As b_e says it's each to their own.

Personally anything i would put in the horror list won't be on the sci-fi list.

Star Wars, Star Trek's, Matrix's, Star Crash's etc - I don't need to put Frankenstein movies in there.

But isn't Shivers basically to do with an experiment about replacing an organ with a parasite, that's pretty sci-fi inmo.
But i get what you mean.
Although shouldn't that mean we should take Alien out the horror list?

Alien is a classic hidden threat horror film that's set on a space ship rather than a house. The other films in the series are purely sci-fi.

Sorry, i don't want this to go round in circles, as i said it's purely each to their own.

I just feel if everyone is going to vote for films they put in the horror poll it's a waste of time. Especially as there's so much other sci-fi out there.

I'd still say Alien's more sci-fi than horror.
Dem goes off to get his shotgun.
I'll keep one eye open tonight.

I'd also class Jaws as a freak of nature rather than horror.

You do know i'm deliberately winding you up now Dem.

In all honesty great work with the poll, i'll try to get my sci-fi list sorted soon.
i will probably lean towards the 50's stuff myself. Does 1984 count as it's not specifically scientific?

Get lost!!

As the classic dystopian view of the future i think it may count.

I've never seen it.

I have listed 70 so far it may take me a bit longer to get it to 50 and then put them in order. Hope to have it finished tomorrow afternoon.

It's pretty downbeat, but in my mind is classic sci-fi.
Never seen the bbc version tho, its either Cushing or Pleasance keep meaning to check it out.
Still the film with John Hurt is pretty good i think.
