What are your favorite/most influential horror flicks?
Wow thats a hard one ....when it comes to vampire flicks has to be 1987s The Lost Boys"im watching it as i wright this"..Werewolf flicks has to be American Werewolf in London..Slasher flicks out of the big 3"Nightmare on Elm St. Friday the 13th and Halloween" i have to take Friday the 13th .
