I didn't include the Alien Anthology but you can still vote for it in the "other" option.

It would be The Stepfather (1987) for me. The Evil Dead would be a very close second. Oh, and Troll 2 of course!

Great poll, moving to the main page.

Here's a bunch of others worthy of mention:

Troll 2
Maniac
Hatchet
Frozen
Alien 2: On Earth
Humanoids from the Deep
Halloween II (2009)
Survival of the Dead
Se7en
City of the Living Dead
The Prowler
Vampyres
The Wolfman (2010)
Dr. Giggles/Otis
The Relic
The Box
Jennifer's Body
My Bloody Valentine (1981)
The Toolbox Murders
New York Ripper

If we get a lot of "others" I can edit the poll to replace some of the lesser vote getters with these.

I voted for Grindhouse. It's great to finally have the theatrical double-feature version on disc. Runner-up would be King Kong, one of my all-time faves and an undisputed classic. The only reason it didn't win for me is that it was always a certainty to be released on the format, while we had no idea if / when Grindhouse would come out.

I had to go with Nightmare On Elm Street (1984). I was blown away by how good it looked on blu-ray.

Having grown up with the Media VHS, it was like seeing the film again for the first time.

Piranha or Humanoids From The Deep for me, Too many to choose from really. Some heavy hitters in The Exorcist, NOES and The Evil Dead as well.

I haven't snagged up Cronos of Videodrome yet, so can't comment on those, but from what I've seen, it's either the Alien Anthology or Spirits of the Dead from Arrow. Both of these preserve the films the way they should be, not much fucking around with what's already perfect. I also dug Arrow's/BU's City of the Living Dead.

And I'm only mentioning this since some people consider it horror (I don't), but the OVERALL Blu release of the year is Arrow's Battle Royale SE. The thing is the holy grail thus far of Blu special editions. It's insane.

Have to go with Psycho. This iconic suspense/horror looks stunning in Blu-ray. Other horror Blu-rays I picked up this year include Grindhouse, Humanoids from the Deep, My Bloody Valentine, The Relic, The House of the Devil and The Toolbox Murders, all of which look great.

had to go with Psycho, too. Hard to vote cause i've only bought a handful of these, and from what I've read, so many of those are fantastic releases. But psycho's one of my favorite films, from my favorite director, so to have it on blu ray was probably the disc of the year for me.

Videodrome, with Psycho a close second.

No contest, since it's the first Blu-Ray I purchased, even though I currently don't have a HDTV or Blu-Ray player yet, Evil Dead. In about 7 months I will be able to afford a nice HDTV, Blu-Ray player, and a nice Surround Sound system.

Return of the Living Dead - I'm thrilled that it's out on Blu-ray. Hopefully the first two sequels won't be far behind.

Other - Se7en, followed by the Alien Anthology. Looking back, 2010 was a good year for horror on Blu-ray.

I went with House just because it was its first R1 release and they really did a great job with the transfer - and I love the movie too. Grindhouse would be my runner up- was so happy they finally released it the way I saw it at the theatre

Hard to say what is my favorite, and it depends on what to base it on.

For just "wow, that looks fucking better than I ever thought possible" would be Nightmare on Elm Street and Seven. But neither bring anything new extras-wise.

So I went other as my favorite of the year hits all the marks.

It looks better than I thought possible, after years of VHS, dark downloads and then what I thought to be a great 16X9 R2 dvd dub, none of which are close.

Plus it's stacked with new features.

Best of all, it never had any region release past VHS.

Even though it's more sci-fi than horror...


GALAXY OF TERROR!

Fucking awesome all around package

New York Ripper deserves mention, but it was released 9/29/09. That has the same wow factor as Nightmare on Elm Street, maybe even more.
Also Night of the Creeps for just existing, but that was also late 09.

Other- Humanoids from the Deep.

I'm hoping to get the Spirits of the Dead and Battle Royale discs as late Christmas presents, but I don't actually have them in my hands so I can't really vote for them. I just have my fingers crossed that they're one of the gifts I receive from my girlfriend when she returns next week.

Psycho is just an iconic masterwork and the fact that's on Blu makes me happy.Second place: The Exorcist.Having the choice of watching the superior theatrical version is great.
Happy New Year in advance from Chile!

Anyways, my vote is for Maniac with the Exorcist a close 2nd
