    I personally wouldn't have much of an issue with these films cracking the top 100. Ginger Snaps 2 may be stretch though.

    68.) Ginger Snaps (2000)
    26.) Dog Soldiers (2002)
    70.) Shaun of the Dead (2004)
    34.) Haute Tension (2003)
    50.) Ravenous (1999)

    There are few films on the list I would drop before dropping them. Overall I think the list is looking pretty good though. We do need more pre 70's and a few more post 80's though.

    Hmm I guess after a quick look I would drop.

    10) Prince of Darkness (1987)
    24.) April Fool's Day (1986)
    33.) Sleepaway Camp (1983)
    36.) Hell Night (1981)
    49.) Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed (2004)
    64.) Deadly Blessing (1981)
    74.) Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things (1972)

    Not that I don't enjoy and even own most of these. I have more then 700 horror films in my collection and I enjoy them all. there just isn't room to put them all in the top 100.

    And I've never seen 55.) I Drink Your Blood (1970) so I can't say.

    If I had to "only" pick two, I myself would probably replace Prince of Darkness with Legend of Hell House, but I definitely feel that both movies deserve to be on the top 100. I simply chose the first two movies off the top of my head (Phantasm and POD) that I could watch anytime, anywhere and that weren't already voted for. Rationally, I ultimately wouldn't put it in the Top 50, but probably in the top 75.

    Other than POD I agree with Ash over what doesn't deserve to make the list, plus I'd add:

    Maniac
    Ghost Actress
    Haute Tension
    The Hills Have Eyes 2005

    and replace them with:

    Legend of Hell House
    The Wolf Man
    Creature From the Black Lagoon
    Dracula, Prince of Darkness

    Well I agree Ginger Snaps 2 wouldn't make my list. Ravenous is border line I guess, there is a good possibility it wouldn't make it if I really gave it some thought.

    Come on people we only need 9 more voters.

    I appreciate all type of horror except for maybe Troma films. Is it anything like Two Thousand Maniacs? I love that kind of stuff and the 70's is my favourite decade by far.

    You can check out my collection below, it pretty much shows what I'm into.
