    I forgot to mention that in each three-way matchup, the two films receiving the most votes will advance - only one of the three will be eliminated. [​IMG]
    I'll also throw out a suggestion for Ginger Snaps; you know, the werewolf movie that freaked Kissinger out! [​IMG]

    Well, my werewolf nom is between THE HOWLING and GINGER SNAPS, because they are the two ultimate werewolf films in my opinion, and with a coin flip I nominate GINGER SNAPS. Somebody better nominate THE HOWLING though, or I'll go berserk!
    Now, I really wanna nominate THE NIGHT FLIER, NEAR DARK, FRIGHT NIGHT, or BLADE for vamp films, but with only two noms I've gotta nominate my favorite zombie film of all time, DELLAMORTE DELLAMORE (aka CEMETERY MAN.
    Now I really hope someone nominates the following, so just take these as suggestions: [​IMG]
    THE HOWLING
    SILVER BULLET (I like this one better than AAWIL too)
    DOG SOLDIERS
    THE NIGHT FLIER
    NEAR DARK
    FRIGHT NIGHT
    BLADE
    DEAD AND BURIED
    DAY OF THE DEAD

    Nominating two of my favorite vampire movies:
    The Lost Boys-Kiefer Sutherland as David is one very cool and scary (and hot) vampire.
    Interview With the Vampire-Excellent and unexpectedly faithful adaptation of Anne Rice's book with top notch performances from Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Kirsten Dunst, and Antonio Banderas (who is also very hot in this movie).
    If I had just one more nomination, it would definitely go to Fright Night, but alas, I am now out of nominations.

    I fear a nomination of any Hammer Film will go largely unnoticed or encounter a run of abstentions. Regardless, no vampire subject matter should be valid without mentioning Christopher Lee. [​IMG]
    Nominate: Horror of Dracula
    Second: Bram Stoker's Dracula

    Nominate:
    Shock Waves - this is easily one of my favorite Zombie films ever. Totally atmospheric and haunting, and with performances by the lovely Brooke Adams, as well as John Carradine and Peter Cushing, how can you go wrong?
    Nosferatu the Vampyre - this is for Herzog's classic, not the original silent (which should also definitely be included in this tournament). What Herzog has done here is homage and build upon Murnau's seminal Dracula film. Kinski's Dracula, and the beautiful cinematography are the best of the vampire genre.

    The Hunger with David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve, and Susan Sarandon is another interesting vampire movie that is worth a viewing and, perhaps, a nomination.
