List RulesHorror movies that you've watched multiple times and continue to enjoy

Is there such a thing as comfort movies when it comes to horror? This is a list of horror movies we keep watching, even when there are newer, scarier, or overall better horror films to watch. Because it doesn't have to be good to be a rewatchable horror movie, you just have to love it.

These are the movies we own multiple copies of, so if they're not available on streaming, we can still get our fix. Some of the greatest horror movies, like Halloween and The Thing, have obvious rewatch value. Or, you love Tony Todd so you end up watching Final Destination as often as Candyman. But then there are movies like C.H.U.D. that are just really good B-movies.

It doesn't matter why you like rewatching horror movies, only that you love to watch them again and again. What horror movies do you think are the best to rewatch?
