    Even sans Carpenter's The Thing, a very impressive top ten, IMO.

    Since it was a foregone conclusion that DAWN would win, the interesting part was seeing how the other films did. I was glad TCM wound up making a good showing, though not quite good enough for second. Also glad that enough people agreed with me about NOTLD to give it sixth.

    I'm just happy to see my favourite (Black Chrsitmas) made it to the final and ended up doing fairly well.

    I agree, not seeing "The Thing" here was a bit of a surprise. Evil Dead 2 is a rotten horror film (as a horror themed comedy it fares better), and yeah, I don't really think of Jaws as a horror film.

    --Frankenstein - Thought it would cruise to the finals in a presumably weaker Classic pool--

    Why would you presume that?

    Still, overall it was a strong list, with only a few that shouldn't have been there, imo.

    Not necessarily saying the films themselves are weaker. Although only 2 “classic” films cracked the top ten and they were both from the 60’s. I think though that has more to do with the fact that allot of horror fans on these boards haven’t seen or can appreciate many of the older films and the poor number of votes the older decades received I would say back up that theory. Frankenstein being one of the more popular films of the Classic era and being one of the few classic films that most modern horror fans would most likely have seen, not to mention in my Opinion being one of the better films of any era. Taking all those factors into account I would therefore call the “classic” films underdogs in these polls.
