Re: Pre-Horror Challenge 12: Building of the Optional Lists (Themes, Subset, & Checkl

Most of these are first time watches that I've heard good things about. I updated information and edited some things.

  • Hush (2016) - Slasher (Netflix streaming) (I have a hearing loss myself so especially excited for this one to see what I think, this would be my first choice if available)
  • The Shallows (2016) - Jawsploitation (Redbox by Sept 27 and other streaming services I'm sure)
  • 13 Ghosts (1960) - Seance (rental/purchase at Vudu, Amazon, iTunes, etc.)
  • Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (1932) - Mad Doctors? (rental/purchase at Amazon, iTunes, etc.)
  • Stung (2015) - Insects (Netflix streaming)
  • The Purge: Election Year (2016) - Political (Oct 4th DVD release so should be at Redbox around then as well as other streaming services)
  • We Are Still Here (2015) - Seance (Netflix streaming)
  • Let Us Prey (2014) - Hell (rental/purchase at Netflix streaming, Shudder, Amazon, iTunes, etc.)
  • The Final Girls (2015) - Slasher (rental/purchase at iTunes, Amazon, etc.)

Re: Pre-Horror Challenge 12: Building of the Optional Lists (Themes, Subset, & Checkl

I'm jonesin' for House of Dark Shadows to be the Dark Shadows 50th Anniversary pick.

I'd like to also suggest Frailty for Careful with That Axe, Eugene, but it's not listed as a horror film on any of the usual sites. I don't understand how a movie with ax murders, demons, and serial killers can't possibly be considered horror. And yet, it consistently gets called a "thriller." Oh well.

In its place I'll proffer Dementia 13 for either Careful with That Axe, Eugene or for Public Domain Horror.

Maybe political horror, as the villains are Neo-Nazis?

My suggestions so far:

Aquatic Horror: Dark Water (2002)

Public Domain Horror: Messiah of Evil (1973)

Christmas Horror: Krampus (2015)

Slashers: Blood Rage (1987)

I can offer up some more if needed.

Re: Pre-Horror Challenge 12: Building of the Optional Lists (Themes, Subset, & Checkl

I can't believe Black Christmas has never been used! It's had several releases over the years on DVD and Blu-ray. It could be used for Christmas or Serial Killers and is available on

How about Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988) for Extraterrestrial or Strange Creatures? It has a 3D sequel planned for 2018, and is available on http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xlsrc8_killer-klowns-from-outer-space_shortfilms

I have yet to see either, but both of these are former SyFY movie of the week titles, and one is from The Asylum. Just letting you know since they don't exactly have the greatest track record.

Re: Pre-Horror Challenge 12: Building of the Optional Lists (Themes, Subset, & Checkl

I'd like to suggest we stop promoting illegitimate streaming. This forum bans discussions on torrents, bootleg DVDs, making copies, etc. Aren't these uploads to Youtube, DailyMotion, Vimeo the same thing?

There's plenty of legal streaming sites. We should be promoting those instead.

Dog Soldiers is available for rent/purchase at Amazon Video.
Killer Klowns from Outer Space is available for rent/purchase at Vudu, Amazon and iTunes.
Let Sleeping Corpses Lie is available at Shudder and for rent/purchase at Vudu, Amazon and iTunes.
The Crazies is available at Shudder and for rent/purchase at Vudu, Amazon and iTunes.

Epic banner; that's some brilliant photoshopping. That looks like a lifetime of work, very nicely done

It might not be popular but I agree with BigDave on only emphasizing commercial streaming - aside from the legalities those are sometimes a pain to get working, subject to removal, and often of questionable quality.

Edit - Youtube is so policed it might be ok; and YT does have rental, purchase, and free videos from license holders... other sites might too.

Dog Soldiers is available for rent/purchase at Amazon Video.
Killer Klowns from Outer Space is available for rent/purchase at Vudu, Amazon and iTunes.
Let Sleeping Corpses Lie is available at Shudder and for rent/purchase at Vudu, Amazon and iTunes.
The Crazies is available at Shudder and for rent/purchase at Vudu, Amazon and iTunes.
You left out youtube as an option to pay for.

I added pay options for youtube in my post for the non-public domain picks.

You're right. Youtube offers some legit movies for rental/purchase. And some legit free movies like the Paramount Vault.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzM...EwXPBvyht8xQNw

I'm talking about stuff that isn't public domain, and obviously guilty of copyright infringement. These full movies that are posted by anonymous people aren't any different than torrents or megaupload sites.

I don't care that people watch them. But I don't think we should openly promote them. Instead we should be supporting legal streaming services.

I'm fine with Amazon being used for Dog Soldiers.

Finally have post 5 updated up to this point. I'm adding names according to the order the suggestions were made.

Sounds good. I haven't watched it yet; chose it primarily because of Anton Yelchin, and the good reviews / word of mouth its received.

Werewolves: Dog Soldiers
Both Subspecies and Dog Soldiers have previously been used so I left them off.

The really suspect ones have the title intentionally misspelled.

Green Room was great. I'm obviously a horror buff, but several moments in that film had me wincing/squirming. Might make for an interesting discussion here.
