Other - IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS
It's suprising when you weed out the crap the decade doesn't look half as bad as i once thought.
I'll say SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, although it's probably more of a thriller. But DEAD ALIVE and ARMY OF DARKNESS are more comedies, and FROM DUSK TLL DAWN is more action. SILENCE OF THE LAMBS is just a better movie, and the ending was definitely chilling. It's just a better movie than most of the others on the list.
I love AUDITION's closing scenes but I just can't pick a movie when it's only one scene or sequence that works, especially if there's a movie like SILENCE OF THE LAMBS that has so many good performances and moments. The majority of a movie has to work for me, not just one small part of it [even if it's the ending.]
F**kin graet movie, very weird I loved it.
Definitely a much tougher list than the 2000's. I only hope the rest of the 00's can produce classics the same way the 90's did. There are a lot of films I love from that list, mainly CAPE FEAR, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN and SCREAM, but if I was forced to pick one horror movie for a 90's time capsul, I'd choose THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. An indie triumph along the same lines as HALLOWEEN, to me it was the most original and most effective horror film released since the golden age of modern horror in the early 80's. BLAIR WITCH stands up even better today against the increasing number of CGI-doctored films, proving that less can definitely be more. THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT is the a horror film that gets it right: the best horror films always have ridiculously simple stories, but they execute them in such a tight, focussed and stylish manner that it ends up a masterpiece. And that is just what THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT is.
I'd say "Scream". That movie brought life back into a seemingly dead genre. It was a very smart, very well done movie. Unfortunately it sparked the whole "teen slasher fick craze" though.
From the list I voted Jacob's Ladder, Blair Witch coming in second.
If you think Audition is a one scene movie. You may want to watch it again.
OTHER: BRAINSCAN (1994)
I voted for Ravenous. I'm not sure if it's just a great movie or if it's the soundtrack that makes it a great movie, but either way I love it! I almost voted for Stir Of Echoes because that is one of my favourite movies as well. Too bad it was over-shadowed by another similar movie that came out around the same time.
honourable metions: The Blair Witch Project,The Sixth Sense, Ringu, Se7en, Scream, and Darkman (1990)
The Stand although not really sure if it's horror.Followed by Nightof the Living Dead remake and Army of Darkness.I also liked Pet Sematary 2.
Scream -for me. Haven't seen many of the listed titles though.
Cape Fear tied with Silence of the Lambs followed by Dead Alive and Army of Darkness
If i Had to pick my 5 best films of the decade i would go with
1.The Blair Witch Project
4.The Silence of the Lambs
I went other. I thought it was a pretty dreadful decade for horror films and Troma won with Terror Firmer and Tromeo And Juliet although they are really both comedies, a few of the others on the list are also. I'd go with Scream as a very close runner up to these though and I'm not including Se7en in this poll. And Dammit, Troma deserves this title!
out of all those i voted for cemetary man since i have been watching it the most as of late. army of darkness and cape fear are close behind.

01 - Cemetery Man

Funny how it took me about 10 minutes to come up with this...ask me the 80's, 70's...hell, even the 60's, and it would have taken me A LOT longer...
It's a sad state of affairs when the most people consider a movie that's closer to being a comedy or a fantasy than horror (Army of Darkness) as being the best horror movie of the 90s. It actually says a lot.
Yep it means the other films weren't as good to them Quite simple actually.
