    The original Saw is a game changer for the genre and kicked the door open for Hostel and the new generation of extreme style horror flicks. This one I would say can be considered classic.

      Let The Right One In

      The Mist

      I think there are others that will be held in high regard but I think those 3 are among the very few that will be considered truly classic.

        Sinister
        Jeepers Creepers
        The Devil's Rejects
        House of the Devil
        Drag Me To Hell
        Halloween 2
        Saw
        The Strangers
        Texas Chainsaw Massacre
        (2003)

        Despite the over-abundance of generic, terrible movies, I think these are among some that will be more positively remembered over time, & rightfully so, considering there's actual thought put behind them. The last of the bunch I mentioned will certainly be regarded as a classic due to the fact that it's one of the best remakes out there, it was insanely, hugely financially successful, & it started what initially seemed like a never-ending trend of horror remakes.

          I disagree. I find H2 pretty hated by horror communities online like BD. I would seriously hope in 20 or so years from now someone who is getting into horror would prefer the original Halloween/Halloween 2 over this. Same goes for TCM. I would rather have the original any day then the remake.

            Rob Zombie has a pretty high status therefore H2 will be remembered whether it's a classic is debatable but it definitely will still be talked about 20+ years from now.

              Attack the Block

              Pontypool
              Rubber

              Weather I like a number of them or not.
              I like both of these lists. I really like the cult list. Rings true, in my mind.

              I think lots of movies will be remembered as classics for many different reasons. Like High Tension is a classic to me, and will be remembered years from now, as launching french horror into the mainstream horror community. Rob Zombies The Devil Rejects (I saw it before house of the devil) is an example of raw violence, that reminisces back to the original ISOYG, or LHOTL. I think his movies will be remembered kind of in the same vein. Groundhouse will be remembered simply because of who made it.

              I choose to use the word "remembered" instead of "classic", because I still think the movies I'm listing are good films overall.

              Anyways looking at the post I quoted, I guess the movies I list are classic, and cult, and I've included them for many dif reasons.

              Poultreygeist, Citizen Toxie, Return to Nuke Em' High
              Gingersnaps (series, not just the first.)
              Final Destination
              Blade II/ Pan's Labyrinth
              28 Days Later
              Jason X
              May
              The Ring / The Grudge (asian to english remake association)
              High Tention/The Hills Have Eyes (Alex Aja violent intro to American audience)
              Shaun of the Dead
              Zombieland
              Three Extremes... (pairing of 3 of asia's finest directors to make an anthology)
              The Descent (legitimately one of the best horror movies ever)
              The Devils Rejects
              Saw
              American Psycho
              Behind the Mask (found footage deconstruction comedy horror)
              Slither (perfect combo of gore, laughs, and sci-fi horror)
              Grindhouse
              The Mist (can be considered one of the greatest modern horror films)
              Deadgirl (hmm, this didn't get a lot of exposure, but I love it)
              Eden Lake (^^ it's just a great exercise in violent thriller horror)
              Let the Right One In ("classic" just oozes from this movie. no brainer really)
              Pulse (asian, not that "one of the worst remakes ever" American one.
              Drag Me to Hell (simply for being Raimi's return. Was a good movie too)
              The House of the Devil (good movie that will remind you of other true classics)
              Trick R Treat
              Stake Land
              Scream 4
              The Bay (environment horror that will make you squirm for days)
              Cabin in the Woods
              Human Centipede (these movies WILL be remembered. The became pop culture phenomenons, and aside from that, I truly think the 2nd film was a masterpiece, even if it's tough to sit through.

                  Weather I like a number of them or not.
                  I found myself nodding in agreement with this list. I would like to say that only by lack of a wide release will Attack the Block remain a cult film. This movie seemed very in touch with it's respective generation, but it was grossly ignored. Kill List is another film that should be held in higher regard, but maybe it's too alienating.

                  With that, I would have to give the last couple decades to the British. Personally, I already consider these classics:

                  The Descent
                  28 Days Later
                  Eden Lake
                  Attack the Block
                  Shaun of the Dead
                  Kill List

                  and not horror but the neo-noirish Red Riding Trilogy is pretty great too.

                    Halloween and Halloween 2 will be remembered, but for all the wrong reasons.

                          And I don't think we can include Scream. The first two came out in the '90's, the third one was completely forgettable & sucks, and part 4 is just a lackluster rehash of parts one & two. Had Scream 4 actually delivered like the first, then it'd maybe be considered a classic eventually, but it fell way short of everyone's expectations.

                          I think the 2000's & up to this point will be remembered as being a stale & lazy period of horror. You have a few classics that you recognize as being so immediately, a couple good movies, & then the rest are fucking awful.

                            Let The Right One In stands head and shoulders above them all, IMO.

                            Hopefully the worthless US remake won't be remembered more. I don't see how it could... It's inferior in every way.
