Topic: Favourite Horror Movie by Country (Horror Olympics)

I thought it would be cool if we did a favourite movie by country. Then by a certain time we could see which film is mentioned most, then 2nd and 3rd most and which countries they come from, allocating the equivalent to a Gold, Silver or Bronze medal.

The Contenders EDIT (thx for the 1's I missed aza)

America
Britain
Spain
France
Italy
Scandinavia (includes Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark)
Japan
South Korea
Australia
Canada
Mexico
Thailand
Hong Kong (China)

Well I got America: The Thing?

Thailand
China (Hong Kong mostly)
