Post Top 10 must-have horror film Blu-rays?

I couldn't seem to find a thread asking this question about this specific genre, redirect me if I missed it. But, in your opinion, what are your top 10 must-have horror films on Blu-ray?
Last Bought:
The Blood Trilogy
Last Watched: The Silence of the Lambs
My current most anticipated release: Scream Factory's releases of The Burning, The Howling and The Fog

I am not sure if I can make a list of 10, but Psycho and Halloween '78 both have great blu-rays IMO.

While Halloween doesn't have the Cundney-approved transfer, I can forgive that because of the great improvement over the dvd.

Psycho is my personal favorite film of all time, and the u.k. steelbook does the film justice. Great PQ and AQ for an amazing film.

Others that I can name is the universal classic monster set and the blu ray of the woman in black which are both awesome.
My Top 20 Films of all time!
1. Jurassic Park 2. Psycho (1960) 3. The Godfather Part II 4. There Will Be Blood 5. The Godfather 6. Zodiac 7. Thief 8. Blade Runner 9. Halloween (1978) 10. Drive 11. The Tree Of Life 12. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 13. Her 14. Bambi 15. Mean Streets 16. Casablanca 17. Pan's Labyrinth 18. On The Waterfront 19. Paris, Texas 20. The Usual Suspects

JAWS is a film that everyone should have in their collection. Picture and sound is excellant.
The original A Nightmare on Elm St also looks very good.
Psycho also looks very good on blu.
Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, and Army of Darkness all look fantastic as well.

Those are just a few off the top of my head.

Yes, ISLAND OF LOST SOULS is a definite must-own! And the entire ALIEN quartet with PROMETHEUS thrown in, for that matter!
Might as well add INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (1956 and 1978 versions), ZOMBIELAND, and the black-and-white director's cut of THE MIST, among others!

Lots of fantastic horror is already on Blu-ray (plus lots of schlock and lots of guilty pleasures)!

All of them. Blind buying expensive horror movies is one of the smartest investments you can make.
