    Non-horror all those stupid Ski-School, Out Cold, Snowboard Academy type films.


    Horror: The Shining. Just no contest.

    The Thing takes number one.

    I remember reading that Ravenous, which I like quite a bit, was supposed to be set in snowed in conditions but the snow, un-characteristically for the area, didn't show up. It was a struggle to find even the little bit of snow they did shoot.

    I went with Cold Prey, with The Shining, Ghost Story, and The Brood being serious comtenders. I didn't even stop to consider The Thing, which would have been my pick - I guess I never though of it as a winter themed horror (as in "it's the South Pole, isn't it always winter there, more or less?"). But I never I realised how many awesome winter horrors there actually are - Curtains and The Changeling as well.

    The Last Winter would be my choice despite no poll option.

    Black Christmas is always a good classic.


    Not sure when it's coming out, but I hear great things about Hostel 3.

    The Capture Of Bigfoot hands down, how could any film compare with an albino Bigfoot being chased by a drunken Jackie Gleason lookalike while the local sheriff does Humphrey Bogart impressions in the mirror. Add to this the great folky theme song-'You'll only find freedom the day that you diiiiieeeeee!!'.
    A timeless winter classic, fun for the whole family.

    I remember hearing this also, it must've been mentioned on the commentary or making of on the dvd, as I don't recall anything else telling me info about Ravenous.

    So last night I re-visited Shredder (first viewing since my first view ever in 2006) and today would probably vote for it. I didn't remember it being that fun, but had a huge blast with it last night. Somewhat silly but just non-stop fun with some characters you just want to die (I'm looking at you Kimberly, slut!) Slashers are always more fun when some characters need to die, then finally do.:evil: Still slightly annoyed Kimberly can be naked half the movie yet we never see anything we couldn't on braodcast TV, nice panty ass though.:)
