    My Vote:
    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

    Well, this is the 500th post in this thread, and this post will also determine who has a one in four chance of winning. In another frustrating matchup, The Evil Dead ties 7-7 with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, forcing me to do another coin toss. After a hesitant flip...The Texas Chainsaw Massacre slices its way into the Final Four. I am pretty sure though, that most of us would have been happy if either of the films advanced.

    Because of such a tough loss for The Evil Dead, I think that everyone next matchup should include an Ash one-liner with their vote out of respect. :)



    Round Five, Bracket Two

    A Nightmare On Elm Street

    vs.

    The Thing

    The Thing.

    Why only one bracket at a time? Speed it up and finish the contest.

    Hmm

    The Thing

    All the Ash one liners that jumped to my mind have been taken, but I will go watch Army of Darkness and edit one in later. :)

    I did the one bracket thing to slow it down a bit. There are only five brackets left, so I wanted to make it a little longer so the ending wouldn't be so rushed.

    Next matchup I will do two brackets, but I've got to slow it down to one bracket a match as soon as we get into the final four.

    Hope that is better! :)

    I don't like the EVIL DEAD trilogy much, so I'm not gonna do a quote :p

    My Vote:
    The Thing

    "It's a trick...get an axe."

    John Carpenter's The Thing morphs into the Final Four as it demolishes A Nightmare On Elm Street with a 10-3 victory. I was expecting a better showing from Mr. Fred E. Krueger, but I guess the 40 year old burn victim just aint what he used to be. :)

    An ass kicking in the final rounds is tough to take, so we should all give ANOES some respect by naming our favorite murder sequence from the series in our next vote.



    Round Five, Bracket Three

    Dawn of the Dead

    vs.

    Friday the 13th



    Round Five, Bracket Four

    Halloween

    vs.

    The Shining

    Favorite Murder Sequence in A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET:

    Nancy's friend rolling on the ceiling and seeing cuts happening was cool.

    5,3 Dawn of the Dead

    5,4 Halloween

    I, like HellybillyDeluxe, nominate the bed jet of blood sequence from the first (and best) Elm Street. Original and jaw-dropping stuff.....

    Dawn of the Dead

    Halloween

    Nightmare on Elm Street 3- Freddy controlling the kid who loves puppets. It's very freaky when all the veins and sinews come out of the kid's body so that Freddy can control him. Cool stuff indeed.
