    As discussed in this thread, this is a poll to decide the faith of the six movies that either tied or received very few votes. To avoid this ending in more tied results I'd like everyone to discuss and vote even if you havent yet seen the actual film (but have seen trailers / read reviews, discussions, etc)

    The six movies fighting a horde of zombies for your vote and their chance of survival are:

    Idle Hands (1999)
    Eyes Without a Face (1960)
    Fritt Vilt [Cold Prey] (2006)
    The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue (1975)
    Dust Devil (1993)
    Blood Feast (1963)

    Also just to remind people of the thread for replacements for the movies that have been voted of. This thread can be found here

    Idle Hands (1999)

    Given that even Evil Dead 3 didn't make it onto the list, I'm sticking up for this. There's been some weird OCD-like obsession over horror not allowing for any genre crosspollination, and I really liked the combination of stoner comedy and slasher/horror in Idle Hands. Stay.

    Eyes Without a Face (1960)

    Haven't seen it, but the reviews sound positive and it's at least potentially interesting enough to merit space on the list. Stay.

    Fritt Vilt [Cold Prey] (2006)

    Sounds like more interesting fare than most slashers released in the last...oh, decade? Longer? Stay. I've ordered this and its sequel off Play, so shall see whether my faith is well-placed soon enough :)

    The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue (1975)

    Unlike ned, I disagree that there's no such thing as too many zombies. I haven't seen this, but if there's enough "horror comedy" on the list with a couple of films there are definitely enough zombie films on there without adding this to the list.

    Dust Devil (1993)

    Haven't seen this but it sounds interesting enough to be worth a gamble. Stay.

    Blood Feast (1963)

    I voted for this to go. I haven't seen it, but while it may have been influential at the time what I've read about it suggests that watching it today is a "laugh at its crappiness" kind of experience, and I'd hope our list has a higher entry bar than that.

    As I said in other threads I'm keeping Dust Devil in having neglected it before accidentally! Idle Hands too I love, I think it's actually one of the few horror comedies that actually puts in that extra bit of horror whereas most just use a horror premise as a platform for jokes. Eyes Without A Face is a keeper too. The rest of them I haven't seen but I don't feel they would be ones I'd be watching anytime soon.
