Now adding to the fun and list-making is the site, No Ripcord, which has anted-up its own tabulation of nineteen "favorite" genre movies.
This list, compiled by editor and film scholar George Booker, includes such favorites as John Carpenter's The Thing (1981), the Cronenberg remake of The Fly (1986) and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974).
