You just can't handle the truth!

I will check out Kwaidan at some point, though, I quite like a good portmanteau.

C'mon, Morbs, you're not fooling anybody. You may not agree with anything we think, but you care so hard what we think about everything.

Thinking of nominating the Paul Schrader "Cat People" just for the lols. Although the scene where Ed Begley gets his arm ripped off by Catcolm McDowell and bleeds to death on the floor scared the pants off me when I was 13.

Getting the name wrong on one of the most indelible characters in horror history? Sure bet.

Oooh, MrDasher has just reminded me I need to watch Onibaba before we vote in this. Fortunately I have the DVD, yess. Also one for AP's list, if he doesn't mind older stuff...

The Criterion transfer of Häxan is in my queue on Hulu. Must watch before this gets to the voting stage.

I am adding all these titles to the doc. Will do cleanup later when I'm not pretending to work.

It's perfectly possible to do an amazing Italian-free horror list, but I don't know why you'd purposefully want to cut off your naso to spite your faccia.

two of the most boring films of the Carter Administration, Alien and The Shining.

Eric and I both like Kiyoshi Kurosawa a lot, strangely.

really confused about the lack of distinction between horror and suspense/thriller itt. if M. and NIGHT OF THE HUNTER are nominated without remark, can i nominate FRENZY (1972)?!

idk i will just vote from the list you ppl draw up.

wait did anyone say

Mulholland Dr

hahaha too late marc I already nominated Frenzy...

Now let's pummel genre definitions to death!

I know what you mean. I might also have to be quite strict on the distinction between horror and giallo. Maybe. Depends on quite how full to bursting my list gets. Night of the Hunter has been accepted into the horror cannon for a while, though.

Literal Facepalms (Dr Morbius), Thursday, 5 April 2012 14:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

MPD Psycho isn't a film, it's a TV series! It's one of the greatest TV series ever, but still, it doesn't count for this poll.

Also, I thought The Eye was a bit rubbish.
