Halloween was on my list, Clockwork Orange wasn't. I voted Clockwork Orange, I forgot about it while making my list.
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

Same here, though I ended up swapping out Halloween. It's been ages since I've seen CWO; been in my Netflix queue for a long time also...

will have to give this one some serious thought

just remember how violated I felt after Orange for the first time - that's one fucked up film
His eyes were clean and pure but his mind was so deranged

Halloween all the way, on of the greatest slashers of all time. Just perfect. I love CWO but, John Carpenter and this film is what made me fall in love with movies as a kid.

I'm not huge into horror films at all (I like a few classics, and an occasional here and there).
I've only Seen A Clock Work Orange once, and I barely remember it. I need to see it again, but based on what I remember, I voted for Halloween.
If we could see these many waves that flow through clouds and sunken caves...

Halloween without a doubt!   :samurai:
We are all and we are all we are
Far flung bits of Sun and bits of Stars
From the  ocean from the land from the
beginning to end
Backwards forwards back toward
we belong

and a little...

I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul
