I'm a sucker for the Scream trilogy even though the last one was lacking.

Final Destination is the only horror flick that actually makes sense to have a million of.

A bit different

Sleep Away Camp series. They were the first horror films I watched, and my first exposure to T&A in the movies, and sadly, life (I was 11 at the time) so they hold a special place in my heart.

Saw does not qualify as scary. There are rarely any spots they try to make you jump. It's all about psychological horror.

It was a tie between Evil Dead and Romero's zombies, but I went with Evil Dead.

No other movies scared the shit out of me and had me laughing at the same time the way the Evil Dead movies did when I was a kid.

Geez, this one is a difficult choice for me. I love MOST of the franchises up there. Each has their own little quirks that makes them so enjoyable. But I guess the key word is "franchise" here. Whereas most of these had great first films, many of the franchises just fell apart after the original flick.

All 3 Evil Deads are great, almost all of Romero's Dead flicks are great, half the Halloweens are great/decent (with the first one probably being the best horror film ever made IMO), the 1st

Most of them are highly [link] when you're playing "guess the body count."

I'll go with

The 28days/weeks/months later or the Hannibal trilogy/quadrilogy depending on what you consider horror. Either way mostly all well made
