    My obvious first choice is Nightmare on Elm St. Although I'm sure it'll breeze on through to the next round, so I'm debating about sending my vote elsewhere. But I can't decide what one. I loved them (all minus The Mist). Going to have to think for a bit.

    Think I'll have to give my love to The Ring, a very underappreciated film (and even more unappreciated sequel that I hated the first time I saw it) because of it's strong performances and absolute permeation with dread and atmosphere. Some movies try to be a little creepy all the time and almost none succeed...I'd put the ring, in terms of constant atmosphere, up there with films like The Orphanage and Halloween. I still watch both of The Ring films about once a year and I never seem to get sick of them. I hear Ringu is better than The Ring but I simply can't see it, much like how I cannot see how Let The Right One In is better than Let Me In.

    A Nightmare on Elm Street is probably the best horror film of the group. The Ring is a very well-made creepy horror. I love both of those movies. Even Saw is very effective at what it sets out to do. But for all around over-the-top enjoyment, I have to give my vote to Re-Animator.

    If The Ring and Nightmare advance this might be the best outcome to a poll yet.

    I agree with everything you just said. I'm still torn on which of these to vote for.

    I know, I think I said that in another thread I just never knew there was so much love for it, especially considering all the other films in this group.

    the good thing is that Saw didn't advance. I was suspecting it would be running away with it.

    I really wanted to vote for Saw, but it looks like it didn't have a chance. I thought it was a great horror film. Did you not like it at all?

    Bee-cause it's not very good? Watched it in theaters and was pretty bored. A few creepy moments, but blah.

    No. I hate horror films "with a deep meaning". Note the quotations marks.
