Carrie ('02): best body count, and Carrie doesn't have to die, in this one. Always pulls me out of a funk, to watch it.
Panic Room (can't watch it enough: maybe because our first few homes were in apartment buildings we bought and were gentrifying. Takes me back to being 20, in a big, empty, scary old building, with a kid to protect)
The House of Rothschild ('34 -the American version: not the Nazi version) Heart-warming family film to watch with the kids
Thirty Days of Night (love all that darkness and quiet and snow - and I can identify with the Vamps - plus, there's Manu Bennett, with long hair AND a beard: YUM!)
Mommie Dearest (I try to live my life by WWJD - "What Would Joan Do?")
Imitation of Life (best tear-jerker EVER)
Don't be Afraid of the Dark (original version - wow, wow WOW)
Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
Rosemary's Baby (I wanna be just like Minnie, when I'm old)
Whatever Happened to Aunt Alice?
Schindler's List (for when I'm feeling too smug about the future...)
We have all these at the house in Aspen, where we watch more movies, so maybe that's a factor in repeat viewing. But we have them because they're favorites.

I find that I don't re-watch as much as I used to, and because I was in the business I've seen lots of films multiple times simply because I was doing my job. Of the films I have at home that get re-watched:
Stuntman with Peter O'Toole. The fact that the movie is circular, where the end is the beginning, the whole All Powerful god/director motif, the Jungian nods, and Barbara Hershey and O'Toole at their peak just keep me coming back. (Probably more than 100 times over the years.)
Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Nee, ping, and neeewomp. neewomp. They call me... Tim.
Casablanca (reading between the lines of the script to the darker one it started out with)
Cinema Paradiso. A bus-man's holiday. There are various cuts of this film, and if you dig around online you can see the original script. It shows how important proper editing is.
King of Hearts. Insanity of war, slapstick, and Genvieve Bujold
Moroder's version of "Metropolis." Old meets new.
Rocky Horror Especially fun after seeing the scene in "Everything You wanted to Know About Sex" with John Carradine that was the obvious inspiration.
Shakespeare in Love, which is a love it or hate it movie.
Muppet Movie. A bear in his natural habitat - a Studebaker!
(BTW, take a good look at Orson Wells as he is sizing up Kermit, then skip to the last scene in "The Force Awakens" Luke is Orson Wells?!?!?)
