probably the thing..or they live. of course the thing is the "better" movie, but there is something about the cheesiness of they live. Twisted Evil

For me it was a toss up between Halloween and They Live...both great movies IMO.

I'm glad Prince of Darkness wasn't on the list...I was already having a hard enough time choosing between They Live and The Thing. Wink

It's a damn fine movie. Watch it again when you get a chance. There are films that describe "scary" or "funny"...when you look up "eerie" in the dictionary, there's a picture of the Prince of Darkness movie poster there. Wink

I guess I'll have to go watch "The Thing". I voted for "Escape from New York," classic by any definition.
