Scream 2... was awful... just pure awful.

I'd vote for WILD ZERO. Starring the best band in the universe, Guitar Wolf.

I like all the cheesy old Hammer Horror movies. But for this season, the movie I'd pick is Ginger Snaps.

I wouldn't really call them cheesy. I think they've aged quite well, actually. Films like Curse of Frankenstein are not as lurid as they were thought to be when they first came out, but they are still quite cool to watch. I've seen maybe 20 or so Hammer productions, all of which I've highly enjoyed. They're one of my favorite film companies aside from Toho and the Shaw Brothers (which Hammer collaborated with on Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires).

Does Eraserhead count as a horror movie? I just thought it was Eva-style psychobabble almost 20 years before Eva-style psychobabble became in vogue. With a creepy baby.
As for my answer... Army of Darkness. I'm a big Bruce Campbell fan. 8)

According to IMDB, it counts as a horror film.

Well, the All Movie Giude entry calls it an avant-garde/experimental/surrealist film, and I think that genre is more accurate.

Funny answer.

I guess mine would be, The House on Haunted Hill.
That movie was pretty scary, what with all of the dead nurses and them working on a dead patient.
Pretty strange stuff that makes it scary.

I really hope you're talking about the original Vincent Price film and not that crappy remake.

I really do not know which one.
But it was the one horror movie I saw that had the black guy live at the end.

It was probably the remake because in the beginning, there was something about an amusement park and people getting invited to this house party randomly.
It looked like a remake at least.
I thought there was only 1 version.

I'll have to choose the most recent movie that scared the hell out of me...

The Grudge

I laughed during the whole thing. Then, two days later, I suddenly realized how flipping scarey that movie was. So yeah, I spent the next week seriously paranoid of everything.

Silence of the Lambs is another one of my favorites. There are others, but I cannot think of them at the moment.

Um, no. not really. When I was about 6, my parents rented it and forced me to watch it. It scared me then and it still does. I know have a complex because of E.T. Aliens scare the shit outa me. Except the ones in Star Wars for some reason....

The first time I watched The Grudge, I also found it to be scary. The problem with it though, is that it's only scary the first time through. If you try to watch it again, you know what is going to pop out, so you're basically just subjected to Sarah Michelle Gellar stumbling through her lines for an hour and a half.
