The 70s had the second best Horror movies. The 80s had the best ones.
I'm gonna say CARRIE and THE SHINING...but I'm not really sure if they were 70s or 80s.

Carrie with Sissy Spacek and John Travolta came out in 1976.

The Shining is from 1980.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. THE SHINING has a very 70s feel for me (brings back memories of riding a BigWheels in my childhood) but its an 80s flick....just barely.

I remember a scary TV movie with Sally Field...think it was called "Home For the Holidays" and someone was chasing her with a pitchfork.

Also very scary on TV was "Trilogy of Terror"...anyone remember that crazy troll?

I'd like to throw Jaws into the mix. I remember going to a night-time pool party where they projected the movie on the side of a building... [Cool]

The Exorcist is also a classic. The puke scene has been spoofed more times in more ways than any horror scene save the Shower Scene from Psycho

Even The '70s HORROR MOVIES are better than '90s Horror movies!

"TORSO"!

GAV - you're definitely on the same page as me! you like HAMMER HORROR? or the movie that I thought was one of those - "BLOOD ON SATAN'S CLAW" that was a creepy movie!

Yeah cool stuff!

Hammer horror was the biz!

What about "SUSPERIA","PROFONDO ROSSO"?Italian giallo movies were the testicles!

Dario Argento had some of the sickest stuff, SUSPIRIA being my favorite.

What is TORSO? I missed that one.

"CORPI PRESENTANO TRACCE DI VIOLENZA CARNALE, I" - (Bodies Wear Traces of Carnal Violence) a.k.a. TORSO - an Italian Horror movie directed by Sergio Martino. a Giallo / Slasher flick about a masked man killing college girls. LOVE that swamp sequence!

Never seen "Torso" either.Have to track it down.

Yes Mamamia!"Susperia"is a gem and the score by "Goblin" creates the tension.It's just a great wall of noise.Excellent score!

"The Crazies"was fun from "George Romero"and "Dark Star".

SUSPIRIA probably wouldnt even be that scary if not for the GOBLIN music...it makes the hairs on my arm stand up on end.
Okay. Will have to check out TORSO next.

I have Suspiria, a friend told me it was really good, and clips of it were in Terror in the Aisles. But, I could not get through 15 minutes of it, I couldn't understand what it was about, and I think something jumped through a window and either ripped someone's heart out, or stabbed them right in the heart...and I couldn't look, it was gross. I had to shut it off.

Argento is great!The documentary(DA's world of horror) on him a few years back was awesome,very interesting.You can see it on the"Sleepless"dvd extras or "Two evil eyes"dvd.

S.O.S-You're absolutely right in mentioning "Amityville Horror".That's a real classic!I'm going to cinema to see the remake,tommorrow.We'll see what it's like.What do you guys think of all these classic horror remakes that are being made?One after another they seem to happen.I liked "Dawn of the dead"remake recently.Have'nt seen "Texas chainsaw"yet,but i'm told it's bad,being from the director of the Will Smith flick "Bad Boys"!

The first 10 minutes of SUSPIRIA are friggin bone-chilling. I was alone in my house as a teen watching it and had to turn it off. The next day (when Mommy was home!) i watched it again. If you can get past the first ten minutes you should be okay.
Yes...I just ordered TORSO. Will have to come back and discuss that one after I watch it.
I think I'm gonna watch TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE today (in broad daylight!) cuz that is the one movie that really makes me wanna lock myself in a closet and cry.
