I saw this at msn.com:

10.Halloween
Masked psycho Michael Myers gives Jamie Lee Curtis one scary night of baby-sitting in a groundbreaking flick that buries its unworthy sequels.

9.The Evil Dead
Low-budget screams: Cult hero Bruce Campbell hacks up his buddies with an ax and Sam Raimi scores first blood as director

8.Salem's Lot
From horror-meister Stephen King: The pint-sized bloodsuckers summon the biggest scares in this vampire flick that doesn't bite.

7.Carnival of Souls
The '60s "Sixth Sense"? Church organist sees dead people, in a cult classic that proves black and white is still scary.

6.Dawn of the Dead
A crowd-free shopping mall sounds like a dream, but brain-munching zombies turn it into a gruesome nightmare.

5.Rosemary's Baby
Sex with Satan? Mia Farrow unwittingly beds the beast in this chilling fable. And yes, he's scarier than Woody Allen.

4.The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
It's common sense to avoid guys named Leatherface who own chainsaws, a lesson this flick teaches with gory gusto.

3.The Shining
Is anything scarier than Jack Nicholson going out of his gourd? Oh yeah, creepy twin girls and a hallway of blood.

2.Suspiria
It's a bad time to be in ballet when fellow students are getting stabbed, hanged and tortured. Watch this with the lights out.

1.The Exorcist
Head-spinning and projectile vomiting are just the beginning in a movie that features some of the most disturbing religious perversions on film.

What do you all think of their list? I think it's pretty accurate. Haven't seen Suspiria yet but I can't wait to eventually get the DVD.
