    Oh The Shining is definitely on my top 5! I had goosebumps going up my arm when I first watched it.
    I like "Salo or the 120 Days of Sodom", "Rosemary's Baby", "Martyrs", "Amityville Horror"..... Omg I love the old "I spit on your grave" it deserves an honourable mention. ;)

    Horror movies as a genre are targeted to kids and teens, not adults. That's why they rarely if ever receive awards nominations or even actual awards - unless it's some technical category like special effects or make-up. Horror movies tend to have a very short shelf life - they don't age well. After we have seen one - even a personal favorite a couple of times - there is no scare or horror effect left in them. Plus they are too easily mocked in pop culture or played for laughs. Think of Jack Nicholson in THE SHINING, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, Dracula was even played for laughs sort of in a popular afternoon TV soap opera.
