The Curse Of The Blair Witch shouldn't count, although it's an interesting idea for a chart.

No IT? Certainly not good, but nightmare inducing for coulrophobics, I know at least a couple of those...

the list is null, without Trilogy - I would thought that it would have been a given, horrible exclusion.

I've never seen any of the films on that list, but I refuse to believe that all 10 of them are better than Trilogy of Terror.

I remember catching that on tv as a kid, and the final image gave me nightmares for weeks.

Before Frank Darabont directed the infamous Shawshank Redemption, he directed a fantastic little made for T.V. Thriller called "Buried Alive". That's my favorite. I also like Spielberg's "Duel"
