THE "RULES"
Since its inception in 2005 the goal of this challenge has been to reach 100 horror films in a month's time. Obviously that's not an attainable goal for everyone, so your personal goal is of your choosing. Whether it's achieved, surpassed or beyond your reach, the ultimate goal here is to enjoy yourself while conversing with fellow genre fans.
As always, there will be a separate list thread posted roughly 2 weeks prior to the October 1st start date. Be creative and personalize your list however you wish - give reviews, post pics, link to your blog or start one on your page, provide IMDB links with your titles, add YouTube videos, include running times, etc. The forum software now allows for unlimited post length, although you're still welcome to post it in a weekly or biweekly format due to the beyond annoying 25(?!) image limit. It's also highly recommended that you provide a link to the list in your signature for easier access.

The only mandatory rule here is NUMBER YOUR LISTS!


If you're uncertain of the title's genre classification the IMDB and AllRovi (formerly allmovie.com) are the go-to sources for determining its potential horror movie status.
Need more confirmation? A third and fourth option exists and that is FlickChart (requires free sign up) and TMDB.
Of course, any site is prone to the occasional error and if you feel that's the case asking in the discussion thread is advised.
Just keep in mind that the #1 deciding factor regarding what counts is you and you alone.

Movies = 1 entry (despite running time)

TV shows count according to length as they're aired on TV (including commercials):
30 minute shows = an entry
1 hour shows = an entry
2 hour shows = 1 entry

Mini-Series = 1 entry for each day it aired

Commentaries count. (no restrictions)

Documentaries count.


MORE DETAILED INFO:
Spoiler:

Concerning TV shows and shorts films:

Like the other challenges, you need four 30 minute shows for 1 entry and two hour-long shows for 1 entry. 30 minute shows typically run roughly 22 - 24 minutes without commercials and hour-long shows are roughly 43 - 45 minutes. If it's short films that are 10 minutes or less, once you hit around 23 minutes of watching them, you've reached one 30 minute show ( an entry). Any combination that gets you to 90 minutes can be used for 1 entry. And this is not an exact science, so if you're off by a little it's really no big deal.

Simply Put:


Feature FilmsCounts as 1 entry
Short FilmsAdd them up to total 90 minutes to get 1 entry
Television ShowsAdd them up to 120 minutes (including commercials) to get 1 entry


When listing the TV shows try to keep them together in 1 entry.
Example: 30 min show/30 min show/30 min show/30 min show

For the sake of organization, it's advised that you keep a Temporary TV section at the bottom of your list until you get enough for an entry.

Why 90 minutes? To keep the continuity going with the other challenges.





Every facet of horror counts: Horror-comedies, Sci-Fi horror, wretchedly bad horror [Insert Current Remake Here], kiddie horror, creature features, erotic / XXX horror, Masters of Horror, silents, made-for-TV movies, etc.

The formats and how you watch them is strictly your call -- Blu-ray, DVD, Netflix Watch Instantly, HD DVD, at the theater, on television, public domain downloads (links provided below), VHS, Laserdisc, Video On Demand, Netflix disc-by-mail, UMD, MiniDV, CED, Amazon Instant Video, through your neighbor's window, Apple TV, a Boxee Box, Hulu, Youtube, Payperview, Betamax, via laptop, netbook, VCD, a smartphone, a tablet ...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.
Someday something important will reside here.
You're welcome to include non-genre titles viewed during the month in your list, but please keep them separate from your qualifying entries and don't number them.
Sometime in November there will be a results thread posted. If you wish to be included in the stats provided (aside from your number ranking), please include the following in your list:

- First time viewings. The thing is a commonly used symbol.
- Formats viewed. (BD, DVD, NWI, etc.)
- Your personal goal ...even if it happens to be the challenge's goal of 100.
Keep it civil. The intention here is to have fun, so please don't take this event started by a guy with just a little too much time on his hands that seriously.



_______________________________________________________________________________________


OPTIONAL
THE CHECKLIST
THEME NIGHTS
31 FILM SUBSET
3 WILD CARDS
Complete it and feel a sense of accomplishment. The Expanded Checklist is here.

Please include within spoiler tags to keep the list thread from running a mile long.
Now in its third year, this adds daily "themes" with accompanying links to horror sub-genres, studios, actors, directors and even a group marathon with the intention of watching said content on the designated day. This year's list is here.
Watch these 31 films on the listed day, with group discussion starting the next morning or at your own leisure. Or don't watch them but still join the discussion.

Also, the threads from the 2009 Subset List , 2010 Subset List and even the HFC List can be used for individual discussion if desired. This year's list is here.
Use for titles that lie outside the horror genre and normally wouldn't qualify or for those questionable titles you're not 100% certain about. They can also be used to count titles that aren't intended to be included as a full entry (ie a leftover 30-minute TV episode or short film). You have three so use them wisely.
SEE POST 2 OR THE LIST THREAD FOR MORE DETAILS.

HELPFUL TIPS & VARIOUS LINKS



Provide a link to your list in your signature.
Review it. Even if it's just a mini-review, a simple thumbs up / thumbs down or one word description.
Create a list in advance of what you plan to watch utilizing a site such as:
iCheckMovies | Listal | Listology | FlickChart | Ranker.
If you're indecisive and can't decide what to watch next the List Randomizer (via random.org) can help.
If you're doing a checklist, putting it in a spoiler tag makes the list thread much easier to read.
Increase your coffee consumption.
Insomniac? Use your disadvantage to your advantage!
Work from home? Ditto.
Skip the supplemental material ...there's always November for that!
Boredom setting in? Watch another movie!
Stay within your comfort level and try not to get too caught up in the numbers.
ENJOY YOURSELF!

Extend it even further by joining our Google+ Circle.
Just ask if you need an invite.





In Memoriam. (2009 - 2011)




Xbox users -- Have a Netflix Party:

Spoiler:
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.
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.

We are a bunch of chatterers. It's only Oct. 1, and we're already on page 2 of discussion.

I managed to get out of going to the baby shower that I was supposed to go to, so it looks like more horror and hopefully a few key checklist items in store for me tonight.

I thought the # posts per thread restriction was lifted? Or at least it has been in some forums, as some threads get into the multiple thousands of posts.

Yeah, it was. It's just more tradition than anything.

Thanks, and nope, don't mind at all. I keep wanting to try something new every year. Still fiddling with it, in fact!

Enjoying the hell out of a long-overdue re-watch of Bubba Ho-Tep now...

Night of the Living Dorks (2004)

It won't rock your world, but the 92 minutes pass easily enough. Would make a good break film between heavier movies.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 7th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (Oct 1-31) P

I was picking up a new battery for one of my remote controls at my local supermarket this afternoon, and I noticed a cardboard display set-up in front of the checkout lanes. It was a bunch of "Midnight Horror Collection" DVDs from Echo Bridge Home Entertainment priced at $4.99. I thought they would be a bunch of public domain titles, but there are some titles from studios like Full Moon and Miramax.

This is the one that I picked up: 8 Movie Pack Midnight Horror Collection Vol. 2. Some of these movies don't look very promising, but the price was right.

Looks like day 1 of viewing is over for me since I have to get ready to go out for the evening. 6 movies and a couple of shorts towards an entry. Not a bad day. Only 1 re-watch which was Santa Sangre. If you want my full run down on the days viewing click the link in my sig (or its whored out in my list lol)

I realized after fully reviewing one of those links for the theme subset that Shaun of the Dead is an Ealing Studios film. It looks like I've already got my movie picked out for Friday.

I watched The Loved Ones today too and I was a little disappointed. I kept hearing how great it was but I thought pretty much the same as you. It's not that it was a bad movie but it was standard fare for horror flicks like that, nothing special.

Chad,

I should probably know this, but some clarification please.

For the checklist items where it specifically says "film starring/etc", it can't be a TV episode, but can be a short film, right? If not, do we want to change the verbiage to allow TV shows on all checklist items?

Also, to be considered as completing the subset or theme nights, does one have to watch them on that specific 24 hour period? I think yes on the themes, but no on the subset perhaps.

I've got a bunch of those, purchased pretty much just for this challenge. Mostly DTV stuff, but there are some decent movies to be found in there, such as Below and Darkness.

Been having a marathon with friends today to kick things off. We just finished Hocus Pocus which I haven't watched since I was young. That movie does a great job of capturing the essence of October as a child.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 7th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (Oct 1-31) P

For those of you trying to take advantage of Netflix's streaming catalog to help complete the checklist, I highly recommend using The Masque of the Red Death for the Hazel Court requirement over Doctor Blood's Coffin. I decided to go for something I hadn't seen before, and it turns out Doctor Blood's Coffin is fairly boring. Twenty minutes left, and I feel like it has gone nowhere. Eh. The Masque of the Red Death is far better.

I also mapped out some possibilities for each day in October to match the theme of the day. What's funny is that I'm far more organized about what I'm going to be watching throughout the month than I ever have been in any previous challenge, and yet I'm probably the least organized in regards to my list. I guess I just can't ever get my shit completely together.

Oh, one more thing while I'm thinking about it. When I looked at the link Chad posted for action horror, it listed Hobo With a Shotgun. I have that recorded on my DVR when it showed on HDNet Movies and have never watched it. I'd like to finally have an excuse to make myself watch it but didn't think it would qualify. Any opinions?

That slide.com site isn't doing slide shows anymore. I guess they shut down on the 27th so I ended up using some kizoa thing instead which isn't bad but I'd rather use the other site.

Question for you all, could Peter Weir's The Last Wave be considered horror or will I need to wildcard it?

i think it falls in line with using stuff like toxic avenger or class of nuke em high. i dont really consider them horror, but like sci fi and fantasy they kinda just go with horror, bc people always end up listing them.

it is a revenge flick.

More thriller but I'd have no problem counting it. Great film.

Yes on short films. And personally I'd like to avoid counting TV shows like the plague.

Counting "The Muppet Show" for Vincent Price just seems weird.

The only way I was able to add that to the first post was to edit a slide slow I created in 2006.
