Once again....no right answers:

The Beast must Die IS the best 70's horror film ever - it had such genre crossover.

It had the Blaxploitation thang going on combined with horror, mystery (it had a Werewolf Break allowing everyone to try and guess who it was) as well as a solid cast (Peter Cushing, Micheal Gambon).

If you haven't seen it...check it out soon.

Next question (I will never let this thread die, although Paap has abandoned it), is.........

what is the best horror film for gratuitis nudity?

So many to choose from!

I'm gonna go with Blood For Dracula, if only because I watched it last week as a double bill with Flesh for Frankenstein. I can heartily recommend both these films, they transcend bad. Five stars each!

Ooh! Just remembered Lifeforce, which was once reviewed in my local paper as "Naked zombie vampires from outer space."

'Tis the right answer to the gratuitous nudity question.....

Now for the next question:

What is the best Vampire movie ever made?

you have mistaken our mocking as a hostile act - far be it from the truth.

Paaps ramblings were amongst the best things on this forum which is why this thread in all its insane glory will never die (unless I go on holiday and I most probably won't bother when I come back)

Any, if anyone knows paaps whereabouts, please let us know - I am getting worried - just give us a sign.........let us know that you still think explosions are the best or that Godzilla is the best film ever, or, well, anything.....

"The Thing" is one of my favorite films and obviously you, clownfoot, love it too. However, for some reason you seem to believe the only way to justify it's greatness is to waffle on about all the same old crap that everyone else waffles on about who also loves this film. Cold War... paranoia... All valid reasons, however, I must confess I didn't read everything you wrote, only because I believe that the films genius is much more simplified than all of that. It's all to do with tone. Nobody creates tone in a movie like John Carpenter creates tone in a movie. If you look at all his greatest works- "Assault On Precinct 13", "Halloween", "Big Trouble in Little China". Ask yourself, what is it that makes this movie great? It's that thick tone that's mostly driven by great music. Music is a powerful tool and Carpenter knows exactly how to use it, not suprising concidering his musical backround. And that's it. Simple as. Sure the performances maybe good, but they're not the kind that win awards. And yes, the film touches on all that paranoia, and cold war stuff too. But that's not what you're thinking about when you're watching the film is it?

Completely agree with anyone who qualifies the Thing in their top ten. This was John Carpenter's best horror movie (better than Halloween , The Fog etc). This movie is a great advert for Latex over CGI. The Evil Dead and Phantasm movies (1&2) would probably be up there as well.
Regarding the chap who mentioned Salems Lot as scary -bloody right. As a child I remember jumping off the sofa the first time you meet the Master in the jail scene. The last scene in the Invasion of the Body Snatchers falls into that category too

The only true heros of Horros are these bad boys.
Killing all those annoying teenagers in such hilarious ways is a joy to watch.

So, what you meant to say was "who is the second greatest hero?"

Possibly Ripley from Alien, though technically she's a heroine, not a hero.

The Kung-fu priest from Braindead? He kicks arse for the Lord, you know.

This is actually quite tricky, as horror films generally concentrate on the iconic bad guy, not the hero.

Ugh!

Ok then,what i meant to say was "who's the third greatest hero?",seeing as MacReady is the second.

Can't be arsed now.

If Paap were a film character - he would be the greatest.....

My second choice would be Tom Atkins in the Night of the Creeps....

If any of you have seen this, you'll know what I mean.........

Kurt Russell from the Thing is the only hero i can think of.

Have you noticed that in nearly every horror movie the hero is a woman. Usually because there about to get massacred. But  in nearly every famous horror film the person whos the hero is a woman  Hellraiser .A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream, Halloween, Alien etc etc.

I think it's probably because from an audience perspective it raises tension. Take Scream for example. Wouldn't it just be weird if the character being pursued all the time was a man?
Final Destination 3 is a pretty lame film but there's an interesting documentary as a special feature about the horror genre (the doc is actually better than the movie). It highlights the points you mentioned in quite an informative way.

Are we going to get an answer to the 'greatest horror hero' question? I'm changing my answer and going with  the brother from The Hills Have Eyes, can't remember his name.

Best hero in horror would be either Ash from Evil Dead movies or Reggie from Phantasm series

In response to Clownfoot's declaration of love to the movie, The Thing, I would argue that this is the best horror movie I have ever seen.
Superb latex effects, tense filled set pieces, claustrophobic setting, scary 80's score, a relentless sense of dread and downbeat ending - what an awsome monster movie.
I hope they do not remake this one with CGI effects and without Rob Bottin. Perhaps the best gooey effects in history.
To all the Alien, Exorcist, Omen, Phantasm and Evil Dead fans out there that disagree with me. These are all classic horror films but none top, The Thing.
