For the 90s polls I'm trying not to include TV flicks or direct-to-video releases. Movies only. Here we go:

.....for the biggest "BOO!" scene of all time....

07-03-2002, 01:30 AM
Misery. Very scary and very believable.

07-03-2002, 03:38 AM
The Exorcist III is a very good sequel though I thought II was a bit lame. ;)

07-03-2002, 04:24 AM
i chose Night of the Living Dead!
fucking awesome remake!

Lots of good movies here, tough to go with just one. In the end though, Tremors for the fun monster movie that it was.

07-04-2002, 12:49 AM
I have to go with Misery on this one.

07-04-2002, 01:28 AM
"Two Evil Eyes".

Jacobs Ladder - I don't know if it's horror - but it sure is tasty

07-06-2002, 03:11 AM
Nightbreed, just because Clive Barker is a sick motherfucker!!!

07-09-2002, 06:22 PM
I'd have to go with Nightbreed too. There's just a certain quality to that flick that makes me really enjoy watching it.

07-12-2002, 05:29 PM
Frankenhooker and Jacobs Ladder....two great flicks. Jacobs Ladder it the better though.

07-13-2002, 02:32 PM
Without a doubt Jacob's Ladder! Best movie ever according to me, though I don't realy see it as a horror movie - but there's definetly huge amounts of psycological horror in there and a bunch of very disturbing images.

It's a great movie with some extraordinary scenes and a killer soundtrack

Another great year for horror, another year better than any of this current decade.

I vote for Misery as my favorite. Because I love crazy women and Kathy Bates is so freaking funny that's almost not scary in the movie. If it weren't for her ability to tone it down in scenes like "help me help you" and the Hobbling scene, she would have been too funny for the movie.

But I really love and respect what Arachnophobia did. That movie is so unbelievably effective and creepy, it's remarkable. Everyone I've talked to who's seen the movie said it got a huge reaction out of them. The movie is so skilled, it psychologically makes you feel something crawling on your skin. It's impossible to see this movie and not feel something. It's the only movie to ever make the hairs on my arms and legs stand up. And I've seen it like 4 or 5 times. It still creeps me out. Especially that scene at the end in "the nest."

Then, Tremors and Gremlins 2: The New Batch, two more excellent monster / creature films. Great year.

My top pick would be Savini's remake of Night of the Living Dead. Runner up choices are: Two Evil Eyes, Exorcist III, and Jacob's Ladder.

06-24-2008, 11:35 PM
Even though I adore Jacob's Ladder, I went with Exorcist III. Blatty really kicked ass on this one, even though the studio's interference is pretty obvious. The acting (George C. Scott and Brad Dourif especially), the dialogue and the story are all fantastic, but what really puts it over the top is the technique Blatty put into it. The scene in the hallway is absolute perfection, but the old lady crawling on the ceiling, the scene with Scott racing home and the use of sound throughout are all just so well done. Too bad we'll never see a director's cut :(

I went with Jacobs Ladder because the first time I saw it made such a strong impression. Though I probablly watch Savini's remake more often.

i chose Night of the Living Dead!
fucking awesome remake!

Darkman is my fav Raimi flick. I consider it a tragic masterpiece. So...

06-25-2008, 02:01 AM
I wanted to spread the love a bit and went with Tremors - a wonderful monster/comedy film.

06-25-2008, 04:09 AM
Two Evil Eyes is my choice. Followed closely by Exorcist 3.

MISERY,though I think EXCORCIST 3 is underrated and TWO EVIL EYES is stronger than many people think.

This was very hard for me! So many great titles ... Misery and Nightbreed are favorites of mine. I just recently saw Hardware for the first time and I loved it to pieces. (Richard Stanley, come back!!).

Then there's stuff I really like, borderline love, like Exorcist III, Tremors and Flatliners .. Jacob's Ladder and Darkman. Two Evil Eyes. So much good stuff.

But I went with the film that truly disturbed me the most when I first saw it, and that I have watched the most since:


Which is simply put an amazing movie in every conceivable way.

Thank you! Damn it's about time that movie got some more love. All it seems to get these days are a bunch of macho guys going, "that's not scary." Oh yeah?! I'd like to see you in Jeff Daniels position in that scene with the family running up the stairs and in the bathroom with the spiders all over the walls and descending from the ceiling!!! Gave part of this a re-watch about 3 days ago and that feeling came over me again. Then I flipped back to an earlier scene and I started feeling paranoid and depressed. This is a powerful movie!

06-25-2008, 03:49 PM
I picked Misery. Kathy Bates was awesome.

06-25-2008, 06:27 PM
Arachnophobia. This movie worked on every level when I was younger and it still holds up. John Goodman is hilarious and every scene with a spider creeps me out.

I enjoy Darkman, Tremors and a few others off this list too though.

06-27-2008, 07:34 PM
Tremors. I've watched that movie so many times!

Also good:
Childs Play II

06-27-2008, 11:02 PM
I went with Misery - not too many I like on this list

Jacob's Ladder definitely. Great flick. I recall having a lengthy in-depth discussion with all my friends after we left the theatre.
