Where do U get these poll ideas? Another groovy, "I never would've thought of that" poll!!! Good job!

I had to vote for the all-time classic, the scene that drove many to sponge baths in the early 60s....Janet Leigh gettin' slashed in the shower! from Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho!

The most amazing shower sequence has to be from Luther the Geek, I didn't like that movie too well, but damn that sequence alone is worth watching once in a while. I think its that chick from Seaquest, I forget. Whoever it was, that scene rocks, the only reason why I still own it.

Why? Is it some kinda crazy sex scene or something?

No, its just one of the sexiest scenes I've ever seen for some reason.

Great poll!

Er, you know what I mean.

I voted for other. Pick one:

The pitchfork scene in the Prowler - one of the meaner ones I've seen.

Shannon Elizabeth getting attacked by Jack Frost - one of the stranger ones I've seen.

I really think the opening of Carrie is brilliant and wonderfully shot, so I picked that. The most professional and artistic shower scene ever shot on celluloid if you ask me!

Good one Ace, The Prowler shower scene is aweome, a definite favorite too!

Once again, fine poll!

thanks, Ace. i must admit that i've never seen Jack Frost , even though Elizabeth Shannon is in it. The Prowler seemed to long too remember, but now that you mentioned the pitchfork, damn, the memory is coming back! yeah, that was one great shower scene, and very brutal also. thanks for reminding!

Carrie's opening shower sequence is truly a masterpiece. de Palma did some great work on this one...but what is it with de Palma and showers? his intro in Dressed to Kill is also a fine piece of work. and not to forget Nancy Allens hypnotic slow-mo shower scene at the end. great stuff.

I'm gonna have to go with Psycho on this one. Although my favorite shower scene is in the Kentucky Fried Movie during the Catholic Highschool Girls in Trouble bit.

One question. WHY THE HELL IS THE PSYCHO REMAKE ON THE LIST!? This movie is pure trash! I've never seen it and I never will. No one can make PSYCHO better than HITCHCOCK!

I've seen the Psycho remake and it's horrible. Vince Vaughn can't touch Anthony Perkins. And Anne Heche is no Janet Lee. That's not really the problem though. The problem is the updating, like having Norman masturbate as he watches her shower. Stick with the original.

so what? no big deal for me. hollywood has and always will be doing remakes of classic films. in the end its up to you if you want to see it or not. i did watch the remake of Psycho ... i thought it was quiet interesting. i didnt love it-cuz it was totally pointless- but i didnt hate it either...so what the heck, i can live with it.

U hit it right on the button! the Psycho remake was totally pointless! The scenes & script were in tact, line by line (with a few added lines & a masturbating scene here & there) They should've just colorized the original & reissued it (which, in my opinion, would've been blasphemus anyhow)! Also, Vince Vaughn as Norman Bates.....I don't go this route....but he was way too good looking 4 the roll.....Norman is supposed to be a scrawny, nerdy, friendless lookin' guy that looks like he would be a mama's boy, not some "swinger" man! Just my $0.02!

Still dig the poll Hellbilly!!!

My vote went to Angie D's very talented body double.

p.s. - my wife thinks you're sexist for not including Christian Bale's shower in Am/Psych.

me? a sexist? i did include a few "male" shower scenes....your wife should check out David Naughton, The Starship Troopers Shower Scene...and of course there is still Elmer, totally naked, gliding, and enjoying himself....;)

A friend of mine said, when he saw the trailer for the remake, he said "Why?"
The audience agreed with him.

It was Stacey Hdadik or something similar. She was alos on the SUPERBOY TV series, not to mention KINDRED: THE EMBRACED.

I went with the final shower scene (Nancy Allen) in DRESSED TO KILL....one of the few scenes that have kept me from rewatching a certain film. From the soft-focus photography to those shoes......everything about that scene just gets under my skin.........

Janet Leigh in Psycho, a very easy decision I might add.

BTW, speaking of PSYCHO, one can STILL see homages being paid to that classic shower scene......like in this year's IDENTITY where Rebecca De Mornay had the shower curtain, the water, the killer........everything except the shower stall itself......... :)
