I'll probably still check it out.
Cool! Thanks!

Not much really, just a 6-pack of new & sealed Criterion horrors: The Blob, Flesh for Frankenstein, Carnival of Souls, Jigoku, Videodrome and Vampyr.


Alright, I've pretty much milked it for all it's worth...

The same film can't be viewed more than once. Remakes are the exception to the rule. In other words, don't go back and watch the theatrical version of "Pale English Titty Vampires Part III: The Anemic Areola" after already having viewed "Pale English Titty Vampires Part III: The Anemic Areola SPF 666 Edition".

It's taken from a Dexter Season 2 quote:

Spoiler:
Deb refers to Lila as "Gross. And Pale. And nobody is pale in Miami ...she is obviously a vampire. A gross English TITTY vampire."



Dexter Season 2:

Spoiler:
Deb describes Lila as "Gross. And Pale. And nobody is pale in Miami ... she is obviously a vampire, a gross English TITTY vampire.
="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344">


Probably should have thrown in "gross" somewhere for good measure.

You didn't think it was purely for shock value, did you? Everything serves a purpose here.


And $20 says due to the show's popularity, a variation of that title will someday become reality as a direct-to-DVD title. It'll star Debbie Rochon, Tiffany Shepis and Christa Campbell all doing horrible British accents.

That's one of the few Vincent Price films I haven't seen. And I was considering purchasing the Anchor Bay version until realizing it was OOP and going for up to $144.99 new on Amazon Marketplace! And it's in the public domain!

What is the best version currently available, anyway?

According to DVDAf I own 198 horror films, though I'm going to try to focus primarily on first time viewings. Between (*ahem* public domain) torrents and Netflix, I have around 84 unwatched films to viddy, not including the 22 film Hammer set.

I am, but I haven't seen Season 2 yet. I'll be buying it at Target when it goes on sale the 14th, looking forward to finally watching it!

I want a clearer definition on what documentaries are viable. Most of the legacy sets from Universal include informative docs that are at or above the 42 minute mark and aren't fluff.

What about something like American Movie an alleged documentary about the making of a short horror film?

I just want this to be clear up front.

I thought 60 minutes was the agreed upon minimal running time? Personally, like commentary tracks, I don't believe documentaries should be included at all, though if they are, I may get around to watching the full-length doc included with The Exorcist.

Looks like those docs on the Poltergeist 25th Anniversary DVD might actually be good for something after all...

Anybody know the run time?

I think on the first page it was stated as 40 minutes being the minimal running time.

The only documentary I watched last year was The Omen Legacy. I didn't know the docs on the Universal Legacy Collections counted... assuming they do, of course. If so, it'll give me a good excuse to finally watch them.

edtheripper was kind enough to get me Demons and Demons 2 today for my birthday, so I'll be incorporating those into my challenge. :-p

I was looking around Hulu earlier tonight and saw that they have some episodes of Elvira's Movie Macabre from the early '80s.



Aside from the two sci-fi films, They Came From Beyond Space and The Doomsday Machine, I assume these will count since they're movies with host segments interspersed here and there.

As much as I love horror films I don't know why I've resisted participating in this event in the past but I'll bite for this year. One question: Where are you posting the lists that you're linking in your signatures? Any help would be appreciated.

Those are from last year's separate list thread. Chad will post a list thread for this year a week or so before October 1st.

I thought we were going to drop the Docs this year and go with a 60 minute minimum? There are barely a handful of sub 60 minute feature films, other than a few poverty row quickies that are missing footage, so there is no real reason to even have a 40 minute rule. It's an archaic rule that makes no sense in any context. The "Academy" would NEVER seriously consider a 45 minute film for any feature award. The rule is actually there to define a short film as one less than 40 minutes rather than truly define a feature.

The 40 minute rule combined with allowing documentaries allows in all DVD extra docs and A&E Biographies we were trying to avoid. Some may not think the Universal docs aren't "fluff", but at under an hour, they are technically fluff.

Honestly, we haven't made change one from last year or the year before. Voting doesn't work because no one is willing to make things more challenging or break with the status quo. More people are voluntarily skipping commentaries this year, which is very good to hear, but there's always too much FUD to actually shake things up. No disrespect intended to the other challenges, but this is the premiere movie challenge and it should be held to a higher standard. 100 Horror Movies in the month of October. Then let it be just that. No Docs, no commentaries, no TV, no BS. We all know what a real movie is, so we don't need to keep trying to find loopholes and exceptions. This isn't about trying to get the most movies on your list. It's an excuse to watch a bunch of Horror movies in the Horror month. The list is just a goal, not an ends.

If we do allow documentaries, they should be stand-alones rather than DVD extras.

FUD?

Agreed.

I, too, was under the impression that the time requirement was bumped to 60 minutes. It really doesn't affect me since all the Horror movies I own are way more than 60 minutes anyways, but I thought that was a done deal in the other thread.

Edit: Just to clarify, I don't care one way or the other, I just was pointing out that I thought it had been changed.
