Which ones yours........
i chose Ruggero Deodato
I have to go with Carpenter, he was the first director I ever identified with!
That's a tough one. There are quite a few directors that I like. But I picked Fulci because he has shown himself to be a skilled director in a wide variety of genres: horror, western, giallo, sci-fi, gangster, comedy, sword & sorcery, etc... He has made some great films, but his bad films - boy do they stink!
That's a tough one for me, but I think it'd be Carpenter, since he's the first one I remember watching and enjoying, and still do for the most part, even though he's lost a lot of his edge. Romero's a close second. I love Argento, but I only really discovered him in the last few years.
I went with Raimi because I like almost all of his movies. Also, he injects humour into them with some goofy one-liners and stunts.
You forgot to add Peter Jackson!:evil:
I know... I was thinking if I should or Should'ent.
Lucio Fulci, enough said.
Argento. So many masterpieces in his filmographie.
By the way, I'm glad you didn't include Hooper.
Yea, I was trying to get people that have done lots of classic movies.
I'm glad somebody said it, his catalog has gone down the crapper. Only two good flicks IMO, and a few mediocre ones, and some downright awful ones.
My two favorite directors of all time are John Carpenter and David Cronenberg. I voted Carpenter, and I must mention that you didn't include Cronenberg!!!!
Hello?? David Cronenberg???
He's my favorite, so I voted for "others".
Gotta go with JC. The guy has an unbelievable amount of classics under his belt. He's shown time and time again that he is a horror GENIUS. He was also nice enough to pose for a picture with me and give me his autograph. MY LIFES DEFINING MOMENT!
I went with Dario Argento i guess im just a sucker for stylish gothic horror!
I would have gone for Takeshi Miike but i wouldnt really rate him as a classic horror director. Ive loved all of his movies though...he seems unstoppable in his genious.
No contest for me here, I had to go with the great John Carpenter. Although as I watch more Fulci films I am starting to find myself respecting his work more and more.
My pick: Mario Bava
Of folks I would pick from the list, George A. Romero and Alfred Hitchcock at the top of my list, and Brian DePalma for the best representative of the bottom of my list.
There should be a poll for 'most over-rated directors.' DePalma would be my first pick. Although, there is a handful of guys like DePalma who have a following and make mindless films.
John Carpenter because David Cronenberg wasn't on the list (I hate voting "others")
George A Romero. I can't say enough about how this man's films have moved me in the past. Cronenberg and Argento are tied for second with Fulci and Carpenter sharing third.
