tough one for me (coz i love all of them) but i'm going for terminator - excellent storyline, great action and both movies were ahead of their time (oops, forgot about the 3rd), used some great technology and were massively entertaining. as a series it rocks. i would have chosen predator, but 2 wasn't great. on its own predator 1 vs terminator 1, pred all the way.
Alien for me..quel surprise! Only and I mean 'ONLY' the first one is IMHO one of the purest sci-fi horror films ever made. Next I'd go for Terminator, again the original is a classic. Sadly all the franchises get watered down as they get repeatedly flogged.

HAHA i knew you'd go for alien wook. and true, the original alien IMHO is THE best sci-fi horror film for pure scariness. i actually quite like the thing too (kurt russell one) for sci-fi horror too but alien tops it. interesting that james cameron turned both alien and terminator from the sci-fi horror genre to special fx action movies. have to admit i like aliens and terminator 2 better than the originals but only slightly. and you're right - every franchise in this poll ended with a bad movie.
