After spending a lot of time last week writing about what some famous books and characters were nearly called, I was inspired to do the same thing for horror movies. It's the time of year where we bump horror flicks to the top of our Netflix queue - I can't imagine putting Headcheese on the list, but it could have gone that way had Tobe Hooper not changed his mind...

1.

- Halloween.

2.

- The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

3.

- Alien.

4.

- Assault on Precinct 13.

5.

- Scream. Coincidence that the Wayans Brothers decided to steal

Scary Movie

when they spoofed

Scream

?

6.

- Last House on the Left.

7.

- I Drink Your Blood. I think I might almost prefer

Phobia

, myself.

8.

- The Crazies.

9.

- Last House on Dead End Street.

10.

-

Shivers

.

If you're a horror movie freak like I am, you can find more fun lists like this one in The Book of Lists: Horror. I love a good trivia book (obviously) and I find myself pulling this one out every fall.
