Okay, here's a survey/opinion poll from me, BS Digital Q, about movies. I'll start off with horror films, and then work my way up the genre ladder. Some of you may question my choices, but hey, its called opinion!
Here's some tid-bits: 1. First, this is a multiple choice poll, so you'll be able to vote for your favorites here. I'll set it to do 5 choices.
2. Here's the breakdown. Choose at least one movie that fits the criteria below:
That should cover it, so enjoy! :)

I had to pick in no particular order:
(Other) - Alien
Sci-Fi Channel Original - They are all so bad they are truly horrific.

Sorry to rat on you guys, but in the rules I asked if those posters here would list your films in this order:
I did that to distinguish from most "Favorite" threads, as it add variety by giving you options.

Favorite- I don;t play this game very well. I have several. And no, I will not list them all.
Best Made- Depends on what you mean. Most of 'em are pretty drecky, though.
Most Scary- At present? Probably The Ring. The idea that just by watching the wrong movie you'll end up dead (through no fault of your own) is sorta creepy.
Most Original- Uhm... Maybe it's just my folklore major at work, but none of 'em have seemed really original. I give Event Horizon credit for putting their haunted house in space, but really, I'd have to give Alien a slight edge here. This film held some major surprises for viewers when it first came out.

Favorite: John Carpenter's The Thing. 'Nuff said.
Best Made: Several films can go here.
1. JC's TT is one, the claustrophobia, the music and mood, as well as great character development helped make this a pretty disturbing film.
2. Stephen King's It, Part 1. Made for TV film, but still very disturbing. Great character development, very disturbing scenes, and Tim Curry's performance as Pennywise the clown/It makes the character one of the best villians in my book.
3. Alien. A very original alien monster design, excellent balancing of horror and suspense, and Sigourney Weaver's performance as Ripley was superb!
Most Scary: Matango scared the pee out of me, a truley disturbing film. SK's It, Part 1 was very scary as well. And don't get me started on the Japanese version of The Ring!
Most Original: I won't go into detail, but Matango, SK' It, JC's The Thing, & Alien. But I will give certain Sci-Fi Originals, like Project Viper, The Bone Snatcher, and the upcoming Larva, for presenting some interesting concepts for their monsters.

I voted for NOES, Frankenstein, Dracula, Jaws, and The Wolfman
Favorite- Well, all of them
Best Made- Out of the ones I pick, no doubt this goes to Jaws
Most Scary- A toughy, but I would say the original Nightmare on Elm Street
Most Original- All of the ones I voted.

Okey,sorry about that.
Favorite-Tie between the Army Of Darkness,and original Frankenstein.
Best Made-Evil Dead 2,everything about this movie is perfect.
Most Scary-Hmmm,I hardly found ED2 scary except for a few jumpy momments.So I'd have to say Alien,the perfect balance of gore and jumpy scenes.
Most Original-Evil Dead 2 easily.

Doh! I complete forgot the Phantasm series!
Anyway, those easily fill the role of "original," "well-made," and fall among my favorites...
Well, not Phantasm II, but the others ones, definitely.

Favorite: The blob
Scariest: Psyco; one CREEPY hicthcock flick! I had nightmares for a week after that movie!
Most original: also Psyco.
