1. Shaun of the dead is the only one I saw
I thought it was a riot.

What about Slumber Party Massacre II?

2. "Saw"
Cary Elwe's meltdown in the run-up to the movies "climax" should establish him as a comic genius.

8. The Toxic Avenger gets my vote.
I use to work for an environmental lobbying group & we would always show that after work to new employees.

34. Watch it and then watch "Ed Wood"
"Movies were his passion. Women were his inspiration. Angora sweaters were his weakness. "

What a double feature! Explains a lot too. ;)

6. Bruce Campbell's Army of Darkness
Evil Dead II was good, but has there ever been a better movie line than "Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun."

37. I love Killer Klowns
It's alternately very creepy and very funny.

For me, the creepiest moment was when one of the Klowns was trying to lure a little girl out of a restaurant. Kids love klowns and you could see on her face that she would go anywhere with him.

41. I have the DVD,
the Director's Commentary track is great. There is a lot more going on in the movie than first meets the eye.

10. "Near Dark"
from the '80's had its moments. A roving ragtag band of vampires. In one scene, they run afoul of the locals in a redneck bar. Chaos ensues.
Rent it.

35. all-right!!!...another fan of near dark.........
i thought i was the only person on earth who had ever seen the film....a different twist on vampire movies for sure...a gem in the rough with a great cast to boot, including "alien" alumni lance henriksen, bill paxton and Jenette Goldstein...the bar scene alone is reason to rent it...chock full of some interesting one liners too. a criminally under-rated vampire movie IMHO.......

17. How about "An American Werewolf In London?"
Or the made-for-TV gem from 1973, "The Night Strangler," with Darren McGavin as journalist Carl Kolchak? If you haven't seen these two horror comedies, you really should!

20. I voted for Evil Dead, but....
...I have to say that "Deadly Friend" features the best decapitation by basketball in the history of cinema.

24. Maximum Overdrive was so bad it was almost genius
I don't think it was supposed to be funny, but I laughed so hard I nearly peed myself. The scene with the coke machine wiping out the little leage team was "OMFG" hilarious.

26. How can you possibly leave Dead Alive off the list
I mean good grief. A man locked in a room with 30 zombies and only a lawn mower to defend himself with? Evil Ratmonkies? The entire Freudian implications throughout? I kick zombie ass for the lord?
