Transformers

With the end of the year rapidly approaching, the MTV Movies team is here to ask the hard questions. Which movie had the best ensemble cast of 2011, for one? How about the greatest sex scene of the year? Or perhaps the most important question of all: who was the best movie robot of 2011?

It's a bizarre question, sure, but a fair one to ask: there were a ton of 'bots at the box office this year, some more menacing than others. From the courageous Optimus Prime to the useless '80s Robot, here are your picks for the year's best cinematic robot. Cast your vote after the jump!

If a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, a movie's cast is only great as its worst actor. This year we saw some of 2011's best films held together, not by one stand-out star, but by a group of amazing actors working together to make one great movie.

As we here at MTV News start to look back on the year of movies, we want your input for what you think are the best films of the year. Today, we kick things off for the award for Best Ensemble. Come back every day this week for a new poll and a new chance to decide which movies ruled the multiplex this year.

Welcome to MTV's Killer Halloween! All week long, we're looking at ten of the greatest horror movie villains of all time, and with your help, we'll determine once and for all just how powerful these murdering psychopaths and evil masterminds really are.

Our contestants: Freddy Krueger ("A Nightmare on Elm Street"), Jason Voorhees ("Friday the Thirteenth"), Michael Myers ("Halloween"), Ghostface ("Scream"), Leatherface ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre"), Chucky ("Child's Play"), Norman Bates ("Psycho"), Pinhead ("Hellraiser"), Hannibal Lecter ("Silence of the Lambs") and Jigsaw ("Saw").

Halloween

Style, weapons, personality and gross factor aside, a horror movie killer's greatest asset is the legacy he leaves behind, whether we're talking about the continued success of these murderers' respective franchises or the long history of bloodshed they've carved out in the fictional worlds they exist in.

Rank the killers' haunting legacies -- one being completely forgettable, five being everlasting -- beyond the break. This is the last Killer Halloween category, and voting continues until Sunday (October 30) at 7PM EST. Check back on Halloween for all of the final results!

Halloween

Having great style, effective weaponry and a killer personality is all well and dandy, but what really makes a horror killer so special is the gross factor. Whether it's the nausea you feel when gazing upon their faces, or the stomach-churning sensation you suffer on witnessing their grotesque acts of violence, a horror movie killer's bloodsoaked rampage is meaningless without a viewer's need to vomit. Thankfully, our competitors bring the gag reflex in spades.

Vote on the Killer Halloween murderers' respective gross factors — one being tame, five being impossibly revolting — after the jump!

Today, before we get these killers to spill their guts and show us what they're really made of, we're focusing on something more at the surface: their style. A horror icon is nothing without an iconic look, and all ten of these killers have their own unique aesthetic to remember them by.

Beyond the break, rank each horror villain's style points -- one being poor style, five being excellent style -- and check back tomorrow for the results and the next round of voting!

With the release of "Paranormal Activity 3," the found footage genre has a new entry. Known for its quiet, everyday moments before big scares with a heightened sense of realism, found footage has become a staple of the horror genre in a few short years. The shaky, faux-documentary style really came into its own with 1999's "The Blair Witch Project," but examples of similar films can be traced back to as early as 1980 with the infamous "Cannibal Holocaust."

"Blair Witch" set off the biggest and most recent crop of found footage films, but the latest releases probably owe their popularity to 2008's "Cloverfield" and the original "Paranormal Activity." Ultra-cheap to make, the movies can either work because of their low-budget scares or stink of a movie studio trying to cash in on the latest movie fad without spending as much. Even the king of the zombie movie, George A. Romero, tried it out in "Diary of the Dead."

So we want to know which found footage movie you think is the best. Does the nod go to the movie that started it all, "The Blair Witch Project"? Or do you prefer your scares on the more "Paranormal" side?

Vote for your favorite in our poll past the break!
