__________________________________________________________________

Lists are due 11/7.

This is if you wanna be eligible for certain prize categories -- 50 & under, 100 & under, the optional lists, and whatever else I'm probably forgetting.

_________________________________________________________________

Winners Addresses are due 11/10.

***Please don't abandon this thread immediately after Halloween!*** I'll also post the winners on the Facebook page, but don't rely on the post to make it to your news feed/wall. Check the OHMC Page directly.

If you already own some of the prizes, let me know and I'll see what I can do. As usual, no guarantees I can accommodate your request.

_________________________________________________________________



Ideas/Suggestions for Next Challenge:
Recently deceased seems unruly with so many names and a lot of them don't seem to have big horror outputs, maybe trim it down to just watch a movie by a recently deceased contributor.
Remove 'masters of commentary,' it's too specific when most participants don't emphasize commentary tracks anyway.
Consider alternating out 'tales place on lake/water' because variety.
Be cool with multiple viewings of same movie.
The checklist feels routine and most people who watch 100 films might automatically complete it anyway, maybe alter checklist to include subtle things like grimy walls, white dresses, axe, flickering lights, or other tropes more like a scavenger hunt.
Maybe allow for multiple day themes - for example, there are tons of zombie or vampire films so maybe there could/should be multiple zombie days (or maybe an Undead week with linked themes alternating each day)

Scarecrows for a theme or checklist item (or maybe merge it with mummies, not sure if they're similar enough)

Future Theme or Checklist Ideas: Victims sleeping through chaos and/or sleep related, Mirrors, Takes Place in a Mall checklist item, Psychiatric Theme Day, Sealed Room theme day (a room or building that is sealed away is catalyst), Electronic voice phenomena and/or cameras/technology showing truth, Jocks/Bullying, Redemption/Soul Harvesting, burgomaster present, horror movie playing on television, dogs, countess bathory, apocalypse

Maybe we could extend the chronological horror theme day to include 75th anniversary as well.

Shall We Play a Game? Theme Day - films that revolve around a game or contest (Saw films, Would You Rather, Cube, Most Dangerous Game). Didn't check but not sure if we have had something like this as a theme before.

Master of Commentary: Herschel Gordon Lewis, George Romero

Future Actor/Actress Ideas: Brian Cox, Caroline Williams, Helga Liné, Lauren Ashley Carter
Director/Writer: Micheal Keating

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

There's currently a $15 off $75 eBay deal for today only until 6PM PT using code POSTECLIPSE15.

Combined with the 'buy 4, get 15% off' at Blowitoutahere there's usually some good deals to be found on boutique label horror offerings.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

Thanks for the note on blowitouttahere Chad. Had seen the post on the ebay sale earlier but decided to skip it. Your mention made me scramble to find some slightly boutique horror after I got home from work. Had no time to research or check my collection, so hopefully these are good deals and not repeats.

Drive-In Delirium 70s and 80s - ~$10
Sennentunthschi: Curse of the Alps - ~$11
Slaughterhouse 30th Anniversary - ~$11
Dorm that Dripped Blood - ~$12
Beware the Blob - ~$13
Murder Weapon & Deadly Embrace - ~$13

I'm thinking of getting the rest of the Universal Monsters Legacy Collections that I don't have. I only need the Dracula, Invisible Man, and Mummy sets.

The building of the 31 Film Subset just kicked off in the pre-challenge thread.

And we still need 6 more volunteers.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 13th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/

Hi-Def Ninja put up 3 special editions of the upcoming Synapse Suspiria blu-ray for pre-order yesterday. The one with artwork from Matt Ryan Tobin is sold out, but the other 2 are still available. Each edition is limited to 200 and they're numbered. I ordered the Dark Inker edition and it came out to about $64 with shipping, which is $14 more than the standard edition from Synapse, but I think it's well worth it, and the slipbox is nice to have for protecting the steelbook. Here's the link to order... https://shop.hidefninja.com/products...nt=40814848197

This is the edition I ordered...

Sexy but whenever I see those key words "new 4K restoration" I think to myself I'll just wait and buy the 4k version.

I would've been all over that if I didn't already order direct from Synapse.

There's an Italian 4K coming 10/11. I've heard the colors were off on the Blu-ray, so a little wary of getting that one. Looks to be the only option for the time being since Synapse said don't expect one any time soon:



I'm sure it'll look great upconverted though.

I had already purchased direct from Synapse too, but I'll just sell that one on ebay to make my money back.

You can see comparison shots of the Italian and upcoming Synapse blu-ray, and it's clear that the Synapse remaster is miles ahead of the Italian one. The Italian 4k blu-ray will use the same master as their standard blu-ray, so I wouldn't even consider getting it. With the Synapse blu-ray, you're also getting the original 4.0 English mix that was used in the '77 theatrical release.

I need some of the scariest movies ever made. Trying to do a bit of shopping and making sure I get some really good scares this year.

I want to help recommend some epic scary movies but I struggle with thinking of ones that are really tense. I tend to enjoy a lot of horror on a 'dark humor' level or appreciate the surreal qualities but not end up feeling goosebumps over them. The scariest movie, for me, I can readily think of is the original Blair Witch Project (1999).

Here's a quick 'top 10 scariest' list (in no particular order, your mileage may vary):
I Am The Ghost (twisted imagery honestly gave me a nightmare)
Grave Encounters 1 (cartoonish but I'm a sucker for abandoned buildings)
The Eye (2002)
Darling
Here Comes the Devil
Absentia
Theatre Bizzare
[Rec] 1-2 (really should be seen back to back as '1 film' for best experience)
Mischief Night
Ringu

This was the first time in years I'd seen it, but I want to say, "I love the ending of The Devil's Rejects." That is all.

I am trying to remember a movie I saw several years ago but I can't remember the name.
I think it was a Japanese movie. And the main character had back pain...
Spoiler:
Turns out the ghost was literally on his back the whole time thus causing his back pain.

Sounds a lot like Shutter. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0440803/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2

Couldn't resist. Also went with the Dark Inker edition. After missing the boat on The Mad Magician Blu-ray from Twilight Time not five minutes after it sold out yesterday, I don't need another regret.

Shout Factory has a 30% off linewide 'Back to School' sale on their website, excludes some preorders and new releases ('...of the Deads').
