    It's been quite a while since I've seen LIW and I really don't remember it except to recall that I enjoyed it. On the other hand I loved TDB and I can't imagine LIW being better...but perhaps I should rewatch LIW before I vote.

    They are both very good and damn sad. Lady in White got to me at an earlier age though, so I love it just a bit more.

    The Devil's Backbone is a very effective film from Del Toro, his most accomplished to date. Lady in White felt like a TV movie of the week.

    Devil's Backbone is so much better, Lady In White is just average.

    To the "T", man!

    Devil's Backbone was excellent all the way through. Most of Lady felt like I was watching a ghost movie written by an eight year old pussy.

    Since The Devil's Backbone is probbaly my favorite horror film I'm pretty sure you can guess what I'm going with here. Lady In White is pretty good, but better than The Devi'ls Backbone...NO FUCKING WAY!

    I'm going Devil's Backbone here, but not by much. Lady in White seemed like a Disney movie to me, wasn't a huge fan.

    I've never seen Lady in White, but I love Devil's Backbone too much to not vote for it.
