    Wow...favorite Italian horror film?! I don't even think I can narrow that down to a list of 10!

    Bava, Argento, Fulci, D'Amato, Franco...how in the hell am I suppose to pick one film from the likes of those directors? Fuck it I won't!...I refuse to!

    But for the sake of the contest, I'll go with Stagefright. I love the direction Michele Soavi takes with this one. It starts off as a seemingly cheesy dance film, and then half way through it takes a total 180 and turns into this sort of gorgeous art house slasher flick. Just the imagery Soavi creates is downright stunning at times. I mean a killer wearing a giant owl head? How in the hell does he make that work? But he does.

    That accompanied with an incredibly elegant and tranquil score by Simon Boswell...

    And the ending to Stagefright is probably one of the most beautiful endings in Italian horror history ... I think Soavi really gives the likes of Argento and Bava a run for their money with this one. Great flick.

    City of the Living Dead. The Beyond is a close second.

    The lack of DVDs disturbs me.

    Always thought Twitch of the Death Nerve was a cool title.

    I really like "You're Vice is a Locked Room and Only I have the Key" but considering it was in the contest rules itself, I will have to choose "A Lizard in a Woman's Skin".

    I'll say Pieces (assuming it's European). That movie is so much fun to watch.

    The last 20 minutes of Torso is brilliant. Gotta love a movie with that title too!

    The New York Ripper - I don't know if the film's reputation is intertwined with the title itself for me, but it just strikes me as so seedy - perhaps because it evokes Jack the Ripper, murderer of prostitutes, within the context of the neonlit Big Apple. It was marketed as Blodig voldtægt in Denmark, which translates into 'bloody rape'.

    Awesome prizes for this competition, by the way!

    Edit: Opps! Misread!

    Favorite title?....The House with Laughing Windows.

    Just because it sounds so ridiculous.

    Cat in the Brain.

    The DVD artwork is just as cool as the name.

    I was about to say Zombi 2, again, when I read another post and went, "DUH!"
