_________________________________________________________________



THIS THREAD IS FOR DISCUSSION ONLY!


----> ACTUAL LISTS WILL GO HERE! <----


LINK IS OFFICIALLY ACTIVE!




THE "RULES"
Since 2005 the goal of the challenge has been to reach 100 horror / horror-related films. Your personal goal is as high or as low as you choose. Whether you achieve it, surpass it or don't even remotely come close to reaching it, the ultimate goal here is to enjoy yourself while conversing with fellow horror fans.
There will be a separate lists thread posted roughly 2 weeks prior to the start date. Be creative and personalize your list however you wish - give reviews, post pics, provide IMDB links with your titles, add YouTube videos, include running times (calculating total times is up to you), etc. The forum software now allows for unlimited post length, although you're still welcome to post it in a weekly or biweekly format. It's also recommended that you provide a link to the list in your signature for easier access. The only mandatory rule here is NUMBER YOUR LISTS!
What qualifies? If you're uncertain of the title's genre classification the IMDB and allmovie are good sources to determine its potential horror movie status. However, both sites have been known to make the occasional error and if you feel that's the case asking in the discussion thread is advised. Everything from Horror-comedies, Sci-Fi horror, wretchedly bad horror [INSERT CURRENT REMAKE HERE], kiddie horror, creature features, erotic horror, Masters of Horror (Yesssss, they're still considered movies) silents, made-for-TV movies, etc. will count. Mini-series count as 1 despite the running time. LEGITIMATE STAND-ALONE DOCUMENTARIES ONLY. NO FLUFF - That refers to featurettes produced exclusively for the film's disc as supplemental material. For example, don't try and pass off the featurettes, interviews, making of and the like as part of your list. TV SHOWS DO NOT COUNT (exception being those used as wild cards).
Commentaries are allowed as a "with or without" option.
DON'T VIEW THE SAME FILM MORE THAN ONCE! Remakes are the exception to the rule. In other words, don't watch the theatrical version of "The Exorcist" after already having viewed "The Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen" and vice versa. 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. This is simply to encourage diversity and isn't set in stone.
The formats and where / how you watch them is strictly your call -- DVD, Blu-ray, HD DVD, at the theater, on television, public domain downloads (links provided below), VHS, Laserdisc, Video On Demand, Netflix, UMD, MiniDV, CED, Unbox, through your neighbor's window, Apple TV, Watch Instantly, Hulu, Youtube, Payperview, Betamax, via laptop, VCD, iPhone...you name it. And yes, that even includes the pan & scan edited-for-television movies that air on TBS with multiple pop-ups and commercial interruptions (NOT recommended!). Just make sure the film is viewed in it's entirety.
KEEP IT CIVIL! Please leave the arguments, hostility, name calling and accusations at the door. The mods are constantly monitoring this thread and will take any necessary actions.
You're welcome to include non-genre titles in your list, but please keep them separate from the qualifying ones and don't number them.



OPTIONAL
(SEE POST 2 FOR MORE DETAILS.)

6 WILD CARDS
THE CHECKLIST
31 FILMS SUBSET
THEME NIGHTS
This allows you to add a TV show, Halloween cartoon, short film, etc. and have it count. As always, the challenge wouldn't be complete without wholeheartedly recommending "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" as essential viewing.Complete it and feel a sense of accomplishment. Expanded Checklist HERE.Watch these 31 films on the listed day, with group discussion starting the next morning. Or don't watch them but still join the discussion. Click HERE for the list.This adds daily "themes" that include sub-genres, studios, actors and directors. Original post available HERE.







PRIZES



A random drawing will be held for anyone who reaches (or surpasses) the challenge's goal of 100.

The participant with the 'most impressive list' as determined by your votes will be awarded a prize.

Something else, maybe?

Extend the conversation by joining our Facebook Group!


Are you a Netflix subscriber with an Xbox gold membership? Wanna have a NETFLIX PARTY?
If so, post your gamertag or send it via PM to Mister Peepers.

SEND A FRIEND REQUEST TO DVDTalkHorror to join the parties.

Feel free to host a party whenever you want.
If you're watching something check the DVDTalkHorror friend's list and invite people!

Just go to Friends ---> DVDTalkHorror ---> Personal Profile ---> View Friends.
And then you can just invite whoever is online on that list into a party.
Spoiler:
Recently, Microsoft updated the Netflix player on the 360. Among the changes is the addition called 'Netflix Parties'. Basically someone is a host and invites people to watch a movie together. Everyone watches it at the same time, and we can communicate w/ voice during the movie.

You need an Xbox 360, a gold account, and a Netflix subscription. There's only one catch: For right now, Starz Play and Disney movies are not allowed to be used for parties.

We can use this thread to pick out movies and times to watch them. We can try to vary things up.

While we can watch classics or stuff we've all seen, I think it would be interesting to check out stuff that the entire group may not have watched. We could even take a gamble and watch god knows what. I think even some riffing on intentionally bad movies could be good for a laugh if done sparingly.

The challenge officially begins Thursday, October 1st, 2009 @ Midnight (EST).

Same for me. I got off to a quick start because I was out of work. Now that I'm back on my regular schedule, I'm not killing myself to break any records or anything.

I vowed last year to never watch it again, but the darn checklist makes it too tempting. I can't drink due to working tomorrow, but agree that next time I'll watch it buzzed.

Hey, I like that movie.

Maybe it's just my subconscious desire to want to take a bite out of someone's heart...

The theme night list above has some great titles. I'm concentrating a lot of time on 80's horror and there is some classic stuff there (Near Dark, The Fly, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Fright Night, etc.). For new movies be sure to check out Drag Me to Hell. It has to be one of the best horror flicks to come out in a long time. Of course you can never go wrong with the classics from Universal or Hammer Films.....

Best thing to do is just start watching. I'm away on a business trip, and I just threw DVDs in a travel case, in no particular order. For me, I just hit 16 watches, and all of them are first-time viewing. None of them are themed, mainly because I didn't have time to pack with themes in mind. I procrastinate packing. Sucks every time...

Giving it the same criticism as the Uwe Bolle flick might be a little harsh. I'll admit it definitely had a Fulci feel to it and The Goblins soundtrack ruled, but I just couldn't get into it for whatever reason. I was feeling a little under the weather when watching it so maybe it'll require another viewing someday.

Just post 'em in here. You could always put it in a spoiler tag if it's ginormous.

You just saw Braindead for the first time?

I envy you.

Night Of The Living Dead (1990)

I honestly think I'll never get tired of watching the remake. Fantastic!

Agreed. It was definitely one of the movies that got me into horror when I was very young. Savini did a good job with it

^ I didn't like it the first time I saw it, but on repeated viewings it has become a favorite of mine.

I'd loooooove to see Savini's uncut version.
