                  I'm in, although I'm guessing I'll be pushing it to get 50.

                  Thanks Chad for kicking this off again. I made the top ten last year with 85, so I'll definitely be participating again.

                  I'm in this year. Couldn't do it last year due to time constraints.

                  From my post in the first thread:
                  "I actually pulled this off one year with having both SCREAM (Canada's Horror film network) and working in a video store. We, meaning my roomie and I, managed 103. We went through all the major franchises (Jason, Freddy and Myers), rented MANY duds and tripe and really had a fine time as the nights progressed to our final night of Halloween Rocky Horror (at midnight). Since then it has been a tradition to watch both those films on Halloween and only watch Horror films in October. Sadly, this year, that tradition will have to be placed on hold somewhat as I blaze through all my October orders, mainly the Hitchcock films. So, I doubt I'll get anywhere NEAR 100."

                  And again I work at a video store with an abundant Horror Film section so I'll be gunning for #1 (though I doubt I'll hit 100)! It'll be a strange mix when I start dipping into my classic horror collection and I'll begin with what some dub the first horror flick ever made. Tune in Oct. 1st to find out.

                  Toss my name into the pumpkin.

                  * * *

                  To sweeten the pot this year I'll actually toss in a copy of the above mentioned horror flick to the winner, shipping costs and all.

                  I posted in the other thread, but I am definitely in! I have been saving all my horror dvds just for this all year. I did this on my own last year and it was fun. I think I only reached 80. I will definitely get 100 and hopefully more. My current schedule can be seen here:

                  I'm in - my dvd collection was too lame last year to participate, but I've been buying and building and holding off on my Universal Monsters and Val Lewton boxsets for this event.
                  Have at it!

                  In!

                  Gonna try and beat my record of 51 last year. Not bad for a working stiff with a wife and a 1 year old.

                  Count me in this year. I won't reach 100 with law school and work, but I can try to get 20.

                  Does seeing films in the theater count?

                  Sounds like fun! Count me in. I'll probably be lucky to make 20 though...
