    It was a tie for me: BLACK CHRISTMAS vs. WHEN A STRANGER CALLS.
    I went with STRANGER since it still gives me goosebumps, taking me back to the pre-cellular, pre-caller ID days of babysitting for the neighbors. I used to freak myself out all the time! :lol:

    There's some really good ones on there, and it was hard to choose. I went with Black Christmas though.

    Kathleen Turner in Serial Mom was pretty good too. Is this the Cocksucker residence? Is this 4215 Pussy Way? :evil:

    Wow, I didn't remember phones messages in Dressed to Kill, but that is probably because I have never revisted that film since I saw it as a teenager back in the 80's: it disturbed me something serious, owns me, and I should probably get a tattoo on my booty that says: PROPERTY OF DRESSED TO KILL.

    Yeah, I am digressing a tad. Sorry about that.


    I'm going with When a Stranger Calls. That whole opening set-up has become iconic, and still holds up to this day. :nervous:

    I chose Lost Highway, but Black Christmas and When a Stranger Calls are close runners up. I also have fond memories of the Scream phonecall :)

    I came down to the calls from Black Christmas and When A Stranger Calls..I have to give a slight edge to WASC though...just a tad more disturbing.

    Damn, it's about time for a re-visit! Refresh your memory and get MGM's DVD - which is excellent btw :)

    I believe I voted for Black Christmas back when this thread was created as that is the correct answer.

    As far as I'm concerned, it's "Black Christmas" followed by "When A Stranger Calls" and then the rest. None of the others come close to the overall impact and sheer intensity delivered. Excellent poll nonetheless! ;)

    Man oh man, this poll is great. I can't even choose one. Argh.....fine, Lost Highway. More polls like this, please.

    Edit: Re-watched Black Christmas over the weekend thanks to this poll. It'd been a while and holy shit, those calls are freaky, man. Wow. Really forgot all about this movie--surprising that there isn't a real "cheesecake" factor at all in it, given that it takes place in a sorrority house (no shower scenes, no pillow fights, etc.). Really keeps things tense. Well done on the scares.

    Black Christmas easily. The best part about my favourite horror film.

    Runner ups are When A Stranger Calls and Drew in Scream, though I actually like the part when her parents pick up the phone more.

    I was stuck between voting for Black Christmas or When a Stranger Calls, but I went with Black Christmas because it is overall the better film.

    I went with the Lost Highway call. It would probably make me pass-out if it happened to me. Like when you start to doubt your own mind - that's scary stuff!

    I accidentally voted for the wrong option. Blast it! I voted "other" because I didn't read the Pet Sematary one. I actually think Gage's call was a little scarier than Nash's call in Black Christmas, but the "Moaner" calls were not scarier than "Jess, the caller is in the house. The calls are coming from the house" call. So, I would vote for Pet, if I hadn't have slipped up.
