1. The Shining (1980). "The tension builds at such a slow pitch that by the time he's trying to break down the bathroom door, I think that someone is about to break down my own door." CS

2. The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988). "It's about an anthropologist that goes to Haiti to investigate a drug that turns people into zombies. Creepy because it could be real. Seriously, it could happen." HH

3. The original Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974). "Low-budget, no famous actors, (relatively) minimal special effects and yet creepy as hell. The gloomy lighting inside the house can cause nightmares, and the continuous sense of extreme anxiety (hmm, maybe that's actually terror) has seldom been duplicated. Don't watch it alone." JM

4. Dead and Breakfast (2004). "Hysterically gruesome. It's a musical comedy about zombies, for god's sake." MI & SF

5. The Ring (2002). "It just freaked me out." CLB
