I love both these 80's B grade Horror movie franchises, but I just can't decide which I like more. Which series was your favorite...Ash or Charley/Peter Vincent?

No contest! Clatto Verata Nicto! (anyone know where this expression came from? A little trivia here, no googling! :) )

I feel as though I am but the lone fright night supporter. Le sigh.

Nah...I like Fright Night too. The only thing that saved the Evil Dead series was Army of Darkness. The first two movies, in my opinion, are really bad.

Dream Works was suppose to be remaking the Fright Night series in 2009, but I haven't heard of any release dates.

Yep, the original (haven't bothered to watch the remake) The Day The Earth Stood Still. Instructions, which, as far as I know, no one has ever translated, to the robot Gorth after Clatto has been shot.

Correct, actually you can hear Keanu whisper it to the robot in the re-make as well. :D

That's the worst joke I believe i've ever heard. Can you really type that with a straight face? The Evil Dead films (as well as the first two Hellraiser films and the 1980s Thing) are the only films to ever scare the crap out of me.

I stand by my words. Sorry to hurt your feelings and everything, but I think the first two Evil Dead movies were really bad. Bruce is one of my favorite B Stars, and I love Army of Darkness, but in all I like the Fright Night films better.

What's Hellraiser have to do with this poll?
