Frankenstein never scared me.
I mean, who could forget Turistas and the lesser known gem, Turistas 2?

Thanks to Svengoolie, I had the opportunity to watch all of the black and white Mummy sequels in more or less close proximity to each other. It was amazing how "recycled" they felt. Each one changed the location and the characters, but the plot was virtually identical. Priest keeps mummy alive to protect mummy of princess. Dashing hero, goofy sidekick and beautiful girl defile tomb. Mummy kills a bunch of people. Mummy kidnaps beautiful girl who may or may not be reincarnation of mummy princess. Mummy is set on fire. The end. The only one that felt unique was the original, which had a completely different plot.
BTW Lon Chaney Jr. was perfectly cast as the Wolfman, but he was the worst Dracula ever. Who ever heard of a whiny, brooding Drac?
I'm pretty sure that Justin Bieber: Never Say Never is the scariest movie ever made...
Many people here are giving great movies, however they aren't "franchises". I dig the Evil Deads, but they are more like comedies (not the first). Alien would be my top-- Aliens being scarier (I'm a John Carpenter junkie).
As for more non-franchises by him John Carpenter's The Thing. In the Mouth of Madness is also a pretty great creepy movie.
"ThanksKilling" that is all
Rocky Horor Picture Show still frighten's me......it makes me want to protect myself with my scary leisure suit
Jeezzz and you guys call yourselves horror movie fans?? Who can possibly over look "The Exorchist"???
The clown movie IT

DUDE!!! THAT'S CLASSIC! OH THE SHEER HORROR!!!!!
Any Tyler Perry Movie! OH, the pain and suffering!!! Oh, I'm sorry... you asked about Horror.... not HORRIBLE!
Hell Raiser is the one that freaks me out the most. After watching I can't sleep and for days some of the images keep coming into my mind/thoughts. Just the thought of watching it again freaks me out. Even the mention of it's name brings the horror to mind and makes me feel uncomfortable. It's more like horror in your soul than the blood and guts kind.
Night of the Living Dead,Dawn of the Dead!!!
Poltergeist! Mary anne...!
I agree, the old Dracula movies with Bela Lugosi keep me awake for weeks.

Yes Alien and Aliens were great but then Sigourney started Co-Producing on story lines that weren't that great to start.

Definitely Evil Dead.
Casting my vote for Evil Dead as well, and Alien should have made the list, too.
Also, anyone who is into horror movies and has not seen "Cabin in the Woods" ... make sure to get your hands on it asap when its release on Bluray/DVD. It references almost every franchise mentioned in this thread (in a good way).
For consistently good films, I'll go with Alien: not a bum in the bunch. Romero's Living Dead series is classic, but the wheels came off with the horrible Diary of the Dead. The little-known Wishmaster series was fun. Check it out, horror fans.
I've seen most of these but the series I found most disturbing is Hostel, hands down. Almost all horror series involved some aspect of the supernatural that helps you to know that it couldn't really happen. given the atrocities we know have occurred in failed nation states and countries enduring civil war the idea that people are kidnapped to be used for torture or sport is completely plausible. I get nervous even thinking about traveling to one of these countries.
Hmmm, I'd say Evil Dead is my favorite but that turned more into campy horror than really trying to scare the pants off of you with the 2nd and 3rd movies. Oddly enough, the series that gave me the most sleepless nights was The Twilight Zone. The ideas those writers came up would always worm their way into my brain and scare me for weeks on end. True horror is when you don't need fake blood to make someone stay awake at night, terrified of what's in their own mind.
What about Rose Marys Baby
Killer Klowns from Outerspace !!
a heated and interesting conversation... i must add that everything is about context when it comes to the scare in scary movies.. when i was 11 alone in a friends basement watching the exorcist it scared me half to death, if i were a lonely babysitter answering knocks at the door around halloween.. or a broken down commuter on the side of the road in cornfield kansas each of the associated horror movies would make me uncomfortable to say the least. i think like another poster wrote 'jaws' entered the collective populace as holy crap scary. i was only little whenn people were afraid to go in the water.. but come on. it was everywhere. stephen king changed the way people look at clowns (with a little help from gacy, i imagine) but on that big of a scale its hard to really choose one thats why the above movies are what they are, forever classics each in thier own niche. alone at summer camp in the woods? nightmares? afraid to fall asleep? each fitting nicely into some piece of our psyche that we want to ignore until we are alone and cant help but wonder.. the real scary part is that no one knows, as completely out of left field as it may be, does it cross your mind when you stop at the roadside diner in west texas that these people could be cannibals? yes it does. my favorite is and will be the Halloween franchise. but i love them all.
Gotta be George Romero.
It occurs every fours years, but the trailers start a year out.
The Federal Election!
The Evil Dead and Alien franchises both trump any of the one one the poll.

The Ear Wig (?)....The worm that crawled through the brain, ate the brain and killed the victims in an agonizing death. The bad guy (chained to a tree) got one and actually survived when the worm made it to the other ear BUT it was a female and laid eggs in his head. Is that the one you're referring to?
If not, well yeah, Twilight Zone was scary. Nothing to do with vampires either.
I have to go with the Exorcist. Still scares the BeeGees out of me.

that's "child's play" and it's on the original list.
Are you including Prometheus among the "stupid"? (I haven't seen it)
