Please recommend horror anthologies for me

I know this topic has come up, but couldn't find anything that fit the bill. So can some of you suggest horror anthology movies for me. I actually enjoy these, even if they aren't particularly good. Here's a few I already know of:

Creepshow (FANTASTIC!)
Creepshow 2 (quite good)
Cat's Eye (quite good)
Tales from the Darkside (quite good)
The Vault of Horror (1973 - quite good)
Tales from the Crypt (1972 - quite good)
Trapped Ashes (so-so)
Hood of Horror (not too good)
Twilight Zone The Movie (good)

Well, these are the only ones that come to my mind... Any others?

Techincally, the stories are directed by a Chinese (Chan), a South Korean (Park), and a Japanese (Miike)

While it isn't completely graphic, the Chan story is actually the sickest one.

Are you sure it's this one? Tales of Terror (With Price) is definetly an anthology. I thought Scream/Again had just one solo story.

Tales of Terror - Terrific Corman Poe Picture
The Uncanny - Peter Cushing, Ray Milland, and Donald Pleasence battle killer kitties
The House That Dripped Blood - Okay Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee Amicus film
Torture Garden - Another okay Amicus film, but Peter Cushing is great as The Man Who Collected Poe
The Monster Club -rather goofy '80s film with the always great Vincent Price
Trilogy of Terror - three words: Zuni fetish doll

Masters of Horror S1 and S2, not the greatest but do able. And yeah, the Japanese segment is the tamest of the three.

I was going to say Three ... Extremes myself, beautifully shot flick.

'Dumplings' looked great because it was shot by famed DP Christopher Doyle. The film incidently was 91 minutes in length and cut for the anthology presentation.

although I'm happy with my MoC dvd edition of Kwaidan - Criterion seriousily needs to get the longer cut and release it on bluray.

The endings for Dumplings (3 Extremes vs. Full Release) are substantially different as well.

Campfire Tales (1997)

I remember it being a fun little movie. Four kids sit around a campfire and tell urban legends. There's a bunch of recognizeable stars even if they're not that big, lol.

It's available on DVD.

First one I thought of. Michael Redgrave is splendid in the dummy sequence, easily the best of the strangely extensive horror sub-genre involving ventriloquists and their possessed sidekicks, and the nightmarish final scene tying all of the stories together is masterfully executed. The golf story is truly awful however, and was sensibly cut for the American version, though the ending obviously makes less sense without it.

Nuts, not available on blockbuster.com. Most of the others are, so I've added them.

Believe it or not, I have Creepshow 3 on the way. I've heard it sucks, major-time, but I thought I'd give it a try. Has anyone heard about the possibility of a Creepshow 4, with Stephen King stories, again, this time? I saw it on IMDB...

For the love of god DO NOT mistakenly rent/buy/see/touch Campfire Stories by mistake. I would place this above Plan 9 and Manos as the single worst movie in history.

I am curently watching 6 Films To Keep You Awake. A fantastic set of 6, 1 hour spanish language horror movies.

Although not available on DVD yet, John Carpenter's Body Bags was pretty good.

Also there is a horror anthology coming out this Halloween tha looks good (Trick or Treat?)

It's cheesy, campy and dated. But, Darren McGavin makes it worth it.
