My personal scarefest thrillers x 10

Ive always known the fear of being scared is worst than actually being scared,thats my problem with this one.Mustve been all those horror flicks ive seen in the past.Well its Halloween time and with the horror movie genre being one of my favorite genres its time to make up my top 10 list of my all time favorite horror movies that either :        
A) scarred me for life 
B) made me sleep with lights on    
C) made me afraid to goto bed or washroom  
D) made be afraid of the dark
E) all of the above

My Top 10:
1)The Exorcist –  An obvious choice. Creepy, shocking and disturbing. A classic horror based on a true story,  it scared people then and it scares people now. The rotating head, levitating body and spider walk..just some of the most classic scenes in the horror genre

2)Amityville II  (The Possession)  –based on a true story and the best of its series. I found it to have a very creepy atmosphere..just terrifying and eerie as hell 

3)The Omen –the all time horror classic..must be something with the chanting, the music and the ruthless mean little boy.. creeeepy 

4)Stir of Echoes – a psychological horror that is scary and fascinating. A story that taps into our fear of the paranormal to give plenty of chills 

5) The Shining –   Kubricks classic materpiece of horror in a spooky hotel of evil. Jack Nicholson goes berserk with scares around every corner from the washroom scene, the twins to redrum redrum!! oh and the bloody hallways..  

6) Event Horizon – a very scary sci-fi horror with great gory special effects and disturbing to mess with your mind 

7)Texas Chainsaw Massacre – intense horror with just plain blood and gore. Keeps you nervous the whole way through.  Just the whole concept of being in the middle of nowhere and with nobody around to help you is scary enough

8) What Lies Beneath – great suspense horror. I couldn't look into the bathroom mirror for a week without feeling paranoid after watching this

9)Hellraiser II  Hellbound  - Pinhead has to be one of the creepiest villain ever! Twisted with special gore effects takes you to hell and back

10) Sleepy Hollow -  Gothy director extraordinaire Tim Burton creates the best looking horror film with an amazing set and characters. Gory and dark with great cinematography
