    Goodbye 80s, Hello 90s. These genre titles turn 25 this year. Lots of horror comedies though. Which one is your favorite?

    Not a very strong period for horror, the best stuff being either remakes or sequels. Ignoring those I went with Tremors. Just a good old fashioned monster movie!

    Love several of these big cheese films!

    Tremors
    Frankenhooker
    Child's Play 2
    Troll 2
    Flatliners

    Sigh. Lots of fun right there. Went with Tremors because it is the most quotable.

    Bride is listed as 1989.
    No "It" because feature films only.
    I used IMDb for selecting titles and Misery wasn't listed as horror. Oversight on my behalf, but there's always the "other" option.

    I went with Exorcist III. It was a tough choice between that and Jacob's Ladder as I think both are some of the best horror films made. Even with EIII's weak ending, it's one of those films that I spent a lot of time dissecting the style, editing, and sound. And, oh, those wonderful monologues.

    Though, there is a really loud part of my brain that wanted to go with Begotten.

    It was definitely one of the most diverse years you've assembled so far.

    Jacob's Ladder is my favorite, followed by the Night of the Living Dead remake & Exorcist III. I've always enjoyed Two Evil Eyes as well.

    Fair enough on It. I thought Bride was 1990. My mistake.

    It was between NOTLD and Frankenhooker, but I had to go with NOTLD.

    One of the best horror remakes of all time.

    Voted Other for Misery. Jacob's Ladder is good, and I don't dislike the Night of the Living Dead remake. Another notable movie for me is Baby Blood.

    I've seen 15 of the titles and went with Hardware. Saw it theatrically and twice now
    on home video.

    '90 was probably the best year for horror of the decade. Especially if you've actually seen Hardware and Argento's half of Two Evil Eyes.

    As for the sequels: I haven't seen Exorcist III yet. But Leatherface was shit and Child's Play 2 was only better by a hair. I can't remember a more pointless, nowhere movie than Texas Chainsaw Massacre III. At least The Next Generation had ideas of its own. Leatherface was just: a little heavy metal, Leatherface plays a children's computer toy, and Viggo Mortensen wears nail polish and an apron. 85 minutes of nothing. Night of the Living Dead '90 was also pretty pointless. And the ending sucked. But it was okay for, what, almost the first hour.

    I'm not voting. Because I recently saw Two Evil Eyes and liked it a lot. It's much better than Tales from the Darkside. My childhood would vote for Gremlins 2. Which is better. But, Argento is my favorite director. And I think I have to watch the film one more time to make a final decision. (Consequently- this was my favorite thing Romero did after Creepshow. Felt like a return-to-form. Like a hi-tech, ghostly, husband-killing version of "Father's Day.")

    The one I enjoy the most? Troll 2. To be honest I am not a big fan of most of the movies on this list as I know some others might be - but there are certainly a few solid ones on the list nonetheless

    Went with "Tremors" for nostalgia sake. One of the few I saw in theaters at the time. Went with a girl from college I'm still friends with. Good memories.
