    I still need to see Raw Meat. It's on my Netflix queue, and I know TCM shows it from time to time as part of their TCM Underground series.

    Don't Torture a Duckling and Baron Blood are two of my all-time favorites

    I don't want to oversell it, but I liked it quite a bit. Deliberately paced 70's British horror.

    I'll have to watch What Have You Done to Solange? again. I really can't remember it well enough to include it on the list, although I remember it being good.

    There were too many great titles released this year. I could have chosen 10.

    What Have You Done To Solange? (Been awhile with this one, but at the time it was my favorite giallo. One of the few gialli that had an emotional impact with me)
    Don't Torture a Duckling (and this would be the other. One of Fulci's most restrained and affecting films)
    Deathdream
    Tombs of the Blind Dead
    The Last House on the Left (and the road leads to nowhere...)

    Finally a year where I've seen enough to vote :)o) :

    1. Deathdream
    2. The Last House on the Left
    3. Baron Blood (my favorite Bava after Hatchet)
    4. Frogs

    5. was a struggle between Tales from the Crypt which I only saw once, as a kid, and on some TBS type channel and Tombs of the Blind Dead which was pretty good except for some exceptionally unnecessary misogyny. I went with the one I've seen within the last decade.

    I'm happy to see That Deathdream has received so many votes. I would love to see a nice quality print of this get released on blu.

    I saw that for the first time a couple years ago. I was always weary because of the PG-rating - how effective could it be? How ignorant of me. It is now one of my favorites and is a great little creeper. After loving it so, I went to try Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things - unfortunately, I wasn't as charmed by that one. :eek2: (Still love the title though)
