Horror-comedies, Sci-Fi horror, shitty horror (Prom Night remake, anyone?), kiddie horror, creature features, erotic horror, Masters of Horror (Yesssss, they're considered movies) silents, made-for-TV movies, etc. count. Mini-series count as 1 despite the running time. Legitimate stand-alone horror documentaries count. No fluff! One that isn't a featurette produced exclusively for a film's DVD as supplemental material.

The same holds true for all versions: director's cuts, unrated editions, colorized versions, fan edits, extended editions, "the version you supposedly couldn't see in a theater", etc. Honestly, why waste precious time watching the same bloody thing over again when there's so many great titles just waiting to be discovered out there?

    2008 Additions & Revisions


    As is usually the case, there's been a few minor changes made to this year's challenge. They are due to your feedback taken from this thread and are the following:
    • New this year is The "31 Films for 31 Days" List to encourage group discussion.
      <BR>
    • Horror documentaries are still allowed, but the "fluff" taken from DVD supplemental material (making of, featurettes, behind the scenes, etc.) no longer count. Some legitimate examples include: "100 Years of Horror", "American Nightmare", "Fear in the Dark" and "Halloween: 25 Years of Terror".
      <BR>
    • Pending your votes, a commentary rule change is a possibility.
      <BR>
    • The Wilds Cards have been doubled to 6.

    Yes, I realize everyone doesn't always agree on allowing commentaries, the 40-minute rule, the exclusion of TV shows, etc. But the fact of the matter is it's damn near impossible to satisfy everyone, that's the sole reason the feedback thread was created and your input was taken accordingly.

    Are we gonna have an official poll for the highly debated "Commentary" count?
    Well, my vote goes to C. Unlimited Commentary. (The "with or without" option. Same as last year.)

    Chad 09-01-08 08:28 PM

    ^Glad you reminded me.


    Vote for you favorite commentary option:
    1. Half credit option. Allow commentaries only after one has viewed the film with the proper soundtrack. If you do choose to go back and listen w/commentary it's worth half a credit/point.

    2. 7 commentary limit. Self explanatory.

    3. The "with or without" option. Same as last year.


    If you already voted over in the feedback thread I'll carry those votes over.

    riotinmyskull 09-01-08 08:31 PM

    i'm voting for C

    caligulathegod 09-01-08 08:35 PM

    Is it really that much of a burden to watch a real movie for the challenge? Commentaries pass the time "quicker" and more effortlessly, I'll give you that, but it takes more effort to actually be engaged in the story, the characters, the dialogue, the sound effects, etc. Horror's (of all genres) main purpose is to invoke a reaction, be it fear or terror, disgust or revulsion, shock, suspense, thrills, the jibblies, or whatever. Listening to someone talk over the soundtrack giving away tricks or upcoming scares, or telling us how much fun it was to work with so-and-so, or how great the catering was that day doesn't do that. This is a Horror movie challenge and it is in the spirit of the challenge to let the movies have a chance to work. It's not a "spend October with your DVDs" challenge. It's a "let's all watch a bunch of Horror movies together" challenge. Doesn't matter how you vote or what the rule ends up being. All I hope is for everyone to have respect for the genre and for the challenge and enjoy being scared the way it was meant to be.

    I'm caligulathegod, and I approved this message. (cue: Suspiria theme and Horror flags waving) :rip::rip::rip:



    As to the vote, there probably should have been a "D:No Commentary" option, too. I suggested "A" so that those who really wanted to listen to commentaries could still do so, but with a modest cost.

    And yeah, I know. I've politicked enough.

    That actually looked to me like they were just playing the Goblin soundtrack until they kicked into their own song.

    Mountain Biker 09-01-08 11:33 PM

    I'm with the others who have voted "D. No commentaries"

    RagingBull80 09-01-08 11:35 PM

    You rock Chad!

    Great job on the thread! :up:

    I'm really excited about this.

    Trevor 09-01-08 11:49 PM

    I'm torn on the commentary thing. Could easily vote "D", no commentaries. But then, my main "flogging a dead horse mantra" has been along the lines of "less rules, more fun, let people count whatever they want, don't worry if they're "doing it wrong", and relax". So I guess C is my choice. A and B are too "rulesy".

    Also, we need a set rule that MST3K and rifftrax are not commentaries, as you still hear the "real soundtrack".

    Here is the expanded checklist from last year.


    edit - tweaked and moved to a later page

    Trevor 09-01-08 11:52 PM

    Quick idea on the 31 nights. Let's make It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown one of the nights. Whenever it is on network TV I guess?

    caligulathegod 09-02-08 12:06 AM

    Isn't "Watch a film based on a video game" and "Watch a film directed by Uwe Boll" redundant? I'd just as soon lose the Uwe Boll entry and put in some other hack like H.G. Lewis or Joe D'Amato or someone else equally painful.

    "A" really isn't as "rulesy as it seems. It is the only one (other than the non-existent D) that insists viewers actually watch the film properly. I mean, it really should be self-evident that in a movie watching challenge you actually watch movies. It's also a concession to those who really, really want to watch a commentary. If you watch "half" a film, you should only get half credit.

    DeanoBKN 09-02-08 12:41 AM

    This sounds like fun. I never was a big fan of horror, of course i've seen all the "classics" but hopefully hearing your feedback on some titles will turn me on to a couple I missed.

    Fist of Doom 09-02-08 12:58 AM

    No commentaries!

    Horror Challenge only pure challenge. Extras lame, make Bumble angry...
    http://ericboggs.files.wordpress.com...03/bumble1.jpg

    The Monkees 09-02-08 01:43 AM

    I can't believe it's less than a month. I'm getting excited, I always get an urge to watch horror films around August / September but usually hold off until October.

    Julie Walker 09-02-08 02:06 AM

    I'll try to watch some movies this October, but can make no guarantee that I will watch many or any.

    Last year I only made it to 8 films, and that was a struggle itself with my work and class schedule. And i'm in a similar sitation this year. I'll try to watch stuff I have not watched yet, or haven't watched in a few years. And I may watch some alternate versions to mix it up as well. That is the plan anyway,if I can work in some films.

    Of course it should be quality over quantity,and just have fun with it. And watching only 8 last year wasn't bad and was fun for the most part.

    I'll vote for B since there are a few films I might like to watch with the commentary on. Looking forward to another great challenge this year Chad!

    I'd love to swap out Uwe Boll for him.

    From the feedback thread there were these suggestions for the checklist "movie title beginning with" "Return of the...", Revenge of the...", and "Attack of the..."

    I'll also add "a movie title with containing 'Living Dead'".

    I updated the checklist to the expanded version. Can't exactly say what prompted me to post the older one.

    Sounds good/will do.

    Done.

    As long as they're not back-to-back with the other Universal monster movies any day is fine by me.

    BTW, don't forget the new 'remastered Deluxe Edition' DVD comes out today. I never got around to getting the Paramount one, so I'll probably bite.

    Agreed. Asking someone to watch an Uwe Boll flick is cruel and unusual punishment. And I can say without a doubt it's the main reason I failed to complete last year's checklist.

    Good idea. And I'd like to add "Giallo" in horror subgenres.

    Wicked, Wicked (1973) is playing one time only on TCM on October 17 at 2:15am eastern. It is not on the TCM list. Yes, it is in widescreen DUOVISION!!!

    ^Thank you.

    Looks like it's an encore presentation of the original 6/6 TCM Underground airing:

    http://i.cnn.net/v5cache/TCM/2008/un..._oct17_2am.gif

    Added it along with "The Stepford Wives" and "The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane".

    Apparently I somehow overlooked the 17th completely.

    Wicked, Wicked sounds like an interesting oddity."No Glasses - All You Need Are Your Eyes." How many other films are completely split-screen? The only one I'm aware of is Mike Figgis' Timecode, with four (!) simultaneous frames of action.
