Halloween: H20, it brought back the unstoppable killer in a big way, with a knock out climax. This was the best of the Scream inspired films, IMO.

RING. Very freaky and frightening film, and easily the best of 1998. Second place goes to BLADE.

Phantoms by default. Horrible year for horror movies.

H2O

Even though I'm now finiding out that it wasn't what I was led to believe it was, it was still a really well done movie.

I'll go with Blade. Very good vampire flick. Better than I had expected.

I haven't seen Ringu yet.

So I have to go with Bride of Chucky. A completely underrated film. I'm still astonished at how good and detailed and well-thought out it is.

Not a great year but not a bad one either. Certainly better than '93.

I went with Vampire$. An enjoyable, well-made guilty pleasure.

Ringu gets my vote. '98 was not a memorable year for horror overall.

I haven't seen that one yet. But I can't imagine - what was there (in the plot / production) for it to possibly have been pretentious about?

Halloween H20 - the return of Jamie Lee!

I liked:

Ring
Bio Zombie
Blade
Fallen
The Faculty

I voted for Blade cause it's the one I watch the most.

The Faculty for me. H20 runner up.

That's what I figured as well. I mean, what exactly is pretentiousness in the horror genre? Romero's films? Carpenter's films? Craven? Argento? Larry Cohen? Michele Soavi?

Are sloppy socio-political messages pretentious? Because no one cares about them?

Is a movie pretentious just because it's boring? Like, not in the horror genre, but if they made a film just showing grass grow (with no narration), would that be pretentious?

Are movies about people trying to survive where all the men live and the women die pretentious? Are colorful movies for children pretentious? Is everyone pretentious? Anyone with an opinion? Or is pretentiousness in your eyes just a sixth sense, like a dream?

Is everyone pretentious?

Yes.

Good. Than pointing that out in future is the same as saying everyone needs oxygen. "D'uuuuuuuhhhhh!"

It's hard to find a movie I loved in the that lineup. I went with Carpenter's Vampires which has really grown on me.

Strangeland and The Faculty are runner-ups.

Ring gets my vote, as it gave me a good scare and was a quick shock to the current state of American Horror, even if it did inspire countless imitators, the likes of which we are still seeing. Creepy Japanese kids! Watch out! They're pale!

Went with The Faculty. Fun little film I've watched about 5 times now.

My vote goes happily to Deep Rising.

This flick came from nowhere, with Treat Williams headlining. Being a fan of his, I was sold completely. When I saw this, I was pleasantly surprised by the good cast, the cleverness of the script, the splatter-effects and gore and the all around fun!

A great time and a good horror entry!
