    It came down to Romero and Evil Dead. The Romero trilogy won out.

    Guess the Dead Trilogy, don't like the third one but the first two more than make up for it. Course, the main reason is just that I don't like most of the others listed at all.
    [Never liked EVIL DEAD much...]

    I guess I'd pick ROTLD for second...love the first, hate the second, thought the third was okay.

    In terms of which movies I watch the most, it would be the Slumber Party Massacre trilogy. However, many of the films listed are among my favorites, and it's really hard to choose.

    Ginger Snaps. I loved all three films.

    followed by Evil Dead and Sleepaway Camp. I might've given Romero some love but I really don't like Day.

    If it comes down to liking all three films, I'd probably have to go with Sleepaway Camp, because I always have fun with those. But none of them I like as much as NIGHT and DAWN, or the first ROTLD.

    While I'm fond of many of them,Romero's trilogy has the edge,I hope the new film is a worthy companion to them !

    Man oh man. First off, I want to thank maskull for the Ginger Snaps love, for I have grown to love that series more and more as I look back at how they took chances on each installment.

    As with most people here, it ultimately came down to Romero and Raimi for me...and I have to go with The Evil Dead trilogy because, like the Ginger Snaps trilogy, each successive film kept the same theme, but also had its own distinct style, which kept things fresh. :)

    Romero's trilogy suffered from Day. I need more than special effects to keep me involved in the story and, in the case of Day of the Dead, I just couldn't care any less about the characters and their situation. Bored me to tears.

    I had to go with Evil Dead, but Romero's Dead and Craven's Scream trilogy share the second place, RotlD gets the third.

    Had to go with Romero's dead trilogy. I love Evil Dead almost as much, but I'm such a gorehound that I had to go with the best zombie trilogy ever.

    Evil Dead.

    Romero's trilogy is excellent and contains the finer films out of the two series, but ED has Bruce Campbell and time-traveling and some of my favorite movie quotes.

    "We just chopped up our girlfriend...does that sound...fine to you?"

    Ginger Snaps? The first one is damn good and very funny. But the other two? I found them very disappointing.

    And thank you for that...I always hated that "animal trilogy" tag as it's a real stretch.

    However, where the hell is Phantasm, and why I am I the first to mention it??

    Phantasm has the same director and mostly the same actors all the way through. Although, even if it were to be included, I'd still have voted for Romero's Dead, as to me it's the best "true" trilogy listed. By "true" trilogy, I mean a series that has a beginning, middle, and an end, and encompasses a single concept. Not sure if a fourth Dead film is even needed, though you can bet I'll be seeing it.

    Kind of a hard choice for me as I am a very big fan of Romero's Dead trilogy and the Evil Dead trilogy. Had to go with Evil Dead trilogy although the other is very close behind it.
     
  15. I have a tie with Romero's Dead and Poltergeist, those are both my favorite. There were a few others I love on this poll so it was a hard decision.

    Basket Case- these films are okay, but nothing special. Henenlotter did much better when it came to Aylmer.

    The Omen- I love all three films, but the third, despite having Sam Neill, is a little weaker than I had hoped.

    Slumber Party Massacre- love the first two, especially the weird as hell second film. The third one is a total bore though.

    Sleepaway Camp- I love the first film, and while I enjoy the sequels, they can't compete with the first.

    Scream- could care less about any of these.

    Romero's Dead trilogy- three solid classics, and a great end to the trilogy with Day, the best of the three films.

    Ringu- the original is wonderful, while the sequels are just decent.

    ROTLD- the first and third films are excellent, the second sucks ass.

    Poltergeist- don't care for any of them.

    Maniac Cop- the first two are pretty good. Never saw the third.

    It's Alive- all three films are good, but not great.

    Ginger Snaps- three marvelous films. As good as the sequels are though, they can't touch the first.

    Evil Dead- all excellent films, and I think they retain the same amount of quality from the original film to the last.

    Thus, Evil Dead gets my vote for being the most consistent in quality. The Dead trilogy would be a close second.

    Well, I never included PHANTASM because there is a forth, as much as many would like to forget OblIVion.

    Well, you included Omen and there is a fourth, as much as many would love to forget The Awakening!

    And actually, I'd rather forget the third Phantasm over OblIVion even with all of it's stock footage.
