    Might as well bump up the 90's since a few of the other decades are getting updated.

    Silence receives my vote for its overall quality. Exorcist III and Audition really impressed me, too.

    Not really a fan of Blair Witch ...I've seen it twice and it never cuts the mustard for me.

    Although I think Silence of the Lambs is a much better film and I'm very glad to see it getting credit here as a horror film which I feel it definitely is, I voted for Scream. Because I think it's the most underrated film of the 1990's. Which is admittedly not the best reason to vote for it.

    I can't believe Blair Witch Project has the most votes. That movie sucks so badly it's not funny.

    I don't think I've ever heard Scream be referred to as underrated before.

    Sleepy Hollow was pretty good. Hard for me to believe that it's already 8 years old.

    It depends on what group of people you're hanging with. Some people can be really hateful against this movie. But I see your point. It is amazing though.

    I guess you can look at underrated 2 ways. A film that doesn't get talked about allot but should be or a film that is good yet gets unfairly criticized. I was thinking you meant the former. In that case I feel the same way about Blair Witch.

    It's been a few years since these polls have been bumped up. I think it would be interesting for the new members or those who's vote may have changed over time.

    Yeah, I agree. Since I'm pretty sure nowadays, Blair Witch would not be at number one. lol

    Not really a fan of this decade, but went with "Silence of the Lambs." I love revisiting this one from time to time.

    From that list: Se7en (debatable horror film, but fuck it, its on the list)

    Honorable Mentions: Army Of Darkness, From Dusk Till Dawn, Scream, The Blair Witch Project, The Silence Of The Lambs, The Ugly

    Not on the list: The Exorcist III, Wes Craven's New Nightmare

    Films I still want to see: Dead Alive, Ringu, Audition, and Jacob's Ladder.

    Tough call but going to go with From Dusk till Dawn since it was so damn much fun!

    I loved BWP, SOTL, Sixth Sense, Cemetery Man, Scream, and Ravenous too.
