    I really want to watch this, but so far not available on Netflix DVD. Maybe I'll just buy it next time I place a DVD order. Lord knows my shelves are full of blind-buys. Mostly from Asia, as there is no other mechanism for viewing many Asian films (mostly Korean) other than to just import the DVD. Some blind-buys turned out great. Others...not so much.
    Check youtube, I'm pretty sure that's where I watched it.

    I disagree, I love the cast. I've also come to realize that I think we disagree a lot when it comes to horror films

    Also I'm very excited to see that someone else has voted for it, and I'm dying to know who. I have a very soft spot in my heart for that film for some reason.
    I don't mean they are bad in scream, but no one in scream in a starring role in any movie is a good thing lol. When the best performer you got is Rose McGowan lol.
    Well I'm in love with Skeet Ulrich, so that's a plus for me And I really like David Arquette. Granted he's not the greatest actor, but he's really good in those quirky roles.

    And I'm torn between Scream and The Mist.

    I saw Nightmare on Elm Street for the first time this year and thought it was awful.

    Another bracket with some deserving films. I saw The Mist at the theater on what turned into one of the worst nights of my life and could easily have negative memories associated with the film, but I don't. I love the movie! So it gets my vote.

    I might just stop voting if Pontypool is out. That will pretty much leave only 28 Days Later and The Shining remaining out of my top ten horrors

    Voted for Scream, since it looks like The Mist will make it through. I really love both, though.

    I've seen it, and really enjoyed it. I wouldn't mind at all if it advanced. But Scream has a very special place in my heart so I couldn't possibly vote against it.

    Cause it's a great movie It revitalized the horror genre at that time. It was a smart witty horror film that poked fun at the genre. The opening sequence was the best. I remember seeing it in the theater and was shocked, totally wasn't expecting that.

    Scream is like Saw and it was devalued with every bad sequel that followed it; Aunt Jackie from Roseanne is not scary, Wes Craven...the monkey was a better choice...market research says people love monkeys. I can think of at least a half dozen horrors from around the same time did more for horror than Scream, unless by revitalizing horror you mean unleashing a bunch of I Know What You Did Last Urban Legend ETC. upon us all after Scream's success.

    I never said the sequels were good. In fact I wish they had left it as a stand alone film. Same goes for Saw. But we all know when it comes to horror, if a film does good, you know there's going to be another, and another, and another...

    Which wouldn't be bad if they could maintain the quality of the original, but they always just get worse and worse lol That's why something like Quarantine 2 was a pleasant surprise.

    I don't think the sequels should taint your view of the first films though.

    Is there a Quarantine 2 and a [Rec 2], I wonder if I've seen both?

    They do. Like if Saw had of never made a sequel it would have been one of the all time greats, but instead it diluted it's greatness with six sequels so now I attribute Saw with awful sequels not great movie...this happened to The Hangover movies as well. I'm okay with sequels if they aren't unnecessary or terrible or at least an effort but when sequels are obviously nothing more than a shoddy money magnet it just turns me off.

    Quarantine 2 doesn't follow the [Rec] films and it goes in it's own direction. I am hoping for a Quarantine 3 but then again, I know I'm in the minority who actually preferred Quarantine over [Rec], which is probably just because I saw Quarantine first and [Rec] didn't wow me as much because of it I think.
