I've ended up with a list of about 25 Can't Live Withouts, so my 10 out of them, in no particular order (as is traditional) are:

The Devils (Ken Russell - hurrah for the final DVD release!)
The Fly (Cronenberg)
Alien
Ringu
Don't Look Now (I know, it's sort of more of an atmospheric chiller, but I love it)
Hellraiser
The Thing (Carpenter)
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)
The Haunting (1963)
Event Horizon


And I would like honourable mentions for Rosemary's Baby, Candyman, The Orphanage, Scanners, [REC], Halloween and Prince of Darkness.

What happened about this poll in the end? I thought something was going to be unveiled at / just before the August event, but I have neither heard nor seen any update (unless I missed it of course!). I am interested to see what the top 100 looks like!

Not sure if this is too late, as I've only been lurking recently. I've tried to limit it to one title per director. In alphabetical order:

ALIEN
DAWN OF THE DEAD (Romero)
THE EVIL DEAD
THE EXORCIST *
OPERA
PAN'S LABYRINTH
THE THING (Carpenter)
TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME
VIDEODROME
THE WICKER MAN (Hardy)

* It's great, but it terrifies me too much ever watch it again.

Me too hopes this isn't too late but what the hell here goes:

1. The Thing (Carpenter)
2. A Nightmare On Elm St (Craven)
3. Alien (Scott)
4. Psycho (Hitchcock)
5. The Hitcher (Harmon)
6. Poltergeist (Hooper)
7. Halloween (Carpenter)
8. [REC] 2 (Plaza / Balaguero)
9. The Loved Ones (Byrne)
10. Red, White & Blue (Rumley)

Loads obviously missed off but there you go.
