Gary Sherman's cult classic Death Line for me.I love Horror Express though, and Tales from the Crypt is another fave of mine from 1972.

There are far too many excellent films from the early seventies to decide on one. The same cannot be said of the late seventies where i didn't have much of a list at all.

Blood on Satans Claw
Cry of the Banshee
Horror Express
Death Line
Tales from the Crypt
The Wicker Man
The Exorcist
Return of the Evil Dead
Madhouse
Vampyres
Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue
The Vampire Lovers


All could have topped their respective years on another day.

Worth every penny.

All good choices there. Horror Rises from the Tomb is one of my favourite Naschy films, and definitely worth seeking out for fans of Spanish Horror.

This one sometimes get slated amongst horror and gialli fans alike, but it's a film I've always really enjoyed. Maybe it's the heavy gothic undertones that put some people off, but these are all part of the film's charms, for me. Neither straight giallo or gothic horror, but definitely worth watching.

"Don't Torture A Duckling" for me without a doubt: What a moving powerhouse of a giallo, as thrilling, thought provoking and controversial as ever- and Fulci's finest hour imho.

I have it in the Red Queen box set and haven't watched it yet, but plan to remedy that this week.

I have that set & have only watched both films once and, as I said, I couldn't get into to them but that was a few years ago so I think I should give them another chance.

since noone seemed to notice il stick up for PINK FLAMINGOES. in its complete form it beats hands down these modern "ultrashockers", still makes people squirm (even the guy who sat through an u/c CH recently)...oh and nae Death Line? shame, tops my list...

Thumbs up

It's good to see some love for Pink Flamingos - and what a completely twisted tale of shocking debauchery it is too. My favourite Waters film by far.

As for Death Line, I'm not a huge fan but it's definitely worth a watch.

It's true about Pink Flamingos as it is a film that really sets out to shock and does exactly that, from the old woman in the playpen to the unfortunate chicken and the infamous dog turd scene -- it's far from the easiest film to watch!
