    (051) Event Horizon (1997)
    Never understood why this movie is so popular.

    (052) Pyscho (1960)
    Classic movie with an career high performance from Perkins.

    (053) Cube (1997)
    More sci-fi than horror IMO.Good movie but I think there are worthier horrors out there.

    (054) 30 days of night (2007)
    Thoroughly enjoyable vampire movie,fans of the Twilight saga should be made watch this.

    (055) Behind the Mask - The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006)
    Havnt seen it yet but have heard good things.

    (056) The Devils Rejects (2005)
    Love it,love it,love it.Simply an outstanding movie and proof positive that Zombie doesnt need to work on remakes.

    (057) The Howling (1981)
    Along with An American Werewolf In London as my favourite werewolf flick.

    (058) Eyes Without a Face (1960)
    Still havnt seen it,must track it down.

    (059) The Prowler (1981)
    Right up there with Friday the 13th and Halloween as a classic slasher movie.More brilliant effects work from Savini too.

    (060) Eraserhead (1977)
    Nuts,just nuts.Its been years since Ive seen it but IIRC its a total headfook.Must dig it out again.

    (051) Event Horizon (1997)
    It's flawed, but having rewatched it a while back I can see what they were trying to do with it. (Though I think that url= short film[/url] probably achieved that effect better).

    (052) Pyscho (1960)
    Absolute class.

    (053) Cube (1997)
    Like Event Horizon, a rewatch had me warming to it slightly more than on my first viewing. It's flawed but the conceit is interesting.

    (054) 30 days of night (2007)
    I though this was a pretty blotchy adaptation. Having read the comic first I really liked the visuals but the acting and pace were horrendous. The notion at its core was great, but as a film it's not particularly good and frankly I'd recommend the comic over the film any day of the week.

    (055) Behind the Mask - The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006)
    Haven't seen it, so onto my list of stuff to check out it goes.

    (056) The Devils Rejects (2005)
    I expected to hate this but when I was finally convinced to try it out I really enjoyed it. The humour, the violence, the characterisation - everything was spot on, demonstrating Zombie's flair for direction.

    (057) The Howling (1981)
    Haven't seen it, so onto my list of stuff to check out it goes.

    (058) Eyes Without a Face (1960)
    Haven't seen it, so onto my list of stuff to check out it goes.

    (059) The Prowler (1981)
    Haven't seen it, so onto my list of stuff to check out it goes.

    (060) Eraserhead (1977)
    I've never really thought of it as a horror film really, but it does fit the bill. It's a fantastically surreal nightmare of a film, and well worth a re-watch now and again.

    (051) Event Horizon (1997)

    Voted for this to go, I like the film, but have never been completely sold on it

    (052) Pyscho (1960)
    It's a classic and belongs on any definitive list

    (053) Cube (1997)
    Think I suggested this one. Low budget, and inventive, a shining light during a drab period for horror.

    (054) 30 days of night (2007)
    Really enjoyed this, so voted for it to stay, was a nice change from the gothic anne rice type vampire.

    (055) Behind the Mask - The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006)

    Suggested this too ... so of course voted for it.
    (057) The Howling (1981)

    Voted for this to stay .. then realised I had it mixed up with Wolfen, a better film.

    has any one seen eyes with out a face? Just wondering why its on the list as no one is voting for or against it


  • Registered Users Posts: 556 ✭✭✭MudSkipper


    (051) Event Horizon (1997)
    (053) Cube (1997)

    Voted both of these to go, although I really liked Cube, just never thought of it as a horror. Event horizon is more sci-fi, much more so than say Alien ;)

    (052) Pyscho (1960)
    Should be somewhere in the first 15 really, a classic

    (056) The Devils Rejects (2005)
    This one put the fun back into horror for me, so it stays :)

    (060) Eraserhead (1977)
    Been years since I watched it, messes with your head which is good :p

    Have not seen the others, must track them down
