    Well, since ymdb is read only. I figure maybe we could start a thread where each person could post their Top 20 here and come back and edit it as they please. I realize I had created something similar in the horror polls, but its too cluttered, so I figured maybe this would be fun. And maybe it could even be made a sticky thread.

    Anywho, here's my newly revised Top 20

    Fuck it! I want mine colored!

    1. Dawn of the Dead (1978)
    2. Return of the Living Dead, The (1985)
    3. Evil Dead, The (1982)
    4. Pulp Fiction (1994)
    5. True Romance (1993)
    6. Blue Velvet (1986)

    8. Opera (1987)
    9. Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)
    10. Thing, The (1982)
    11. Body Double (1984)
    12. Tenebre (1982)
