Actually VIII will be next. No Part VII in sight.

EDIT: Oops, you were counting horror flicks. Yeah, 7 so far. I'll color-code my list where applicable.

It's funny watching Friday the 13th back-to-back. Boy those got bad fast.

Don't. It's an extremely hard task! 100 in one month?!?! That's over 3 a day! Not only is that alot, but it's overload. I wouldn't even be able to remember half the movies if I saw 3 a day for a month! Not that many people have the time. That's why my goal was 7. I may not even make that!

10/18- (8)- Dracula- Dead and Loving it 10/19- (9)-Slaughter of the vampires Hey Ianscloset, don't give up! It's not just about watching the most horror movies, it's about having fun watching the ones you can watch. Look at me for example, I only have 9 for the month but I love what i'm doing and i'm having fun doing it, you should too.

The lists so far. If you don't have a masterlist, here's your chance to edit your original posting. And, if I'm missing someone let me know. Also, this doesn't mean you can't add new posts to keep the thread up and fresh (since the moderator's wont make this a stickey for the month) - I thought it would be easier and more direct if everyone had a full list - just a thought, I ain't asking the moon here folks. Once ,and if, everyone can compose a masterlist, I'll port this over to Chad's first posting.

Mikewendt,

I am curious, how do you have time to watch so many movies? I take it you don't have a regular 8-5 job or you have some major case of insomnia. I would kill to have that much free time to watch movies.

what was the decision about documentaries - are they fair game to include in our lists? I was planning on watching 'Document of the Dead' and the docu on Fulci's Zombie (Shriek's special edition DVD).

I know that TV-aired Doc's count (Since Chad included The American Nightmare in his list) But I'm still wondering about the ones you've got in mind as well.

I'd like to re-check that horror supplement with Carpenter,Landis,and Cronenberg on the Videodrome (CC). But I don't think that's long enough. 40-minutes was the main length right? Because 1 day, I was about to pop in Disney's Legend of Sleepy Hollow, but that was only 30.

yeah, 40min meeting the qualified running time for a full length film. Not only would I like to include the aforementioned docs, but I'd also like to port over the 1 hour docu on the history of 'Freaks' that I watched after the feature.

oh, and I SO can't wait to see the Masters of Horror Showtime series (!!!!)
