Re: best movies that you have seen made in the year you were born

We did this back in my zombiekeeper.com days and I don't recall a great many exceptional horror films from my year of birth (1971).  There were some minor classics, like Psychomania, Let's Scare Jessica to Death, Duel (which I personally love) and The Night Evelyn Came Out of Her Grave.  Play Misty for Me was also from '71, and while I'm a big fan, not many folks I know have seen it.  But I think the biggest or most popular horror flick from that year was The Abominable Dr. Phibes.  But even that's considered more of a camp classic than anything.  So, a decent year for horror, 1971, but nowhere near the greatest.

Non-horror, though, there were a number of certified classics.  A Clockwork Orange, Straw Dogs, The French Connection, Dirty Harry, Fiddler on the Roof, Shaft, Harold and Maude...

Re: best movies that you have seen made in the year you were born

1984 Gremlins

I've seen Play Misty for me but I didn't really like it.

Re: best movies that you have seen made in the year you were born

A few good ones from 1994:

Cemetery Man
Wes Craven's New Nightmare
In The Mouth of Madness
Needful Things
The Stand

But of course my favorite film from '94, though non-horror, is Natural Born Killers!
