Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 12th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

What's the ruling on Halloween-themed TV episodes? I'm talking about stuff that's not Horror, but celebrates the holiday. Like the Roseanne Halloween episodes.

They've always been allowed in the past, under TV counting rules.

If Halloween themed episodes didn't count, that would seem to be outside the spirit of doing the challenge in October.

There is no reason to revamp the counting. The original premise of the challenge was watching 100 horror movies. Tv was included only a few years back to allow some wiggle room but the premise is still the same. Watch 100 horror movies not 100 episodes of horror tv.

I agree that we should keep the traditional counting method. Other challenges I don't mind easy counting, but this challenge was the original, it seems sacrilege to dilute the challenge part of it. This is the one challenge I feel a sense of accomplishment at reaching 100.

I'd be perfectly fine with no counting. This is the only challenge the mods ever shut down for a period of time and it was 100% related to counting.

And for another unpopular idea, Film Threat is trying to relaunch. They've done some horror stuff and they have some nifty rewards.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 12th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

Keep the current counting. It's called "100 Movies, 31 Days" and just wouldn't be that with revised counting.

And I'm fairly certain I'll not hit 100 this year as I'm scheduled to be out of town 3 days in October for a conference. I'll hopefully be able to get in a few things those 3 days but am expecting them to be a total bust for the challenge. My current laptop doesn't have a DVD drive (and just whose brilliant idea was *that*?) so I'll be stuck with streaming (if the internet in the hotel is worth using - it usually isn't) or whatever I can dl onto my Fire tablet before I leave.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 12th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

Yeah, as much as I prefer "1 watch = 1 count" in the other Challenges, let's not change the counting rules here. While I strongly feel that 100 long pure horror films = 100 shorter thrillers = 400 Scooby-Doo episodes = 200 Supernatural episodes, the 100 goal and harder counting rules are part of the history and challenge of this Challenge.

The plot says supernatural horror but there's no horror tag on it, so I'll save it for later. I still have Tales from the Darkside, Friday the 13th and Poltergeist tv shows if I need to take a break from movies.
I might have mentioned it for the cheapness of it, but don't think I really recommended it. I haven't watched any of it. In fact, it's unopened and cheaper now than when I bought it gosh darn it.

Me too, and I'm sure it's because of Trevor. I'd already figured that one was out due to the descriptions I've read about the series.

The main reason I ask is that because I keep all of my Horror Challenge content organized separately from the rest of my collection. I've generally been putting my thrillers in with my horrors, but now I'm second guessing myself.
If it scares you, it counts as horror. If it doesn't scare you, it doesn't count.

Just to think if we actually used this rule, how many movies would we actually count. We could watch 200 films and may only count 10 sadly.

Here's another vote for keeping the counting the same. This is supposed to be a challenge, and I don't want to dilute that. It's always a tough march to 100 but a great sense of accomplishment as well. It wouldn't be the same otherwise.

And while there were issues with counting in the past, I don't recall any conflicts about it in the last few years. I think a lot of that died when we removed the prize for most watched.

I'm in favor of keeping things the way they are regarding the counting method.

The argument for change was just to make things easier. My suggestion for anyone who wants it to be easier is to stick with films only in the challenge. Then it becomes simple.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 12th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

Hi guys! Can't believe I've been gone from the site for so long. I've taken the last couple years off from this but I'm trying to come back this year. This challenge used to mean so much to my wife and I over the years, with it helping to create many memories I still hold dear. After she passed away, I kind of lost the drive to keep at it and sort of took the last few years putting life back together and trying to pick ourselves back up. But I saw the Facebook post for the lists thread going up and I felt a twinge of really missing all this, so here I am trying again. And I can't tell you what a comfort it is to see a lot of the same names here, as well as how good the banner and checklists and all still are. It really makes me happy to see something that was so important to us still going. Getting excited to start with the horror already!

Thanks! Yeah, it definitely looks like it only gets more and more refined over the years. I'm having fun skimming over the last couple years of lists that I missed too. It's nice to read through them and get the anticipation going.

To help whet my appetite for the challenge, I've started watching the original Dark Shadows on Hulu. Just finished episode 210, and it looks like a good show.

Prepare to be addicted. And I'm probably in the minority, but I actually enjoyed the pre-Barnabas episodes from season one. Even though a good portion of them revolves around the tedious Burke Devlin car crash plot, the latter half of the season does have some good supernatural occurrences.

What the consensus on counting different edits of the same movie as different items? Can you get credit twice for watching the same movie with and without commentary? I assume both are fine, but think there was some discussion otherwise at one point.

Do people here consider The Purge movies to be 'horror'? I've never seen them but at a glance they seem more action thriller fantasy. Debate about if thriller count aside, would I feel let down going into The Purge series hoping for traditional horror?
