Rosemary's Baby. No contest.
I was expecting this argument to surface somewhere, but the question, as i saw it, was essentially: "which one of these films is your favorite." at first it seemed like an impossible task, because they're all phenomenal (like most people, i haven't seen the harmonies one). i ended up doing a one on one elimination, and ended up with King Kong. its just perfect, and so much fun to watch. i avoid watching amazing films like the exorcist, the shining, or rosemary's baby too often because im afraid of dulling their impact. but with king kong, i could watch that any time. its just a fun, fun film.
Still no love for Diabolique? I just watched that tonight (I don't think I had seen the original all the way through before, actually - or at least I remember the remake much better). It's pretty effective - creepy and atmospheric, particularly towards the end.
Had to go with Alien, sir!
2.) The Thing
3.) The Shining
Well, we can shut the books on that debate. It's official:
very cool < just so cool
Wow, I'm a bit surprised I fell in line with the popular choice. The Thing might just be my favorite horror film.
I really can't honestly vote here, I'm leaning towards Psycho or The Exorcist but I also love Frankenstein and King Kong. The Shining, Alien and The Thing are also in my top 10 which makes this a near impossible choice for me.
I'm really surprised that Halloween didn't make their list!? Especially over Werckmeister Harmonies which I have never even heard of.
For sure, I would also think the original The Haunting would have been in the running, it's right up there with Diabolique for psychological suspense.
The Exorcist is my fave of those listed but Frankenstein and The Thing are amazing as well.
The Thing wins for me. I love the creepy atmosphere, Sci-Fi twist and gore. The Shining is a very close second though.
Just out of curiosity, how many of these do people own?
I own all but 3 - Rosemary's Baby (not a favorite, so I didn't bother); Werckmeister Harmonies (never heard of it before), Frankenstein (need to get this one, and Bride....)
I dont have King Kong or Werchmeister.
So many great films. I'm surprised Alien hasnt gotten that much attention. It was the film that broke my horror cherry and it will always hold a very very special place in my heart.
I like the way your brain works aldous.
I voted for The Thing
It's hard for me to choose between Alien, King Kong, JC's The Thing...
Hmmm... If I had to choose, it'd prolly be Alien, with the original King Kong coming in second.
Definitely The Thing!
