  1. I am happy to see Mario Bava pick up the win! I admire each director on your list,but Bava stands out in this decade because every horror film he directed in the 1960’s I feel is a freaking GREAT movie! Danger Diabolik is pretty awesome in it’s own right,too! I revisit the films of Mario Bava often! : )

  2. Marioooooooooo!
    For me, as well as master for entertainment, it is also an example for the direction and cinematography!

  3. I see I was the only one to vote for Kaneto Shindo!

    Go Japan! 😉

    • I consider Romero a favourite director but he only contributed one film to the 60s…it is a freaking masterpiece though…I’ll give ya that! And Hitchcock…yeah…master of “suspense” not horror…but again had two undeniably brilliant contributions. Now Shindo…well he made a lot of films in the 60s but like Hitchcock he only made a couple genre contributions. Shindo’s two horror films are freaking perfect! Personally my choice would have been Bava. But I was happy to see at least a little love for Japan with your Shindo nod and who ever chose Honda! Yep…Go Japan Go! I owe you a Perfect Blue review! 🙂
