What? What are you talking about? It's girls and spaghetti. We love girls and spaghetti.

So much good stuff. I'm going with The Fly, because it's what I'd want to watch right now.

No question about it. I'm with the Brundle-fly all the way.

I just love The Dead Zone.  Walken is awesome and his usual akwardness really fits the character.  I wish more people saw it. 
I’ve lied to men who wear belts. I’ve lied to men who wear suspenders. But I’d never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

Videodrome. The first time I watched it I felt like I was really going on a ride. There is also a lot that one can read into the film, and it can be different on every viewing. It's a real trip and a real treat.

A lot of respect for the Dead Zone, The Fly and AHOV.

Basically, Cronenberg is cool and thank you for this poll.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.
