When I first read this I thought you were insane and totally biased towards argento- then I realised how they were initial and not your grades for each film Laugh

I've seen a few argentos but for me carpenter is still the king of stylised horror. Both have been copied but none have been surpassed in their prime.

Halloween still to this day holds up as one of the greatest slasher/ horror films ever.

I seem to recall it was filmed as the "babysitter killer" and just happened to be set on Halloween before they shot additional footage to tie it in. The studio screenings were a flop until john added his iconic soundtrack.

As you can see, I love and know about the film like the back off hand!

What did you think of the Prince of Darkness..........

Thought it was a good idea but the production values were horrible...

Missed opportunity..

Its one of the few that I havent seen Truss. I enjoyed the Mouth of Madness (possibly his last good film).

If you had to name the best three films by any director, I think that the Fog, Halloween and The Thing are about as good a selection out there (certainly within the horror genre and possibly outwith too). Actually, I will start a thread on it!
