Poll Results: Favorite John Carpenter Film

No doubt about this one:

The Thing

– The Thing: 14 votes
– Halloween: 9 votes
– Big Trouble in Little China: 6 votes
– Assault on Precinct 13: 3 votes
– Escape from New York: 2 votes
– They Live: 2 votes
– Christine: 1 vote
– Escape from L.A.: 1 vote
– The Fog: 1 vote
– Memoirs of an Invisible Man: 1 vote
– Prince of Darkness: 1 vote
– Starman: 1 vote
– Village of the Damned: 1 vote
– Dark Star, Ghosts of Mars, In the Mouth of Madness, Vampires and The Ward: 0 votes

The results weren’t too far off from what I expected, but I’ve gotta admit that I was hoping for more votes for They Live. Can’t argue with The Thing winning — that movie holds up remarkably well today.

This Week’s Poll: Continuing with the month-long horror poll theme, I would like to know what you consider the absolute best long-running horror franchise. I generally included only those with five or more films, and I’m asking you to take into account the whole franchise. When looked at as a whole, which one is best?

The Warning Sign news:
No weekend roundup this time. Instead, I have two announcements pertaining to this humble little blog:

1) I have had my first ever blog interview! Jeff from Just1MoreLevel was kind enough to interview me about The Warning Sign, and the full post can be found at his great gaming blog.

2) I was invited to partake in an epic Out of the Park Baseball league organized by Seamheads.com. Dubbed the “Laundry League”, there are 30 of us participating (including a handful of ex-MLB players, authors and online personalities), and we were each given a team filled with players from throughout the entire history of MLB. It’s a pretty awesome concept, and each team is stacked with guys who are rated based on the best year of their careers. I will be the Chicago White Sox. The full results of the inaugural draft can be found over at Seamheads.

While I am on the subject of discussing The Warning Sign, I would also like to invite everyone to “Like” us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. This blog has grown exponentially over the past year, and I would like to continue pushing forward in that direction. Thank you to everyone for your continued support — without all of you, none of this would exist!
