    That's it, I don't want to vote for another. But if we are having a seperate non-horror list, then why does this list include titles like Ichi the Killer and Battle Royale?

    I've seen all of these at least twice. The top three, for me, are completely interchangeable. :fire:

    1. Oldboy... the best film of the year so far.
    2. Koma... for some strange reason not included
    3. A tale of two sisters

    The rest are to old. Most of them were included in the 2003 survey. Fresh meat is always appreciated.

    I for one have no problem listing Ichi the Killer, Battle Royale as horror films. They're not what you would call traditional horror films, but hey they have enough horror elements in them to be listed on every horror site and magazine I have ever read. People worry too much about narrowing the genre down until all there is left is zombie and slasher films. If that is what constitutes a horror film, then I’m not sure I’m even a horror fan because those are my least favorite sub genres.

    Well, considering that the significant horror elements, really, revolve around blood/violence/gore, etc. Movies like Shogun Assassin and Full Metal Yakuza easily belong on that list. It makes no sense to me at all, there are many things you can call Ichi and BR, and horror is far down the list.

    The first two are pretty interchangeable. Ranking all these amazing films is always hard.
