Another "great" year...

A pretty good year indeed, but I voted for THE INITIATION. It is one of my favorite slashers easily, and I think it is better than all of the other films on the poll.

06-29-2002, 11:54 PM
I went with A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. With the exception of that and SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT 1984 was quite the lackluster year for horror.

Gotta go with Nightmare on Elm Street

06-30-2002, 04:04 AM
Rats: Night of Terror

Nightmare On Elm Street...a great first movie for this series of flicks. :cool:

Great memories of seeing this film on the big screen....

RATS????? My god, MAN! Whatever it is you're smoking, I want some!!!

ANOES and SN,DN are excellent slasher films, but Friday the 13th - The Final Chapter remains one of my most watched horror titles, it just never gets old and is a ton of fun, so it gets my vote.

I'm one of the very few people in the universe who doesn't like ANOES much, I remember it disappointed me greatly when I first saw it. The band Anthrax had been raving about this horror character named Freddy Kruger, and I thought he looked pretty cool but I'd mistakenly thought he'd be this "real" childkiller ala Jason, so I was unprepared for the dream aspect of the story. I like the first two sequels though :)!. '84 was a decent year for horror, I voted for the underrated "Dreamscape". It's a good old video favorite, and it features the best actor ever, certainly the best living actor; David Patrick Kelly. Just my humble opinion(s), of course.

Though the cash cow got milked dry, the first movie in an overly sequeled series is always the best.

07-08-2002, 06:50 PM
Cant I pick more than one? No? Fine. Then I'll go with Friday the 13th 4, but honorable mention goes to ANOES, Night of the Comet and Gremlins. ALL great movies.

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. Freddie is last really great villian to have his own horror series.

07-16-2002, 12:57 PM
ELMSTREET of course. Freddy for President!

10-29-2005, 11:28 PM
Not many votes on this one.Thought I'd bring it back for another trip.
Silent Night Deadly Night just ahead of Elm Street and Rats for me.

10-29-2005, 11:30 PM
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET for me, although I love many movies on that list, especially Silent Night Deadly Night and Night of the Comet.

10-29-2005, 11:43 PM
How do I choose between A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, GREMLINS, and FRIDAY THE 13TH 4??? I went with F13TH 4 just cause I love all the Jason flicks and this is one of the best of them.

Honourable mentions go to FIRESTARTER and DREAMSCAPE. Two movies that I really like.

10-30-2005, 12:01 AM
I voted for Friday part 4 but Silent Night, Deadly Night is a close second.

It helps that F13p4 is on AMC right now and I just caught it in time to see the Crispin Glover dance! :banana:

10-30-2005, 02:11 AM
Friday gets a slight edge on Nightmare. The titties and Glover dance were the tie-breakers. :D

10-30-2005, 02:22 AM
I had to go with Night of the Comet. It is one of the most rewatchable films on the planet. It really needs to be out on DVD, and it should have been for a long time now.

I salute the other two who voted for The Company Of Wolves.

10-30-2005, 02:39 AM
Easy for me, I went with CHUD. I just love the movie, even though there are all kinds of things wrong with it. It's just fun.

10-30-2005, 03:49 AM
It's no lie that the first two films on this list are in my top ten favorite films of all time. Love Love them! So I had to go with A Nightmare on Elm St. with Neil Jordan's The Company of Wolves a close runner up.

And a very special mention to Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter which I think is the best of that series.

Lots of fun ones,but I went with ELM STREET,just edging C.H.U.D. I also second the motion that NIGHT OF THE COMET get a frickin' dvd release !

10-30-2005, 09:34 AM
I like many films on the list, but had to go with A Nightmare on Elm Street.

10-31-2005, 02:08 AM
nightmare on elm street
friday the 13th the final chapter
silent night deadly night

in that order

10-31-2005, 06:52 PM
Uhh, what a horrible year this one was...though i've not seen all of these. But the Company of Wolves saves the year!

11-02-2005, 06:14 PM
I went with CHUD just a slight advantage over Rats. I think the Freddy films are WAY overrated, but knew that would be huge runaway winner. I guess I find the character lame.

06-17-2008, 05:50 PM
Though I haven't seen Night of the Comet yet, this was a really crappy year for horror.

Gremlins is my favorite and vote for the best of the year, with A Nightmare on Elm Street in 2nd place, and Company of Wolves in 3rd.
