Day of the Animals.
Why? Leslie Nelson vs a Bear!
Prophecy (1979) for the exploding sleeping bag kill.
Jaws just cuz it has it all. Some funny scenes, some scary, a great vibe and excellent characterization. I wish I could say something else as I love this genre, but Jaws still has not been topped.
For fun though, I might have to go with Shark Attack 3: Megalodon for it's special blend of stupidity and craziness. No doubt Jaws is the better film in every aspect, just SA3 is more silly fun for those times when serious isn't good.
why? piranha + wing = hilarious
Already have this blu-ray so no need to enter the contest, but just for fun, I'll go with Man's Best Friend and Strays.
TBS / TNT used to air Man's Best Friend constantly, and USA / TBS / TNT used to air Strays quite frequently as well. So I'd watch them both a lot as a kid, and both movies have held up incredibly well. Shame Strays never made it to DVD.
One of the things that is especially strong and distinct about Man's Best Friend is the way Max (the dog) is humanized, in great part because of the bond between him and Lori (Ally Sheedy). Most of these films just have evil dogs running around attacking people, but here Max is a fully developed character, and dare I say a stronger one than most of the human characters we see in movies these days. I'd be lying if I said I didn't get choked up during that last scene with him and Ally Sheedy together (the one just before the Paul Anka sequel set-up).
Jaws of course. The interesting and developed characters are just as effective as the scares, the score is extremely memorable, Spielberg in his prime is solid, there are so many great set pieces, I could go on and on. This is not only one of my favourite horror flicks, but one of my favourite films in general. A masterpiece in every shape and form.
I haven't seen too many but I dig The Killer Shrews for its low budget and cheapness. I love the setting of the isolated farmhouse with the woods nearby
Try to go with me on this one - I found the bigfoot/Sasquatch attack in Night of The Demon, especially on the motorcyclists todger, to be so silly that I could not take it seriously. I still remember it despite the decades that have passed although a masterpiece like Jaws it is not.
It would have to be Cujo for me. That dog scared the crap out of me as a kid, and I still to this day watch it at least once in October.
It's a tie between JAWS and CUJO for me as both of them affected me during childhood, and they both stand up very well today.
Such an awesome underrated and forgotten gem. Like Willard except with snakes and a surprisingly awesome synth soundtrack for a 70s movie.
30 years later, I still wont swim in the ocean because of Jaws
Definitely The Birds. I love the mixture of comedy and horror.
The original Willard scared the living crap out of me as a little kid and still makes me very uncomfortable. I've always hated rats.
Jaws for having a underwater beaver shot in a PG movie.
Night of the Lepus because it is so bad it's good.
Hitchcock's The Birds because it's a great nature run amok film AND it never explains why all the birds are attacking. It has a great feeling of isolation and the unknown.
I choose Stephen King's Cujo.
The movie may be a bit dated but the story is not.
You can have a dog (or a cat), or maybe somebody who live next to you may have a dog who.. one day... get seriously crazy. It can append everywhere.
And if i'm a Stephen King fan is because of film like Cujo, Carrie, Christine...
I saw those movies when a was a kid then start reading his books. Still the case 30 years later.
