You might try some of the classic Hammer films, as well:

Curse of the Werewolf
Horror of Dracula
Revenge of Frankenstein

There's a lot more, but this is a good starting point.

I recommend a Stephen King night. Most of his movies are as great as The Shining and Misery but Carrie, Rose Red, The Dark Half, The Silver Bullet, and much more can easily be found. Stephen King's The IT is getting remade, I definitely recommend you watch the original.
