    The Thing

    Kevin Bacon's spear through the throat in the original Friday movie had me looking under the bed for days afterwards and so I'd say it's my favourite death scene of the series.

    The Jason Goes To Hell tent slice is my close second....

    My Vote:
    The Thing

    My favorite Friday kill has to be the infamous "sleeping bag" murder in Part 7. The homage in Jason X was also hilarious as well!

    Well, we really had to get our feet dirty for this matchup. Do we vote for what is arguably the best remake ever made, featuring still phenomenal makeup effects, or do we vote for perhaps the most socially relevant horror film in existance? You guys have spoken, and Dawn of the Dead is the first film to secure a spot in the final matchup by beating John Carpenter's The Thing with a very slim 7-6 victory.

    It is a shame to see my tournament hopefull go down with such a narrow loss, and for the next voting bracket let's give The Thing some lovin' by stating who your favorite character from the film was.



    Round Six, Bracket Two:

    Halloween

    vs.

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

    Well, since I had no idea this was going on, (never really went into the polls area before) I hope I'm not too late to vote on this one.

    I will say Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It really is disturbing and everytime I hear that chainsaw, my mind freaks. It really is a psychotic sound if you think about it.


    Also, my fav kills in the Jason series are in part nine where Jason elbows that guy in the chin while in the diner kitchen and the sleeping bag bit in Jason X, funnier than anything I've seen all year.

    My Vote:
    Halloween

    My favorite character from The Thing was Childs. Keith David is awesome, and his cocky persona adds some real life to the movie.

    Well, after a long and fought out battle between chainsaws and butcher knifes, Michael Myers gets the final stab, as Halloween advances with an 8-6 victory. It looked bleak for John Carpenter, as TCM started off strong with a 4-1 lead, but Halloween prevailed with a strong 7-2 finish.

    It is a faceless killer versus a horde of brain hungry shoppers for the final battle to determine the winner of being the "Best Horror Film Ever Made". I am going to keep this matchup open for a full two days in order to get the maximum amount of voters. So think it over and chalk up the last vote you'll ever make in this tournament!


    Final Round:

    Well, neither of these films are the best horror film ever made, but of the two, I choose:

    DAWN OF THE DEAD
