    Almost impossible to choose!!! One of my favorite Argento films and the movie that scared the crap out of me as a kid (Poltergeist). But the one I've seen and enjoyed the most is George A. Romero's tremendous Creepshow

    Had to vote for F13 part 3 but Evil Dead was such a close second it wasn't funny.

    Man,this is like trying to pick your favorite child.I LOVE a lot of these movies.In a pinch I'd go with CREEPSHOW,I can still watch it anytime,and it had one of the best audience reactions of any film I ever saw.
    By the way,I had the rare chance to see FRIDAY THE 13TH PT. 3 in 3-D in the theater last night locally.I'd never seen it on the big screen before,it was a lot of fun with an audience.

    I go for Halloween III. Some of the other listed movies are great too but H3 has a high replay value for me. I never get tired of watching it even quite frequently.

    Wow, what a wonderful year that was. Many serious contenders on any other year, but Videodrome has to be it. Even above Carpenter's the Thing.

    WOW, didn't realize what a great year for films that was!! Hard choice with Evil Dead, but I am such a mark for Carpenter's Thing, I had to go with my heart on that one.

    Awesome year for horror, so many great films to pick from! Went with Carpenter's remake of The Thing. Close behind for me are Creepshow and Halloween III: Season of the Witch. Also really love Q - The Winged Serpent, Tenebre, Amityville 2: The Possession, and Poltergeist.

    Poltergeist for me. Just can't forget the first time I saw that film.

    Then again, Creepshow, The Thing and Tenebre could just as well have been choice. But they don't have a goosebumpy Jerry Goldsmith score. :)

    It was almost The Thing for me but Poltergeist has gotten many more repeat viewings and ultimately entertained me more. Talk about a great year for horror though

    "The Thing" is on this list. That's unfair to everything else on it.

    The Thing followed very closely by Evil Dead.

    The Thing and Evil Dead seem like too easy of picks so I'm going with Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3-D.

    If you actually count this as being "the year of" Videodrome and The Evil Dead, this is the greatest year in horror history. Those titles are unbelievable.

    I went with Creepshow, because it's my favorite. With The Evil Dead, Videodrome, Friday the 13th Part 3 right behind it. But MY GOD look at the other films on that list! Q the Winged Serpent, Tenebre, Poltergeist, Cat People, Basket Case, Swamp Thing... That is probably the greatest slew of horror films ever released in 1 single year. If you count VD and ED.

    Evil Dead for me. Some pretty decent stuff in that list. Really makes me miss that era of Horror...really bad actually.
