    Round 1, Match 1

    SCANNERS

    VS.

    SPIDER


    My vote: I love Spider, but its one of David's lesser films IMO, while Scanners is one of his very best. I vote Scanners.
     
  3. Another vote for Scanners!

    By the way Cujo, I agree. Cronenberg is awesome! :)

    Great idea, Cujo! THE BROOD better win! ;)

    Anyway, I'll abstain for this round-- never saw SPIDER.

    Dude, your favorite Cronenberg film is gonna win nonetheless, so why bother? You're the judge and jury.
    There is one plus, I guess...You did impress RyanPC, so you've got that going for you...which is nice.

    Numania, quit being a dick and get off my case. You obviously don't understand internet messages, which is the reason smilies were invented. If you have something against me, why not just refrain from saying anything at all about me rather than trying to piss me off?

    Are we voting or fighting? If we are voting, then I vote for Scanners. I love Spider mind you, but not nearly as much as Scanners. It was my favorite Cronenberg movie until Crash came along and took that spot away. There are not enough words for how much I love that movie.

    Uh, I did this same tournament as well as a a huge horror tournament at the HTF a little over a year ago, and my favorite Cronenberg film and horror film didn't win either of those torunaments. The votes make the winner, not me. Guess you've never seen one of these tournaments.

    Spider. Not seen Scanners in ages, and never bothered with the DVD.

    Scanners blows Spider straight out of the running with a 7-1 domination.

    Round 1, Match 2

    NAKED LUNCH

    VS.

    VIDEODROME


    My vote: While Naked Lunch is a brilliant adaptation of the novel, Videodrome is my favorite Cronenberg film, so I must vote for it. LONG LIVE THE NEW FLESH!!!
