    Deep Red
    Lord Of Illusions
    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    The Brood

    I was thinking of the unrated directors cut when choosing "Lord Of Illusions". I think, when seen in this version, it's Barker's best film. Chances of it moving on here seem slim at this point though.

    From Dusk 'Till Dawn
    In The Mouth of Madness
    Abstain
    Carnival of Souls

    Wow, talk about some close matches! The Brood manages to pull off the largest victory with a 4-2 triumph over the forgotten gem, Carnival of Souls. John Carpenter continues his winning streak as In The Mouth of Madness advances with a slim 5-4 victory over Lord of Illusions. I have yet to see City of the Living Dead (but definitely will now!), but I was not expecting such a strong showing against The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a film which I think is in contention to win the tournament. TCM beat out CotLD by only 2 votes, with a 6-4 victory. And From Dusk 'Till Dawn pulls off the upset in another close match, narrowly beating out Argento's Deep Red with a 6-5 win. All and all a great, nail-biting matchup!

    Eraserhead and House on the Edge of the Park ended up in a 3-3 tie, but after a coin toss, Eraserhead manages to advance to the next round. The other three matchups were not nearly as intense however. Christine manages to shutout The Advocate with a 5-0. Thus far, John Carpenter seems to be the iron man of the tournament, with all of his nominated films so far advancing to the second round. Cujo is no match for Tony Todd, as Candyman slays our four-legged friend 8-4. And in no surprise, Sam Raimi's masterpiece, Evil Dead II beats the truck out of Maximum Overdrive with a 10-1 beating.
