    I went with Abel Ferrara's supremely low-budget; gritty film DRILLER KILLER, although many of the choices on the list had their moments.

    Lots of great movies here, but none equal the visually magnificent Nosferatu, The Vampyre. That is undoubtedly the best Dracula film ever made, IMO. Ridley Scott's beautifully shot Alien deserves mention as well. My third pick would be the first 15 minutes of When a Stranger Calls. ;)

    No shit, probably the toughest one yet.

    Had to give it up for Phantasm though...

    Easy: The Brood! Oh, how I'd love to see that on DVD. The Australian video release was butchered by the censors.:(

    Believe it or not, but I love "The Amityville Horror". I can't help it, it's an old favorite. Please forgive me. "The Legacy" and "Prophecy" were good too.

    Phantasm, easily. I still consider Alien a Sci-Fi movie.

    This was the hardest one yet... quite a few that could have gotten my vote. Finally it fell on ZOMBIE... Great Zombies and great Zoundtrack...

    Alien, although there are a lot of movies up there worthy of my vote. Still. None of them are quite as awesome as Alien.
