1SO: You don't have to rewatch Eyes Without A Face. I'll take it out of contention!

It is a movie that is more unpleasant than it is scary.

Eh... to me, "scary" isn't a consideration. I think of this as "best movies that happen to fall somewhere in the horror genre".

So far the only one I'm truly bummed about is Repulsion. Se7en is really good but I agree it may be too far from the genre to qualify.

I'm 100% certain Bondo is going to eliminate one of my favorites.

I suppose we shall see.

I'm a bit confused about the presence of both The Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2 on the list since it's basically the same movie, but since I think I've only seen Evil Dead 2, that is the one I shall eliminate.

Just took out my #1.

I'll eliminate Hellraiser. I watched it once and it didn't make much of an impression. I think the lore around Pinhead is more intriguing than the actual films.
