    THE SHINING
    THE FOG
    ALLIGATOR
    THE CHANGELING
    HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP

    I've actually seen 15 of the titles from this list as well. I didn't vote for a favorite as several of them hold fond memories for me.

    The Fog! Or any number of those really. Like many of you stated, it was a great year for horror films. For film in general actually. I remember someone calling it the last year of the 70's. Anyway, I voted for The Fog.

    How did you know? Is there some telltale button I missed? :p

    Actually, yes, I voted for Cannibal Holocaust. I may find The Fog, City of the Living Dead, and the slasher titles more innocently enjoyable, but in spite of (or maybe because of) the objectionable content, it's perhaps the movie on the list with the most powerful statement. One thing's for sure, it's a movie that I won't mention in conversation with just about anyone, and when I do, I feel I need to justify owning it.

    D'oh! Didn't realise I could just click on the number of votes of a given movie and read who voted for it. My perplexed appreciation of Cannibal Holocaust has been outed!

    Some of those awesome movies were actually released in territories years after their production. Maybe we can vote again (Gates of Hell/City of the Living Dead ;)) in a few years.

    I hate to betray Jason, but you can't pick anything but The Shining.

    Man, too many to choose from that I own. Friday the 13th is what I choose.

    It's tough not to choose Friday the 13th. I still haven't seen a lot of movies on that list too. But I picked Friday the 13th just because the series is my favorite and without the original there wouldn't be any sequels.

    It was between Friday the 13th and The Fog on this one. And, on re-watch, I am sick to death of The Fog not getting the credit it deserves!!! It's a goddamn masterpiece, easily Carpenter's 2nd best horror film (I will hear no argument).

    I need to watch The Fog again. I've only seen it once and I was kind of tired when I watched it. I think I was reminded too much of the really bad remake.
