  1. The saddest deaths for me was
    3. Georgie
    2. Gage
    1. Nancy Thompson
    Because she was the original

  2. Umm … Gage didn’t butcher his entire family, though. Yes, it’s true that he didn’t kill his father. But you left out the fact that his sister was spared because she was staying with her grandparents.

  3. My list:

    1. Gage Creed (“Pet Sematary”)
    2. Annie Brackett (“Halloween II”)
    3. Samantha (“I Am Legend”)
    4. Seth Brundel (“The Fly”)
    5. Carrie White (“Carrie”)
