It's a real tough choice as there were no worldwide smash hits or films that would be regarded by non-horror fans as landmark films.

However, I think my vote would also go with The Abominable Dr Phibes, with Blood on Satan's Claw in second place.

Blood on Satan's Claw for definite!

That's one of those films that I really didn't like when I saw at first, but the second viewing was something else entirely. I should really watch it again as it's been a while.

It's the atmosphere and score that does it for me, and, of course, saucy devil child sexpot, Linda Hayden.

Great topics B.E.!

LOTS of cracking films from '71 but joint favourites from this year would have to be THE DEVILS,STRAW DOGS and of course A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.

"Blood on Satan's Claw" wins hands down for me on this one. It's disturbing, sexy and weird. I groove on the whole wyrd England vibe of the film. For me, it's far more folky and pagan than "The Wicker Man" which I always watch from a Christian point of view. There is something very much of the soil and earth in BOSC, that for me makes it both almost mythic and very real at the same time.

I also like it's anti youth point of view which is similar in tone to the underlying theme of "Psychomania" where by the young people must be suppressed at all costs or society as we know it will will be over turned. The irony being that both films are obviously aimed at the very people they ultimately fear.

Fright is a nice little film. Very underrated, plus it contains the gorgeous Susan George - so that's one reason to watch it right there! Plus, it was certainly an influence on later films such as When a Stranger Calls.
