    I'm sure Jean will go with Rosemary's Baby, and speaking of which, did you see the new NBC miniseries that just aired, Jean?

    Well, yes, on general principle. I would hate it to be there with a zero. It is not the best horror movie in this bracket, though - A Tale of Two Sisters is. I knew RB wouldn't last long here anyway.

    and speaking of which, did you see the new NBC miniseries that just aired, Jean?
    No, and I don't think I am very enthusiastic about it.

    Just thought I should mention that even though I didn't vote for it, The Conjuring was still a great piece of horror cinema.

    Finally watched The Conjuring last night. Really enjoyed it, but not the best in the bracket.

    Did anyone watch the Rosemary's Baby miniseries? I saw the previews and it looked so different from the original. And as the original followed the book so well, I just couldn't bring myself to bother with it.

    I posted the trailer above. Looks bland, to be honest, but I thought Jean for sure would check it out.

    I watched both parts, and while it had some interesting aspects to it, it was pretty bland overall. For certain plot revelations, it was almost as if the writers were assuming that viewers had already seen the original, so they didn't need to explain anything. A fun miniseries event, but very skip-able.

    I haven't voted yet. I really want to vote for Sisters, but I'm worried it doesn't have a shot, so I might vote for Rosemary's Baby. I also really enjoyed The Conjuring, but I think the other two are more deserving.

    Looks like Sisters is out, alas. If you vote RB it will allow it a ghost of a chance for a tiebreaker

    And how are there no Pet Sematary votes? One of the best King adaptations and truly scary.

    I'm torn between Rosemary's Baby and Pet Sematary. I think Rosemary's Baby is the better film (and psychological horror), but Pet Sematary was much scarier, I thought.

    PS has no chance, while if you vote RB there may be a tiebreaker between RB and House of Wax
