Hello there, Fun list, actually made me laugh as some of my favorite filmmakers are on your list, but you picked some of my least favorite films of theirs (not that they are great films... they are, but for each i would have picked other films )

for instance Elephant Man- David Lynch- I would put Eraserhead, Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive, Wild At Heart, Blue Velvet and Fire Walk with me over Elephant Man.

Barry Lyndon (which is a very underrated and almost forgotten film!!) By Stanley Kubrick- i would have put Killers Kiss, Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange, and Full Metal Jacket above it though.

Fanny And Alexander- Again, great film, and I am a Bergman Freak...Being an American, I had only seen the "American Theatrical release of this film for years, and thought it was blah, very overrated, then, I bought the box set and got to see the full film.. wow.. it is amazing....but I would put several of his films above F &A- Seventh Seal ( which is there), but also, Wild Strawberries, Sawdust And Tinsel, The Magician, Through a Glass Darkly, Winter Light, The Silence, Persona, Hour of the Wolf ( I'll stop there, see I am a bit of a Bergman fanatic)

and Mean Streets- another great film by Scorsese- But I would put Taxi Driver , Raging Bull and the King Of Comedy higher then Mean streets..

these lists can be great fun..

I think I'll start a list of my favorite Universal Horror films... for the first " genre list" please folks feel free to comment, or add to the list or name your own.. these will be in order of year...

1- The Cat and The Canary (1927)
2- The Man Who Laughs (1928) - I don't really consider this a Horror film but others do
3- Dracula (1931)
4-Spanish version of Dracula (1931) this film is better than the English version in almost every way....except Carlos Villarias is no Bela Lugosi!!!!
5- Frankenstein (1931)
6- The Old Dark House (1932)
7- The Invisible Man (1933)
8-The Black Cat (1934) may be the best of the Universal horror films!!
8- the Raven (1935)
9- Bride of Frankenstein (1935) If the Black Cat isn't the best.. this may be!!
10-Son Of Frankenstein (1939) last great Frankenstein (Universal) film.. the rest are fun no doubt, but not great.
11-Tower of London (1939)
12- The Wolf Man (1941)
13- Calling Dr. Death (1943) more suspense than horror.. but this is how the shift went
14- Dead Man's Eyes (1944)
15- The Creature Walks Among Us (1956) not often the third in a film series is the best, but in my opinion this time it happened.

again, feel free to criticize the list, or add to it or make your own, or even start a new Genre list....

Hello Steadman. You might elevate "Son of Frankenstein" to #1 of the Universal horror genre. Where else can you get Basil Rathbone, Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff and Lionel Atwill in the same film?

(OK, I admit "House of Frankenstein" also had George Zucco--but it was all wasted.)

Cheers.
