    I thought that this year it should take the form of a poll. Please note that I am excluding any of the more recent franchises, like Saw and Paranormal Activity, as I am old and cantankerous, but feel free to post your favorite in the comments. Also, a couple of the options are ringers, and if you select one of these you will be mocked sans merci.

    I'd rather pretend that Exorcist 2 - 4 don't exist.

    Edit: on the other hand I am kicking myself for forgetting about The Omen.

    Exorcist 3 was great.

    Well are you asking us to vote for the best horror franchise or just the best first film in a horror franchise?

    Best first film in a franchise. Most franchises suck donkey balls even when the original rocked.

    Besides, there's only one correct answer to "best horror franchise ever".

    Don't you like the AvP movies? If so, your vote will be discarded like a Republican voter registration form in B'more.

    Edit: that moment in E3 when we see the possessed dude with the torso shears rocked.

    No, you're thinking Neo, and Exorcist III was written by Blatty. Not sure what you're saying about B'more though.

    Also, your poal options are colossal fail.

    He wrote the last couple of turds in that franchise, so that doesn't carry the weight you seem to think it does.

    Whoever voted for Leprechaun, congratulations. You have selected the worst piece of shit ever to carry the horror film banner, and you have revealed yourself to have the worst taste imaginable. You probably drive a pimped out Ford Aspire, eat mayonnaise sandwiches on Wonder Bread, and look forward with anticipation to the next Jos. A. Banks "3 for 1" sale so that you can stock up on clean underwear.

    I voted Halloween but only because you omitted The Exorcist and Suspiria.

    Still, III was pretty damn good IMO. A nice follow up, now if we can just forget Heretic ever happened.

    It gets points for featuring Patrick Ewing, and it's not a total shitfest, but I'd hardly call it good.

    I always found Suspiria boring, but the last few minutes are great.

    If the question is "what is your favorite film that is of the horror genre?" I would probably have to go with the Omen, the Shining, or Cemetery Man, although the last one is more of an existential post-modern comedy.

    You, sir, have excellent taste. Suspiria is a good nomination, but I'm on the fence about whether a trilogy counts as a franchise. If Argento sells the rights to Paramount so they can crank out a dozen crapfests, on the other hand...
