I'm not sure what all you've seen, but the obvious ones are:

Halloween
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Exorcist
Night of the Living Dead (from Elite)
Friday the 13th
The Shining
Carrie
Psycho

The not so obvious ones are:

The Thing
Re-animator
The Changling
The Omen
Rosemary's Baby

Ones that could be considered scary because they are so disturbing:

Last House on the Left
I Spit on Your Grave
Freaks

Not all are on DVD, but all are on VHS or DVD
Enjoy!

I thought that Evil Dead 1 was much scarier than Evil Dead 2! Part 2 is more like a transition intto the
"Shop S-mart" stuff.

If you plan to see any Evil Dead movies, I really suggest that you try to see them all and in sequential order. That is, of course, if you're interested in understanding how this francise got to be such a cult classic.

(BTW By watching all 3 E Deads, you'll also see how this series definitely evolved and was affected by its cult status.)

Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser 2. Alien (ok, so it's sci-fi/horror, still a damn fine movie). Creepshow. Martin. The first Nightmare on Elm St. Shivers (aka They Came From Within). Carnival of Souls. Repulsion (some might argue that it isn't horror, but it's certainly pretty freaky). The Village of the Damned (the ORIGINAL version!). The Ninth Gate. Trilogy of Terror (the poster for this movie scared me for years). Dead-Alive (the poster for this one also scared me for years). The Wicker Man. Cujo. The Dead Zone. Poltergeist. Interview With The Vampire. Those, along with the ones already mentioned, should keep you busy for a while.
