    I have received a few requests to take our best of each decade polls a step futher to find out what we think is the best of all time. I have contemplated how I’m going to do this so I have decided to do a round robin format two decades at a time ten from each decade (I will group the 40’s 30’s and 20’s into the final group) starting from a quarter final and working my way down to a final. Each Round will last a week There will be no option for “Other”. In this 90's 2000's Poll.

    The films were chosen from the top ten of the previous best of each decade poll.

    Love the idea, but there are so many films missing!

    Misery? Interview with the Vampire?

    and ywo of my personal favorites: In Dreams, The Mothman Prophecies - they're certainly some of my favorites from this time period ...

    I'm picking Scream of the films above. I'm not sure if I think it's the best film on that list, but certainly it's the most influencial of the lot and will still be remembered in the years to come. Don't really think a lot of people will be talking about Dog Soldiers, Shaun of the Dead or Frailty in a few years, good as they may be.

    I voted for Scream.
     
  7. Scream, for practically bringing the genre back from the dead and for being a very unique film during this time in the decade. Plus since its been ripped off so much, it obviously inspired many a filmaker to try to cash-in on the idea!

    Though Craven & Williamson hit rock bottom with Cursed.

    I had to go with Audition, that film is...wow! I believe we are in the era of Japanese horror and Audition is one of the/if not the best Japanese horror films out there.

    So far Scream is doing allot better then it did in the best of the 90's poll and Shaun of the Dead isn't.

    I personaly think Scream caused more hard then good to the genre.

    Army of Darkness, although my actual vote would have been to Evil Dead 2, if given the chance. Haute Tension and A Tale of 2 Sisters are also worthy.

    You have a chance to vote on Evil Dead 2. It's called the 70's and 80's.

    It was a tough choice between Candyman (I especially love the soundtrack), Audition and A Tale of Two Sisters, but yeah, the latter won out.
