Actually, you can find Blood On Satan's Claw on Youtube, if anyone interested. Also City of the Dead/Horror Hotel is in the public domain (but honestly it's not really good).
Also missing: Kiki's Delivery Service (1989) ;) after all, it's about a teenage witch.

Blood on Satans Claw is amazing real English folk horror and the OST is fucking freakyfolk like Magnet's OST on The Wicker Man.

(I agree, it's City of the Dead who's boring. A few interesting sequences, but most of it is rather shit. Blood on Satan's Claw is amazing, clearly.)

no love for voodoo? Aside from all the primordial Zombie flicks, Serpent and the Rainbow was a good'n despite its face-cringing camp.

I need to find more though.
