The actual list of what you watched and when...(please note these are the horror films you did watch, not ones planning to. Post a tally if more than one post)

1. Evil Dead II (new book of the dead) - The new transfer looked good but I don't know if it was worth replacing my tin version though I bought it mainly for the packaging. This is one movie that seems to get better the more times you watch it.

Is thread really any different than the original? Makes you feel like you have to post the same bloody thing in two threads. I'll stick with the original, especially with the heading.

because that had nothing to do with what you watchED. and most posts don't list the movies in anyway. this was suggested by another and done to list what you have already watched for the month.

one simple thread, nice simple lists...that's all.

A second thread on this project seems kinda like overkill.

What? The original thread had everything to do with what you watched...that's what it's all about. I could understand the need for a part II if it got to long, but this is essentially the same thread posted again.

Sorry, but making a duplicate of someone elses thread, just days after they started theirs, seems kind of rude.

Updated my list(post#3) and I need a ruling. Would everyone consider Ichi the Killer a horror film? I'll stand by a majority ruling.

From Chad's opening post:

"Just list them after you watch them and be sure to number them."

.. and Scott1598's burst of creativity:

"The actual list of what you watched and when..."
