1. Halloween (1978)
2. The Evil Dead (1981)
3. Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1986)
4. Suspiria (1977)
5. Housebound (2014) would be the perfect second part of a Halloween double feature. Starts slightly scary but turns out mighty funny

Honorable mention to B movie, Hardware (1990). Absolutely terrified when I first stumbled onto it on cable in the early 90s.

Stephen Atwood, I hope to watch Hardware (1990) either as a part of Halloween Marathon or Halloween Hangover Marathon (November, basically). Richard Stanley is a very interesting director, shame that his career was derailed by rumors spreading that he was trying to sabotage The Island of Dr. Moreau from which he was fired when he sneaked onset as an extra in heavy make-up to at least have some input into production he spent years planning.

I usually find myself in a Halloween Hangover, but this year I think I put my decor and stuff up too early... I think I'll be ready to say goodbye Nov. 1.  :)

A bunch of horror movies that were great for their time haven’t held up well over the years. The entire Friday the 13th series fits this category, as do many of the other seeming classics.
So, my list:
Drag me to the Hell
The Babadook.
Insidious
The Devil Inside.
The Exorcist.

Regards, onplanners

Olivia,
Unfortunately this poll suggestion has already gone live, meaning it's an official poll on IMDb.  But joe can still edit his list; he may add your picks if he wants.  :)

Olivia Fair, "holds up" is a tricky term. I find many silent films and 1930's and 1940's classics holding up well as horror movies, to be honest.
