    ... it's the battle of, as I like to call it, Fulci's Catriona MacColl trilogy :D

    The Beyond

    I think if Zombi 2 was in there instead of HBTC then the votes would be closer.

    Sadly Catriona wasn't in Zombi 2, otherwise I would've went with that.

    Love all 3, but the annoying dub of the kid in House puts that out of the picture.
    Beyond and City both have their strong points. I've watched Beyond a couple times more although I always love City whenever I do watch it.
    The great 5.1 and amusing comm. on Beyond give it the edge. If City had a better dvd it might win my vote as this is close as can be.
    I'd love to just see all 3 with original audio options, remixed as well as AB's Beyond disc.

    The Beyond, but I love City Of The Living Dead as well. I'm not all that big of a fan of House By The Cemetery.

    I love all 3 (4 if you include Zombie) damn near equally, but I gotta go with my favorite Fulci film, House By The Cemetary... I mean, does anyone else agree this film has one of the greatest opening scenes in any horror movie ever? The incredible killings, and when that door slams shut... DAMN! And you gotta love that creepy organ music! But honestly I could pick any of them for this slot, so im just gonna go with this one. I love them all!

    My favorite Fulci film is Zombie (or Zombi 2 which ever you want to call it), then The Beyond a close second. So The Beyond gets my vote :).

    I went with "House".
    I'm a big fan of the movie and watch it at least once a year.
    Also has some great music (although not Frizzi it's still a great soundtrack!)

    Such a tough choice between House and City! City is my favorite Fulci though, and besides, gut barfing beats everything- including Bob.

    City of the Living Dead easily. I can watch it over and over. Christopher George seals the deal. To be honest I dunno why so many people hype The Beyond. Although I like it, I find it less entertaining than alot of other Fulci films.

    Tough choice between City and Beyond. I went with City in the end.

    City of the Living Dead is my favorite Fulci movie so I voted for that. I like Zombi 2 more than Beyond and House. Although House has a real creepy vibe to it. Some Fulci stuff is just awful.

    Always thought House By The Cemetary was very unique, so that gets my vote. The original promo posters for that film made a huge impression on me as a child too. Followed by The Beyond and City of the Living Dead.

    The Beyond is cinematic magic through and through. Not that there's anything wrong with the other films, but despite the plaudits, The Beyond still qualifies as an underrated movie as far too many people think it's simply a gorefest. There's a lot going on in that movie, and it wins here - it's Fulci's golden moment.

    The Beyond is one of my top favorite Fulci films.
