    Wait, I'm the only one who voted for CRITTERS 2? Bow down to Mick Garris! Bow down to the alien who turns into a Playboy plamate! You will respect the Critter in the deep fry vat! Three words: GIANT. CRITTER. BALL. There can be no other!

    Critters 2
    Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood
    Child's Play
    Halloween 4
    A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 (this one has taken its time, but Harlin's manic energy has grown on me over the years. Dog piss resurrection ftw)

    Thanks brotha. Waxwork just missed on my list. I hadn't seen it until last year so it lacks that nostalgic bump that the others have, but awesomely inventive and the sequel is just as good!

    Agreed! for my money, 4 gets better each time I see it (while 3 tends to get worse).

    I was surprised there wasn't more votes for Waxwork as that movie seems to get a lot of love on this board but I guess it did have some stiff competition.

    Very hard year to rank. I don't see most of my choices mentioned here anywhere. And I feel like Rabid Grannies can't make my top 5 because it exists primarily in either a version with butchered gore or butchered characters and story. So, hey-ho...

    1. Killer Klowns from Outer Space
    2. Dead Dudes in the House (aka- House on Tombstone Hill)
    3. The Lair of the White Worm
    4. Brain Damage
    5. Lady in White


    Bottom 5
    1. Ghosthouse
    2. Night of the Demons
    3. Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers
    4. Not of This Earth
    5. The Rejuvenator
