    Since you left off DR. STRANGELOVE and DELICATESSAN, I had to vote for EATING RAOUL (From the director of DEATH RACE 2000).

    A great take-off on Hitchcock's STRANGERS ON A TRAIN.

    I voted for Ravenous because I completely loved this flick and have watched it countless times. Great cast, awesome soundtrack, nice and dark sense of humour but also with some definte horror elements.

    The others from the list that I liked a lot were:
    Serial Mom
    Drop Dead Gorgeous
    Gremlins
    Heathers
    Throw Momma From The Train
    Ravenous

    Had to go with SERIAL MOM, being a John Waters junkie and all....but HEATHERS came in a very close second. BTW, nice avatar, KR~. Is that Angela Bettis???

    I went with American Psycho.

    That was an extremely hard decision. Others not on that list: Delicatessen (as some already said), Jerry and Tom, Dr. Strangelove, Fear and Loathing, anything Wes Anderson.

    I would like to recommend Grosse Pointe Blank. Soely on the fact that no one is suprised that he is a hired killer.

    I'd say Heathers, with American Psycho a close second. I'm sure there's some others close behind if I thought about it long enough.

    Beetlejuice..beetlejuice...beetle....I liked as a black comedy.
    Also The Frighteners is a very cool black comedy.

    Had to go with American Psycho. Bateman rules. Close second and third were Serial Mom and Ravenous. Black comedies rule!

    I'm going to say Serial Mom, even if it's no longer my favorite John Waters film. The prank phone call scene is one of the funniest scenes in a movie ever.

    Beverly: "Is this the cocksucker residence?!"
    Dottie: "Goddamn you!!"
    Beverly: "Is this 4251 Pussy Way?!"
    Dottie: "You bitch!!"
    Beverly: "Now let me check the zip code-- two-one-two-fuck-you?!?!"

    :lol: :lol:

    I also like Heathers, Gremlins, and Death Becomes Her a hell of a lot.
