    So I've been experimenting with IMDb ratings again (I know, they suck) with the main focus on lower rated "horror" titles. The cut-off line was 4.9/10.
    Remember, these polls are just for fun and shouldn't be taken sooo seriously.

    Feature Films tagged "Horror" / most vote counts / not rated higher than 4.9/10

    Without Warning is in my top 5 of all time so I chose that one. I never get tired of The Boogeyman - that one I can watch over and over. I can't call them guilty pleasures though since I wear their love on my sleeve ;).
    There are some great cable TV memories with Beyond Evil, The Hearse and He Knows You're Alone.
    Blood Beach was always a disappointment but I've grown to love it for what it is.

    From that list, I went with Christmas Evil, but I don't feel even remotely guilty about it.

    The Boogey Man definitely has its share of bad but, overall, I'd say it was a pretty decent film.

    Blood Beach is my favorite. I also really like Christmas Evil, Death Ship, Without Warning, and The Hearse.

    Night of the Demon all the way. Followed closely by The Boogeyman.

    How is it possible for a 1980 poll to come out and not include Maniac? Boo.

    Maniac is too highly regarded for this poll's criteria. It's got a 6.5 rating on imdb.com.

    Tough one this. I went for Boogey Man as I feel it is a pretty good movie and one which I frequently revisit but I do also like Hell Of The Living Dead, Night Of The Demon and believe it or not The Devil Hunter.

    Christmas Evil, but there is no guilt on my part for liking it. And Don't Answer The Phone! is great exploitation trash.

    Where is the "All of the above" vote? Went with Night of the Demon. Every movie should have a sasquatch ripping off a guy's dick while he takes a piss.

    Christmas Evil for me. Surprised it's rated so low as I think it's a fantastic flick, and one of the few Christmas slashers that actually has something to say.
