Have any of you seen/heard of Amityville Horror 2? Chris mentioned it on his podcast, and it's been banging around in the back of my head since as something that would be good to watch as I'm working on knitting projects. (Yes, I tend to watch DVDs when I'm working on knitting, just as something to distract from the monotony on some projects. Does work pretty well for me.)
What is the best HORROR movie?

Cry Havoc! And let loose the Dobermans of war!
Life is too short to take seriously, none of us get out of it alive.
Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be.Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.

Kats, I think I know the movie you're talking about, but the name escapes me. I think it starred Robert Alda, but I'm not sure.
One of the best movies I have ever seen is "The Uninvited" with Ray Milland. It's set in the English country side, and is the story of a brother and sister who rent a house that is supposed to be haunted by a woman who died young, after having had a daughter. The child, now an adult raised by the grandfather, begins to spend time in the house with the brother and sister and then the hauntings begin. The effects are very good - creepy, and for its time, very high-tech. If you ever see this one listed on TCM, make a point to watch it - you won't be disappointed!
Here you go, Kats, does this sound like the movie you remember?

Here is my two cents (not necessarily in this order):
1. The original "Night of the Living Dead". I was 10, in a drive-in theater at night, and used the back of the front seat as my duck and cover. Nightmares for years, but I'm a devotee to "The Walking Dead". Go figure.
2. The original "Frankenstein" and "Bride of Frankenstein". The lighting, simple effects, and overall eeriness set the mood.
3. The Kurt Russell-staring version of "The Thing". That was just frickin cool, and Kurt Russell is sooo hot...uh, according to my wife. Yeah, that's it.
I have other favorites that I could have thrown in there, but it would get lenghty, combative, and start a cussing match with myself.
I'm not a fan of modern horror or paranormal movies; they do nothing for me (many "...because..." qualifiers on my part) and have yet to be startled. I get more startled by seeing myself naked in a mirror.

No 1: Alien... because in space no one can hear you scream
No 2: dawn of the dead... because every week when I go shopping I feel like I am trapped with zombies
No 3: saw... Because it made me think "have I done something wrong? is somebody watching me? am I next?" twisted and wonderfully frightening
