I've managed to see 37 of the films they listed, and of the remaining 13, I have 6 here waiting to be watched. I had never heard of Amer or Berberian Sound Studio.

This list just lost all credibility ^_^ . 

 

Lol...I just watched that movie for the first time a week or two ago, because it was on that list. It was incredibly ridiculous. The bit with Jerry O'Connell laying on the deck of the boat after being chewed up but still not dying was very silly.

The Skeleton Key (2005), starring Kate Hudson, was a very good horror film.  I saw it in the theatre.  It was set in a plantation in Louisiana with lots of Southern Gothic atmosphere, and some terrifically scary scenes.  To top it off, it had a great twist ending.

I'm sure i'll catch crap for mentioning "House of a Thousand Corpses" :P

 

I like that one too. But, yeah, we seem to be in the minority.
