Hmm...Well...first off, welcome to the forum.

I do, however, (and forgive my imperial nature), question your logic. I mean, your taste is your taste, but:

1) The first Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a classic. If you like the new one better, it's somewhat sad, but it's still all good. Saying the original one is crap, however, isn't a completely wise statement.
2) The Exorcist III is a wonderfullly campy horror movie. I LOVE that movie. Make no mistake, it's nowhere near the first, but it is, in my opinion, a worthy of the name Exorcist.
3) Well...your taste is your taste and I haven't seen it (so I won't talk out of nowhere), but think movie got terrible reviews and I can think of a good many horror films more than worthy of this third spot.

Again, sorry about that...I don't mean to be harsh.

Alien

Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Videodrome


I don't like horror very much, but this is easily my favorite.

Directed by David Cronenberg and starring James Woods and Deborah Harry.

It's about a sleazy owner of a TV station trying to boost his ratings by showing torture.

The problem is that around here those films are so damn hard to get.

There are lots of great Chinese and Japanese horror films - including Satan Returns (666 mo gui fu huo) - but what I particularly like about these is the sometimes unintentionally hilarious subtitles, that have the ability to break your concentration.

For gore fests you can't beat early Peter Jackson - especially Braindead. And then there's always the good old zombie films, recently reinvented by 28 Days Later. I'm looking forward to watching Dawn of the Dead through my fingers....

For all fans of the Exorcist, you really must check out http://www.angryalien.com/0204/exorcistbunnies.html where the whole film is retold in 30 seconds by bunnies...
