What is your favourite horror film?

We got a range of answers but 'the grudge' 'the ring' and 'hostel' seemed the mostpopular horror films.

Doing this helped give us more of an insight and a better idea of what the public prefer to see in Horror trailers. We would receive the public's feedback and reactions, where it would enable us to produce a trailer based on the answers given and help us acheive these results.
