Lucio Fulci always feels like a guilty pleasure. All of his films seem to be flawed, but there are always these unexpected surprising moments that catch me off guard and creep me out. One thing I always appreciated about Fulci is that rather than use the quick cut to vaguely imply but not really show what is going on, Fulci lingers on the most gruesome of moments. The Beyond is my favorite film of his, but I rewatched House by the Cemetery the other night and after getting used to the low budget, poorly dubbed, 1970's vibe, I was creeped out more than once and the ending especially impressed me. Fulci never had a problem finishing things on the downbeat.

From the leaderboard:

Rick Baker, make-up and special effects artist extraordinaire is now only 1 vote away from the Hall with 19. We await Deacon D to induct this legend.

Lamberto Bava and Dean Koontz hold at 14, as Tom Savini catches up.

Ira Levin waits at 11, while Roger Corman and Charles Addams make their first appearance on the leaderboard matching stride.

Didn't even need to update the leaderboard last night, as I was the only one walking the halls of The Hall. Deacon D and I seem to be the only two participating in this exercise these days, so I am thinking the least we can do is fill up the 5th class with some dignity and then let The Hall gather dust until maybe some day, interest is rekindled. Eight spots left, with 7 on the leaderboard.

The question now becomes, if this is the last class inducted to our Horror Hall of Fame, which 8 of the remaining 58 nominees truly deserve to be inducted?

Craigpwilson! Welcome to The Hall!

Both excellent choices! I fear we are down to our last legs here at The Hall, but if we stop at 50 inductees, I honestly have no problem with Blatty and Friedkin making it, but out of the 8 spots left (and really just 7 because Rick Baker will deservedly get a spot tomorrow I would think), suddenly the process gets much more interesting.

If I was forced to pick 7 right now, I would go with:

Roger Corman
Charles Addams
Tom Savini
Dean Koontz

and then it gets tough...

Robert Bloch
David Cronenberg
and...
