    yeah, you might be right. Jennifer is the hot one (circa The Getaway), and Meg the cute one.

    It was a tie between Texas 2 and Phantasm 2, but ultimately went with Texas, just because of Bill Moseley's performance as Choptop.

    FYI

    This thread didn't start out as a poll thread. When dave13 & I posted there was no poll. And rhett's initial post wasn't worded like that. Unless I'm mistaken. I think the initial idea/post was to come up with your favorite belated squeal.(that's why my comment about "23 years") I think it would have been fun to watch people remember some "way-late" sequels. Kinda like trivia or something. The poll takes away from that.

    Just my humble opinion.

    Good. At least I know I wasn't going nuts or something. :)

    Imo the other way had more thread life potential.

    When a poll gets started you have to first create the thread and then make a poll after, so there is always a slight delay in getting the list up, especially when there is one with as many submissions as this. If it's in the "Official Polls" sub-forum, then it'll have a poll, that's how it works!

    I think guessing the length between movies would have been fun too, but I'm not sure if that method would have been longer lived than this, since there isn't a whole lot more to discover.

    It's been years since I've seen Exorcist III. I don't really remember much about it but, seeing all the love it's getting, I'll have to check it out again.

    I thought the same thing a few years back. Just to offer a dissenting viewpoint, I didn't really see what the big deal was. My memory had been of a pretty dull movie, and that was what I saw the second time around. For what its worth.

    Psycho II followed closely by Phantasm II and TCM II. The rest on this list range from mediocre to just terrible.

    This wasn't always like that though? I think to remember in the old days the whole thread would appear, but only after you finished the poll as well.

    I remember liking Exorcist III very much, so I voted for that. That said, I felt tempted to vote for Mother of Tears. Was it artistically inferior to Inferno and Suspiria? Yes. Was some of the acting from the extras cringe-inducing? Absolutely. Were the CGI effects on a Xena: Warrior Princess level? Sadly, yes. Did it entertain me? It did.

    My sentiments exactly. And though it's not on the list, I would have chosen Return to Oz. I know, it's not a horror film, but goddamn did that film ever scare the bejeezus out of me as a kid!!

    Voted for Psycho II, out of the list. But I consider 4 years as being belated enough, so my vote would always go for Sorority House Massacre II and Hard to Die.

    And, then there's always Troll 2.

    Psycho II totally!!! When younger I thought it was miles away better than the original one. Now I've given the value Hitchcock's deserves and consider the sequel an excellent work in 2nd place.

    Psycho II, but Exorcist III and TCM 2 were decent too.

    I tremendously enjoy Psycho II and Phantasm II. But I went with Exorcist III. I know it's a minority opinion. But I find it much more frightening and interesting than the original. I really hope we get to see Blatty's original cut at some point. It's obvious that the released version was compromised by studio interference.

    Fans should keep an eye out for an upcoming book, "The Evolution Of William Peter Blatty's The Exorcist III: From Concept To Novel To Screen." It apparently will chronicle Blatty's ordeal with Morgan Creek in great detail.

    Okay so my question is when was basic instinct considered a horror film?
