I think The Blair Witch Project was scarier than all of them.

 

Psychological terror is oh so more effective than graphic-anything.

I agree. I have all of Alfred Hitchcock's movies, and any movies I can find written by Edgar Allan Poe.

The fear of the unknown is *always* scarier than whatever CGI can be concocted on a blue screen, or makeup artists can do on a movie set.

The OP was 25 years, but if you want to mention other movies outside that time frame please feel free. You may turn us on to something we overlooked. For instance, I'm still nuts about Willard (1971) and Gremlins (1984). And neither movie was really "horror". And I'm a Chucky fan.  :)

Wasn't familiar with that one. I see there's also a Pumpkinhead II. May check them out.

I liked The Babadook. It's on Netflix.

 

More pshycological horror.

 

The Thing,1982 version.

See that's what I'm talking about. The online reviews were interesting enough for me to want to see Babadook sooner rather than later.

 

I have both the 1982 and the 2011 versions of The Thing. Classic Sci-Fi!

Only saw 2 on that list I think, Dracula which I admit was OK & Zombieland that was just fair. One Ex used to want to watch that stuff all the time and I'd sit on the other side of the couch thinking "What is this S***!" and "What's with all the Flies?" and was bored out of my skull. "Jeepers Creepers" how'd you get me to sit here and watch this stuff? Liked Mel Brooks' "Dead and Loving it!" though. Current gal is a big Walking Dead fan. I put up with that too resisting the urge to grab her and shake her yelling "They're Dead! They ain't getting back Up!". Gals seem to like that stuff though, don't know why. I've been to plenty of Funerals and haven't seen anyone get back up yet. When I was a Kid, Christopher Lee was the Best Dracula but I was a Kid then, I grew up. Blood & Gore doesn't bother me, I have probably Every war movie ever made so that's not it. Got a kick out of the 'Scary Movie" franchise. I just can't buy it all.

Half of the movies on the list aren't even horror, they are comedies.

I can dig that.

 

BTW, I just saw a new "horrmedy" - Don't Breathe (2016). It's a unique "edge of your seat" thriller.

Don't Breathe was very good.

 

House of the Devil is great -- my favorite horror from the last ten years or so.
