From Halloween classics to pure camp, the ChicagoPride.com editors pick the Top 10 Halloween/Horror flicks!

1 Psycho (1960) buy the movie
Although Director Alfred Hitchcock's film is over 40 years old, it still manages to give you a scare.  This classic is wonderfully crafted.

2 Hellbent (2005) buy the movie
Set in West Hollywood, this is the first ever gay slasher film.  Hot guys with plenty of blood and gore.  What's not to like?

3 Silence of the Lambs (1991) buy the movie
Based on the book by Thomas Harris, Silence of the Lambs is one of the best spine-tingling thirllers of all time.

4 The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) buy the movie
This one-of-a-kind musical is more camp than it is scary, yet it's become a cult classic.

5 Halloween (1978) buy the movie
In 1978, little known director John Carpenter unleased the Halloween series.  Halloween is certainly a classic.

6 The Shining (1980) buy the movie
Based on a book by Stephen King, Stanley Kubrick's thriller is one of the best movies of the 80's and is sure to creep you out.

7 The Exorcist (1973) buy the movie
One of the scariest movies of all-time!

8 Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) buy the movie
This 1950's classic sci-fi chiller remains a remarkable and brilliant film.

9 Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) buy the movie
This Hitchcock-style thriller is one of the scariest movies of all time.

10 Night of the Living Dead (1968) buy the movie
This black-and-white frightening favorite is a gruesome and often funny flick.
