Haha Helly where do you come up with these?! Great poll.

This was a toughie for me, but in the end I went with The Shining, with Angie's demise in Dressed to Kill a very close second.

Too lazy to use the stairs? :p I will have to go with DRESSED TO KILL.......that scene is still difficult to watch!

I chose "Body Double" because I love that movie. I bet we'll see a SE soon !. I also think Charles Martin Smith's elevator ride in "The Untouchables" is tough to watch every time, because you know what's coming. -What is it with De Palma and elevators, anyway ?!. Arnie's mall scene in "Commando" is also fun, "Poltergeist 3", Pete Walker's "The Comeback", Bronson kicking the baddie out the lift in "Assassination", and the Aerosmith video, of course ! :D.

Damian:Omen 2...this one immediately sprung to mind!

I chose Hollow Man.

where do you come up with these?!

Got the idea after listening to this: Elevator Music: Green Day - Basket Case (http://users.interlinks.net/crozel/elevmus.html) :(

Haha that is hilarious, who on earth would ever desecrate a classic like that? Although I don't know why you'd be listening to elevator music, (a hidden fetish perhaps? :D ) at least you have good taste! :)

Had to vote for "other", due to the omission of Deep Red

As much as I love Angie Dickensons death, the elevator fall in Cat O' Nine Tails definitely gets my vote (meaning I voted "other"). That was one kick ass ending.

Gotta go with Dressed To Kill. The elevator scene is fuckin' brutal, especially in the unrated version. The Shining's elevator bloodbath scene is a classic. I like how Kubrick used it for the trailer. Very effective.

mmmmmmm elevator music... I listen to it everyday at work and can't get enough!;)

Ah another elevator music freak. :D
I also voted for "Dressed To Kill". Classic stuff.

I would say 'Dawn of the Dead', then probably 'Day of the Dead'

I voted House On Haunted Hill as it was a good "sike out" when I 1st saw the movie! It also played on the fears of dem chords simply breaking & plunging to your death & U not being able to do sh*t about it but dIe!!

Great poll Hellbilly! U're absent for a while & then U come back with a "flava" poll!

03-19-2002, 02:22 PM
Hey Peter, I wasn't really absent. I check the forums each day though. Thanks for diggin' my new poll. :D

I voted for FDtD2, the elevator scene is the best part of the movie.
