Five days and two dozen movies into AMC Fearfest, you’ve certainly got enough information to start asking yourself one simple question: what’s the best flick in Fearfest 2010? Your answer is important because you’re part of the ever-growing jury for the Palme d’Gore — an award given to the greatest scary movie in the fest. Weighing in on this question is part of your job as a viewer. (Fun job, no?)

The field is filled with iconic nominees. James Cameron’s nightmarish Aliens (which brilliantly blurs the line between horror and sci-fi), Stanley Kubrick’s Shining (which made one man’s descent into hell a bit of high art), and Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later… (which pretty much redefined the zombie flick).
