<sup><em>The "Rules"

<BR>

</td></tr><tr><TD BGCOLOR=#B0B0B0>What is This Thing?

Since its inception in 2005 the goal of this challenge has been to reach 100 horror films in a month's time. Obviously that's not an attainable goal for everyone, so your personal goal is of your choosing. Whether it's achieved, surpassed or beyond your reach, the ultimate goal here is to enjoy yourself while conversing with fellow genre fans.</td><tr><TD BGCOLOR=#98a8a8>Creating a List.

As always, there will be a separate list thread posted roughly 2 weeks prior to the October 1st start date. Be creative and personalize your list however you wish - give reviews, post pics, link to your blog or start one on your page, provide IMDB links with your titles, add YouTube videos, include running times, etc.

The forum software now allows for unlimited post length, although you're still welcome to post it in a weekly or biweekly format. Also be aware the image limit has been raised from 25 to 35 since the last challenge. And it's not a bad idea to provide a link to the list in your signature for easier access.

The only mandatory rule here is NUMBER YOUR LISTS!</td></tr><tr><TD BGCOLOR=#B0B0B0>

What Counts?

If you're uncertain of the title's genre classification the IMDB (http://www.imdb.com) and AllRovi (http://www.allrovi.com/movies) (formerly allmovie.com) are the go-to sources for determining its potential horror movie status.
Need more confirmation? A third and fourth option exists and that is FlickChart (http://www.flickchart.com) (requires free sign up) and TMDB (http://www.themoviedb.org).
Of course, any site is prone to the occasional error and if you feel that's the case asking in the discussion thread is advised.
Just keep in mind that the #1 deciding factor regarding what counts is you and you alone.

Movies = 1 entry (despite running time)

TV shows count according to length as they're aired on TV (including commercials):

30 minute shows = ¼ an entry
1 hour shows = ½ an entry
90 minute shows = ¾ an entry
2 hour shows = 1 entry

Mini-Series = 1 entry for each day it aired

Commentaries count. (no restrictions)

Documentaries count.

A SLIGHTLY MORE COMPLICATED EXPLANATION:

Concerning TV shows and shorts films:

Like the other challenges, you need four 30 minute shows for 1 entry and two hour-long shows for 1 entry. 30 minute shows typically run roughly 22 - 24 minutes without commercials and hour-long shows are roughly 43 - 45 minutes. If it's short films that are 10 minutes or less, once you hit around 23 minutes of watching them, you've reached one 30 minute show (¼ an entry). Any combination that gets you to 90 minutes can be used for 1 entry. And this is not an exact science, so if you're off by a little it's really no big deal.

When listing the TV shows try to keep them together in 1 entry.
Example: 30 min show/30 min show/30 min show/30 min show

For the sake of organization, it's advised that you keep a Temporary TV section at the bottom of your list until you get enough for an entry.

Why 90 minutes? To keep the continuity going with the other challenges.

Also, the threads from the 2009 Subset List (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/9715351-post170.html), 2010 Subset List (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/10392592-post256.html), 2011 Subset List (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/10937476-post478.html) and even the old HFC List (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/dvd-talk/566033-horror-film-club.html) can be used for individual discussion if desired. This year's list is COMING SOON.</td><td bgcolor=#98a8a8>Use for titles that lie outside the horror genre and normally wouldn't qualify or for those questionable titles you're not 100% certain about. They can also be used to count titles that aren't intended to be included as a full entry (I.E. a leftover 30-minute TV episode or short film). You have 3 so use them wisely.

NEW THIS YEAR: For every 100 movies watched, you earn 1 extra wild card.</td></tr><tr></tr></table>

HELPFUL TIPS & VARIOUS LINKS

<table border="8"><tr>
<td bgcolor=#98a8a8>

Provide a link to your list in your signature.
Review it. Even if it's just a mini-review, a simple thumbs up / thumbs down or one word description.
Subscribe to this thread for the latest updates (Thread Tools, Subscribe to this Thread).
Create a list in advance of what you plan to watch utilizing a site such as:
iCheckMovies (http://www.icheckmovies.com/) | Listal (http://www.listal.com) | Listology (http://listology.com) | ListPhile (http://www.listphile.com) | FlickChart (http://www.flickchart.com) | Ranker (http://www.ranker.com/list-of/film).
If you're indecisive and can't decide what to watch next the List Randomizer (http://www.random.org) (via random.org) can help.
If you're doing a checklist, putting it in a spoiler tag makes the list thread much easier to read.
Increase your coffee consumption.
Insomniac? Use your disadvantage to your advantage!
Work from home? Ditto.
Save the supplemental material for November!
Boredom setting in? Watch another movie!
Stay within your comfort level and try not to get too caught up in the numbers.
ENJOY YOURSELF!

Extend the conversation by joining our Facebook Page.
It's fairly non-intrusive - basically it lets you know about the upcoming giveaways, new threads posted, etc.

Extend it even further by joining our Google+ Circle.



http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n172/dvdchad/TwitterFinger.jpg (https://twitter.com/octhorrorchall)

Extend it ...straight to hell. Try our new Twitter account.
Our newest social media outlet where anything goes.



http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n172/dvdchad/NetflixXbox2.gif

Xbox users -- Have a Netflix Party:

Are you a Netflix subscriber with an Xbox gold membership? Wanna have a NETFLIX PARTY?
If so, post your gamertag or send it via PM to Mister Peepers (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/private.php?do=newpm&u=74401).

SEND A FRIEND REQUEST TO DVDTalkHorror to join the parties.

Feel free to host a party whenever you want.
If you're watching something check the DVDTalkHorror friend's list and invite people!

Just go to Friends ---> DVDTalkHorror ---> Personal Profile ---> View Friends.
And then you can just invite whoever is online on that list into a party.

Recently, Microsoft updated the Netflix player on the 360. Among the changes is the addition called 'Netflix Parties'. Basically someone is a host and invites people to watch a movie together. Everyone watches it at the same time, and we can communicate w/ voice during the movie.

You need an Xbox 360, a gold account, and a Netflix subscription. There's only one catch: For right now, Starz Play and Disney movies are not allowed to be used for parties.

We can use this thread to pick out movies and times to watch them. We can try to vary things up.

While we can watch classics or stuff we've all seen, I think it would be interesting to check out stuff that the entire group may not have watched. We could even take a gamble and watch god knows what. I think even some riffing on intentionally bad movies could be good for a laugh if done sparingly.

IMDB ADVANCED TITLE SEARCH (http://www.imdb.com/search/title)

One film could fill multiple items.
Example: Dracula would fill one for decade, rating, actor, vampire, based on novel, and maybe others as well.
Use a * to mark first time viewings.
Change "---" to "-X-" or some similar mark when you have completed that line item.

?? LINKS OF SUB-GENRES & BEYOND

2009 LIST (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/9727508-post279.html) | 2010 LIST (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/10392592-post256.html) | 2011 LIST (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/10937475-post477.html)

GOAL: To Sync 100% with the 31 Film Subset!

OBVIOUS ALERT: Some links don't contain a complete listing of all films from that specific sub-genre and/or are outside the horror genre altogether.

Good news about Mondo Macabro sponsoring; they're a great label... I've got a bunch of Mondo Macabro movies saved up for the challenge.

That banner is the busiest one yet, looks interesting.

Very cool banner! Looking at it, I had a sudden flashback to my childhood - does anyone remember those foldout boards that looked like background matte paintings, that you could affix G.I. Joe character stickers to and create scenarios with? At least, I think they were G.I. Joe characters - I only have a vague vision in my mind's eye.

pumpkin spice at Starbucks

That's about the only thing from Starbucks that I like. Thanks for the reminder. I also have some spiced orange mead that's recently aged enough to be really good, between 2-3 years, that I'll also be hitting.

Alright! I haven't been around the boards much in the last six months (basically the lives of my family and I have completely upturned pretty comprehensively) but I saw the notice come out over the Facebook group and it reminded me to check in. At first I was worried because I actually have a job this year (thankfully) but just last week I got a portable video player and I've been able to watch movies during my entire shift. Even though my collection is in storage on the other side of the country, I think I'll still be able to kick-ass this year. Can't wait.

Can't wait, got so many new dvds/blus to watch.

If all goes according to plan, I'll have 19 days out of the 31 off from using casual/vacation days. I love the look I get when I tell my coworkers my plans for using so many vacation days "just gonna sit on my butt and watch horror movies" -screwy-

I just saw the official thread and the start time is listed as "dusk on Monday October 1st". Just to clarify, technically that means dusk on September 30th, right?... to add a few additional hours before the normal start time of Midnight?

Yes. I edited the note at the top of the thread to reflect that.

Also we've got news pertaining to the sponsors and the checklist is ready. I'll try to post it tonight.

Wow, Chad! Excellent work on this. Very excited for my first ever horror challenge. I chucked at the "This line has been left blank since 2010 comment".

Regarding prizes, I see the criteria are:

- Actively participates.
- Reaches the challenge's goal of 100.
- Completes the Checklist, Theme Nights or 31 Film Subset.
- Has participated in 5 or more horror challenges.

To clarify, do each of the above need to be met in order to qualify for a prize?

Additionally, please correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought there were going to be bonus points or something incorporated related to if you attend a haunted house/trail, a horror play, etc.

Simply participating is enough to potentially win a prize

Chad
08-21-12, 07:33 PM
To clarify, do each of the above need to be met in order to qualify for a prize?

No, they're all separate categories. And it's not uncommon to have new ones added later on; it's just dependent on how many overall prizes are available. Last year I think we had 7 prize categories.

Additionally, please correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought there were going to be bonus points or something incorporated related to if you attend a haunted house/trail, a horror play, etc.

Yes. I was planning on doing one that's optional and another for a bonus point. The latter is gonna be incorporated into the 31 Film Subset list and we'll pick those films sometime in September.

As usual, I tried include a good mixture of the old and the new, the mainstream and the obscure and obviously that the filmography has enough titles. I *think* I incorporated all the suggestions into it I could, but if something's noticeably missing let me know. Also plan on eventually adding and revising a few hyperlinks.

One thing I didn't include is the "killed by" entry. It got a few mixed reactions and then was sort of overshadowed by the extra day discussion. Of course there's no rush on whether we do or don't add this one being it doesn't require any specific titles for those that like to plan ahead. So feel free to give any feedback on it:

List 10 different kills:
--- 1. Killed by (insert kill method), (insert title).
--- 2. Killed by (insert kill method), (insert title).
--- 3. Killed by (insert kill method), (insert title).
--- 4. Killed by (insert kill method), (insert title).
--- 5. Killed by (insert kill method), (insert title).
--- 6. Killed by (insert kill method), (insert title).
--- 7. Killed by (insert kill method), (insert title).
--- 8. Killed by (insert kill method), (insert title).
--- 9. Killed by (insert kill method), (insert title).
--- 10. Killed by (insert kill method), (insert title).
<BR>

I'll get to the sponsor news either tonight or tomorrow. And I'm hoping to get the theme nights list up within the next couple or so days so, again, you can plan ahead and get an idea what your subset picks are going to be.

Looks like a more a more specific celebrity focused checklist. I'll have to figure out who some of them are to get ready; looking forward to expanding my horizons.

Last night I pulled aside movies I'd like to watch this challenge and I think I've already overshot what is plausible.

I don't think the open-ended-ness really fits the checklist. 3-4 somethings like Death underwater, decapitation, death while fucking, ect. Would work a bit better. Kind of like car bingo where you are watching and then ooh ooh thats on the checklist!

Im in the same boat and ended up breaking into the horror pile i been saving for the challenge, but thankfully so far the two titles are good enough to warrent a rewatch for the challenge in Zombie Babies and Mr. Hush.

and having the checklist this early helps since i need to order a couple titles to fill in some blanks. October can't come fast enough

This seems to be the only reason I still frequent DVDtalk. I'm in but doubt I am going to get anywhere close to the neck and neck horror fight for #1 last year but damned if I don't reach 100 again. My goal in this is always do over 80% flicks I've never seen before.

Kicking things off this year Chillerama (2011)! Hope to add more discussion this year.

I'm getting anxious for October but I'll get a lil taste of a horror marathon on Saturday night. There's a theater in Long Island that every year, has a 5 movie horror marathon on the last Saturday of August. They also show a double feature every Saturday night for the entire summer. I got to see The Omen and Rosemary's Baby a few weeks ago for one of them. The first 4 movies of the marathon are announced a month in advance and the last film isn't revealed until the moment they start playing it. They're going with an international theme this year and are showing...

1. The Descent (UK)
2. Ringu (Japan)
3. Martyrs (France)
4. REC (Spain)
5 ??? (US)

The Descent is one of my all-time faves and I'm excited to be able to see it on the big screen. I have never seen Ringu or Martyrs but have wanted to see both for a while now, so I'm looking forward to those too. Then there's always the excitement and anticipation for the surprise finale. I'll report back on the final movie after the marathon. Here's a link to the site if anyone's interested...

As long as we're discussing theater options: for those in the Boston area, this is The Coolidge's weekend midnight movie schedule for October:

The Funhouse
V/H/S
Lifeforce
TCM 2
Poltergeist

Plus, a 12-hour marathon on the night of the 27th, including The Exorcist and The Thing.

Rifftrax is doing a live show of Birdemic on the 25th.

Not at all thrilled that Lina Romay is a checklist item. Most of her stuff is awful because it's directed by Jess Franco. fake edit: Looks like Lina's been beaten by Raine Brown. She looks like she's just been in a bunch of crappy DTV films. I don't even think I own any of them, unlike the other actors/actresses, of which I own most, if not all, of their horror films. At least Lina has a couple titles that are somewhat above average.

I know it's very Franco-centric, but IMDB (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0739124/filmogenre) lists 47 horror credits to her name. Gotta be at least one thing worth watching there, right? Did I mention she died this year? And Raine Brown, man! Raine Brown!

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h290/alanrowekelly/Raine%20Brown/file35.jpg

But point taken, I could always add an "-or-" actor with a more limited filmography from the checklist suggestions next to each.

I started looking at Lina again. I didn't realize Franco made Ilsa, since it's somewhat coherent. I have a few discs with her in my unwatched pile, so it's not that bad.

There's a couple Raine Brown films available for streaming on Netflix, so I guess that's something. The reviews don't make it seem anything better than bottom barrel DTV but this expands my horizons.

Cool. That's what the checklist is all about.

Although, since not everyone is especially fond of the low-budget indie DTV titles, I included Angela Bettis next to Raine Brown.

Here's the sponsor news I've been promising...

First, I'd like to officially welcome 2 more sponsors to the pack:

Back for a 2nd year and quick on the ball as always, Synapse.

http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n172/dvdchad/SynapseFilmslogo.jpg (http://synapse-films.com/)


And something a little different than the usual studio, distributor or company:

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y272/sethdlh/ct.jpg (http://www.celluloidterror.blogspot.com)

SethDLH is gonna be donating some prizes in conjunction with his blog, Celluloid Terror.

I'll get those up on the first page soon.


And since thing's have been a little different than usual this year, I never got a chance to properly welcome our current sponsors...

The ever dependable Hamilton Book:

http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f128/chemosh6969/hamiltonbook.gif (http://www.hamiltonbook.com/)

And of course the man responsible, GoldenWheels.


A new sponsor with us for the first time, Mondo Macabro:

http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n172/dvdchad/MondoMacabroLogo.gif (http://www.mondomacabrodvd.com/start.html)



And another first-timer, Breaking Glass Pictures:

http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n172/dvdchad/BreakingGlassLogo.png (http://www.breakingglasspictures.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=frontpage&Itemid=1)


Welcome all! You are very much appreciated.


And a big thanks as always to John Sinnott!


Already we've got more sponsors than ever, but let's just say there's a very high probability more are coming. The fact is I still haven't contacted them all and there's a few I'm currently awaiting a response from. As far as the prizes are concerned and what they are, well, I'm still working on that. Could be awhile, therefore I won't throw out any specific dates. Although it's a safe bet most before the challenge starts; this is only August, after all.

I figure it's a win-win for my blog and the Challenge so I'm happy to do it! Hopefully next week or the first week of Sept. I'll have the prizes picked and in hand.

Franco is such a mixed bag, some of his work is cheesy fun, some is actually good and a lot is just a mess. lI'll probably use Lina Romay for that checklist item, more than likely with the Orloff films that I've never seen. As for Bettis she's a good actress, she can be weirdly attractive at times, but that picture is just awful. I can't believe she's almost 40.

being that i threw in Raine Browns name into the mix I rec 100 tears as its on netflix que and one of my favorites from her along with some other straight to dvd releases Barricade and the beast. I guess im a fan of low budget horror eh.

suggestion on the actors list *i think criterion does this* why not make it "watch X amount of actors in the list"?

Hi all, I've been enjoying the last couple challenges and see how much enthusiasm you guys have for the October Horror challenge. I have to admit, horror is my least favorite genre which is funny since I love Halloween. I have to admit; I maybe own 2 or 3 actual horror films and one of those I only have because my college was used as a location... I blame my sister who thought it was funny to tell me to close my eyes during the scary bits and then told me to open them just as the worse part occurred--when I was five!

Is there a horror "lite" version of the challenge using just Halloween themed movies/tv shows? Would be OK to join in if I'm able doing a challenge like that on my own if there isn't? I kind of think it would be a challenge of itself to come up with a checklist sort of like JHCA13 did but I don't want to overstep my welcome or annoy anyone.

Thanks for answers--and I really don't mind if this wouldn't fit in but like the back and forth in the challenge discussions and wouldn't mind doing more like it. :)

^I'd highly recommend going with the classic Universal Horror titles from the 30s to 50s as a good starting point. More gothic horror and less gore. Many should be available through your library or streaming services.

I have a list of titles Uni released over the years and can repost it if anyone is interested.

In addition to BobO'Link's suggestion, which I second, I would go with the Val Lewton horror films made at RKO in the early '40s (CAT PEOPLE, I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE, ISLE OF THE DEAD, THE BODY SNATCHER, BEDLAM, et al). They're more suggestive than graphic yet are very effective. Look up contemporary reviews of them (James Agee was a champion of them) to see what I mean. I'd also suggest the Hammer horror films made in England from the late '50s to the early '70s, e.g. the Dracula and Frankenstein films with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. They have their moments but are not too bloody. One of them--DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE--was even rated G! They're beautifully made period films and are well acted with strong casts of distinguished English supporting actors.

There's a lot of anime horror, although you have to be careful, since some of those are quite gruesome. But there are plenty, like "Vampire Princess Miyu," that are much more atmospheric than horrific. The original VAMPIRE HUNTER D is a good one also.

Hong Kong ghost stories range from the romantic (ROUGE, PICTURE OF A NYMPH) to the comic (MR. VAMPIRE, ENCOUNTERS OF THE SPOOKY KIND) to effects-filled action extravaganzas (A CHINESE GHOST STORY, plus its sequels). I was so taken with the Hong Kong films I saw for last year's challenge that I went to another board and asked for suggestions for further viewing in terms of Chinese ghost stories and then made a list and went down to Chinatown and loaded up on more DVDs. Plus I bought English-language editions of the books which contain the original stories that were adapted for some of these films.

Some of the early Italian horror, like Mario Bava's films (BLACK SUNDAY, BLACK SABBATH, BARON BLOOD) and Dario Argento's early gialli, are more atmospheric and moody than bloody. Just stay away from the post-DAWN OF THE DEAD ones.

If you want to see a good "Horror Lite" list, check out my tally from last year's challenge (link below).

LJG765, I'd be happy to PM you a list of great G-rated horror films from the 30's - 60's.Although I prefer strong horror movies with plentiful bloodsplatter and disrobement I am always on the look-out for softer material that won't traumatize the kids when they are awake. Any recommendations would be appreciated here. With these limitations I am planning on focusing somewhat on the history of horror movies. I've got all the Universal Legacy collections lined up (Dracula, Frankenstein, Invisible Man, Wolf Man, Creature) along with Island of Lost Souls, Val Lewton Collection, Phantom Carriage, Inner Sanctum Mysteries, Curse of the Demon, Vampyr, Haxan. There are also several cartoons appropriate such as Igor, Monster House, Monsters Inc, Corpse Bride, Halloween Tree (youtube streaming), etc. If anyone can recommend softer movies then I would appreciate it.

being that i threw in Raine Browns name into the mix I rec 100 tears as its on netflix que and one of my favorites from her along with some other straight to dvd releases Barricade and the beast. I guess im a fan of low budget horror eh.

I like low budget too but I grew up in a different era of low budget that, I'd argue, was a little more creative. Over the last decade of low budget horror, I see the same things each time. At least 95% of the film taking place in a building or large home at night(or they cover all the windows and pretend it's daytime), when the crew has access to it. They rarely venture outside. If they do a scene somewhere else, it's at someone's house or in the woods.

The script is an afterthought and the person that wrote it also directed/produced/starred/etc, in it. The actors are all friends, none of whom can act and haven't finished their acting classes at junior college. If there is a big name attached to the film, it's in big print on the box and they only have a few lines on the film. Special effects consist of fake blood and awful cgi.

I'm also not saying that older stuff is the bee's knees. It's just that I prefer more physical special effects. You also get films taking place in a wider range of areas, like period pieces with decent costumes, and they also don't rely on shaky cam for attempts at bad scares.

If I can find a recent low budget horror that doesn't do the same thing that all the others do, I'm happy to give it a shot. Birdemic was a fun low budget film. It didn't take place in one location and different things happened. It wasn't just a small group of people starting out in a warehouse at night, walking around, getting haunted and dying, then the remaining couple leaving at the end.

LJG765, I'd also suggest Goosebumps and The Haunting Hour. If you have the Hub channel, they show on there. I imagine they're also on youtube.

If you can find a cheap copy on DVD, or don't mind VHS, check out My Teacher Ate My Homework! It's an evil doll movie but it's rated G and is pretty good, overall. I don't have issues watching it from year to year.

Thanks Trevor! I made the same mistake last year. I'll fix it asap.

In addition to BobO'Link's suggestion, which I second, I would go with the Val Lewton horror films made at RKO in the early '40s (CAT PEOPLE, I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE, ISLE OF THE DEAD, THE BODY SNATCHER, BEDLAM, et al). They're more suggestive than graphic yet are very effective. Look up contemporary reviews of them (James Agee was a champion of them) to see what I mean. I'd also suggest the Hammer horror films made in England from the late '50s to the early '70s, e.g. the Dracula and Frankenstein films with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. They have their moments but are not too bloody. One of them--DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE--was even rated G! They're beautifully made period films and are well acted with strong casts of distinguished English supporting actors....
Some of the early Italian horror, like Mario Bava's films (BLACK SUNDAY, BLACK SABBATH, BARON BLOOD) and Dario Argento's early gialli, are more atmospheric and moody than bloody. Just stay away from the post-DAWN OF THE DEAD ones...
I totally forgot about the Lewton films. They fit in quite nicely with the Uni Horror catalog. I *almost* mentioned the Hammer series but, depending on outlook, they are a bit more gruesome and suggestive. I tend to steer away from them if the grandkids are around. And, again, totally didn't think about the early Bava films.

I should be ashamed for leaving all of those out as I tend to gravitate towards the films from those eras and prefer them over the more gorier films from the 70s onward. I'll leave as my excuse that I posted my suggestion early this morning right after I woke and had little time as I needed to get dressed and leave for work. :)

I'll post the lists I have (Uni and Hammer) when I get home this evening.

suggestion on the actors list *i think criterion does this* why not make it "watch X amount of actors in the list"?

I think one film by some of the actors that have been selected for the checklist is way more than enough!

You forgot Unrated (Pre-1968)

Can we add that back to the main checklist btw?

I thought it was decided it was unnecessary considering the checklist requires films from each decade.

suggestion on the actors list *i think criterion does this* why not make it "watch X amount of actors in the list"?

Noted.

Hi all, I've been enjoying the last couple challenges and see how much enthusiasm you guys have for the October Horror challenge. I have to admit, horror is my least favorite genre which is funny since I love Halloween. I have to admit; I maybe own 2 or 3 actual horror films and one of those I only have because my college was used as a location... I blame my sister who thought it was funny to tell me to close my eyes during the scary bits and then told me to open them just as the worse part occurred--when I was five!

Is there a horror "lite" version of the challenge using just Halloween themed movies/tv shows? Would be OK to join in if I'm able doing a challenge like that on my own if there isn't? I kind of think it would be a challenge of itself to come up with a checklist sort of like JHCA13 did but I don't want to overstep my welcome or annoy anyone.

Thanks for answers--and I really don't mind if this wouldn't fit in but like the back and forth in the challenge discussions and wouldn't mind doing more like it. :)

That's perfectly fine. Feel free to watch whatever you want to and create any personal checklists or just whatever and go about it your own way.

And I can't go without recommending Mad Monster Party? (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061931). That's essential Halloween viewing, IMO.

You forgot Unrated (Pre-1968)

Can we add that back to the main checklist btw?

Oh God, I'm getting deja vu from the original discussion and feel a headache coming on, which sucks considering my doctor said I can't take any Tylenol a week before my surgery! But seriously, didn't we discuss this a couple years back and the general consensus was it was unnecessary and limited your viewing choices as well as what clckworang mentioned below? I know a major source of contention regarding past checklist items (Attack of, Day of, etc.) is that they require you to watch the same 'ol titles and, well, wouldn't adding this back accomplish the same?

Of course any feedback is welcome on this as well as terrycloth's suggestion and the "killed by" item. But again, none of this is time-sensitive and whether we do or don't include them doesn't really effect those that plan ahead.

I agree the pre-code rating is sufficiently covered by the decades checklist item.

I like the "killed by..." checklist item but the potential for spoilers might be a dealbreaker; maybe altering it to "attempted kill by... [i.e. chainsaw]" which implies only that a weapon is featured but not the outcome.
...And I can't go without recommending Mad Monster Party? (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061931). That's essential Halloween viewing, IMO.+1 Mad Monster Party blu-ray is coming out soon too.
...my doctor said I can't take any Tylenol a week before my surgery!

Thanks Trevor! I made the same mistake last year. I'll fix it asap.
I did what you're contemplating two years ago, adding all of the retired ratings like GP and M. Each year I'm tempted to try to calculate the "checklist minimum", watching the fewest items but still satisfying the checklist.
And I can't go without recommending Mad Monster Party? (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061931). That's essential Halloween viewing, IMO.
Speaking of "checklist minimum", this title is not only a great watch, but satisfies tons of checklist items. I watch it almost every October now.

Welcome aboard LGJ765! As Chad said, the Challenges are pretty loose and you're welcome to tune it to your desired tastes. Someone can watch just NC-17 rated films, someone else can watch just Adaams Family episodes, and someone else can watch 300 films fully doing all the theme nights and checklist; and all three are equal 'winners' of the Challenge. The goal is just to have fun, but hopefully doing it in a somewhat communal way. The supplemental themes and checklist and subset films encourage group participation and discussion, but we all participate differently.

Speaking of your favorite theme of Halloween; I'm tempted to make my October all Halloween-themed. I have at least 30 films set on Halloween, plus most of the Simpsons Treehouse of Terror episodes. Hmmmm.

I like the "killed by..." checklist item but the potential for spoilers might be a dealbreaker; maybe altering it to "attempted kill by... [i.e. chainsaw]" which implies only that a weapon is featured but not the outcome.

I've had to be careful to not run across spoilers when figuring out if a movie fits in a certain category or not.

On the actors links on the checklist, I noticed not all of them included TV Movies. If you add it to John Agar, you get another 3 films. Thought I'd mention it.



Speaking of "checklist minimum", this title is not only a great watch, but satisfies tons of checklist items. I watch it almost every October now.

Tales of Terror is another one that always seems to be able to get a lot of checks, almost every year.

Would the TV version of Halloween count as "Made for TV", since it's has scenes added to it and it's not just some version where violence is cut?

I was thinking more of that as being Unrated by the MPAA which would be any movie prior to 68, for statistical reason I feel that say the Unrated cut of say I Am Legend just belongs in a different category than say Carnival of Souls.

Although yeah most people don't do what I do with the checklist.

You know... *every time* I think I'm done purchasing new titles for one of these challenges some of you go and mention one that sounds just too good to *not* pick up! I'm generally not a fan of Rankin/Bass but a glowing review here on DVDTalk (http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/38834/mad-monster-party/), Karloff doing voice work, co-written by Mad Magazine's Harvey Kurtzman, some *great* stills on that review, well... it's a no-brainer. Looks like a copy will arrive sometime before October... :D And I just noticed that Phyllis Diller does some voice work on this too! Yep... gotta order a copy...

Overall Favorites: Santa Sangre, Sauna, Thirst, Wild Zero, Burn Witch Burn, Most Dangerous Game, Lorna the Exorcist, Satan's Blood, The Brain That Wouldn't Die, Nosferatu the Vampyre, Kill Baby... Kill!, Critters 2, Tourist Trap, Kingdom of the Spiders, The House That Dripped Blood, Haxan, Sisters, Satánico Pandemonium, Salvage [2008], Dark Night of the Scarecrow, Ringu, The Grapes of Death.

Disappointments: Paranormal Activity 3, Popcorn, Bubba Ho-tep, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Pumpkinhead, Amusement, The Prophecy: Uprising, Fear No Evil, Dead Snow, Black Devil Doll, Header, Ringu sequels, Sorority Row, Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated, Saw II, Hellraiser: Hellworld
...Wild Zero (4.5)...There's no way to describe how unexpectedly fun Wild Zero is. Even hearing good reviews I was initially skeptical but it made my favorites list last year too....Werewolf Vs The Vampire Woman (1.5)... Death Bed (1)...These is in my pile for this year. How do you mess up a premise like Werewolf Vs The Vampire Woman?

How do you mess up a premise like Werewolf Vs The Vampire Woman?

You make it really really boring and you watch it at the end of the challenge. My advice would be to open with it, that way things can only get better.

Also there are 2 movies named Death Bed, if you are unfortunate enough to have the one distributed by Full Moon I suggest skipping that one altogether.

Buy the UK set (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Universal-Classic-Monsters-Collection-Limited/dp/B008R8E8VY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1345744687&sr=8-2) - it's $45 cheaper, region-free, has no rating logos on the cover, and comes in a coffin!
Sorry to derail the thread, but I've never ordered a DVD/Blu-ray from another country. Obvious, being cheaper and having a cooler looking box makes the UK version appear to be the primo choice. But what would be the disadvantage of ordering the UK version over the US one?

In this case, there isn't one. It's all region free, so that's not an issue. Everything matches the US version. You can also order the non-coffin version and save more. The coffin costs 44 and the non-coffin is 36

Rather than list my bests and worsts (I've got a feeling there would a lot of overlap with other participants' lists), I took a look through my past entries and picked out a few titles that maybe weren't the greatest films but still deserved to be seen:

Biozombie
Deadly Friend
I was a Teenage Zombie
The Manster
Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl
Visiting Hours

I slacked off last year and just went with a 4-star scale rather than write up little synopses for each film. I think I'm going back to doing small write-ups for this year's challenge. In some cases, writing up a mini-review can be more entertaining than viewing the film!

Thanks guys for the suggestions and help. I looked at Mad Monster Party and it does look like a fun watch. I'll have to try to get a copy for October to watch.

As for the older films, I have watched several of the older ones like Dracula and Frankenstein-mainly the classics but they're not my favorites either. I'd say my taste runs more into the family/kid type Halloween horror films-the ones that aren't really horror. I do have Nosferatu and Bram Stoker's Dracula, but that about covers it. I do like Bruce Campbell movies-cheesy without being too scary. But mainly I watch more movies like ones from the Disney channel or Hocus Pocus or one of my favorites-Nightmare Before Christmas. (though, the question remains-is it a Halloween story about Christmas or a Christmas story about Halloween?)

But it sounds like I could focus on more Halloween type episodes-love the Simpsons Halloween of Terror epis and the Roseanne ones as well. I may do a checklist or not, but if I do one, it'll be one I came up with-I know I wouldn't get very far on the comprehensive one you've all come up with! Thanks again for all the suggestions!

Watch the Halloween special of Wishbone, it's a pretty good family friendly Halloween themed show. Really sets the mood for the season. It's available on Youtube

The Karnstein Trilogy
In the Karnstein Trilogy, based loosely on J. Sheridan Le Fanu's early vampire novella Carmilla, Hammer showed some of the most explicit scenes of lesbianism yet seen in mainstream English language films. Despite otherwise traditional Hammer design and direction, there was also a corresponding increase in scenes of nudity in the films during this era. The Karnstein Trilogy comprises:

I wish we could fastforward to October :( I had so much fun last year and I don't have the same pesky job to hold me back from watching more this time :D

The pending NHL lockout this season could help things along this year. Even if they just cancel the first month of games would greatly improve on my score for this year as the season, if you don't already know, starts every October. The fact that the season starts in October has cut into my score every passing year but here's hoping for a opening month shutdown. I'm a NHL hockey fan, but I would welcome a first month stoppage of games just for the sake of the Horror Challenge.

If anyone's looking for more horror, The Twisted Terror Collection is only $18.18 at Amazon(it's a marketplace seller fulfilled by Amazon), $11.92 if you want to go through the marketplace. This 6 movie set includes:

Eyes of a Stranger
Deadly Friend
From Beyond the Grave
Someone's Watching Me!
Dr. Giggles
The Hand

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B000TSMO70/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new

It's much cheaper than getting them individually.

^You did it again! :D

I've been eying From Beyond the Grave (included in that set) for a while. The *single* DVD of that one title sells for only a buck or two less than the mentioned set and is OOP. Outside of overstock vendors it's now only available as a MOD title. Considering the price and extra titles for only a couple of $$ extra I caved...

I was in Big Lots last night and found a sole copy of The Omen 2 Disk CE for $2.88 and since I've never seen it...

If I'm not careful I'll have purchased enough new Horror titles that my plans to watch the Universal Horror films in order is in danger of falling through...

By my count, I've got 30 new horror Blu-rays arriving between now and the end of October, so I should be in good shape.


Damn, NoirFan, that's a lot of new movies coming to you! I'm going to try and curtail my horror buying this year. I went over board for the scifi challenge.

My oldest daughter was watching A Haunting in our theater room, got scared and stopped watching. She says she always hears noises of things moving around and when she turns the lights on, it all stops. The second she turns the lights off, it starts up again. Apparently it's always been going on and she used to force the cat to go in with her when she wanted to watch or get something to watch downstairs. I tried offering her House to watch, the movie not the TV show but she ended up going with Rifftrax: The Crater Lake Monster.

For reference, this is what surrounds viewers in the room

I highly recommend the dubbed version of this film over the subtitled one, it is hilarious.
It's also the only DVD that I know of that's offered "Engrish" as a subtitle option (Engrish being the original H.K. subtitle track).

My wife loves that show, I simply tolerate it. At least it's not Grey's Anatomy, or something like that. Thank god she doesn't like Sex and the City. I think she watched one or two episodes before giving up on that.

One thing that might be making the noise is a little one foot tall door that's hidden behind some of the dvd shelves. The wife of the guy that built the house was mildly allergic to cats and they had one. So the guy made a habitat, for lack of a better word, for the cat upstairs. The closet of the master bedroom has the matching door, so the cat could hang out in the theater room and when it wanted to go outside, it'd go through the door, passing through the pathway behind the walls to the door in the closet. The bathroom has a pet door in the screen and there's a platform for the cat to lay on, or under. There's also a log for it to scratch and there used to be a board that went from the roof down to the fence, so it could pretty much come and go as it pleased, without bothering her.

I just have a box pressed up against it but if it's windy outside, it has a little bit of room to open and close, making some noise. I just haven't been bothered to wedge something in it to keep it closed better.

I told her about the little hidden door this morning but that didn't seem to make her feel any better. She hasn't seen Cat's Eye yet, otherwise I'm sure she'd picture the guy from there coming out.

Ilsa came back in print earlier this year but it's put out by Cheezy Flicks.

I like that Leech Woman and the Halloween Pinhead but I only bought the ones that Big Lots had for sale. Of course there was no Blade, just the Retro version.

Wow, that's awesome. Big Lots used to have much cooler stuff than they do these days.

The trade off was there weren't any DVDs like there are now. The toy section, at my Big Lots at least, consisted of them hanging stuff stuff on the wall, similar to what dollar stores tend to do. Less space but they generally had higher quality stuff that was closeout from other stores and items rotated out faster.

Gohastings.com has a 40% off sale with code "supersizeme," you have to purchase 4+ USED items to get the 40% off (3 items = 30% off, 2 items = 20%, etc) but some decent prices.
I'm debating pulling unwatched titles off the shelf to set aside for the challenge so I have them all together. I normally don't keep an actual pile of unwatched titles.I pulled out a bit of stuff to keep in one spot for the challenge this weekend, then realized I probably have too much stuff set aside and started watching some of it. Watching The Relic now (...because it doesn't seem "as horror" as some other stuff).
Now I'm hearing stuff in the room. Behind those shelves with the replicas and stuff, I just heard something bumping around back there. Both cats where on the other side where I was, so who knows what it was.Sorry, that was probably just me going for your Hellraiser collectables.

It should be noted that the sale only applies to USED CDs, movies, books, and games. They've got a ton of used horror DVDs that are priced at $1.99 each; if they're eligible for the sale, buying four of them will bring the price down to $1.20 each plus shipping. That would bring up a total of $8.64 (plus tax if you live where they have to tax you). $2.16 per DVD shipped is an amazingly good price.

While they're not perfect in the order fulfillment department (I generally have a wrong item in about every third order), they'll make good on any mistakes that they make. At prices like they have, I can deal with the occasional shipping screw up.

While I'm on the subject, they've got some of the best used TV season set prices that I've ever seen. Here's some examples of some things I've ordered recently (and the prices INCLUDE SHIPPING):

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Two - $2.95
Nip/Tuck Season Two - $2.95
Nip/Tuck Season Three - $2.95
Gene Simmons' Family Jewels Season One - $2.36
Family Guy: Volume 2 - $2.36
Family Guy: Volume 3 - $2.36

So, yeah, I've become a big, big fan of GoHastings.com.

I've got a bundle coming on Wednesday with all 10 of the Jean Rollin blu-rays that Redemption has released so far. And I'm putting aside some money from my last check and the next one to place an order of about 30 discs or so catching up on titles from Scorpion, Olive, and some of the other Redemption blu-rays. I'd also really like to see Sinister and the new Silent Hill in theaters since those look great but the three year old kind of puts the kibosh on that.

So here's theme nights, albeit a half-assed version. I'm leaving for my pre-op tomorrow morning and this is as much as I could get done before my life turns to hell for a brief period. But it's actually fairly complete as far as the themes go - might switch a few days around, update some links and obviously finish the examples, but that's not really important at this point. The important thing is it's been completely overhauled and with far less of the same repeats than ever before. Enjoy. And now's a good time to start getting an idea of what films you wanna pick for the subset list so we can sync these two babies up sometime in September.

The Man with the Golden Doujinshi
08-27-12, 10:09 PM
I've got a bundle coming on Wednesday with all 10 of the Jean Rollin blu-rays that Redemption has released so far.

Have you seen any before? Just curious because I'd say they're a gamble if you were doing blind buys.

New story about the haunted theater room. I hung some black curtains over the door frame so I could keep it dark but still have some air circulation. This afternoon, all the cats were in the bedroom, all the windows were shut yet the curtains were moving, as if either being blown by a slight breeze or a cat was playing with them. It was somewhat amusing when my daughter was scared of noises and stuff but now that things are happening everyday and I'd been around for it. I don't believe in ghosts, I just have no clue what's doing this stuff.

I predict that I'll stop posting completely sometime in October. It will be due to my untimely demise.

On a related note, I had one weird thing happen at the last house we lived at. At this point we didn't have cats or any other animals running around. Our bed was on one side of the wall and we had a dresser on the other. On top of the dresser was a remote control car and it had one of those stiff metal antennas. If you've ever had one, you know the twang sound it makes if you slap it.

In the middle of the night, I wake up and hear what sounds like someone hitting the antenna over and over, about every 5 seconds. Eventually it stops and I start hearing a light knocking, slightly muffled as if coming from inside the wall. It started out over where the remote control car was and slowly moved up, then across the ceiling towards where we're sleeping. It moved really slow but you could tell where it was going.

Back when I was hearing the sound of the antenna, I had decided I was going to cover my head with the blanket. All I remember was that the knocking was up on the ceiling and since it was moving so slow, I eventually fell back asleep. At one point I tried poking my wife awake but she just mumbled something at me and went back to sleep.

I could try and explain the knocking as something in the wall but it still seems odd that it was repeating and slowly moving. What I can't explain was the sound of the antenna. If I had a cat, that'd be one thing but I didn't.

Interesting checklist... looking forward to digging in. There's some oddities on there like Norwegian horror or nazi horror, bring it on.

Good luck again to Chad with the surgery, hang in there.

Tomorrow, lasting one week, is 40% off inflated sticker price at Barnes & Noble. I think The Entity and Night of the Creeps might end up being reasonable deals for me.

I too loaded up on Redemption Films Jean Rollin blu-rays; and they are (were?) on Netflix streaming so one would make a great subset suggestion.

Did you have AC on? That could explain the curtains moving.

I've had experiences with things before in an old house. It was along an old Underground Railroad path and in a Civil War area. The house wasn't particularly old, a few decades but the area has a reported history of different paranormal activity since the Civil War era and from other local legends and events. Anyways, we lived in this house for a year, it was about 10 years ago when I was in my sophomore or junior year of high school. There were 5 of us in the house, me, sister, mom, grandparents. One morning my grandparents start talking about their bed shaking during the night. The road we lived on was traveled by truckers frequently so the rest of us wrote it off to that but they didn't. A few days pass and they mention it happened again and noted that nothing else was moving except the bed. Pictures on the wall didn't rattle, and nothing free standing moved or made a noise. So again we think that's weird and all that but it wasn't happening to us so we just let it go without too much thought.

Cut to a few nights later again and in the middle of the night I wake up to my bed shaking pretty violently as if one or two people were standing at the foot and just lifting the mattress up and down and side to side. I scream out something along the lines of "my beds shaking!" and my grandparents who were next door said theirs was too and then my sister from the 3rd floor up and my mom from the first floor both started screaming hysterically in tears and came running. Nothing else in the room was moving but my bed. I had framed pictures on the wall, plenty of action figures standing around that were easily knocked over and other things that would rattle if it was one of the trucks driving by.

That among other things makes me believe in hauntings. Houses can be really creepy places, haunted or not. And for the record, no, I don't think whatever entity that may or may not have been in the house was trying to harm anyone. That said, I can certainly do without it happening again.

So which Jean Rollin Redemption films are worth checking out? Which ones are worth purchases?

Undeadcow

Speaking of real life ghost stories, I am curious if staying up to constantly watch sleazy horror movies makes one more or less susceptible to spiritual experiences. Maybe the cultures that use mood altering substances religiously have got it wrong and just need to incorporate more violent TV into their spiritual practices.

So which Jean Rollin Redemption films are worth checking out? Which ones are worth purchases?

Fasciation, Lips of Blood, or Living Dead Girl (LDG is bloodier than most) are worthy starting points to explore Rollin. My least favorite is Two Orphan Vampires. A lot of the Rollin films are similar slow paced arthouse/fantasy movies that are cheaply made with themes repeating across films so not for everyone and not blind buy safe. The Grapes of Death (not on blu-ray yet, but on Netflix streaming) is fairly accessible. To me Redemption Films' press suggests Requiem for a Vampire, which I haven't seen yet and features two girls inexplicably dressed as clowns fleeing vampires, is a highlight of his work.

...My boob counter came in the mail today...Haha... will you be counting by nipple or by actress? I'm curious to see if you end up on an even number or if there'll be a lot of strange one tit scenarios.

The Grapes of Death (not on blu-ray yet, but on Netflix streaming) is fairly accessible.

This is the one I would feel most safest on recommending. I mentioned before that it's Artsy title might sway certain horrorfreaks away, but it happens to be Rollin's most fastest-paced horror film....At least, from what I've seen so far.


To me Redemption Films' press suggests Requiem for a Vampire, which I haven't seen yet and features two girls inexplicably dressed as clowns fleeing vampires, is a highlight of his work.


Speaking of artsy, Requiem/Vampire is like the French arty version of From Dusk 'til Dawn. "Dusk" has the criminal duo (Gecko Bros) on the run from the law who eventually run into vampires. "Requiem" is similar, but replacing the male outlaws are young lesbian lovers(!) The clown segment only occurs in the 1st act, btw.

Oh, and if there's one thing that I've grown to love about Rollin's films, it's the Castel Twins! They're in Nude Vampire & Lips of Blood. And 1-half of the duo, Marie-Pierre (The more hypnotizing of the two) is in Requiem & Shiver/Vampires.

Rollin is a real mixed bag with me. I like some of his work but find others to be painfully boring. He does create a nice atmosphere though. Problem is so many of his films run together for me that weeks or months later I can't tell them apart.

...Problem is so many of his [Jean Rollin] films run together for me that weeks or months later I can't tell them apart... I wonder how much of this is intentional versus lazy scripting or prop reuse. For example the vampires in Shiver of the Vampire show up in The Nude Vampire suggesting continuity. Also, one of the vampires in Lips of Blood wears the same see through purple robe and looks similar to one in Shiver of the Vampire. It could be he's just got a thing for two female vampires (Lips of Blood, Two Orphan Vampires, etc).

Speaking of real life ghost stories, I am curious if staying up to constantly watch sleazy horror movies makes one more or less susceptible to spiritual experiences. Maybe the cultures that use mood altering substances religiously have got it wrong and just need to incorporate more violent TV into their spiritual practices.



Fasciation, Lips of Blood, or Living Dead Girl (LDG is bloodier than most) are worthy starting points to explore Rollin. My least favorite is Two Orphan Vampires. A lot of the Rollin films are similar slow paced arthouse/fantasy movies that are cheaply made with themes repeating across films so not for everyone and not blind buy safe. The Grapes of Death (not on blu-ray yet, but on Netflix streaming) is fairly accessible. To me Redemption Films' press suggests Requiem for a Vampire, which I haven't seen yet and features two girls inexplicably dressed as clowns fleeing vampires, is a highlight of his work.

Haha... will you be counting by nipple or by actress? I'm curious to see if you end up on an even number or if there'll be a lot of strange one tit scenarios.

Probably by nipple but I may have an honorable mention for great side boob. But not sure if I want to count per scene or per actress, probably better per actress...

Also it makes me kind of afraid to watch Society....

Did you have AC on? That could explain the curtains moving.

Nope. Even if it were, the way the vents are positioned, they can't hit it. There's also a ceiling fan in the room and even when it's on, it doesn't move them.

Rollin is a real mixed bag with me. I like some of his work but find others to be painfully boring. He does create a nice atmosphere though. Problem is so many of his films run together for me that weeks or months later I can't tell them apart.

I liked most of them, at least the ones from the 70s, but I also couldn't tell you what any of them were about without looking them up. I bought a couple that I knew I liked and then got 4 more through a decent deal. They were cheap enough for me to gamble on.

I also have one of his more recent films in a Rareflix box set that I don't have high hopes for. I'm worried it's going to be similar to Jess Franco's more recent stuff with extremely low budgets.

If you got a good deal on the Rollin titles I'd say they're worth a gamble on. I'm sure they resell well if you don't like them.

A word of warning to anyone wanting to dig into Rollin's filmography: Stay far far away from Zombie Lake. Seriously, if you think you're far enough away just take another step back. Good lord what a POS.

Have you seen any before? Just curious because I'd say they're a gamble if you were doing blind buys.


Yeah, he's definitely an acquired taste. But I love what I've seen thus far of his work. He's one of the few directors that I can watch and appreciate as simply "art." I love the atmosphere, the dream logic, and how beautiful everything looks. I still remember being in the editing bay finishing up my graduation film and hearing about his passing. It hit me a little hard since I'd count him as one of my influences.

And I picked them all up at Kino's webstore for about $162 in a bundle which I think comes out a little cheaper than if you were to pick them up separately.

Does anyone know if Kino plans on releasing more of Rollin's stuff? There's none announced at the moment and it seems that they're focused on the new acquisitions like the Bava stuff right now. I'd just like to know what to wait for and what to look around elsewhere for. I'd also love it if Synapse released a blu of Grapes of Death.

I'm not sure how much more Rollin stuff remains but I would like to see Fiancee of Dracula (FoD) get a hi-def bump (in my opinion FoD salvaged late Rollin after the Two Orphan Vampires bungle) but Fiancee of Dracula was previously with Shriek Show so no telling where the rights are. Although FoD is hardly a lost gem.

Honestly I don't think I would have been as excited with Father's Day had I spent upwards of $25 on it. I got it from a marketplace seller and paid about $9 out of pocket after applying some credit. It was fun, and for $9 totally worth it but triple that price and I have to say that it would have factored in to my enjoyment haha. I wasn't a fan of the film of Porno Gang, but the disc is great. The film will divide it's audience but the disc is an all around winner. Thanks for the read!

While they (GoHastings) are not perfect in the order fulfillment department (I generally have a wrong item in about every third order), they'll make good on any mistakes that they make. At prices like they have, I can deal with the occasional shipping screw up.

While I'm on the subject...

...I just got in my fourth incorrect item from GoHastings. It was supposed to be the Special Edition of Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road CD, but I got in the one-disc version case with only a "Disc One" inside. So, instead of getting the complete album plus a bonus CD, I got half of the original album.

And yet, I still order from them because their prices on used items are SO good.

I feel sure that they'll make this mistake right, as they've done the previous three times.

But getting back on track for this thread, here (http://www.gohastings.com/browse/MOVIE/Cat/Horror/Ns/p_price/Ne/596/N/2458+4294962439/departmentName/MOVIE.uts)'s a link to over 60 pages of their used horror movies, priced from lowest to highest. You should be able to find at least a few movies you'd like to watch for the challenge--I just placed an order for five.

And no, the only affiliation that I have with GoHastings is as a customer.

I'd love for Grapes of Death to come out. I always kicked my heels about picking up the Synapse disc, and then I figured I'd wait for the blu. I've been wanting to see it forever. I have the Shriek Show Fiancee of Dracula but it went into storage before I could watch it. I'd be fine if they don't release that one, though it was in the same box as Two Orphan Vampires and Kino released that so who knows. I'd love to see Lost in New York as that's been intriguing me for years and I haven't gotten around to picking up the R2.

I'm definitely getting the two Franco titles as I don't think I own those in any form yet. I have all of the Pete Walker and Bava titles announced so far on SD so I should be good without those, but the allure of having them on blu is tempting...

Boobs are easier. With kill count, you have to figure out what you're going to count(on-screen, off-screen, between films that are referenced in later films, what if it's not clear a person died, what if the person dies and comes back to life, either as a zombie or through CPR).

...or should I do a kill count.....A kill count might be more consistent with the horror nature of the challenge. Ironically I wonder if counting kills would be less offensive to sensitive family members than boobs. Maybe I'm jaded from watching too may horror movies but kill counts seems more socially acceptable than anything sexual. You said it's not too late to order counters so go for the gusto with both, stake your claim as the kill & boob stat guy!Boobs are easier. With kill count, you have to figure out what you're going to count(on-screen, off-screen, between films that are referenced in later films, what if it's not clear a person died, what if the person dies and comes back to life, either as a zombie or through CPR).I wonder which character has been "killed" the most in horror movie(s). My guess is the Friday the 13th guy. I imagine some sort of comical extreme (i.e. South Park Kenny). With some outfits the same could be said about uncertain boobage.

Since I'm (Mostly) going to be watching stuff that I've been piling up on my DVR (i.e, straight-to-dvd movies) this means I'll have to put the checklist aside this year. I might be able to work out the Theme Nights though.

Undeadcow
08-31-12, 03:01 AM
Looking back over the checklist I suggest removing "takes place in space" because there are not a ton of space based horror films and they tend to be more sci-fi heavy (covered better in sci-fi challenge). Also "extraterrestrial" sort of duplicates the space item but is also more general/accessible (although "extraterrestrial" might itself be a sub-category under "creature feature" so redundant). I'm least excited about the sci-fi stuff invading the horror challenge.

It might be good to add "watch a short film" (not sure if that was one there before). Maybe also substituting above with "deathly inanimate object" (1 (http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/120850), 2 (http://tdylf.com/2012/01/03/infographic-inanimate-objects-that-murder-people-in-horror-movies/), i.e. Deathbed, Christine, Killer Condom, The Mangler, etc), "power tool weapons," (1 (http://headhuntershorrorhouse.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Power_tools/Appearances), 2 (http://www.horrormovies.org/database/keywords/Power_Drill/), i.e. TCM, Slumber Party Massacre, Driller Killer, Toolbox Murders, City of the Living Dead, etc) or "telekinesis" (1 (http://filmconnoisseur.blogspot.com/2010/05/mind-is-powerful-thing-to-waste.html), 2 (http://www.buried.com/horrormovies/keywords/Telekinesis/), Firestarter, Scanners, Carrie, Rubber, etc). Maybe even "inspired by "true" events" (1 (http://www.toptenz.net/top-10-real-events-that-inspired-scary-movies.php), 2 (http://www.imdb.com/list/lSczNqftNl4/), 3 (http://www.therollerskate.com/articles/movies/movie-lists/6-horror-movies-based-actual-events-that-actually-happened); i.e. Amityville Horror, TCM, The Entity, etc)

I remember one year I recommended adding something along the lines of "Watch a film with a weapon or tool in the title."

And I see your point regarding the space items, but I don't think we should alter the checklist because something is covered more in another challenge. Many of us don't even participate in the sci-fi challenge (I don't). I can maybe see combining the two, "Watch a movie in space or with an extraterrestrial," but science fiction is a very important part of the horror genre. It makes sense for that to be a checklist item.

Do you also think we should remove the "Takes place on a holiday" item from the checklist since it comes so near the Holiday Challenge? I just don't think other challenges should be factoring into our decision-making that much. Besides, the checklist is optional, and you could fulfill all the checklist items that lean toward science fiction with one movie.

Agreed! Watched Basket Case for the first time last Oct challenge, and it was easily the best new watch for me of the year.

Since then, I've bought Brain Damage and Frankenhooker, both of which I saved for this year's challenge. Basket Case 3 is being re-released on dvd by Synapse in Oct, as well as a blu ray region free trilogy released in the UK late October.

Do you also think we should remove the "Takes place on a holiday" item from the checklist since it comes so near the Holiday Challenge?...I respectfully disagree that outer space movies are an important part of the horror genre. I'm not sure why the space horror idea bothers me so much this year but I'm just struggling to think of interesting extraterrestrial centered movies that take place in space, are really horror, and that I haven't seen... will probably settle on Xtro. I am cool with the holiday themed ones and looking forward to Christmas Evil....a link to download the script for an unproduced Puppetmaster film written after the third movie was released...Very cool, thanks!...a man who is attacked by a creature in a rural cabin, which makes his touch become deadly. Anyone he touches burns to death, and any objects he touches also become deadly...I've got The Carriers in my "to watch pile also; let us know what you think of it if you re-watch it this challenge. Also looking forward to Code Red's Stigma and considering blind buy of Ghostkeeper. Can anyone recommend or discourage Ghostkeeper?Is anyone else planning on programming their own theme days? I have a couple in mind:

VHS-only releases
1981 (inspired by an issue of Horror Hound)I'm looking forward to Mexican horror (Brainiac. Black Pit of Dr M, Man and Monster). Not sure if I'd call it a "theme day" but eurohorror sleaze will be a big part of my life. Also going for for a day or two of Universal horror. There is one independent rental place in Houston, CDAudioPlus, but they only rent out VHS tapes... a VHS-only personal theme day is a great idea.If you haven't already seen Basket Case, that's another one by Frank Henenlotter you should also definitely check out!In my opinion Basket Case is better than Frankenhooker (Frankenhooker is kind of uneven) but both are great. Watching all the Basket Case movies back to back (they are continuous) is a blast but the difference between Basket Case 1 and 2 in tone can be jarring. Brain Damage is probably Henenlotter's best in my opinion. I've got Bad Biology on my list this year; I hope that one keeps up with the rest of his stuff.

Also how about the "literary world" category counting if you're working on a piece of it be it screenplay or story for novel/novella?

Poor Dwaine.

Balial in space could make a fitting part 4. Part 4's always lend themselves better to space travel anyway, like Leprechaun 4 or Hellraiser 4.

I respectfully disagree that outer space movies are an important part of the horror genre. I'm not sure why the space horror idea bothers me so much this year but I'm just struggling to think of interesting extraterrestrial centered movies that take place in space, are really horror, and that I haven't seen... will probably settle on Xtro.

A few suggestions:

Galaxy of Terror
Forbidden World
Queen of Blood
Planet of the Vampires
Inseminoid

It's been awhile but I don't remember Xtro having much to do about taking place in space. It's mostly about his son on Earth and him showing up. Maybe at the very beginning?

What I do remember taking place in space are Leprechaun 4, Critters 4, Jason X, and countless Alien rip-offs.

I am cool with the holiday themed ones and looking forward to Christmas Evil.

Well, I didn't say space was important. I said science fiction, which doesn't always have to do with space. That's why I said I could see your point about space and that a combination space/extraterrestrial would be a possible compromise. But my biggest issue was that I didn't agree with your reasoning about altering the checklist because something is better covered in another challenge.

Fair enough, I have resigned myself to Leprechaun 4 for now. I went through my collection this weekend and organized some of my films by theme day to get ready. Too bad there's not an evil midget theme day (haha).

Thanks to J.Farley for the Dark Side of the Moon recommendation, I'll have to hunt that one down sometime.

I'll be passing for two reasons:

1) Although it started strong, AHS fell apart by the end of the season, even going so far as to essentially do a stand-alone episode at the end of the run to fill out the episode order. While I'm sure that the producers have a firmer grasp on what they want to do this season as compared to last season, BECAUSE of last season it's not gotta-see TV for me.

2) I cancelled my DirecTV account and am not missing it in the least. I don't plan on resubscribing to it or to any cable company. I find it really quite liberating to not be tied to a DVR or TV schedule. I think I'm going to keep it this way.

I'm still considering doing an all Halloween Horror Challenge. Between the scores of films and the hundreds of TV episodes set on Halloween I could fill a couple Octobers.

But then, I just reorganized my collection, unboxing dozens of unopened horror sets and perhaps 100 unopened horror BDs; so I doubt I'll be able to be so focused.

Thanks for the kind words on CT as always! You're in for a treat with Whisperer. I'm sort of upset at myself for not waiting to watch it in October but I reallllly wanted to watch it and write about it. The supplements are fun too (4 easter eggs included).

Edit to add- I totally agree with your thoughts on Alien Raiders. If anyone can find it at Big Lots for $3 it is well worth the investment. The crappy generic name and packaging don't do it justice at all.

I'm only planning to watch approx 20-30 movies, which is a stretch for me. Suppose others might have the "do it all the way or don't do it at all" mentality, but I think it's more of a fun, personal thing to watch more horror than I normally would, converse with others, etc.
