Favorite Horror Movies by Decade?

Hey guys,
Was thinking about the fact that I do not have enough of the old classics in my collection. This got me wondering what some of the favorite horror movies from each decade are. Please list a few of your favorites from each decade, going back as far as you wish.

For me, the 70's and 80's had so many good horror films made (of course what I consider a good film might be bad in someone elses eyes) that I couldn't choose.
