Big thanks to Chad! Also cheers to all the participants I don't think I could watch so many movies if it was just a personal challenge. It's been a lot of fun this year, as always. I'm looking forward to having time to comb through the lists.

Thanks so much for running a great challenge, Chad! It's always a treat and has been a bit of a godsend in this tumultuous election season! Also, congratulations to all of the winners!

I ended with a double feature of new watches: The Masque of the Red Death and Day of the Dead. Both are absolutely fantastic! I'm so glad that I accidentally bought the latter (which I thought was Dawn of the Dead), because it's a good addition to my collection and will definitely become a film I visit for many Octobers to come.

Hit 100 tonight with the frequently suggested Ghostwatch. Also hit checklist requirements and theme days. Fell a little behind on my lest but should be caught up in a few days. Thanks to Chad for the challenge, it's my favorite annual activity.

Only 333 days until the next challenge!

Ok, I know that I previously mentioned hating the rifftrax for Jaws, my favorite film of all time, probably because my love for it made it difficult to make fun of it. But Flaws, a low budget parody/homage to Jaws set in a backyard pool, is hilarious and brilliant.

I actually really enjoyed this film. Might be because I like The Governor's acting, though.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 12th Annual October Horror Movie Challenge (Oct 1-31) Pt

So Sunday night I wound up just watching whatever was on TV at the time while carving a pumpkin(which turned out pretty cool, pictures later).

First up was The Haunting In Connecticut which was a first time viewing. I had watched the Discovery documentary/re-enactment last year. So it was interesting to see this very loosely based on the true story version. It had a few good moments, and some really bad flash cut editing at many points which was annoying.

Then it was onto a Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode of The Killer Shrews. It's probably the funniest MST3K episode I've seen, since I laughed out loud many times throughout. The gang has plenty to riff on from the in-comprehensible dialogue, and bad script writing galore in regards to the 'plot' and character motivations, to the hilarious special effects of the shrews themselves.

And for Halloween. I debated between watching some first time view like the grim Broken(2006) among other selections. But I decided to end on a light note since I didn't want to spoil the mood with something depressing and could only get one movie in tonight before bed.

That movie was the Uwe Boll trashterpiece House of the Dead. Which I've been meaning to watch it for years during the challenge since I hadn't seen it since it first came out on DVD/cable. It's a terrible movie, but has some really funny moments that are not intentional. And there is a big action set piece that's the best sequence of the movie, which is a over the top cliche ridden sequence filled with slow motion-3D-360 camera pans-some cool gory head shots,explosions, bullet time effects/camera work, video game inserts, and a blaring hip hop soundtrack/techno score to pump it up and try to grab all markets possible in appeal. The scene goes on and on, and even has a hyper speed replay of the entire sequence up until that point, then it goes on and on..., and is hilarious.


So the total for the month was 12, since life got in the way. But it was still fun, and I had been watching horror movies regularly all year(I know, I know, I should save up for the challenge). So I wasn't starving for more horror if I had fasted on viewing them for most of the year.

I ended my Challenge with 125.75, with my final viewing being both a double credit viewing, and my one and only wild card, since I didn't know how to count a single short. I watched the hilarious Three Stooges short, 'Spook Louder'.

I agree with all of the above and it echoes the way I felt this year. Though I don't usually get even near the numbers some of you do, getting over 100 usually takes a lot of time for me and takes time away from other things. This year, I watched stuff as long as it didn't take away any special time from family, friends, or something I felt I shouldn't miss out on.

So I didn't hit 100 but I felt I did rather well for the time I put into it. I even took a week off at the end of October and still didn;t watch many more movies than I had the previous weeks since I spent some of that time mountain biking, hanging out of friends, etc.

Thanks for running the Challenge once again Chad. Still enjoyable as always.

Ditto. Watching movies is a fun hobby, but it doesn't build memories like going out to wineries with family or celebrating birthdays. Family and friends count more than movies, most days anyway.

Indeed. I enjoyed the month and talking about horror films with you fine folks. I finished all the theme nights, although I wasn't able to get in all the subset movies or the checklist.

Thanks for great challenge Chad!

I didn't get to the 70-80 I wanted, just into the 50s.

My list is finished.

I did get to see some 'great' horror flicks in the theater this year. The Tingler! Maniac. And last night the killer kid flick The Pit.

The Killer Shrews got some coverage on the Red White & Blue horror documentary I saw earlier in the month. I added it to my list, but there just wasn't enough time to get to it this month. The Shrews looked pretty terrible and I figured it would be right up my alley.

I've added Uwe Boll's flick to my list, but I'm pretty sure just from the description that I will definitely hate it. I think you've also described Alone in the Dark.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 12th Annual October Horror Movie Challenge (Oct 1-31) Pt

I would like to thank Chad for organizing such a great month of mayhem. It was a real challenge for me, but I was able to watch exactly 100 movies, with the great majority being first time views. I have a pretty hectic life, so taking a month 'off' to watch 100 movies adds another facet. As of this moment, I agree with Trevor that trying to watch this many movies in a month probably isn't good for sanity.

This month, I've had vivid dreams about sharks, gargoyles, several creepy kids and one really pissed off cat. A fortuitous late night, introduced me to A Page of Madness which I never knew existed. I've thought WAY too much about Goodnight Mommy and really just need a break.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions (current and past), which comprised ~ 1/3 of my list. Keep them coming.

I actually built memories with my wife who had a good time watching some of the offerings.

In about a month I'll be ready for next year!

I managed to hit 102 last night. For some reason I really wanted to hit 100 while I was still working just to see if I could do it again. What suffered though was being able to keep up with the discussions - I was constantly several pages behind. By next year I hope to be retired which should make things much easier.

I had a nice mix of first time views and favorites, many of which were on shiny new Blu-Ray discs. Now to work on my list and also come up with some highlights and duds (not too many of those this year thank goodness).

Thanks to Chad who always does an amazing job and to everyone who participated.

Another fun year! With only a few streaming exceptions (due to being out of town) I watched exclusively from my "unopened" piles and it shows! For once I watched *far* more than I purchased during the month and none of the purchases were impulse! Of course it helped that the movies everyone talked about were those I already owned or of a sub-genre of which I just don't like

Thanks Chad!

And thanks to all the sponsors!

I hope nobody minds me posting this here but it is on topic with horror and weird film and will reach the biggest audience in this thread...

Cult Epics has launched an Indiegogo campaign for help secure it's future bringing us the weirdest films the world has to offer. From t-shirts to a 5 year subscription of releases, there's something for everyone and every budget here. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/c...ook/x/647549#/

That was a trip. Hit 130 and bested last year's total by a couple. My to watch pile was actually watched this year, although definitely regret not getting through the new Universal Monster and Hammer sets. This is also the first time in recent memory I watched a minimum of four a day every day. And (to my delight) this challenge had the most physical media used since the early years, with 90 of those being Blu-rays. That means November will be consumed with watching a *shit-ton* of supplemental material!

I played it safe for the most part and didn't take too many risks with questionable titles. That, and the physical media boost, well, it probably helped keep my sanity in check and made for a more enjoyable experience. I'm beyond indecisive when it comes to streaming.

Thanks as always to everyone for keeping this horror express a-rollin'!

Lack of exercise is my biggest regret. On average I usually get in two 6 mile runs per week, and that didn't happen this month. Not even one. At least this unholy 85 degree November weather will help make up for that.

Family health problems kept our family home this October, as we didn't want my mom getting sick before her procedure, so there were no big Halloween activities for us. We were going to go on a haunted hay ride Sunday night, but it was pouring rain, and that was the last night it was going on. Family comes first though in my book.

Does anyone have any information on these three MST3K releases? I saw them all at Walmart tonight, but I can't find them online anywhere else. Are they Walmart exclusives?

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 12th Annual October Horror Movie Challenge (Oct 1-31) Pt

Here are a couple pictures of the pumpkin I carved(the one on the left), and I had some fun with fake blood and a severed arm.

I should point out I watched the theatrical cut of the movie. Uwe did make a 'funny version'(so called 'directors cut') that was released years later which I haven't seen yet. But it sounds a lot like the unrated version of Sex Drive, which is a joke version mocking studio mandated unrated versions. It might be amusing, but it might be annoying as hell since the director is purposefully trying to make it 'funny' with his re-edit.

I've only seen a brief bit of the first 30 minutes of Alone in the Dark, and it was mildly amusing from what I saw. But it did seem boring as well, so I didn't watch the entire thing. But that's how Boll's movies are: boring, with random unintentional funny moments from cheap sets/effects, by the numbers 'stylish' camera shots trying to be like Micheal Bay or something and no attempt at acting besides cliche ridden stereotypes.

Bolls interviews/commentaries can be hilarious as well since he's so clueless and passive aggressive. I'll have to check out Alone in the Dark eventually. The theatrical cut commentary sounds hilarious since I read he explodes with fury at Tara Reid for refusing to do nudity for the sex scene, and I guess that scene was removed from his directors cut released years later.

But other than House of the Dead. I haven't been able to push myself to suffer through anymore of his movies and only caught bits of them on TV. But his interviews have been a hoot over the years.

And speaking of you, View, my viewing patterns this month have moved me into your 2007 record territory. I didn't realize I was going to even break 300 until today. Now I sort of wish I had realized how close I'd get, I would have watched more of more shorter films and beaten your 333. I might be close after I total my TV viewings, but think I'll end up at least a few short.
Ack! I'd never reach that these days. I was working some days only hour shifts a day living in Japan teaching, unable to speak the language, no friends or social life. I barricaded myself in my tiny Japanese apartment with only my laptop and binge watched and ate bad pizza from the spot down the road. Ahhh, those were the days.

But, like any record, it's gotta' go some day.

Thanks so much to Chad for organizing this incredible event! Also, thanks to everyone for continuing to participate! I look forward to this time of year so much, and it's always been great to share it with you guys.

Unfortunately, life got in the way of me being able to watch too much, but I enjoyed what I saw. I definitely also took suggestions for what to watch next year from the thread.

Now, to finish my list!
