    I love Skullduggery. Hopefully someday it'll get a decent DVD/Blu-ray release.

    If there are any good / fun ones there, I've missed out on seeing them.

    Scalps for me! The scalping scene is incredibly realistic and the rest of the movie is incredibly bad, but in a good fun kind of way.

    I use to love frightmare. still do. knew every line. me and my friend use to really like the whole mind power aspect. plus. Jeffrey combs first movie. I met Jeffrey and he told me they filmed it in 1981 in this old house where murders were commited.. The same house was also used in a 1982 movie called slapstick of another kind.. a woman did all the special make up effects for frightmare.. With the low budget they had they had to use some of the same bodies twice.. Also known as the horror star..

    Jaws 3-D, no contest for me! Craptastic flick which actually had the most realistic looking of all the Bruces (aside from the horrible blue-screen shots).

    Jaws 3-D is my favorite. I also like The Final Terror & The Devonsville Terror.

    The Black Room is actually a really good film, another one that needs a proper release.

    I love this movie. It's the reason that I developed a fear of being cremated alive.

    Quite a few I'd pick here. American Nightmare is a very good movie, but it's not a fun movie to just plop in and watch. That honor would go to Mausoleum. Bobbie Bresee plays the role with a kind of seductive hamminess fit for a Latino soap opera. Buechler's effects and the evocative locations also really help make it such fun schlock.

    I almost went with Frightmare, but I have to give the slight edge to Spasms. The bladder transformation scenes after the snakebites make The Beast Within look tame!! I would LOVE to see this one get into the hands of Scream Factory.

    Mausoleum for me. I remember having a lot of fun with this film, and it just becomes craziness at the end. Almost feels like a completely different film.

    Final Terror I've seen so many more times over the rest it's the clear winner.
