Good to see Stephen King having more then a few characters up on the list.

Sex Machine from Dusk til Dawn will always be a favourite of mine along with the veitnam vet when he starts on his Nam story.

Yeah, the Viet Nam vet. Fred "The Hammer" Williamson, former DB of the KC Chiefs. Also did some chop sockey movies.

I always thought Vincent Price's Dr Phibes movies were a great example of horror acting. Theatre of Blood gets all the acclaim, but I just don't particularly care for the movie. But Vinnie was great in any role.

A couple of film series missing here. The Subspecies series, very spooky and The Dr. Phibes films.

Ohh yeah. The Dr Phibes films. Why didn't I think of that?

How do you put Linda Blair at #10 and Boris Karloff #1? Blair should be #1 in a runaway. I wouldn't even put Karloff's Frankenstein in the top 100.

Okay, Doctor. You're half right. I'll agree about Linda Blair. A physically and psycologically demanding and phenomenal performance for anyone of any age, but unbelievably brilliant for a child.

Karloff's Frankenstein's monster was a seminal performance that provided the benchmark for all horror films to come. He belongs.

Jamie Lee Curtis is still living off of her performance in Halloween. That movie ushered in a new kind of thriller, and her performance created a new kind of victim/heroine.

Good point, Rose McGowan from Scream:




I'm hearing her on my TV 7 nights a week in Charmed.

Ok you wanna talk victim/heroine, I'm going with Adrienne Barbeau (Escape from New York, The Fog...) because of her obvious acting ability.
