Removing descriptive adjectives and maybe doubling up some listings could help. For example, if someone wanted to see if we've done a theme of children, they may not see it under "creepy kids". Remove "creepy" or at least change it to "kids, creepy", and maybe "children, creepy" too.

Lots of similar examples like anything with a "/".

Also, we'll probably eventually need to repeat themes, so we could add the years we did the themes, so as to not repeat them too close together.

I'd be happy to do this at work later this week if people agree. Just think the longer the list gets, the more it'll be hard to keep track unless it's thorough.
Thanks also wanted to contribute in some way since I'm not good with coming up with unique themes to use. I can help a little further since I have the free time now to start working on adding the years used for example listed like:
Witchcraft (2009, 2011, 2014, 2015, 2016)
if that's what you mean? As for the rest feel free to touch up more if others agree.

*Edit - Just realized looking back at post #2 I only put 2009-2016 themes in list I made since that is what was given in there but see Chad mentioned this is 13th challenge coming up so I am missing some years?

Thank you x1000! You've not only made my job easier, but the overall selection process as well.

Just last year I made the mistake of suggesting a theme used years ago (that I initially suggested) simply because it had a different name. It made the cut and nobody noticed. This list will definitely help prevent future incidents.

It's now up on post 2, BTW.

No, that's everything. It was the newest of the optional tables and didn't come into existence until 2009.

I believe we tried to get one going and it didn't produce enough entries.

Ok good you're welcome glad to be of use. I agree it's nice to have just to be sure when people are referencing for theme ideas etc. I'll work on the themes with their years used format example I used above & post it once done hopefully by later tonight as an extra reference if people would like & then Trevor can adjust it more if people agree. I'm doing most of this on an iPad as don't have access to a computer but I was able to make it work as long as saving consistently so I don't lose my progress lol.

I stand corrected. All I remember is we didn't do it for whatever reason. Apparently we used this Wikipedia link?

Anyway, it's been added to post 5.

Sounds like a plan to me. Anything that expedites the process I'm all for.

We actually already covered that one. Of course there's no rule saying we can't combine old with new, but the 'doppelganger' addition really upped the entries considerably.

Or could always be an add on theme. Added.

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

Don't forget we're currently halfway there with the subset volunteering. 16/31.

Reserve your spot today if you haven't already. Spaces are going quick ...er than usual.

______________________________________________

Also, I don't know exactly when I'll kickoff theme voting, but it'll be fairly soon. Just wanna make sure that everyone's had a chance to get their theme suggestions in, and time to at least start compiling lists if need be.

This thread wasn't even up yet this time last year, so we're doing good timewise.

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

Am I overlooking it, or have we really never had a blaxploitation horror theme?

If not, that needs to be rectified pronto.

I think we discussed doing an animated theme, but it ended up turning into family friendly horror or something along those lines. I'm pretty sure ParaNorman was the selection.

On another note saw when scanning through to tally up the years for each theme last night that Jungle theme has been done with Killer Monkeys / Gorillas / Jungle in 2013, Technological Terrors has been used with Killer Robots / Evil Technology back in 2012, and Abandoned Places was used just last challenge so they'd be on returning themes not new.

Alright, just updated it on post 2.

And I did make one change - combined 'Psychotronic' (2013) and 'Stranger Things -&- Unconventional Movie Monsters' (2016). That's the one I mentioned earlier about accidentally reusing last year.

Thanks for the heads up. They're off the list, but can always reappear as returns.

You betcha. Regarding the Psychotronic and Stranger Things -&- Unconventional Movie Monsters themes I see what you meant now that you pointed it out, didn't pop out to me when doing the list due to the wording.

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

Of course I'll take a subset pick...


Some ideas... and these need some molding..

Groups in the Wrong Place/Wrong time... Thinking like Baskin, Don't Breath or even Night of the demons ... an obvious group of people that is connected go somewhere, and bad things happen. It seems a little to vague... so maybe a little work.

This one most likely would need to be combined with something... but with the popularity of Fued. Horror movies of Bette Davis or Joan Crawford for some reason The Nanny doesnt come up

With the announcement of a new Universal Monsters universe.. Classic Universal monsters

Here's a feud theme from allmovie. Unless I'm missing a 'select by genre' option, it looks like we'll have to cherry-pick those.

This is all I could find so far...

Obviously it's incomplete, so we might have to compile the rest ourselves.

Yeah, I didn't come to that realization until much later, but it still makes a good add on companion nonetheless.

What about a short night. Like just short horror. There are so many on Youtube and Vimeo. Obviously the duration would have to be added up for counting purposes, but already people who do the full checklist watch the films from 1890to 1910 and theyre all shorts. - Could call it Little Slivers.
