Looks like the Letterboxd theme links for School, Theater, Winter & Fall 2 (4 seasons), video stores and maybe more have died. I'll update them tomorrow.

Forgot to mention those were all updated yesterday. This obviously happens every year, but this one cuts deep since it's from the Hollie Horror account, which is probably our most used source for links. No telling how many dead links we have outside of this year's.

Re: Pre-Horror Challenge 17: Building of the Optional Lists (Themes, Subset, & Checklist)

You know, I was thinking of skipping this this year but it's become such a yearly tradition it'd be too missed even if I don't much take part in the discussions anymore.
In the last few years I've tried to do something different each time when it comes to my viewing. I've done a chronology of horror, watched only franchises, there was that year it was only 80s movies...

This time, I am thinking of going this route, a movie each year from 1920-2020, Ten films a decade and, for the most part if not all of them, films I've never seen before.
