The 1991 spooky multi-Oscar winner was followed in second place by Simon Pegg's 2007 police comedy Hot Fuzz, in the poll of 3,000 people by the Jameson Cult Film Club.

Teen comedy Ferris Bueller's Day Off, starring a young Matthew Broderick was third in the survey, followed by more murderous drama, The Godfather trilogy.

The interesting mix of what film viewers considered cult favourites saw war time classic The Great Escape and sci-fi spectacular Bladerunner placed joint fifth.

Also to make the top ten in the poll were horror films The Shining, The Alien Trilogy and Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho.

Screenings of cult horror films Quatermass And The Pit, Amityville Horror and Psycho are taking place over Halloween weekend and the Jameson Cult Film Club events continue until March 2011.
