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

Last House
Scream
Red Eye

Seriously, Red Eye is really good. The two leads are fantastic.

Shocker is one of my all time Guilty Pleasures.  I will never defend it, but I'm always up to watch it.

I'm not a huge fan of his stuff in general, but if I had to choose I'd go with Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream and Red Eye.

A Nightmare on Elm Street
New Nightmare
The Hills Have Eyes

Really, no other votes for New Nightmare?  The end kills it a little, but the first two-thirds are fantastic

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Scream and Nightmare (want to vote for Last House based on reputation though)

Red Eye is not good, its slick - though its better than Schocker, New Nightmare, People Under the Stairs

Voted for Scream and Nightmare. I would have voted for Wes Craven's New Nightmare had it made the list.

One more for Scream and Nightmare.

Red Eye's only saving grace was its mercifully short running time.
