    I wonder if their may be just a touch of bias here with The Inkeepers. Also is The Ring mentioned here the Gore Verbinski version?

    I still need to visit Eraserhead but from this section i would say Seven is the best, it certainly has the most rewatchability.
    The Devil’s Backbone was just awful, i just don’t get the del Toro thing, at best his films are ok and i’d probably put Pacific Rim at the top.

    I consider Seven a crime thriller, though, and not a horror movie. Maybe that’s just me. Certainly, it’s good.

    Eraserhead is fantastic! A David Lynch masterpiece.

      I’ve just put it on my LoveFilm queue, i remember growing up always been fascinated with the cover and thinking it looked really weird.

    Andy, you are dead wrong about Del Toro. Screw to each their own, that’s just fact! 😛

    Personally, I’m glad Devil’s Backbone is here, though it should be higher up. That’s an incredible movie, though admittedly I am partial to Del Toro. Not totally, Hellboy was just a shrug for me.

    As for Seven, I think it’s emphasis on gore and atmosphere are pretty clearly horror, even though it also leans heavily on procedural and noir elements. The ending’s too silly and supernatural to be anything but horror, though, and is why I personally think Seven’s overrated. Not to bash on horror as a genre, I love it, but that ending’s simply bad and leaves a lot to be desired.
