Innocent Blood is a great underrated film. But it's still not as good as Candyman...

I've always been a big fan of Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Dead Alive is my vote for best horror movie. Man Bites Dog is my vote for best movie. Since we are in a horror forum, my lone vote goes to Dead Alive.

See, this is what you get if you listen to other people. I have not seen "Man Bites Dog" and cannot judge, but was told by others that it most definitely could be/is a "horror" film.
I guess its the same deal with "The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover", a movie I haven't seen but was blamed for not including it in another horror poll once.

Hellbilly, trust me, MAN BITES DOG can definitely be considered a horror film. I've always considered it a horror/black comedy, and I know several others who consider it such as well. :)

I agree.

The black comedy I can see, but I just don't see how this could be considered horror. I know he goes around killing people, but his style is more of a hitman. It would be like calling Leon (The Professional) a horror film to me.

Even tho black comedy/satire but I think the reason why people consider "Man Bites Dog" a "horror" film must be (so I've heard) the extreme violent and graphic way the guy kills.
Whatever the deal is, Criterion is releasing a special edition DVD end of the year so I guess I'll have to check it out for myself.

Bram Stoker's Dracula (though it should have been called Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula). Despite the fact that it's further proof that Keanu Reeves CANNOT act, the movie had a great story, great effects, great sets, great costumes, and great photography.

Candyman. It remains one of the creepiest and brutal horror movies I've seen. Great story and great cast. I love Todd. He's the man.

Now this was an excellent year for horror. Nearly more great horror movies were released this year than in the entire 8.5 years of this current decade.

I voted for Dust Devil as my favorite. But I was torn between this and Innocent Blood. Even though it's more comedy than horror, it's very well-written, very bloody, it has great special effects, and it's entertaining as hell. Not one single dull moment to be found.

Sleepwalkers is incredibly underrated. Madchen Amick makes a great heroine and is very likable. Alice Krige is a terrific villain and gives an amazing, graceful, and yet very intense performance. The blood and gore factor is well served. It's absolutely hilarious! It's twisted, inventive, dark, the supporting cast is excellent, and it's got a lot of horror cameos. I don't understand what people have against this movie.

Bram Stoker's Dracula also got an unfair shake for years online. I know Keanu Reeves sucked in it and Winona Ryder feels wooden in a lot of her performances. But to say the least, it's stylish, dark, the blood / gore looks great, the music is incredible, the camerawork is awesome, the production values are high, it's romantic if you like that, the vampire characters kill a baby if you want something disturbing (I always liked that touch), Anthony Hopkins ('nuff said), and everything comes together to form something wonderfully moody and effective. I love it!

Then, of course, Dead Alive and Candyman.

This year alone proves the 1990's are an underrated decade.

Voted for Candyman. Runner up choices would be Innocent Blood and Alien 3 (despite the poor f/x).

I love Dead Alive, Sleepwalkers and Pet Sematary II are guilty pleasures, Candyman was good and Dust Devil is a beautiful although disappointingly flawed film, but I just had to go with Alien 3.

The best explanation I can give is that it's a good movie, but a terrible sequel. Killing off two main characters right at the start? Awful. Ripley also acts like she's got brain damage (banging the doctor?) and the ending was pretty lackluster. Still, the lighting, camera work, actors, suspense and story are all really good. The weird part is that the workprint makes it even better, giving any defenders of the flick a strong argument.

Plus, Charles S. Dutton's character is fucking awesome! Ex-rapist/murderer finds God and becomes a real badass when shit starts hitting the fan, plus that scene in the lead foundry when he takes off his glasses is one of the absolute best in the series. He also has a couple of great speeches in there too.
