I just finished reading Good to Great for work, a book that I thought would bore me to tears. Instead, i was thoroughly engrossed, and even inspired, by it. In the book, they talk about how good companies became great companies. One of the things that made companies great was adhering to what they call the Hedgehog Principle, wherein you try to discover what you can be best at and stick to it, without getting distracted by other things. It is a little more complicated than that, but that is the gist of it. Do what you can be great at, do it consistently.

Now, it has always been a dream of mine to make my own horror movies. I think great horror movies are few and far between, but I think someone with the right passion could find a way to make more. So, I have a few questions for all of you horror movie fans.

What are your favorite top ten horror movies? What movies creeped you out the first time, and stuck in your mind? Do they continue to do so on repeated viewings? What made them so great, in your opinion? This is serious research here, not just a wank off. There are no right or wrong answers, just opinions. I kind of want to get a feel for what the real movie viewing public likes rather than what the critics or movie studios say we should like. Anyone who could help me by responding to this sure would be helpful!

`What are your favorite top ten horror movies?

Don't know that I can come up with ten, but I have a couple.

1) The Keep.

I like Scott Glenn. The Tangerine Dream soundtrack helped.

2) The Thing (the Kurt Russel / John Carpenter version)

I learned literally what it means to view on the edge of your seat.

3) Invaders from Mars (the 1950s version, my age might have been a factor)

4) Resident Evil wasn't bad ...
