I just don't like it. It's so desperately dull. I've read the story too, which isn't much better though it is a lot shorter, and I like her writing style. And the end is terrifying. But it's just so dull and I don't care for either lead at all.


Watch it again, it might have the same effect on you that Ikiru had on Homer.

I actually think it's quite low.

This will finish up tonight. Anyone want to place bets on the top 10?

Interesting choices.

If anyone can do all ten in order, they can get copies of the films...


As long as they go to Amazon and buy them.

I reckon Brazil, The Thing, Eternal Sunshine, Big Lebowski, Blade Runner, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Rocky Horror, Clockwork Orange, Evil Dead II, Fight Club.

Also, I'm just gonna wait till the end to post opinions, as I'm miles behind already .

Possess Your Corpse - Amazing

Lemonade Joe - Also amazing. A far better western spoof than Blazing Saddles. Everyone should see this.

Pitch Black - It's ok I guess. At least it's not as terrible as the sequel.

Cheech and Chong - I love the odd toke of weed myself but for some reason I've never understood the appeal of C&C. I should revisit sometime soon.

Quadrophenia - Not a fan to be honest although I haven't seen it in years.

Blair Witch - Very good but I still think Cannibal Holocaust is the best found footage horror film.

Paris Texas - Excellent stuff. I need to check out some more of Wenders films.

I Drink Your Blood - Just missed the cut on my list. Grindhouse at it's finest.

Solaris - Should be higher. My second favourite Tarkovsky.

Thriller: A Cruel Picture - Superb. My only complaint is that some of the super slow motion can be annoying.

Martin - Romero's best work for me after Day Of The Dead.

Eight Legged Freaks - Good fun.

Dune - Yeah Jodorowsky's version would have been incredible. I'm not a big fan of Lynch's version tbh.

Kill List - Great stuff. One of the finest horror films of the last few years. The bit in the tunnels was terrifying.

Encounters Of The Spooky Kind - Brilliant. An amazing blend of horror and martial arts. Makes a great double bill with Human Lanterns.

Requiem For A Dream - It's very, very good but such a tough watch.

Cube - I used to love this a lot more but in recent years I've gone off it.

Possession - Fantastic. Sam Neil's performance freaks me out for some reason though.

Blood Simple - Very good.

Crumb - Amazing. It's heartbreaking watching his recluse brother when you realise the potential the guy had as an artist.

Alice - The best adaptation of the story for me.

Deep End - Excellent.

Spongebob - It's not a favourite of mine but it has some good laughs.

A Scanner Darkly - Keanu's best performance.

Angel Heart - It's been such a long time since I saw this I can't remember if it's any good or not. Due a rewatch I think.

Baron Munchausen - The only Gilliam film I dislike.

Santa Sangre - Brilliant. I really wish Jodorowsky would give us one last film.

Howl's Moving Castle - My favourite Ghibli.

The Beyond - One of Fulci's finest moments. My favourite scene is Martha's eyeball popping.

Deep Red - I like Argento but this was below par.

Singapore Sling - Excellent. Can't remember if I voted for it though.

Santa Claus/Martians - I'd rather have hot needles stuck in my balls than sit through this again.

Ilsa - Awesome. I can't believe it cracked the the top 150.

Willy Wonka - Loved it as a kid but not so much now. Gene Wilder is great in it though.

Showgirls - So bad but so awesome.

Sweet Movie - I don't fully understand this but some of the imagery is astounding. Carol Laure being covered in chocolate while naked is truly a wondrous sight. Um.....yeah, I think I missed the point of that scene.

Bride Of Frankenstein - The best of the old Universal horrors.

Black Sunday - Great atmosphere and beautiful to look at. One of Bava's finest moments.

Cockfighter - Brilliant film and one of the greatest pieces of acting ever commited to film by Warren Oates.

Clue - Good fun.

They Live - Superb. I think it's unfairly neglected sometimes compared to Carpenters other work.

Inland Empire - Amazing. My favourite Lynch film.

Phantasm - Good stuff. More people should see this. I quite like the sequels too.

Straw Dogs - Great film and Hoffman is extraordinary in it.

The Warriors - Very good.

Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders - Stunning.

Clerks - It's ok. I don't love it as much as I used to.

Predator - Awesome. Mctiernan was on a hot streak with this and Die Hard,

Braindead - I really wish Jackson would make a 200 million dollar sequel to this.

Ichi The Killer - It's great but nowhere near as good as Miike's best work.

The King Of Comedy - This is slowly but surely becoming my favourite Scorsese.

Ok I'm getting tired of typing so I'll just say Robocop, Witchfinder General, The Proposition, Duel, Dark Star, American Werewolf, The Burbs and Re-Animator are all excellent. Oh and I just watched Bat Pussy for the first time ever recently and can't believe what the fuck I witnessed.

Top Ten? I think Blade Runner, The Thing, Brazil, Fight Club and A Clockwork Orange will all feature.

Oh yeah I almost forgot about Stalker. I think that will make the top 10 for sure.

Yeah I expect Brazil, The Thing, Blade Runner, Evil Dead 2, Spirited Away and at least one Ghibli, probably Spirited Away, to be in the top 10.

Then again I expected Rushmore, Life of Brian and The Royal Tenenbaums to be top 50 material as well so it shows what I fucking know .

I'd have guessed Pink Flamingos for top ten, surprised to see it just outside. Rocky Horror's bound to be up there.

I'm actually pleasantly surprised at how high Flamingos was. It's not a film talked about much around here, so I'm glad it did well. Rocky Horror missing out on the top 20 was a shocker though.

El Topo will be the surprise entry in the top 10 methinks.

Holy cats, do you ever take a break, Rawlinson? You're really ripping through this thing.

Anyways, that's a really good showing for Twin Peaks FWWM. I didn't think it would get that high. And Suspiria is a fucking sweet flick.

Interesting top 10, I've never even heard of El Topo so I'll have to seek that one out. Glad to see Brazil and Eternal Sunshine so high too.

Thanks for running the list Rawls .

When you get to the end stage of the list it doesn't take as much work, there's no 5 or 6 place ties to slow things down, and you get the urge to get it over and done with. It's why I always hammer through the top 100.

Anyway, the list is all done, a couple of surprises in the top 10, I think, which I'm glad about. And a nice list all in all. Thanks everyone who took part.

That's an amazing top 20 and there's not a single film in it I don't like. Very surprised and happy to see El Topo in the top 10 and Faster Pussycat make the top 20.

Thanks for all the effort in running the poll Rawlinson and I have to say I don't think I've seen a better cult list anywhere on the internet. Can one of the mods stick this in the List of lists thread please? It's my favourite poll on the forum so far.

Rocky Horror didn't make the top 20!? For shame, Empire!

Fight Club - great.

Holy Grail - amazing, though I wouldn't class it as cult (mainly because it's a film I've watched with my family for as long as I can remember, which makes me think of it as a family film).

Picnic at Hanging Rock - great.

Suspira - really, really loved it. The only Halloween HoF I watched, but thought it was a brilliant film.

Spinal Tap - glorious.

Eternal Sunshine, Blade Runner and the Thing - all fantastic.


Great list, Rawls - thanks a lot for organising it. I've got so many more films to add to my watch-list now.

Far too many for me to comment on so I won't even try but I'm overjoyed that Plan 9 made the top 100, just shame it didn't make the top 10. It's better than the film that takes the top spot.

When I finally go through the figure out how many I haven't seen I wonder what percentage will be unobtainable?

I needed to get a new copy of it sent to me, and I was skipping through the chapters just to check it was working and one chapter basically opened with a cry of something like "That's the biggest pussy I've ever seen!". I was helpless for about five minutes.

Nothing there is unobtainable, you just can't pop down the shops and pick up some of them. The full 500 is in the opening post if you want to go through and check what you've seen.

Out of the top 25, I've never seen Stalker and The Holy Mountain so they've been added to my must-see list.

Two of my favourite films of all time, hope you enjoy.

Now that this is over, would there be any interest in a spin-off poll? I was thinking of running another year of the horror poll, since it's been over a year since the last one, but a weird cinema one interests me. A poll which would not only allow horror films, but sci-fi and cult oddities as well.
