A Nightmare on Elm Street (1985) – Only for its unintentionally funny moments!

The Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) – The man in a lizard suit reminds me of the Star Trek episode where lizard taking to Captain Kirk had a bronchial asthma problem (“Arena”).
The Thing (1951) – Did anyone notice James Arness of Gunsmoke in the carrot suit?
The Pit and the Pendulum (1961) – Roger Corman’s production featured Vincent Price’s best performance as a complete lunatic!
Rabid (1977) – My personal favorite David Cronenberg film, with adult film star Marilyn Chambers in the lead role.
Suspiria (1977) – The commercials alone scared the shit out of me! The movie was a different story!
The Beast with Five Fingers (1946) – Peter Lorre was a gas! Ahead of it’s time, really!
