothing else to watch.

I've already seen Alien and I don't really consider it horror...kind of a scary action movie really.

Cabin in the Woods is one of the worst films I have seen in a while surprised anyone has recommended it I thought it was stupid boring and generally a waste of time.

I don't really get scared normally by movies so I don't consider many horror films even if they are classed as one.

I can't really think of any scary ones atm other then Rec because bronze mentioned it and I think that is a pretty good zombie horror probably the most scary zombie film I've seen.

Saw (2004)

Saw series are more suspense/thriller

The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

Suspense/drama

Halloween (1978)
Halloween 2 (1981)
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

Best argument you could make for here is Nightmare, because of the whole "die in your dreams" thing..other than that...thrillers

Scream (1996)

Comedy/thriller

Doom?

Action

Cabin in the Woods is one of the worst films

I actually really liked it..but in now way would I describe it as a horror movie. More of a comedy/thriller

Have you actually seen any of these films? Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and A Nightmare on Elm Street are considered some of the best horror classics ever made. The entire ensuing franchises are also all horror films.

Scream is  a horror / comdey.

Saw could be both although I think it is more horror / crime.

Silence of the Lambs is a psychological thriller with elements of horror.

Best argument you could make for here is Nightmare, because of the whole "die in your dreams" thing..other than that...thrillers

Please explain what you consider a horror film and give some examples because your post is blasphemous haha.
