    Return of the Living Dead is my favorite movie, so I'll have to say that would be my favorite MGM movie.

    Awesome contest!

    I have to go with The Fog, which is not only my favourite MGM horror movie, but one of my favourite horror movies from any studio. I love almost everything John Carpeneter has put out and this one stands up there with Halloween thanks to its campfire tale feel and eerie atmosphere. The ghosts/ zombies look great, the score is one of the best, and all the actors play their parts well. And yes,Tom Atkins once again is a bad ass who beds the young girl. Can't wait to watch this one close to Halloween.

    MGM does have a lot of great horror films in their repertoire though, with Return of the Living Dead being a close second.

    Looking at the titles on my shelf it was hard to pick one and it ended up being between The Fog and The Brood.

    I'll go with Cronenberg on this one and say The Brood.

    Going with de Palma's Dressed to Kill. They did a great job with the DVD and here's hoping they will give us the HD version someday soon.

    The Return of the Living Dead

    MGM has so many great horror films. I hate choosing just one but Trash's tombstone dance is tough to beat.

    I guess we are counting what they distributed to video as well as produced and released in theaters. I know that's how it was for a few of the films listed. Considering that, my pick is Phantasm. Not only a favorite movie of mine, but MGM's old DVD and Laserdisc were excellent special editions.

    Return of the Living Dead for me. In my top 3 horror flicks of all time.

    Gotta say this a great contest. MGM has always been one of my favorite studios when it comes to genre DVD releases. Many of my favorite special editions are from them.

    I have to go with Return of the Living Dead. I re-watch that movie the most of the MGM horror movies. I was really hoping that the Blu-Ray would have at least the deleted scenes on it that I know exist.

    Return of the Living Dead, hands down. If I had to pick something else, it would be Killer Klowns from Outter Space.
