You knew it was coming. With Halloween rearing it's ugly head in a week or so, this fortnight's poll had to be horror films. Yes, it's a ludicrously widespread field this time so it was insanely difficult to pick just a handful of films - I used IMDB's list of most highly rated horrors and took out a few that I didn't think were full on horror enough and added one or two. I'm sure everyone has some alternative picks though, so feel free to add them in the comments section.

    I went for Texas Chainsaw. There are a couple of films I prefer (Jaws is one of my all time favourite films), but for pure unadulterated horror I felt that Texas Chainsaw affected me most.

      I can’t choose favorites very easily. But I am more likely to sit down and watch Night of the Living Dead if I am flipping channels than anything else. TCM is so… tiring to watch. Even 35 years later it is so brutal, and so nerve wracking it is not something I can just relax and watch.

    Very tricky. Ringu probably had the biggest effect on me (THAT moment), Texas was probably the most terrifying, Alien is the most fun but Exorcist is just the best film… Exorcist!

    For pure sustained terror over two hours it’s The Shining all the way I’m afraid. A very good set of nominees, though.
