    How about the ridiculous Don't Open the Window title? Really hate that one.

    Deranged
    The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires

    I been dying to see Phase IV but don't know if there is a decent edition out there. Also, Sugar Hill sounds quite interesting. Other '74 movies I really like are Flesh for Frankenstein (imbd lists it as '73) and Blood for Dracula.

    Is the DVD that's out not any good? I've only seen the laserdisc myself.
    My list:

    TCM
    Black Christmas
    Captain Kronos
    Phase IV
    It's Alive

    These polls are making me want to watch a few of these again. It's been a while for some.

    Tough to consider IT'S ALIVE a 1974 movie since the release everyone remembers was much later. It still doesn't quite crack my list though:

    Deranged (Roberts Blossom OWNS this movie. Love Ormsby's handling of the narrative)
    Black Christmas (never heard of it...)
    Blood for Dracula (Wirgins!)
    The Ghost Galleon (still think the blind dead are the coolest looking zombies out there)
    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (can't recall if I've ever seen this movie?)

    Damn I missed Ghost Galleon, that would have been my fourth spot knocking Deranged out.
