I don't think of this as a "horror" film. I think of it as a comedy. Everytime I watch it, I can't help but laugh. But it is a GREAT flick and I love it.

Horror Hotel  (also known as City Of The Dead)
The rolling fog  & the shadows from the fireplace on the walls of the Raven's Inn are brilliant in Black & White.

I don't know you could consider this a horror movie (it was more of a suspense thriller), but the original "Manchurian Candidate" (1962) is one of my all-time favorites.

The movie came out in the 30s it's a classic, it was probably pretty scary for it's time, Lugosi's Dracula is the most imitated

I have totally avoided the remake and sequels to the great movie.

Have you seen the remake from 1999?  They've been airing it on TBS lately and I watched it mainly because one of my favorite actors, Owen Wilson, was in it.

Night of the Living Dead...a classic film ahead of it's time, a movie that was made by amateur film makers that set new standards for scaring the life out of you. I first saw that movie in the Union drive-in with a girl who was so scared that she crying for me to take her home home, me I was to macho to admit that it made the hair stand up on the back of my neck, it was so different from all the horror made up to that time, my imagination spooked me for some time afterwards.

Definitely Psycho. It's a wonderful classic that deserves to be in black and white forever.

"Psycho" has an interesting history behind it. Alfred Hitchcock had just come off " North By Northwest" which was an international blockbuster. The next film Hitch had in his hands was the book Psycho by Robert Bloch, and due to the subject matter no studio or distributor would not touch it. So Hitch went on to produce it himself, and to say costs on a cheap budget, he used the tekevision production crew and shot it in black and white, again to keep the cost down. The film went on to make $50m world wide.

Wasn't Schnidler's List a historical drama?

Wasn't Schnidler's List a historical drama?
Set during WW2, it is based on Schindler's Ark, a 1982 book by Thomas Keneally. The movie and the book owe their names to the list of over a thousand Jews who worked in the title character's factory , and the businessman Oskar Schindler who saves thousands of Jews from being killed in the Holocaust.
