Was thinking about starting one and I wondered how one would get input about what movies to pick.

Here's some I'd pick:

the exorcist
the evil dead
friday the 13th
a nightmare on elm st.
the thing (carpenter)
the blair witch project
paranormal activity
the shining
texas chainsaw massacre
return of the living dead
the silence of the lambs
the howling
an american werewolf in london
the sixth sense
the amityville horror
jeepers creepers
near dark
the last house on the left (original)
13 ghosts (remake)
evil dead 2
dawn of the dead (original)
28 days later

Some are favorites of mine, some aren't.
Would anyone add or take some away?

Quite the list andy, many of my favorites are on here. I second The Exorcist, Psycho, Evil Dead, Night of the Living Dead, The Shining, Carpenter's The Thing, and would like to add Jaws, Alien, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Dead/Alive. There are so many great horror films out there, almost too many to think of. Breaking it down by decade of release might help to organize things.

I 2nd Alien, Jaws, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Night of the Living Dead, Psycho, Friday the 13th, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, The Thing, The Shining, The Sixth Sense, The Amityville Horror, Jeepers Creepers, and Tremors. How about adding Misery and 28 Days Later?

There are already 32 movies here. It seems if it's too big it will take forever.

I can add jaws, texas chainsaw, alien, dead/alive, misery, 28 days later, and martyrs.

Also there's carrie. That's eight more, it would give us 40. Too many?

Edit: I could take out the foreigns and we could do a battle between those as well, because alot of korean, french, and italian movies are not here.

I would take out martyrs, demons, and let the right one in to use on another list that would include ginger snaps, suspiria, high tension, the host, audition, and what ever other goodies we could come up with.

Probably a good idea not to get too many. Some of the massive games in the Movie and Classic Rock are a bit overwhelming, so I tend to pass them by. Plus if you break it up, that leaves material for future battles.

Edit: the foreigns and black and whites are gone to use for a later game. 32 total. Any more domestic, in color movies to add?
