    David Hemmings as "Marcus Daly" in DEEP RED, only film I've seen the guy in, but it was a damn fine performance.

    Round 1, Bracket 30

    David Hess as "Krugg" in THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, he looked the part and was the best actor in that whole movie, whenever a rape or something happens, Krug still pops in my head.

    Round 1, Bracket 31

    Kevin Spacey as "John Doe" in SE7EN, it just fucking creeped me out.

    Round 1, Bracket 32

    Griffin Dunne as "Jack Goodman" in AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, his performance was very enjoyable and i guess i just got a thing for the under-dogs.

    Maybe I'm the only one, but I thought Hemmings just phoned in that performance in DEEP RED. No real emotional arc or even interest to his character at all.

    I've always been a big fan of the massively underrated Ben Johnson. He was great in movies like TERROR TRAIN, THE LAST PICTURE SHOW and THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN.

    Abstain. Stupid TERROR TRAIN...


    Round 1, Bracket 30

    David Hess as "Krugg" in THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT

    If it was Saxon for CANNIBAL APOCALYPSE, it may be a different story.


    Round 1, Bracket 31

    Abstain. Have had SE7EN for over a year but still haven't watched it.


    Round 1, Bracket 32

    Abstain. Fucking CAPE FEAR. This is pissing me off, I can't vote in anything.

    C'mon Andy, get on the ball! ;) :D TERROR TRAIN, CAPE FEAR and SE7EN are all great horror films! Ah well, no worries, it is always toughest to vote in the first round, then come the second round most of the riff raff is eliminated. :)

    My Votes:
    Ben Johnson
    David Hess
    Roy Scheider
    Robert De Niro

    Character actor extrodinaire Ben Johnson gets booted from the train as David Hemmings pulls a deep, red, victory 7-2. David Hess cleans house in the battle of the Craven stars, beating Saxon 8-4. Roy Scheider becomes shark bate as he narrowly loses to Kevin Spacey 5-6. In a shocker, the legend that is Robert De Niro ALMOST loses to Griffin Dunne. De Niro managed to squeeze through, cigar and all, with a 6-5 win.

    HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERE'S.....more brackets!

    Donald Sutherland as "John Baxter" in DON'T LOOK NOW

    Being a huge AC fan, this was difficult, but when rating the actual performances, the winner's pretty obvious. (And I actually hated 'Don't Look Now' which makes it even more painful).

    Round 1, Bracket 34
    Donald Pleasence as "Dr. Sam Loomis" in the HALLOWEEN films

    Another hard one, being a Brad Dourif fan, but again I wouldn't be able to go to bed at night had I not picked DP.

    Round 1, Bracket 35
    John Amplas as "Martin" in MARTIN

    Damn, another hard one! I think I actually said Combs/Herbert West was one of my 3 fave performances in another thread. I guess this make me a big fat hypocrite, but I gotta go for Amplas.


    Round 1, Bracket 36
    Gunnar Hansen as "Leatherface" in THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE

    Finally, an easy one!! :D

    Donald Sutherland as "John Baxter" in DON'T LOOK NOW (seriously, Alice Cooper? It was a bit part, nothing more!)

    Donald Pleasence as "Dr. Sam Loomis" in the HALLOWEEN films

    Jeffrey Combs as "Dr. Herbert West" in the RE-ANIMATOR films (No matter how cool Martin was, Jeffry Combs takes it on this one)

    Gunnar Hansen as "Leatherface" in THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (technically, its "Chainsaw" not "Leatherface" but I'll let it slide)
