    Red - Advanced to the next round.
    Blue - Eliminated from the tournament.
    * - Advanced tied with another person into the next round.

    I realize this list doesn't include everyone's favorite performances, but in order to make this tournament work, the list had to be trimmed. I tried to cover as many films as possible, and many of these picks are based on your input, so no whining! :D

    The tournament works as follows:

    I will be posting 4 brackets a day, consisting of two challengers. You will vote for one actor out of each bracket. You must have seen both performances in a bracket in order to vote. The brackets will be posted for 24 hours until they are closed and the new ones posted. In the event of a tie, I will keep that bracket open until someone can break it. If nobody can break it, then I will use a coin toss to determine the winner. All matches will be picked at random in order to avoid a bias of any kind. The status of each performance will be updated in this post after each bracket comes to a close for those who wish to keep track.

    Enough with the mumbo jumbo, let's get down to business! The first four brackets of the tournament will be posted momentarily.

    Remember:

    Vote for the quality of the performance, not just for the quality of the film.

    Catriona MacColl as “Liza Merril” in THE BEYOND- I love Dee, but CRITTERS is far from her best performance.

    Eihi Shiina as “Asami Yamazaki” in AUDITION- She was one of my noms because she is simply spectacular in this film, and that's putting it lightly! I also didn't think Barbara was that great in DUCKLING.

    Judith O’Dea as “Barbara” in NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968)- This was a really tough one, so I flipped a coin.

    Marilyn Burns as “Sally Hardesty” in THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE- Kate is outstanding in HC, but Marilyn is perfect in TCM.

    Wow, this is great guys and girls, I hope this kind of turnout continues for the rest of the tournament!

    I will be updating the list late tonight and will continue to update it once a night as I have done with the other polls. Should be good fun!

    Any predictions on who you think will take home the title once this tournament is all said and done?

    Definitely Jamie Lee Curtis. She may not be my favorite horror actress, but she will probably win because of the majority of horror fans who think she is the ultimate scream queen. Of course, it wouldn't hurt if she did win, since I admit I like her too! :)
