OK, another Care2 glitch . . . or is it a Hallowe'en trick . . . but the title disappeared. This is: 10/31/15 – Poll Results for “Best Horror Movie of All Time” from Nameless on Politics Plus.

LOL Well, Jaws was the only one on the list that wasn't on the list that really DID scare the doggie doo doo out of me when I saw it the first time. So much so that, when we would go out on the Gulf in Galveston Bay, I was always watching the water.

Oh, how cool.!!!

Loved the Princess Leia costume, though the cat did not look happy.

The Dirt Devil commercial was funny, though I didn't see that coming either.

You all deserve kudos for getting this together, it's great!!!

Happy Halloween who celebrate! Thanks!

The short video clip of the woman and skeleton was from an old Vincent Price film. I had forgotten about his films until I saw this clip. I remember seeing this as a kid so long ago that I have forgotten about my own age. lol. Vincent made a number of films in this genre without the use CGI. Boris Karloff was an early master of horror films. 

While I didn't vote mainly because there was no comment page, I would have gone with what was on the list. Psycho was my first choice as it was a milestone in cinema history and made in 1960! Alfred Hitchcock made a lot of money with this film than any of his other films. I don't really consider Psycho as a horror film but more of a suspense film. I liked Carrie better than The Exorcist. I did think about the GOP debate as a thought. lol! Another film I liked was An American Werewolf in London (1981). 

Looks like I am one of a few in PP that enjoys a good horror film. I liked Jaws but I don't consider it a horror film although I did jump out of my seat at the theater. We were sitting in the very front row in the middle as they were the last four seats left in sold-out movie theater. 

Top 100 horror movies per Rotten Tomatoes

It's maybe strange for some, but I could never really get into Hallowe'en, even as a kid.  Nor did I get into scarey or horror movies.  The movies never appealed to me but I am well aware of Boris Karloff, Vincent Price, Peter Lorre etc.  I do remember finding their movies boring and moving on to other activities.

Even though Halloween was the inducement for your poll on horror movies, it turned out that most of us didn't think slasher movies were entertaining and that we were more partial to suspense, something you had already counted on when you compiled your list of options, Nameless. The winner The Exorcist comes closest to the old fashioned definition of horror and therefor rightly on number 1. Thanks for putting this fun poll together and for reporting on it.

Love horror. Thought the exorcist for scary at the time was awesome. You have to add the time and decade factor. We think bela Lugosi not scary now, but at the time people fainted. For pure entertainment love Jamie Lee in Halloween. For camp love too many to mention.
