    I love every movie on the list, but went with Hell Night...which I think is the most atmospheric...and has at least one or two genuine scares that still hold up well today.

    Prom Night for me. The Prowler is a disappointment in many ways; the kills and atmosphere are great, but the execution (no pun intended) leaves a lot to be desired. Simply put, it's dull. Which is sad because it has the best special effects of any slasher film (or possibly ANY horror film).

    Tonight, I voted for Hell Night.......tomorrow, I could very well be angry that I didn't vote for The Prowler......both are two of my all time faves

    From this list I'd go with THE PROWLER,an underrated gem.I'm wondering,though,if BLACK CHRISTMAS might not qualify .While it mostly takes place at a sorority house,it is set around a college campus(and certainly none of THE PROWLER took place at the school).I guess you could argue the "slasher" label,but people are stabbed in it(among other things).It's a hugely influential film in this genre.What do you guys think ?

    Hell Night? Is there even a school in that movie? Wasn't Blair like 47 when she starred in it?

    Pledge Night and Rush Week, even Slumber Party Massacre at least partially took place on a campus.

    Once again, rhett shows his limitations by not including My Best Friend is a Vampire. That is the most glaring omission.

    I gotta go with The Prowler on this one. Man, I love this flick. One of the five greatest slashers ever made.
     
  9. Sorry, but I'm the Sorority House Massacre lover. Would have picked The Prowler but Sorority just holds too fond a place in my heart. Also I wish there was a Slumber Party Massacre option (it started at school)....that would get my vote every time. :evil:

    I would have to go with Prom Night also. The Prowler had some good kills but just didn't do anything for me. Hell Night would be a close second, of course I am biased though as I love Blair so much.

    House On Sorority Row rocks. Major kudos to The Prowler too.

    I went with The Prowler too, which was a "blind buy" for me at the time and I've never regretted it.
