I love many of the ones already mentioned, particularly the Clint pair and Death Wish. Now I'll toss out a few more low-brow choices (this is, after all, "favorites"...not necessarily "best"...right? Posted Image)

Mad Max

I Spit On Your Grave

The Last House On The Left

Young Guns

Friday The 13th
(the original, when it was Mom...not Jason...knocking off the happy campers; spoiler-tagged just in case there's anybody on the planet who actually hasn't seen this one by now)


Theater Of Blood

Orca, The Killer Whale
