Beyond Gary's list which is very fine, might I add our new release of Lon
Chaney's PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (though it's more Grand Guignol, it is the
blueprint for just about everything else after it...)

And then...

The Alien series
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Tobe Hooper)
Psycho (Hitch)
Martin (George Romero)
Nightmare on Elm Street
Halloween
The Exorcist
Diabolique (the Clouzot version)
The Shining (though not a particular favorite of mine)
Rosemary's Baby
Shadow of a Doubt (Hitch's own favorite of his films)
The Ring (Japanese original version)
The Night of the Hunter (Charles Laughton)

and just a personal schlock favorite, "Q, The Winged Serpent"

Others would suggest, and I wouldn't argue,
Videodrome and Dead Ringers (Cronenberg)
Frankenstein
Eraserhead and Blue Velvet
Carrie
Day of the Dead and Dawn of the Dead (Romero)

though, my all-time nightmares were from seeing "Wizard of Oz" when I was six
or seven, so it's all subjective. Perhaps you're customers can get involved
and vote on it.
