What a waste of good horror movie titles! This is a list of comedies, uplifting movies or plain dramas with rather ominous titles... if you don't pay much attention to the poster, and use your imagination, they would make interesting horror movies.

In your opinion, which of these classic titles carries the most promising 'horror' potential?

What a classic ElM idea :) I love it man! I really like "It Happened One Night"- it's not too overt in what it suggests and leaves a lot open to interpretation (versus "Swimming With Sharks" or "There Will Be Blood" which aren't as ambiguous, per se...)

Yikes, "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" is really creepy and even sounds grisly in this context.

Sorry, it went so quick I didn't have time to add them. I wish "While You Were Sleeping" was there from the start, it would have probably made the Top 5 :(

What a great poll and list! I never realized it before, but "Good night and good luck" does sound really scary in this context so that'd get my vote. I love this idea, Elmo!
