Wow, what a year for horror!

I went with The Fog, Friday the 13th, The Shining, The Changeling, and Inferno. It was tough leaving off City of the Living Dead and Terror Train though.

Inferno, Shining, Changeling, Friday the 13th and it was a toss up between Terror Train and Humanoids but Humanoids won out.

Indeed, but it didn't have enough IMDb voting counts to be included in the top 20. The cut off line was 2400 votes to fill 20 spots. Mother's Day has 2364 votes only

Like I said before, these polls are based on IMDb voting counts. Christmas Evil has 1705 IMDb votes. Not "popular" enough to crack the top 20.
