I am sure everyone has their own list.
I totally agree here wesperkins
and also noticed this too .
Some movies I also watched growing up
and last time saw on cable TV but
haven't seen for several years .
* Some I have on DVD & VHS - thankfully !
1. Creepshow ( 1982 ) *
2. Creepshow 2 ( 1987 ) *
3. Visiting Hours ( 1982 )
4. Terror Train ( 1980 )
5. Trilogy of Terror ( 1975 - TV Movie ) *
6. Trilogy of Terror 2 ( 1996 - TV Movie ) *
7. Prom Night ( 1980 ) *
8. Ghost Story ( 1981 ) *
9. Cold River ( 1982 ) *
10. A Reflection of Fear ( 1972 ) *

12. Enemy Mine ( 1985 ) *
13. When A Stranger Calls ( 1979 ) *
14. When A Stranger Calls Back ( 1993 ) *
Of course there are way more
but those are the ones that
come to mind at the moment for me .
Also agree " Krull " from 1983 was
an excellent film used to rent that one weekly
from the movie video store on VHS
back in the 1980's .
It's sad all these good classic flicks
that you and I have mentioned here are being
overlooked and ignored on TV today .
Thanks so much wesperkins for your subject post .
PS - Actually watching SK's Silver Bullet right now on AMC
as part of a Stephen King Movie Marathon today .
Some great movies In that list and I'll agree with it. I have to admit I haven't heard of s couple of them, which probably proves our theory even more. (The Trilogy of Terror's and the The Reflection of Fear). They need a channel for movies like this. Now I want to see Creepshow after after seeing it on your list! And I wish I new Stephen King marathon was on.
And it's too bad Krull isn't as well known. I loved that movie. Maybe a little cheesy but it was good. I am sure there are lots of other movies to go on this list.
Actually both " Trilogy of Terror " TV movies
are great anthology style scary
yet fun Halloween TV Movies .
Unfortunately I haven't seen the first " Trilogy of Terror " from 1975
since the early to mid 1980's on TV of course
( but luckily I do have it in my DVD Collection ) .
The second Trilogy of Terror from 1996
I saw that one on the SyFy channel
about 5 years ago and haven't see it on TV since .
If you haven't seen either one before
I do recommend these .
Here's the Wikipedia pages for both
( both are currently available for purchase on VHS & DVD ) .
Trilogy of Terror 1975

Trilogy of Terror 2 1996
---- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trilogy_of_Terror_II ----
Also you mentioned not ever viewing A Reflection of Fear from 1972 .
That's another mysterious yet creepy-eerie one as well .
Here's the Wikipedia page that one too .
---- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Reflection_of_Fear ----
The Stephen King marathon is still on right now
on the channel AMC .
I don't know if you have that channel or not
on your cable TV System .
If you do the movie " Thinner " from 1996
is on now .
As for special channels that should show these movies
the current one that shows rare type movies like these is called COMET
( but don't know if you have that channel ? not every state has it ) .
Another good channel that shows all classics is TCM ( Turner Classic Movies )
been showing star of the month Christopher Lee horror movies
every Monday night this month too .
Now I want to see Creepshow after after seeing it on your list!
That is also available for purchase on DVD .
I am watching Thinner now lol. But I have never heard of COMET. I do have AMC and TMC and watch them all the time. I will look those movies up! I was but a baby in the 70's so I didn't get to see a lot of TV movies from that era. I do get ME TV and watch old Columbo and Perry Mason episodes though. I taped the Walking Dead and just watched the season premier.
I'll try and find these movies at a local level first. I like seeing overlooked movies and paying it forward. There are so many hidden gems out there!
