Zombie Holocaust (aka Dr. Butcher M.D.) Marino Girolami 1980
One of the greatest standoffs ever realized : zombies vs. cannibals. Who wins? The Audience!
Flesh Eater Bill Hinzman 1988
Though laughably incompetent and often misogynistic, few other films capture the flavor of the Fall season as well as this.
Don't Look In the Basement (aka The Forgotten) S.F Brownrigg 1973
Eerie atmosphere that builds to a punchy climax.
City of the Living Dead Lucio Fulci 1980
Zombies + demonic powers = some of the goriest stuff ever done by Fulci (or anyone).
The Unholy Camilo Vila 1988
Crazy cast, striking imagery. Sexy and gross. Think "Diet Hellraiser."
Don't Look Now Nicolas Roeg 1973
A very important lesson is learned from this film - don't ever chase your past into darkness.
Ginger Snaps John Fawcett 2000
My absolute favorite coming-of-age tale and the most interesting example of equating the transformation to werewolf with the turmoil of adolescent bodily changes.
The Brood David Cronenberg 1979
Emotional trauma is your greatest enemy.
Prince of Darkness John Carpenter 1987
Carpenter's most underrated work. An ambient and nihilistic approach to a biblical apocalypse.
Lords of Salem Rob Zombie 2013
A terrifying modern look at how fucking cool Massachusetts history is.
