Tobe Hooper‘s classic deserves special notice not only because of its place in the horror hall of fame, but also due to its excellent special effects and attention to detail. It’s not precisely gory, but those who are squeamish should give a wide berth to Gunnar Hansen and his disturbing family.

Codex Mortis

The Codex Mortis Horror Hosts (Ludwig von Stroodle and Calamity Brains) are married and live in West Virginia. Pretty much everyone who sees their cabin agrees that it would be an ideal setting for a horror movie. Their pets include a black widow spider, a smart dog, and a stupid dog. When they aren’t watching horror movies, they can be found at whiskey festivals, Renaissance fairs, and board game nights.
