Lisa and the Devil
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

Let Sleeping Corpses Lie
Vampyres

I don't like the title Let Sleeping Corpses Lie & prefer The Living Dead At Manchester Morgue.

Cant believe Ghost Galleon made it. Truely aweful entry in the wonderful Blind Dead series.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Black Christmas
Female Trouble (I love it, but is it horror???)
Deranged
The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires

I been dying to see Phase IV but don't know if there is a decent edition out there. Also, Sugar Hill sounds quite interesting. Other '74 movies I really like are Flesh for Frankenstein (imbd lists it as '73) and Blood for Dracula.

Is the DVD that's out not any good? I've only seen the laserdisc myself.
My list:

TCM
Black Christmas
Captain Kronos
Phase IV
It's Alive

These polls are making me want to watch a few of these again. It's been a while for some.

Tough to consider IT'S ALIVE a 1974 movie since the release everyone remembers was much later. It still doesn't quite crack my list though:

Deranged (Roberts Blossom OWNS this movie. Love Ormsby's handling of the narrative)
Black Christmas (never heard of it...)
Blood for Dracula (Wirgins!)
The Ghost Galleon (still think the blind dead are the coolest looking zombies out there)
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (can't recall if I've ever seen this movie?)
