Edgar Allan Poe
Vincent Price
Stephen King (or H.P. Lovecraft)

- No big surprises there, but the 1st 3 should be that much of a surprise. If there's no reason to vote for King, I'll go with my alternate - Lovecraft.

David - thanks for participating. King is the first one in the Hall, so no longer in need of votes. Your post prompted me to go and edit the initial post to make it a bit more clear where we are at this point. I try to update the list every afternoon, so will add your vote in along with the others tomorrow afternoon.

We had a bit more activity in the last 24, thanks to everyone who voted.

Edgar Allan Poe is the man right now setting his sights on the Hall now at 16.
Karloff showing his age, slows enough for Vincent Price to catch up, both now 75% of the way to the Hall at 15.
H.P. Lovecraft had a very good day, surging past the halfway point to 12.
Bela Lugosi is next with 9.
Richard Matheson, & Vampira move up one to 8.
Lon Chaney Sr. suddenly finds himself alongside George Romero now both with 7.
John Carpenter, Clive Barker, & Rod Serling are all tied with 5

Seeing Vampira holding her own with the boys made me want to find out more about her. While it doesn't sound like the highest quality of documentaries, I've added Vampira The Movie to my rental queue. The interview with Maila (Vampira) sounds very interesting.

Derdnik - if you don't mind me asking, since you've been her main supporter up to this point what is it about Vampira that makes her Hall of Fame worthy?

I feel that Vampira deserves induction as she is widely recognized as the first TV Horror Host. She blazed the trail for countless other hosts, including:

Marvin
Morgus
Selwin
Zacherley
Bill "Chilly Billy" Cardille
Bob Wilkins
The Cool Ghoul
Deadly Earnest
Professor MacCarb
Ghoulardi
Moona Lisa
Sammy Terry
Selwin
Sir Graves Ghastly
Superhost
Vegas Vampire
Big Chuck and Lil' John
Bob Wilkins
The Bowman Body
Count Gore de Vol
Count Scary
Crematia Mortem
Dr. Creep
Doctor Madblood
Doctor Paul Bearer
Fritz the Nite Owl
Grimsley
The Ghoul
John Stanley
Sammy Terry
Sinister Seymour
Sir Cecil Creape
Svengoolie
Vincent Price
A. Ghastlee Ghoul
Al "Grampa" Lewis
Bob Wilkins
Count Floyd
Count Gore de Vol
Count Scary
Crematia Mortem
Dr. Paul Bearer
Fritz the Nite Owl
Count Norlock
Sammy Terry
Son of Ghoul
Stella, The Man-eater From Manayunk
Son of Svengoolie/Svengoolie
Count Gore de Vol
The Crypt Keeper
Dr. Gangrene
Dr. Sarcofiguy
Maxwell Truth, Bird and Zelda
Ernst-Hugo Järegård
Baron Von Porkchop
Count Gore de Vol
Dr. Gangrene
Doc Mock
Dr. Sarcofiguy
Gunther Dedmund
Jami Deadly
Karlos Borloff
Penny Dreadful XIII
Rob Zombie
Baron Von Porkchop
Count Gore de Vol
Dr. Gangrene
Gunther Dedmund
Mr. Lobo
And of course, Elvira - Mistress of the dark.

You can see the opening of the Vampira show here:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=gs0ehPgyD3U

As a fan of the Horror Host I feel that an induction is needed because, Im sure many would agree (or should I say hope), that this type of presentation of Horror movies brought them into the average persons living room and the humorous presentation made the films a little less intimidating for younger viewers (such as myself) which helped to create multiple generations of genre fans. That being said my votes for today are:

Vampira
Bela Lugosi
Vincent Price

Or, one could always argue Martin Landau's (Portraying Bela Lugosi in "ED Wood") point,"I think shes a hottie. Look at those Juggs!" :)

My vote(s) today have to go to

1) Mr Clive Barker
2) David Cronenburg - deserves a place for videodrome alone
3) Geroge Romero - still the big dog daddy of the Zombie genre.

Derdnik - Great response, thanks! That is quite a list. I only recognize a handful of those names. Svengoolie is the one I know best as he is still doing his thing weekly over the Chicago airwaves.

Without these three, the horror genre may not even exist.

Thanks much for voting everyone! Here's the daily recap of our leaders:

Vincent Price catches Poe as both close in on the Hall with 17.
Boris Karloff is right behind at 16.
H.P. Lovecraft hanging at 12.
Bela Lugosi up one and now halfway to the Hall.
George Romero is our mover of the week as he stops to chat with Vampira as they approach the halfway point with 9 each.
Lon Chaney Sr. and Richard Matheson follow with 8 a piece.
John Carpenter and Clive Barker are a couple steps back at 6.

This seems like an appropriate group, although I must admit that I always found Vincent Price too campy.

I'd love it if there could be some kind of horror jam session like they have at the Rock HOF inductions.

Campy? The Abominable Dr Phibes? He was the best!!

We must diverage in opinion on this one. I thought that "Phibes" movie was awful. I think I have blocked it from my memory, but I remember hating it.

MattT says:
I'll never understand how campy is a bad thing. Price is great in The Raven, Comedy Of Terrors, The Fly, House On Haunted Hill, The Tingler, The Last Man On Earth, Witchfinder General, Dr. Phibes, Theater Of Blood...

Hmmm... What would be their respective instrument of choice at this hypothetical jam session? Stephen King on lead guitar, Poe on bass, maybe Boris on the drums? The versatile Lon Chaney can play mostly any intrument I'm sure. I was thinking of Vampira shaking a tambourine, but that seems sexist, so maybe she plays bass. Carpenter writes music, I'm sure he can handle keyboards. Clive Barker on 2nd lead guitar, Romero and/or Matheson on rhythm guitar, and then H.P. Lovecraft sans instrument standing in the corner looking a bit like he's ready for this jam to be over.

Oops forgot Vincent Price! Maybe he shakes the tambourine.
