I woke up beside her once. Really bad breath.
I can't find much to argue with here with a few exceptions. To me Scream was a comedy and The Blair Witch Project was over-hyped, barely watchable, and not even remotely scary.
I'm in total agreement with top choice #1. When it was re-released a few years back I had my oh-so-jaded kids watch it and they were scared shitless. A good horror film can only give the THE BIG SCARE the first time you see it, but #1 on this list still has the power to give you the creeps every time.
