  1. “A nightmare on elm Street” is by far the scariest movie I’ve seen, especially since I have very realistic nightmares already!

  2. “it may have come out in the early 90’s”

    What is wrong with that? Do you know how many classics came out in the early 90s that still hold up today?

  3. Ah The Last House on the Left. Like The Thing, an entertaining, but below average movie that was remade years later and done better. Granted, The Last House remake is no where near the masterpiece of The Thing, but considering the original, it is a godsend.

    However, this list is still meh. I can understand having THe People Under the Stairs on it even though I don’t care for that movie, but Red Eye? Seriously? That was a snoozefest.
