Scary movies are my absolute favorite!! How to pick just 5?
In no particular order:
1. The Descent--terrifying! 2. The Omen--still one of the best 30 years later. 3. Dawn of the Dead--original and remake--can both count as one? 4. Devil's Backbone--Spanish movie, but creepy even when being read. 5. 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later--again, can these count as one?
Nosferatu is definitely one of my faves as well (I just didn't want to duplicate you)--have you seen Shadow of the Vampire?
Yes, exactly--it's John Malkovich as Murnau and Willem Dafoe as Max Schreck--who is very, very serious about his vampire role...it's quite good. I'm going to have to check out the 1920s Phantom of the Opera--never seen it!

I prrobably shouldn't respond to this becaue I've never seen any of these and don't care to. The only scary movie I ever saw at a theater was "Psycho" when I was about15 - I dunno, have to look that up. But I spent most of the movie with my hands over my eyes.
