    Nightwing. I used to love watching that on HBO as a kid.

    The Dark. What a zany film! The first half is this slow paced murder mystery, then it goes all crazy with an alien blasting people with his eye. I remember really getting a kick out of this!

    I have no guilt for enjoying THE DARK or THE VISITOR. DON'T GO NEAR THE PARK, however, is one that I don't ever recommend to others.

    I really enjoyed Snapshot (The Day After Halloween). To call it a horror film is a stretch, but I found it strangely captivating.

    There's a few on there I love, but I have to pick The Dark. I've loved that one for a long time. I had the novelization way back when.

    Dammit! I went with The Dark, but just as I clicked the vote button, I realized that Driller Killer was on the list! (Totally would have voted for that).

    I really need to see The Visitor. The trailer on the Ms. 45 Blu had me intrigued.

    It was between Driller Killer and Big Alligator River. Voted Driller Killer because I've watched it more often...barely.
