Exactly this on both - Cat People (1942) for Criterion or Isle of Lost Souls. Slither for comedy, Evil Dead II is another good comedy choice.

Agreed! I can watch my new del Toro box set! And a good reason to upgrade my Arachnophobia to blu-ray

Yes, you can. They're on the list.

And I'll keep this open until the other 31 are decided upon.

I'm trying to get some stuff together before vacation. Didn't we do The Blob as a theme last year or year before. Non-Criterion night?


I was thinking there was a discussion thread about it, but I didn't see it. Probably not!

We did The Blob (1988) remake in 2010 for the "Teen Screams" theme:

That's the only one so far.

Re: Pre-Horror Challenge 13: Building of the Optional Lists (Themes, Subset, & Checkl

Here's everything I have so far for the Theatrical Showing bonus subset. Is there anything missing or that needs taken away? I'm including those that only get as little as a one day theatrical exhibition, but nothing in the way of VOD only. And I'm also not sure what the current status of Jeepers Creepers 3 is, so I'll keep it there for the time being.
  • It
  • Mother!
  • Leatherface
  • Happy Hunting
  • Jeepers Creepers 3
  • Friend Request
  • Temple
  • Jackals
  • The Houses October Built 2
  • Happy Hunting
  • Welcome to Willits
  • Lycan
  • Flatliners (2017)
  • The Sound
  • Gerald's Game
  • Cult of Chucky
  • Dementia 13 (2017)
  • Better Watch Out
  • The Poughkeepsie Tapes
  • Happy Death Day
  • Red Christmas
  • Escape Room
  • Nightworld
  • Jigsaw

I think many, including myself, watched it as one of the few Criterion horrors for the challenge crossover on the 30th/1st.

Re: Pre-Horror Challenge 13: Building of the Optional Lists (Themes, Subset, & Checkl

Alright, the first phase of subset building is done. The second and final phase is now underway.

As always, apologies to those who didn't get their preferred suggestion picked, and to those that I'm about to ask for more. Everyone was on the list at one point as I've gone over practically every possibly scenario. Yeah, you know the drill by now.

In usual fashion I'll wait until completion to reveal the final list. Still, feel free to use any of the previously offered suggestions from post 8. Obviously you don't know what's already been used, so please offer alternative suggestions in addition to them if you do.




And, just like last year, we still have 2 vacant spots that need filling. Please step up and claim a spot if you haven't already. Let's get this done.

These two are linking to the same post, unintentionally I think?

I'll do a subset. Are Hooper, Faceoff, and 1980s video company, the only ones to choose from now?
