It's an awesome year! Looking forward, to seeing your list!

I did it but finally it's very different than yours. you've selected some thrillers, some sci-fi and some fantasy movies (Dead Calm, Deep Star Six, Ghostbusters) and a black comedy (The Burbs) who are not listed as horror movies in the book of horror. : )

Off hand, I am aware of it, but I decided to kind of go against the grain, and include fantasy, black comedy, sci fi and thrillers, to blance things out.
