    Yeah honestly I could've voted either way, slight edge to Alien.

    Agreed, although I ended up going with The Exorcist. I'll be happy with either one advancing though.
    Only the gentle are ever really strong.

    I've been staring at the posters for both, back and forth like a tennis match. I still can't make up my mind.

    Try watching the trailers, maybe that will help.

    I voted for Alien. I think the special effects push it over The Exorcist. Especially the chest burst scene. Although when I was young everyone thought I looked just like Linda Blair. So this one was tough.

    And I played that up with my friends. More than once, they ran out of my house screaming.

    Tough one, though they all should be at this point. I went with The Exorcist. Very close so far - the first time Alien is being challenged.

    I can see the Exorcist pulling this out because Aliens won the 80s tournament and people might be inclined to show love elsewhere. I'm going to hold my vote to my chest for now since I can't really decide.

    to be honest I almost did that, but I thought if I was being honest, I would prefer to watch Alien right now over Exorcist, so voted for Alien, even though a part of me doesn't want it to advance (but then again I do have it in my final 4)

    Edit: for the moment do not construe this as a stated vote for the purposes of tie breakers.

    The poll has closed. Alien moves on and The Exorcist is eliminated.
