    OK....I have figured out what my tiebreaker is and my vote goes to The Howling. It was the first movie I recall seeing full frontal nudity in. :rolleyes:

    HellBilly, if that's not a mans vote, I don't know what is! :p

    I dunno if that's a mans vote JC. Christopher Stone nude? :D

    j/k ;)

    Hmmm, Elisabeth Brooks. [​IMG]
    THE SENTINEL was my first movie I recall seeing full frontal nudity in (Beverly D'Angelo!).

    I think our perverse memories may just change the whole theme of this 1980 thread.

    Good one about Christopher Stone! :D
    I was so transfixed by Elisabeth, I didn't even remember him.

    Another great year for horror! :glasses: The Shining easily wins for me however. It's the one horror film I've watched more than any other ever made. Truth be told though I sure do love at least half of that list, especially Alligator.

    Wow that was hard. With The Shining, The Changeling and Dressed to Kill being the first 3 choices, I couldn't decide which one to pick. But, I had to go with The Shining. It's still the only horror movie (along with The Changeling, ironically enough) to ever truly scare me. It's also, IMO the best horror film of the bunch. Spectacularly well-made.

    Rewatched CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD earlier this year....still creeps me out, so it has my vote. One hell of a year, for sure.

    I made this poll a couple of years ago based on IMDb info. I think they listed The Howling as 1980 first. They also had Videodrome listed as 1982 and then 1983. So it's not entirely my fault :(

    Friday the 13th - no question. Yes, there are a lot of great ones on here, but you can't dismiss the beginning of Crystal Lake.

    Too many great choices, but I went with The Fog. Humanoids, Howling, Shining, Changeling, etc.., etc.... are all great films as well.
