Some themes suggestions...

1. takes place in space or anywhere besides earth (mars, the moon, etc.)
http://www.imdb.com/list/ls050193364
2. female killers
http://www.imdb.com/list/ls031962008/
3. takes place on a farm
http://www.imdb.com/list/ls076573570
4. takes place in one room
http://www.imdb.com/list/ls075785141 (This list has mixed genres but if you click on horror in the refine list section, it totals out to 37 horror movies)
Added the last one, and we already did farms. I think the closet thing we've done to space was Sci-Fi horror.

Obviously it would be limited to certain tropes only, otherwise practically ever horror film ever made would qualify. And compiling lists might present an issue.

Just an idea.

What about a Meta Horror night? Stuff like Scream, Cabin in the Woods, Final Girls, etc. Has that been done?

Yeah, we covered that in 2012. Only been done once though, so it's due for a comeback.

No, but we had a 'Comic Book/Graphic Novel Adaptations' suggestion from last year. And I forgot to carry it over. Only 10 titles though.

Re: Pre-Horror Challenge 13: Building of the Optional Lists (Themes, Subset, & Checkl

Alright, 11 spots remain for subset volunteering.

Cleaned up post 5 a bit and added skulls and fire themes. Also added toxic waste to the slimey goo to up it a bit.

All other suggestions are currently being worked on...

There's a lot of horror TV from comic books too. And to really open it up one could include films made into comics afterwards.

Here's some Wikipedia links we can cherry-pick the horror titles from:

comics based on films

films based on comics


films based on video games

That's good to hear!

Makes me wish a horror con would come remotely close to where I live.

How about Frenemies or Bad Friends? Along the lines of April Fools Day
But that might be to narrow. Maybe Imaginary Friends? http://www.imdb.com/list/ls076089580/

All I can find pre-made is about a group of friends, but not specifically those with ill intentions. Added the latter.

And where's that Alucarda Blu-ray, Mondo Macabro?


EDIT: Found one.

Oh yeah, that sounds familiar. I remember hearing about them being prepped back in 2014(?) and then some kind of incident later on. And I was really excited for those red case numbered releases.

I've heard that there is a horror con in Buffalo, but I never went, as my folks would have to drive me and not only is it over 60 miles away, but my dad doesn't like driving in downtown Buffalo.

Re: Pre-Horror Challenge 13: Building of the Optional Lists (Themes, Subset, & Checkl

10 spots left.

Added the comic book/video game adaptation (still a work in progress) and the friends theme. Made the latter a compilation of all three kinds.

Also, I gave up on the 20th anniversary Buffy theme. Granted, I only covered the main cast, but this is the list it produced:

Spoiler:
  1. I Know What You Did Last Summer
  2. The Grudge
  3. Scream 2
  4. The Grudge 2
  5. The Return
  6. Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest
  7. Survival Island
  8. Psycho Beach Party
  9. Redwood
  10. The Portal
  11. Blood on the Highway
  12. Unholy
  13. Attack of the Morningside Monster
  14. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
  15. Repo! The Genetic Opera
  16. The Great Ghost Rescue
  17. House on Haunted Hill (1999)
  18. Abruptio
  19. Shadow Puppets
  20. Darkness Falls
  21. Black Christmas (2006)


If there is interest in it, let me know and I'll continue compiling. Otherwise, no point in wasting more time on it.

Re: Pre-Horror Challenge 13: Building of the Optional Lists (Themes, Subset, & Checkl

A very healthy selection of theme suggestions, a quiet thread, and the need to get moving means...

Theme Voting starts tomorrow night (8/10).

Now's the time to share if you have any remaining theme suggestions.

Let me know if any were overlooked.
