    DeadLantern.com is running a huge 64 film horror tournament to allow the fans to decide which is the greatest film of all time. To our knowledge, nothing like this has ever been done so we feel it will be a fun way for horror fans to get excited about some classic films and to start healthy debate.

    You can check out the tournament here

    and view the full bracket as well as descriptions and commentary on each matchup.

    Check back every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for results and new matchups.

    Help spread the word!

    thanks

    I see Psycho beat out Phantasm (I went Phantasm for no good reason). Hellraiser beat out Henry, I voted Hellraiser.

    I voted. Not that it matters much since people won't agree on what wins. I already don't agree with Psycho beating out Phantasm.
     
  7. Neither do I. This contest is bunk. And dwatts, Hallraiser over Henry....what?!

    Perhaps all the Henry and Phantasm supporters were conscientious objectors, because they certainly didn't show up to vote.

    just to make it clear, we aren't claiming that this tournament is the "be all end all" of what horror fans think is the "best" film, because obviously, this is a non-scientific poll we're conducting. It's just supposed to be fun and bring about some friendly debate and hopefully give some exposure to films like Henry that maybe a lot of people haven't seen. To call what we're doing "bunk" seem overtly harsh :)
     
  9. I didn't mean to offend you or your contest but imo all contests of this sort are "bunk". My comments were meant to be taken tongue in cheek since it's all based on personal opinion. Guess I should use more :lol:

    I love Toxie, but I don't know... Chainsaw versus mop? Melvin might be in for a long day.

    I fear for The Beyond. I voed for it, but obviously Evil Dead 2 is far more popular :cry:

    I went with "The Beyond" too...not that I really don't like "ED 2" but I hope TCM does it in. No comparison in my mind.

    I love these kinds of polls, though. I just voted for "The Shining" (love "The Howling"...it's the next best "-ing" movie) and I voted for "Dawn of the Dead", naturally. :cool:

    Damn, it won't let me vote on the Shining thing...

    Hate hate hate the Dawn and Village match up. Dawn has a good chance of going all the way due to its popularity, but I love Village. I went with it, but it's out I reckon :(

    Oh! I see Toxic Avenger and The Beyond went out. Pity about the latter, totally agree with the former.

    We've had some people saying that the poll won't allow vote. you might have to hold your mouse cursor over it for a few seconds, that seems to alleviate the problems some people are having (they are free polls, so we have to make do with what we could get). Also, feel free to e-mail us your vote to make sure it's counted if all else fails.

    And I agree with you, I love Village of the Damned far more than Dawn of the Dead. It would make me absolutely giddy to see it advance to the next round.
