It was the second thing. So if you nominated Poltergeist this year, you cannot nominate it next year.

That's a pretty good idea! Of course, we don't have to wait till Oct to do one of those as a tourney too.

Looks like we're not getting any more votes here... too bad Roshiq, Villain and Ferret didn't come back. So I'll soon be laying out how different/same things were this time compared to last.

Got ya. It's a logical idea. But I myself am a bit of a purest, in that I say let the real winner win, so to speak.

One change I made was having folks pick 10 films instead of 5. I think that made a big difference. Many lesser famous films made some impressive runs. Seeing those highlighted alone was worth it. There's probably a few ways to twist the tourney up a bit.

And the Winner of the 2020 HDC Best Horror Film All-time is:

Alien (1979)




Beating The Exorcist 6-4. Exorcist won the 2016 Tournament, over Alien.

Films Alien beat in the Tourney:
The Plague of the Zombies (1966)
Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)
Quarter Final: Fright Night (1985)
Semi-Final: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
Final: The Exorcist (1973)

This year the Semi Final Matches were:
Match 1. Night of the Living Dead (1968) -- Vs -- The Exorcist (1973)
Match 2. Evil Dead II (1987) -- Vs -- Alien (1979) -- Vs -- The Thing (1982)

Interestingly, all three Match 2 films were tied, which I had to break. Very close to choosing The Thing.

In 2016 the Semi Final Matches were:
Alien (1979) -- Vs -- Jaws (1975)
The Exorcist (1973) -- Vs -- Halloween (1978)
(And Alien beat Psycho in a pre-Semi-Final match)


Quarter Final Films:

2020 ..................................................2016
Evil Dead II (1987) ..............................Jaws (1975)
Poltergeist (1982) ................................The Evil Dead (1981)
Suspiria (1977) .....................................The Shining (1980)
A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) ..........Halloween (1978)
Psycho (1960) ......................................Psycho (1960)
The Exorcist (1973) ..............................The Exorcist (1973)
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) .....The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
The Thing (1982) ..................................The Thing (1982)
Night of the Living Dead (1968) ..............Night of the Living Dead (1968)
Alien (1979) .........................................Alien (1979)

The Shinning wasn't even selected this year. Evil Dead II, Suspira and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) made big advances this year. Carnival of Souls also made a big showing. Predator was very popular, and wasn't even the tournament last year.

In 2020 these films were the top seeds, that is, films that were chosen by more than one person in the lists of Top 10s:
4 Evil Dead II (1987)
4 Night of the Living Dead (1968)
3 Alien (1979)

2 The Exorcist (1973)
2 The Thing (1982)
2 The Fly (1986)
2 Aliens (1986)
2 Halloween (1978)
2 Jaws (1975)
2 Eyes Without A Face (1959)
2 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)
2 Suspiria (1977)
2 Fright Night (1985)
2 Dawn of the Dead (1978)
2 Insidious (2010)
2 The Lost Boys (1987)
2 Friday the 13th (1980)
2 Carnival of Souls (1962)

Thanks to everyone who participated!

That was a good tournament. A lot work put in with all the images and tracking votes. Next year should be interesting. I'm glad one of my favorites won in the end this year.

A fun tournament and I got to add a few films to my watchlist.

Big tanks to sculpt for all the work.

And congratulations to Ellen Ripley and Jonesy.
