Im not sure how it happened. For a long time (until I was about 32 or 33) I had never seen any movie with Al Pacino in it. It was kind of 'my thing.' Eventually I caved and watched The Godfather. Then the floodgates just opened up. Maybe I am clinging to the Jaws thing to make me feel special.

There are a few films I have never watched due to extreme hype when they came out and my thinking they wouldn't entertain me. I passed on Titanic until a girl forced me to watch it in 99 (forced is strong and wrong, but it was watch and get laid or don't do either). I still have not seen Forest Gump for these reasons (and no with sexual ultimatums thrown at me). I'm fairly sure with all I'm gathered about Gump, I probably would like it, but having it as a "never seen" is fun in it's own way.
But any horror I've missed has not been by choice, just circumstance.

The Brood is airing on FLIX this month, so I'll get to cross that one off my list.

I really had to sit and think about this one, but here is the list of Classics that I have yet to see:

Cabinet of Dr.Caligari
Phantom of the Opera (1925)
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931)
I Walked with A Zombie
Black Cat (1934)
Village of The Damned (1960)
Martin
Freaks
Invisible Man (1933)
House of Wax (1953)
Don't Look Now

I also haven't seen a lot of the sequels to the old Universal horror films (House of Dracula, Son of Frankenstein, etc.)

House on haunted Hill (1959) - This is the biggest one for me being the huge Price fan that I am, and I've seen the remake many times. I've seen enough of it on TV, but never sat down and watched it from beginning to end. Been hoping for a Blu release, and the Paramount DVD never goes down in price.
The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) - I finally got the Blu set so I will remedy these soon.
Creature from the Black Lagoon 3D (1954)
The Mummy (1932)
The Birds
Rear Window - Finally got Hitchcock Blu set, will be watching these soon!
The Fly (original) - Need to grab Blu.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) - Need to grab Blu, disappointed in lack of extras.
Last House on the Left - Rape on film really disturbs me, but I have the remake and I Spit on Your Grave, just haven't grabbed this for some odd reason.
Cannibal Holocaust - Waiting for Blu. Held off because of animal violence.
Freaks - Holding out for Blu.
Carnival of Souls - Waiting for Criterion to release on Blu.
Cabinet of Dr.Caligari - Waiting for Criterion to release on Blu.
Eyes Without a Face - Will be grabbing Criterion Blu eventually.
The Innocents - Waiting for Blu I guess.
Alice, Sweet Alice - Waiting for Blu I guess.
Battle Royale - Been trying to find book version of Blu.
Ringu - Seen remake, need to grab DVD collection. Not a huge fan of J horror.
Ju-on - Own, but just haven't got around to watching. Not a huge fan of J horror.
Human Centipede - No rush to see but I'm sure I'll check it out one day.
SalÚ, or The 120 Days of Sodom - No rush to see this.
Serbian Film - Don't know if I care to watch this.
Bride of Chucky + Seed of Chucky - No rush to see this, but I'll eventually watch them when I grab the Blu box set.

I wouldn't really say all the straight to video sequels for Hellraiser, Children of the Corn, Howling, ect. are famous or essential so I'm not listing them. Most of the sequels that hit theatres I have seen.

What the hell is Body Melt??), there's only two that I think are must-sees for any true horror fan: The Wicker Man and Let The Right One In.

As far as which version of The Wicker Man, I don't think it matters as much as you think. I do prefer the shorter "theatrical version" as I think longer versions give away a little too much of the mystery. Less is more, so to speak. A few gaps in the narrative keep you as in the dark as the protagonist. That all said, there's a supposed "final" version soon to be released on Blu, the one that made the theatrical rounds back in October. If you made that your first viewing, that's an acceptable option.

Let The Right One In shows what the horror genre is truly capable of. Let's face it, oftentimes we have to excuse bad acting, preposterous setups, and questionable actions in our genre of choice. But even though LTROI begins with the already non-existent concept of vampirism, it's also an excellent character study. The acting, the photography, all top-notch. Let The Right One In happens to be a great film, regardless of the genre. The fact that it's horror is merely a bonus.
Let the Right One In is still on Netflix: Watch Instant and I have to (finally stop being a prick and) watch The Innkeepers, so I'll make sure to put that one on the same night's menu.

I took your advice on Wicker Man and blind bought the theatrical version. And watched it.

Anyway, I also watched about 6 on my list = Freaks, Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1978, Lair of the White Worm, Phantasm III, Return to Salem's Lot, Lifeforce, Remote Control, Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat, also Nosferatu the Vampyre which I forgot to make a note of, and... I finally found a copy of Possession.

Watch Glengarry Glen Ross as fast as possible. One of the greatest casts ever assembled (Alan Arkin, Kevin Spacey, Al Pacino, Ed Harris, Jack Lemmon, Jonathan Pryce and Alec Baldwin). One of my top ten greatest films ever.

Congrats on breaking the seal! A word of warning though: with the exception of the HBO movie about Jack Kevorkian, you can pretty much skip everything he did after 1999.

First one is the only one that is essential, the rest are mediocre to awful.

Update: I have still not see anything from my list. I did re-watch Leprechaun recently and will try to make my way through all the sequels (none of which I've seen) so I've got that going St. Patrick's Day weekend.
