Hi Vivien Caronna (AKA Robinshallrestoreamends),

Thank you for your poll suggestion. I really appreciate it that you've created a poll related to pre-1940 films.

1. Once someone responds to your post, only an admin can edit your post. I'm an admin and will update your posts at your request.

2. Please read:
FAQ: So You Want to Make an IMDb Poll? Here's How...
Please note: Polls are limited to a maximum of 35 choices.

3. The title of a poll suggestion should reflect the title of your list. I've updated the title of your thread to:
Poll Suggestion: Best Early Halloween/Horror Films

4. A poll suggestion consists of:
Succinct descriptive title
An optional introduction which explains the scope of your poll
An evocative question
A discussion link

5. Your poll title is fine.

6. Your poll suggestion probably doesn't need an introduction since your poll title give a good idea of the scope of your poll.

7. I recommend changing your statement:
Vote on the one you think is best!

To a question, such as:
Which of these pre-1940 horror films suitable for viewing on Halloween do you consider the best?

or

Which of these pre-1940 horror films suitable for viewing on Halloween do you would you most wish to view on Halloween?

8. Please add this text to your list for a discussion link:

Cool, I just added these. Many of these reminded me of other good ones I had forgotten about, too.

Vivien,

This advanced title search may help you identify other viable candidates:
Most Popular Horror Feature Films Released 1901-01-01 to 1939-12-31
https://www.imdb.com/search/title?title_type=feature&release_date=1901-01-01,1939-12-31&genr...

I looked through the search results and suggested films I've seen.

Keep in mind that polls are limited to 35 choices.

By the way, I'm a fan of older horror films.

Many great films, but the very best is Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, one of my favourites.

Hi Vivien and welcome to the "poll board." : )

This is a great list of some great films and a very good poll. 

My vote would probably go to 'M.'

To increase interest in your poll, once it goes live, I'd suggest putting two fairly well-known movies in the first two slots, in case it is the featured poll or even ends up on the homepage. It's certainly not necessary to do this but if you want to increase the votes that the poll would get, it would help  because featured polls display the first two options on the poll page and polls on the homepage display the first five options.

I know your list is already full, but you might consider dropping one of your current lesser-known films for Häxan. It's a very highly celebrated film.
