Waiting for the rest of the poll, only one of the current list got my vote so far.

After Dark is missing, I musta missed the prepoll.

Agreed. After Dark is worth a look – certainly more so than Abbot & Costello.

I couldn't forgive 30 Days of Night for two errors:
1. the entire premise of Barrow, Alaska, being dark for 30 days is nonsense.
2. the "fancy film magic" to make the film look "more like the comic" had the nauseating side effect of making the lovely Melissa George look like she had a skin disease.
I'm one of the few people who liked the sequel better (30 Days of Night: Dark Days), as it had great atmosphere, a great vampire queen, and Kiele Sanchez pulled the role off perfectly.

Where is the "No Opinion" option?

I chose 3 simply because there was no "I don't like horror" option. 3 is a simple name so I like it for the simplicity in its name.

"30 Days" was one of the stupidest movies I have seen in a long time. What was up with the ending:
The Hero infects himself so he can fight the vampires on equal terms. he kills ONE OF THEM, the other just wander off (and he lets them!), and he sits down to die horribly in the rising sun which was going to come up in about two minutes one way or another!
Plus, my all-time favorite horror movie cliche:
Hero makes a craft/tech roll to come up with a way to kill the horrible, unstopable monster(s).
The plan either succeeds to some lesser capacity, or fails for some identifiable and fixable reason. Either way, Hero doesn't bother trying again, even though the plan would work again, and there is no better option available.
And how do you steal EVERY CELL PHONE in town? Even a small town. Even if you knew exactly where they ALL were. That's too outlandish even for Scooby Doo.
Sorry, rant over. I had to come to terms with that. My Spirit Animal ran away from home.

And I'm saving my vote for "Love at First Bite". You gotta love an undead Creature of the Night the hue of my coffee table.

Where is the none of these option? I guess you could change the disqualified option to none of these.
|TunnelRat ||28 Jun 2012 2:30 p.m. PST|
Where is the 'other' or 'no opinion' options.
In fact – better still – where is the 'Who gives a ?'

got to love the folks who "HATE" a poll topic but will spend a minute or two of thier lives posting about it!

If anything, these polls do tend to serve a purpose, in that it opens discussion on trivia and pop culture.
