Best (Horror) Blind Buy?

Far and away, the 2-disc "The Descent" from the UK is my best blind horror buy to date. I was just in awe and it stays with me to this day. I have the new edition of "Black Christmas" waiting in the wings and i await watching it with eager anticipation, but TD really shook me.

So what is your best horror blind buy DVD as I want to get some ideas of what is missing in my collection?

The Descent for me as well. There's also this movie called My Little Eye that was surprisingly good. Not great, but a hell of a lot better than I expected.

Dead & Buried (great to see this one has a couple of fans!)

Black Christmas (no doubt!!)

Deathdream aka The Night Andy Came Home (highly underrated!!)

definitley has to be either The Descent or Audition, both top notch films and ones I bought on a punt. The Innocents would be next in line but I'd read a lot about that and was fairly confident to likin it to some extent.
