    I almost chose Phenomena, but then I heard in my head, "Reggie the reckless", and had to pick A New Beginning.

    I nearly chose Phenomena for my 5th choice also, but then Cat's Eye sucked my breath in at the end. :eek:

    If all the stories were as good as the James Woods opener, then it would have definitely made my top 5 as well.

    I think it's more nostalgia that made me vote for it more than anything. I saw it in the theater originally...and then countless times on TV/VHS/DVD over the years.
