Maybe it's not what they had in mind but the Pizza Face episode makes me think of John Carpenter's The Thing because of the psychological element.

OK, this is my best and I'll throw in a "[Possibly]" if I'm not sure:
  • "I Think His Name is Baxter Stockman" > Tetsuo the Iron Man [Possibly]
  • "Monkey Brains" > The Re-Animator [Possibly]
  • "Cockroach Terminator" > The Terminator
  • "Parasitica" >Invasion of the Body Snatchers [Possibly] (could be anything really)
  • "Invasion of the Squirrelanoids" > Alien
  • "Fungus Humungous" > Galaxy of Terror [Possibly] (could be anything really)
  • "The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman" > The Fly (though the title is a reference to Gregor Samsa)
  • "Pizza Face" > Invasion of the Body Snatchers [Possibly] (could be anything really)
  • "Plan 10" > Titles is a reference to Plan 9 from outer space but the plot has virtually nothing to do with that movie, more closely resembles Freaky Friday.
  • "A Chinatown Ghost Story" > Big Trouble in Little China
  • "Into Dimension X!" > The plot has similarities to a lot of things, might homage Jumanji or John Carter.
  • "Within the Woods" > Friday the 13th with hints of Creepshow
  • "A Foot Too Big" > Not sure, could be just about anything featuring Bigfoot.
  • "Buried Secrets" > The Thing
  • "The Croaking" > Wrong Turn [Possibly]
  • "In Dreams" > Nightmare on Elm Street with Carebears thrown in
  • "Race with the Demon!" > The demon racer Donnie is based on Rat Fink but I can't think of a particular movie, maybe Christine.
  • "Eyes of the Chimera" > The Giant Claw [Possibly]
  • "The Noxious Avenger" > Toxic Avenger
  • "Attack of the Mega Shredder!" > Godzilla
  • "The Creeping Doom" > Godzilla vs Biollante [Possibly]
  • "The Fourfold Trap" > Saw
  • "The Outlaw Armaggon" > Star Trek First Contact [Possibly]
  • "The Evil of Dregg" > Aliens [Possibly]
  • "The Insecta Trifecta" > The Fly again [Possibly] (reminds me more of the love potion episode of Rick and Morty)
  • "Bat in the Belfry" > Batman 1966 (might also parody something more in line with horror)
  • "The Power Inside Her" > Carrie [Possibly] (somewhat King-esque, possibly some other book of his like Firestarter.
  • "Tokka vs. the World" > Gamera
  • "Scroll of the Demodragon" and it's follow ups > Could be just about anything involving summoning the devil.
  • "Lone Rat and Cubs" > Lone Wolf and Cub
  • "The Wasteland Warrior" and follow ups > Mad Max but possibly The Stand
  • "The Curse of Savanti Romero" and follow ups > Various monster movies starring public domain characters or at least characters so generic they might as well be public domain.

Please note that many are guesses because the concept is so generic I can't be sure if it references anything in particular unless I know exactly what is being referenced, many of these may not even reference anything in particular. And yes, I included some non-horror things because I know what the reference is.

Wow, quite a list Neatoman.

I dont think there is much more to add other than ask, was the season 4 ep with Wyrm supposed to be Wish Master? How they got rid of him at the end was the same.

"Riddle of the Ancient Aeons" = "The Dark Crystal"

I have no idea if that episode was based on any particular horror movie, it is however well known that the script is recycled from a different show. Like, shamelessly recycled:

I was just expecting this to be the Dracula/Frankenstein stuff from the fifth season. That was a really fun story arc.
