    I've only seen The Bad Seed (an improvement for me over the last 2 lists, but... wow: this decade was a little preoccupied) and I wouldn't call it a horror film. It's one of those plays-on-film that feels like a play.

    I'm surprised Godzilla, King of the Monsters (1956) merits a separate IMDB entry since it's nothing more than a bastardization of Gojira (1954).

    Another poll with a lot of good titles. I would have voted for X-The Unknown had it made the list.

    Hah, no one has voted for the Giant Claw. That film fascinated me when I was young as I couldn't believe how ridiculous the creature looked.
