Anyone recommend any 'must see' horror films? We're going to have a bit of a horror marathon in a couple of weeks but I don't normally do scary so I don't have a clue.
I'd like at least one zombie related but otherwise - please help!
Sure. Here are the first ten that come to mind.
Black Christmas 
The Exorcist 
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 
Last House on the Left 
Night of the Living Dead 
Dawn of the Dead 
The Evil Dead 
I think they are all essential horror movies. I own all of them on DVD except for The Exorcist.
OK, because Jon mentioned the "classics" I'll name a few other films:
Hute Tension (High Tension in the US or Switchblade Romance in the UK) 
Cannibal Holocaust 
Braindead (more of a splatter movie but it's awesome) 
The Shining 
Ringu (or The Ring if you want to watch the remake) 
Of course you can still watch some "blockbusters" like The Hills Have Eyes or the Saw series...
Serial Under Achiever
Rosemary's Baby is a pretty creepy movie.
I like horror movies that disturb my eqilibrium, and the above along with The Exorcist are the two that have had the most lasting impact on me.
To be fair, I'm not a great movie lover, so can't really comment on most of the more recent examples quoted above.
Thanks boys! much appreciated.
The only one of these I've seen is the Exorcist and I fell asleep half way through it - but I was really tired

wow i have never met anyone who has actually seen zombie holocaust,
anywho, i like horror films. i like battle royal, not strictly horror but pretty harsh
zombie flesh eaters, very good again watch it for the piece of wood in the eye scene, its ouch on a whole new level
thirteen ghost is funny, tries so hard but lacks any real "fear" potentional funny and gory though
If you wanna see a REALLY terrifying film watch "Plan 9 from Outer Space"
Unspeakable Horrors From Outer Space Paralyze The Living And Resurrect The Dead!
It's up on google video.
You mean Cannibal Holocaust?
