    And now, as daylight fades and the creatures of the night awaken to claim the land until dawn, let's huddle together and lock all the doors, as lurking in the shadows, ready to claim your soul, is The Night Strangler....

    Surprised nobody has mentioned Suspiria (Dario Argento 1977), a classic "spaghetti horror". Music by "spaghetti prog-rock" band Goblin.

    There's also Nosferatu the Vampyre (Werner Herzog, 1979). Music by Kraut-rock band Popol Vuh.

    Re The Devils, amazing film, not a true horror but certainly some very disturbing scenes that could qualify it as such. Took me ages to find it on DVD, think it was a rip off from a VHS.

    And now I really want to mention this film as it is my all time classic horror, but it's way out in the time scale. The Black Cat starring Karloff and Lugosi (not to be confused with a terrible Black Cat from the 40s I think). One of the best films ever made full stop. At times the imagery and atmosphere in it is unsurpassed (especially considering when it was made and that it was a Hollywood blockbuster) except maybe by the original Nosferatu.

    Agree with you about 'Suspiria' - an excellent film and for some reason one I neglected to include on my list.

    There were several films titled The Black Cat, all based on the book by Edgar Allen Poe (some more loosely than others). The 1934 film with Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff is one of the better ones, though it owes more to Aleister Crowley than to Poe. The 1941 remake (also starring Lugosi) was a feeble attempt, completely lacking all of the menace of Poe's story.

    Quite often remakes are poor: one example being (appropriately) 'Cat People'. The 1942 Val Lewton film starring Simone Simon was excellent, creepy and atmospheric, with much of the horror suggested and left to the imagination of the viewer. Whereas the 1982 remake, starring Nastassia Kinski, is longer with more explicit horror but is, IMO, all the poorer for it.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
