The HBA is kicking off this brand new feature by taking your votes on the Top Ten Supernatural Films! Here is how voting will take place. All votes MUST be submitted via e-mail to email@example.com, and NOT in the comments below. This will be a blind ballot with no nominations, so you are free to nominate whichever ten films you consider to be the best in supernatural Horror. You do not need to rate your submissions in order from first to last, as each vote will hold the same weight. You also do not necessarily need to submit ten nominations if you cannot think of more than a certain number of films. The hope here is to offer every film a chance to be included in the final Top Ten, and to create an organic list that is truly based on everyone's individual votes.
Voting will be closed on Tuesday, March 9th, after which the votes will be tallied and the list will appear here on the HBA homepage! We encourage everyone to participate in order to create the strongest and most accurate listing possible. Again, please do not include any possible submissions in the comments, we do not want to throw off the votes, but we look forward to reading everyone's submissions!
Edit: If you have a question as to whether or not a film qualifies as Supernatural, please e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org rather than posting it as a comment. Some films will fall into several categories, as many Gothic Horror entries will have supernatural elements, so please comment below with your thoughts on what types of films should qualify or not qualify, but not which films themselves.

Question: should possession films count?
Supernatural covers a lot of territory doesn't it? Ghosts, vampires, werewolves, mummies, possessions, psychic powers, and even many zombies would fit.
I will see how others respond, but I am thinking along the lines of ESP, ghosts, and hauntings? For me, possession begins getting into witchcraft and Satan, so I dont know how all encompassing the term should be
Yeah...supernatural can be pretty broad. I'd say stick with ghosts, hauntings, possessions, religious related films, witchcraft.
Maybe keep the vampires, werewolves, mummies, zombies out of it???
Evil Dead films? Atleast the first two?
I agree with B-Movie Becky on this one!
I think the first two Evil Dead films count in this category.
I agree with Becky, too. My list I sent in reflects this.
Supernatural refers to things out of the ordinary, things that are beyond natural. That should range from ghosts, spiritual powers, zombies, vampires, etc. This list would exclude slasher films, though, that aren't on the range of Nightmare of Elm's Street.
Also, you bastards better vote for The Innocents and I Walked With a Zombie!!! >:o
