8th Annual Drive-in/Exploitation Challenge Results Thread (April 1-30,2017)

Not a bad year. A bit fewer participants. Total of 1402 films were watched (tentative count, as one list was not numbered and totaled). A couple didn't number their lists, but one only had 2 so I let that one slide. Only 2 lists were abandoned this year. And we have TWO rare Checklist completions. Congratulations to all the participants for making another great challenge.

Thanks for running the challenge, caligulathegod! My total was about the same as always, but I got in a number of good first-time watches.

Sorry, I didn't count my first time views. I had 103 (94.5%) if you want to add it.

Almost half of my movies were first time views, so I'm happy. I hope to do better next year. Thanks for a great Challenge, Caligula.

Ok, corrected. Looks like a few columns had blanks so they just collapsed. I put zeros and they aligned better.

I had 21 first-time viewings (out of 40 viewings). I put that in a post on the discussion thread, but forgot to put it in my list post. Sorry about that.

I completed the checklist too if you count the handful of allowed free spots I used for categories I tend to avoid or couldn't get a hold of this time. I think I have done so every year. I always like the checklist for getting me to watch a wider variety of exploitation stuff than I would otherwise. I look forward to the optional Elvis movie every year.

Sorry, missed that. It has been corrected. Congratulations. You are in a rare club.
