    Are you kidding? This is a no brainer.

    Call me when Carol Anne spits up pea soup and makes sweet, sweet love to a crucifix and that pussy poltergeist stops playing with the TV remote.

    Pazuzu seems to have no power outside of a human host. Poltergeist has proved it can handle humans. Poltergeist wins.

    You mean when that pussy poltergeist makes a tree eat your kids and suck you through a portal into the underverse?

    This was my thought process as well. But there's still a force Pazuzu can inflect without humans.

    That's a good point, but the poltergeist doesn't seem to have much, if any, power outside the house and that Indian burial ground.

    Pazuzu and his cronies can kill people anywhere in the world. Speaking of which, what's the poltergeist's body count? Does he (they?) actually hurt anyone in the first movie?

    I'll give you the tree and that clown on pure creepiness, but that's where I draw the line. :P

    If the fight is gonna take place, and the poltergeist can't leave the burial ground, then the fight has to take place on the burial ground. Victory to poltergeist.

    Maybe. Depends on how we're gauging it.

    Mano e mano, both these guys are incorpeal and can't be killed by conventional means. Both have limitations in the physical world: The poltergeist is stuck in suburbia and the demon needs human hosts, or some way to manifest itself. I think Pazuzu wins out because the scope of his power is much wider than the poltergeist's.

    As movie monsters, Pazuzu is much scarier to me. The poltergeist is creepy, but ultimately harmless. The demon can not only kill you, but before he does that he has the ability to take away and surpress your entire identity.

    Both of them are pretty scary to me, really. I'll have to think about this one, and I really wish this battle was a final one or at least in the top 4.

    I decided, but not because of KF. In fact I was almost considering voting for Pazuzu in a foolish and lame attempt to spite him, but then I realized that the Poltergeist should win this battle.

    Fucking logic.
    I have a very busy head. I have inside voices that I have learned to contain.

    I don't get the odd love for the Poltergeist. It has won by a good margin in every battle, but it's not all that powerful nor is it deadly.

    I also take some small solace in the fact that Scar voted Candyman. :P

    I prefer Exorcist over Poltergeist, but I went with logic on this one.

    We're talking about two non corporeal beings battling it out. Not sure 'logic' is the word you're looking for.
