I love Captain Clegg aka Night Creatures although despite being Hammer never thought of it as horror. More of a Swash Buckler and smuggler movie. Great atmosphere though.

I've only seen 5 films on this list, which should make voting easy, but The Premature Burial is a bit rickety compared to the other Corman / AIP / Price / Poe lot of films from '60-65.

So, I voted for 4. I'm due a rewatch but I've always found Corman's heartless, cold, mean-spirited version of Tower of London compelling, darker for type than the color films in the series, and very rewarding.

And, of course, Carnival of Souls- which is one of the best films I've ever seen.
