    Bob I see your post attracted one of life’s real horrors, “Spammer From The Third World”…

    I have a hard time comparing the classics with contemporary works so I just included the latter on my list in no particular order;

    Jeepers Creepers
    Silent Hill
    Hellraiser
    Dreamcatcher
    Constantine
    The Ring
    Legion
    The Mothman Prophecies
    Let The Right One In
    Case 39

    And I agree 30 Days Of Night should be on the list but I didn’t want to duplicate. The reviews I’ve read about the sequel were not favorable though…

    SATELLITE BEACH, Fla., Oct. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Leading the LED tube light revolution, Lighting Science Group (OTCBB: LSCG), the world’s premier LED tube lights manufacturer, announced today that it has received more than $100 million of LED tube product orders this year—an increase of more than 100% as compared to the same time last year.

    “Surpassing the $100 million order mark this year is not only a significant achievement for our company, but for the entire LED lighting industry,” said Jim Haworth, chairman and chief executive officer of Lighting Science Group. “As a result of increasing consumer and business demand, we expect LED lighting sales to grow exponentially over the next couple of years.”

The Company not only earned the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s first ENERGY STAR label, but maintains a leadership position in the number of ENERGY STAR qualified products. Lighting Science Group has a proven ability to out-innovate, out-grow and out-perform other actors on the lighting stage. Consistent with its holistic commitment to green operations, the Company makes every effort to ensure that its raw materials are sourced sustainably, resulting in products that, unlike Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs), are toxic-free and completely recyclable.

    Major lighting retailers; lighting companies; retail chains like Yankee Candle and GNC; cities like Salt Lake City, UT,Washington, D.C., and Lewiston, ME; military installations such as the Naval Base in Ventura County, CA; and world renowned architects and builders have all chosen Lighting Science Group to be their lighting technology provider.

    Ideal LED driver for dimmable LED tube lighting applications

    To drive dimmable LED tube lighting fixtures such as LED tube light and LED grid light, a semiconductor manufacturer recently introduced a switch dimmable LED driver product, which uses integrated circuit to dim LED lights brightness to four different levels. This new LED driver product is designed to be simple for use and compatible with any existing standard light switch.

    This switch dimmable LED driver offers an attractive alternative to TRIAC dimming driver because it enables dimming of LED tube lights in any location, provides better quality light source without flicker, and increases energy efficiency of LED lights through the reduction of the excess circuitry required to accommodate the holding current of the TRIAC dimmer. In addition, the new LED driver product does not require installation of a wall dimmer.

    The switch dimmable LED driver is considered to be an ideal driver solution for dimmable LED lighting applications. It utilizes an average-mode current control method to regulate output current, so no loop compensation is required, and quick and accurate response to input voltage fluctuations are possible. The LED driver product is currently available in SOIC-8 and SOIC-16 packages.

    I would single out Astral movie, Mirrors, Call

  15. Mark Soroka said:

    Great list! I would add three other films that still give me the chills: The Exorcist, The Omen (original version with Gregory Peck) and The Shining. I know The Shining was never a critical hit but it had some really chilling moments, such as when the twin girls suddenly appear in the hallway as Danny Torrence chases a ball. They don’t make movies like they used to!

    Although in the end you can build an object oriented site on top of Word –
    Press just like you can with any other framework.

    The best thing about WP customization is that you do not
    need the help of any professional to incorporate these simple features on
    your website’s web pages. Assign a website project in the
    hands of Word – Press professionals and get maximum benefit out of it in terms of increased search engine traffic which ultimately leads to increased revenue.
