Alien's an interesting addition since only the first one was a true horror film. Aliens was a Sci-Fi action movie with some horror elements thrown in and i'm not sure what I would classify Alien 3 as. Let's just forget that 4 ever happened.

The problem is real horror hounds would tear your poll to pieces. I was tempted to show this poal to my gf but decided against it b/c I didn't want to hear ranting and raving for 6 hours straight before her having to watch the 1950 movie with the giant tarantula just to calm down.

How can you classify Alien as horror but not Alien 3??? Not going to argue whether Alien 3 was good or not (I think it is, but I realize most hate it), but I don't get how you can't classify 3 as horror.

Ok, I'd probably agree with you there.

Still think it's a interesting one to have on this list considering how many times the franchise changed genre.

I vaguely remember some movie from the seventies featuring a giant tarantula that they built on a VW Beetle, and at one point you can literally see the car beneath the critter lol8[1].gif

The Howling series experienced a pretty significant drop off, but goddamn if that first one wasn't pretty weird and great and kind of slutty and sexy when I saw it at like age 8.

I always thought Wolfen should have been made into a series. I legitimately like the movie, not in any ironic way.

We've covered this elsewhere, but I like all 4 of the "original" Alien films. In my book, Aliens is the only non-horror film in the franchise.

That triggered a memory and I thought it might be Nude for Satan. Although N4S does feature a terrible giant spider there's no VW underneath it.

You consider Alien Resurrection a horror film?

Would Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS count as a horror series? They were all pretty terrible, and Ilsa wasn't really a werewolf, but they were great in that "naked chicks in prison getting abused" way.

Okay, important query.

Incubus


vs Sucubus




Discuss.

It used to work well on goth chicks in high school/college. Not much use now.

Important fact, Incubus is the only film to have all dialogue in the language of Esperanto. If that doesn't tell you William Shatner is the greatest actor of his generation I don't know what to tell you.
