    I still don't know how MLP got in.

    Sadly, Bug hasn't been seen by enough people, I reckon. It's a fucking great film though.

    I haven't kept up with these polls because I've (sadly) not seen a lot of the movies listed and feel it unfair to vote. However, coming in here and seeing My Little Pony in the running just blows my mind.

    The only time I saw Bug was when I was under the influence of shrooms so I didn't feel confident giving it a vote

    You should watch it again. It's right up your alley.

    I'll vote for the original Solaris when we get to that tournament. The remake was pretty good but I love Tarkovsky and his version better.

    I loved that film. Creepy (pun intended), and although it's reported there was a body double for Judd's nude scenes, they were certainly tantalizing.

    Have you ever seen a movie where you weren't under the influence?

    It's a testament to the simplicity of the nomination process (dreams do come true - not that this was my dream).
    I donít like it!

    Two great horror films are tied for last: Antichrist and Bug. Antichrist is the better one for me.

    Man, tough choice between Bug and Antichrist but if it comes to it, take my vote away from Bug. Friedkin had one last trick up his sleeve with Killer Joe and I will go for that one in the next tournament.

    I know I don't set the rules around here, but it seems that taking away votes (or adding them) after the poll results are close to final is...well, not in the spirit of free and fair voting. Else, I would say "add a vote for Bug" b/c I can't stand Von Trier.

    And that will prompt someone else to say "ok; change my vote also" and so on and so on and then where would we be?

    My opinion, just let the votes fall out as they may.

    I can understand that but Iím hoping people are voting in good faith for movies they like and not against movies they donít. Taking votes away is probably not a good idea, but if someone didnít vote or would have voted but didnít, we can add that before the poll closes if it helps to avoid a tiebreaker. A tie in these last groups means Round 2 is delayed and there will be more polls to post daily, than the fairly easy four a day four days out of seven for two weeks.

    Killer Joe is fuuuuucked up but it's awesome.

    Plus, I love Juno Temple.

    Only 23 votes here and we've had up to 27 votes in other polls so hopefully with about 15 hours to go the tie between Antichrist and Bug will be broken.
