Two choices that, sadly, I'm anticipating will lose.

I actually think that Jaws is a better movie than The Thing, but Jaws is not a horror movie, and doesn't belong in this poll.

I wrote a 10 page essay in University about why JAWS IS a horror film, despite people thinking it is not - it's got all the genre trappings of a horror flick even though it's not what you'd typically regard as horror. I got an A+

Re: Horror Tournament Round #6/FINAL 4

I'm not sure if I'll be able to vote. Love all four films here. Jaws is perhaps my favorite film of all-time, but The Thing fits "horror" much better.

I guess I'd be happy no matter what the results here, hoping the match-up #2 winner wins overall.
