    This is a tournament between all of italian director Dario Argento's horror films. Winners will be decided by the film with the most votes by the time I feel like starting the next round (which will be pretty quick). The films are:
    - Bird With The Crystal Plumage
    - Cat O' Nine Tails
    - Four Flies On Grey Velvet
    - Deep Red
    - Suspiria
    - Inferno
    - Tenebre
    - Phenomena
    - Demons
    - Demons 2
    - Opera
    - Two Evil Eyes
    - Trauma
    - The Stendhal Syndrome
    - Phantom Of The Opera
    - Sleepless (Non Ho Sonno)
    First Round: Match 1
    Bird With The Crystal Plumage
    vs.
    Sleepless (Non Ho Sonno)

    To make the tournament work, you need two more films. Just throw in the Dario Argento written and produced films Demons and Demons 2 and you'll have yourself a tournament. [​IMG]
    Since I have never seen Sleepless (thanks to the shmucks at Artisan), I have to abstain.

    Bird With The Crystal Plumage - 0 Votes
    Sleepless (Non Ho Sonno) - 0 Votes
    So It looks as though we have a tie here, and it's all thanks to Artisan's full screen release of Sleepless. Bird With The Crystal Plumage was his first film, likely more popular, and more people have seen it so I'm advancing it to the next round because I have power.
    First Round: Match 2
    Cat O' Nine Tails
    vs.
    Phantom Of The Opera

    I've never seen an Argento film (yes, Matthew, eventually I will), but I have to say the titles are really cool. [​IMG]

    The Stendhal Syndrome - 0 Votes
    Four Flies On Grey Velvet - 0 Votes
    I'm advancing Stendhal Syndrome based on the fact nobody has seen Four Flies on Grey Velvet it seems like and Stendhal would have the better chance at winning. Anyway, on to the next match.
    First Round: Match 4
    Deep Red
    vs.
    Trauma
    I'm gonna start it off with a vote for Deep Red

    Deep Red easily and not surprisingly defeats Trauma. Now, if only Anchor Bay would get off their lazy asses and send me a corrected copy of Deep Red I might be happy.
    First Round: Match 5
    Suspiria
    vs.
    Two Evil Eyes
    I vote for Suspiria
