Yeah, you can count them. It'd be a little hypocritical to only count Masters of Horror ...especially considering it's essentially season 3.

Most of us have been using the same ones, here are my three with IMDB links.

07 - The Execution of Mary, Queen of Scots (1895)
08 - Le chaudron infernal (1903)
09 - Frankenstein (1910)

Edit to add: All easily found on youtube. Also, you're obviously not reading everyone's lists, or you would have seen these about 8 times.
There's also the 10-part film serial from 1915 Les Vampires. I can't remember if its been previously mentioned or not.

You're a lot nice than I am. I just tell people things I noticed on different networks and let them do the work looking for times.

I wish that IFC, Sundance and Turner Classic Movies would hurry up and go HD. I would record a lot more stuff from those channels if they were.

I have IFC HD, it's mostly terrible. TNTHD shows more actual HD programming.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 5th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (Oct 1-31) P

For anyone looking for some movies they may have missed, but are worth checking out here are some I missed when they first came out, but recently saw & enjoyed:

1. Slither (horror/comedy)
2. Street Trash (Get the Unrated version if you can)
3. Martyrs
4. The Cottage (Great horror/comedy)


Honorable Mentions:
1. Borderland
2. All the Boys Love Mandy Lane
3. The Burrowers (Horror/western)
4. Hard Candy (More of a psychological thriller)
5. The Last Confession of Alexander Pearce (Cannibal)
6. Antibodies (More of a Thriller IMO)
7. Ponty Pool
9. Midnight Movie (decent low budget)
10. Eden Lake
11. Pig Hunt

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941) is what I usually use. Searching last year's checklists would yield more I'm sure.

Really? That's disappointing. I would still love to see Turner Classics in HD. I don't mind recording movies that are "full frame" aspect ratio, but I try to avoid letterbox on SD channels, especially if I know that there's an anamorphic DVD or Blu-ray out there.

^ Yes, it's fun but some scenes go on wayyyy too long. Still, it has a great score and I love the cinematography.

I think that would be a bit of a stretch. Although it does perfectly fit one of the checklist categories, which I won't name and spoil it for anyone.

But either way, an awesome movie that any film lover should watch. Who cares if it counts or not. I think I'll queue it up when I get home.
