    I clicked one of the little circles and realized that it was for Alien. Whew. Voted Psycho.

    The Exorcist should really be here, but in lieu of that, Psycho. Also a tremendous film.

    Interesting final. I'm not surprised by Alien. I've always thought the people of this community really love the Alien franchise. Myself included.

    So, no one finds it odd that "The Best Horror Film" contest comes down to a "Sci-Fi" movie and the first "Slasher" flick? Both are fine films, but really for this category? I guess my mind has been officially blown!!

    Both are very much horror films. As we've discussed in the nominations thread, "horror" is a wide-ranging genre. What would you have liked to see instead?

    John Carpenter's The Thing has a strange alien life form, a spaceship, a remote location, and folks getting picked off one by one, and most folks would consider that primarily horror (with elements of sci-fi). Why can't Alien (which shares all those same elements) be considered similarly?
