1983 was on "ok" year for horror flicks, not the best year but there were a few good ones.

The Dead Zone all the way. Extremely well made and well acted, this is one of my favorite flicks.

Quite a few good ones there. SLEEPAWAY CAMP gets my vote, though.

I voted for Cujo (guess that's obvious). I absolutely love this classic, and wish a DVD that is actually fucking good and in OAR would come out! 2nd place goes to Dead Zone.

Hmmmm....Which film to choose? Oh so many good films...........Oh, I remember which film to pick!....I knew I wouldn't forget! I just kept reminding myself! In fact, I tied a string around............AROUND my finger so I wouldn't forget! See? And I didn't! You never can be too careful........

It's more akin to Maximum Overdrive than pure horror but Christine is a great film to just watch and have fun with. Its not a gore fest but it does entertain me especially with "Bad To The Bone" by George Thorogood playing as the movie's theme.

LOL CODEZ.
You should have a personal pic of Aunt Martha instead of Felissa. ;)

Dead Zone gets my vote. It's the best King adaptation and a departure for Cronenberg. As always, Walken gives a fantastic performance. It's a shame that Paramount didn't go the SE route with this one. Of Unknown Origin would be my second choice.

Nah.....Desiree Gould is pretty cool, but Felissa rules.......:)

"Felissa" look like a long-haired Ben Stiller, if you ask me :p :D.

Voted for Christine too, love that flick :D.

A really, really, really bad Ben Stiller.;)

I really don't think young Felissa Rose is that ugly. You should see her now, she's a freakin babe!

I'm sure, but every time I look at that picture I think of Ben Stiller in the beginning of There's Something About Mary hiding his braces with his mouth closed :D.

Cujo

I voted for A Blade In The Dark. Dead Zone and Christine are close, however, this was a bad year.

Not a lot to pick from here. It's not one of my favourite Cronenberg movies (when the hell is 'The Brood' coming out?), but 'Dead Zone' easily gets my vote.

While this list is not as deep as 1982's, the top choices are really good. Christine gets my vote, just beating out Dead Zone and Cujo.

...Xtro.

Low budget British movie with more than its fair share of weirdness. And Maryam d'Abo!:p

Me, the only one who voted for "One Dark Night", voted for it because it holds a special place in my heart!

U know that movie that U remember just having a good time going to see? Well, that was this flick for me, not once, but twice. And since I was only 9 years old, it scared me like a muhhf*cka!

True that Peter. ONE DARK NIGHT is also a childhood fave of mine. Will we ever see it on DVD??????????????

Went with Christine. Not a lot of great movies to pick from.

Had to go with The Hunger - it gets bonus points for the Bauhaus sequence.

I think De Palma's "Scarface" is more violent than many of the horror films of '83. Anyway, my vote goes to "The Dead Zone", I still think it's Walken's best. "Psycho 2" was good too, and I even liked "Jaws 3". -Let's have those widescreen DVDs, Universal !.

Christ, another poll that I voted on and I cannot remember when or what for!!! Again, looking through the lists, I probably would've voted for Christine.

Sleepaway Camp. That goddamn ending still creeps the shit out of me everytime I watch it.

One of my childhood favorites. Jason Rubards rules the school yards!!!

PSYCHO II, I adore Norman Bates. This movie is sadly underrated..

Out of this list, The Hunger. With Psycho 2 and Sleepaway Camp close behind.

This was a tough call. A very good year, overall, and my impulse choice went to Christine... but after a little thought, I went with Curtains. A highly underrated slasher.
