Well, I called you out, and you responded. The results are in, and the LAMB has picked its Top 10 Horror Films (for background on this, click here). There were a total of 55 voters, with their votes spread out amongst 195 films.
As you might imagine, it was a terribly tight competition, with little dropoff in vote totals from one film to the next – there’s a decent sized gap between 2nd and 3rd, 4th and 5th, and 9th and 10th, but everything is tightly packed together like bodies in a freezer. Anyway, I’m sure you’ve stopped reading by now and are checking out the selections below, so I’ll just shut up now.
Here are your winners (1st place votes in parentheses):
1. The Exorcist – 202 points from 25 votes (9)
So…how many did you vote for? If you’d like to see yours and all the other votes, scroll down. I’ve added a post with all of them, but have dated it prior to this post so it won’t clutter the page.
Others receiving 1st-place votes: The Blair Witch Project, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, The Descent (2), The Evil Dead, Isle of the Dead, M, Nosferatu, Phantasm, Rosemary’s Baby, Saw (2), Shaun of the Dead, Silent Night Deadly Night, The Silence of the Lambs (2), Suspiria and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.
Next up? Sports movies. Go vote now so I don’t have to hassle you later! The poll is already up, and will be for two weeks – be sure to read the instructions. I would prefer that the films are mostly rather than tangentially about sports, but anything still goes (aka “The Jerry Maguire Complaint”). Please be sure to read all the instructions. Thanks.
