The Haunting [DVD] [1963]
3.  The Haunting [DVD] [1963] DVD ~ Julie Harris

Hellraiser [DVD] [1987]
8.  Hellraiser [DVD] [1987] DVD ~ Andrew Robinson

4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (59 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Friday The 13th Part VI Jason Lives [1986] [DVD]
9.  Friday The 13th Part VI Jason Lives [1986] [DVD] DVD ~ Thom Mathews

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Ghostwatch [1992] [DVD]
10.  Ghostwatch [1992] [DVD] DVD ~ Michael Parkinson

£17.99   Used & New from: £6.42
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (65 customer reviews)

Ginger Snaps [DVD] [2001]
11.  Ginger Snaps [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Emily Perkins
The list author says:
  "Werewolves and menstruation: surely nothing could be as scary...or as darkly hilarious. The Heathers of horror, a refreshingly nasty antidote to today's watered down teen slashers."
£5.88   Used & New from: £0.22
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (42 customer reviews)

May [DVD]
12.  May [DVD] DVD ~ Angela Bettis

The Descent  (Special Edition)  [DVD]
13.  The Descent  (Special Edition) [DVD] DVD ~ MyAnna Buring
