While the 70's may have the edge of the more quality flicks, the 80's was the slasher heyday. And I do love my slashers.

I'm all with the 1970's. Yes, I love slashers, and there were quite a few in the 1980's, but who can forget the classics from the 1970's? Three on a Meathook, Let's Scare Jessica to Death, The House That Dripped Blood, Blood Freak, The Wizard of Gore, etc.

Man, this is such a close race its like pick your favorite boob: left or right!

I went with 70's, because simply my top two fave horror flicks are from that era (Jaws & Halloween).
