Hi,

"Poll Suggestion" is not necessary in your list title, only here in the thread.

You should also add a link in your list that leads back here. Copy this:

How about a battle between only three of them- The Lost Boys”, “Fright Night”, and “Fright Night 2” - And forget the rest because the other three are not worth mentioning?

Hello again, groovyvic. If you want to know the URLs of the IMDb user account profiles of FYC offerers, then feel free to ask each person exactly that. You can then determine the alphanumeric identifier that begins with "ur" in the URL and use it in the markup of the list description as well as the list item descriptions, by enclosing the identifier in a tag as like [link=ur1000000], to use the founder of IMDb as an example.

I just checked out The Hunger and it's not my favourite on the list but definitely worth watching

I'd pick Monster Squad, except vampires are not the only (or majority) supernatural creatures in it.

U right, I decided to include it since Dracula is the leader of the pack who summons the other monsters, and the diary they use to try and beat the monsters is about Van Helsing the vampire hunter. Reading the IMDB synopsis, Dracula is by far the most significant monster.

It's worth noting that Dracula is a very special vampire. In most depictions, he is considerably sorcerer-like, whereas vampires in general are not. In the 1992 adaptation, he can transform into not only a bat but also a wolf and a mass of rats, possibly other mammalian forms as well. It may have been the Twilight novels to introduce the idea that the power of suggestion is more common of a vampire trait.

My vote would go to Near Dark. It's definitely worth mentioning.

Near Dark is my pick too, by a slim margin over The Lost Boys and Fright Night. Take away the soundtracks, and Near Dark has the best content in my opinion (but not by much)

Vampire's Kiss (1988) is magnificently odd.

One of the reasons I love polls is the fact that they constantly bring something new to the table!

Hi, Silitonga. With a lot of familiar faces (particularly emerging teen idols), The Lost Boys definitely seems to have had the most exposure. (It also airs on television a lot.) Your feedback is an important insight that could be helpful for anticipating the "winner" of the poll.

The Lost Boys will probably win since it has from about 2 to 10x more votes than each of the other movies (suggesting more people have seen it). Sadly polls often go somewhat in order of # of votes (if the ratings are similar). My guess is The Lost Boys #1, Fright Night #2, and Monster Squad might be number 3 over Near Dark because it might eat up a lot of votes from non-horror fans

Hi and welcome to the poll board. :)

May I suggest one edit? (It's below in bold.)
