this is a really hard one to answer

however the ones that i remember taping surreptitiously off the telly when i was younger (and had managed to work out how to operate the advance record function on the video recorder) and making the biggest impression on me were as follows:

frankenstein created woman (1967)
the fly (1986)
society (1989) (anyone else remember the moviedrome double bill of the fly / society on bbc 2?)
halloween (1978)
the silence of the lambs (1991)
horror express (1972)

Not really into horror, I like "serious" Romero-type zombie movies, of which I'd probably choose Night of the Living Dead as a favourite.

I like more subtle, supernatural horror like The Ring and Dark Water too, couldn't choose a favourite.

I seem to be the only person here who liked The Mist.

I think 28 Weeks Later is a very under rated film, it's incredibly powerful and bleak.

I really enjoy Copolla's Dracula, very dated, camp and ridiculous but good fun and I loved it as a teen.

A Nightmare On Elm Street (1 & 2)
An American Werewolf In London
Re-Animator
Hellraiser (1 & 2)
Halloween (1 & 2)
Aliens
The Fly (1986)
The Omen (1 & 2)
Critters
'Salem's Lot (I know it was a TV miniseries but by christ parts of it terrified me as a kid, so I'm including it)
Jacob's Ladder

There might be a few that don't really qualify as horror, and I know there are loads I've forgotten about but I loved all of those when I was younger. Some I wouldn't watch these days, obviously but they were the dog's bollocks when I was but a lad.

Re-Animator is a real gem. It doesn't get enough props imo.

The Fly, Halloween and The Exorcist are all favourites too, but The Omen is the best. I love that film so much!

Did you see the Mark Gattis BBC thing, Bumfinger? The bit on The Omen was very cool I thought.

Three hour long episodes and I thoroughly enjoyed them. Very much an old slant on horror. Up to the 80's principally.

Cemetery Man strikes me more of a macabre comedy
