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

No One Dies, Skeptics, Disembodied Voices, and Housekeepers are all on post 6. It turns out we have already covered gas station attendants back in 2014 with 'Retail Establishment Terrors' alongside markets and shopping malls. This was one of the many Hollie Horror lists we've used over the years that was separated later into its own theme.

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

I'm gonna have to postpone theme voting until tomorrow night (7/29). Too much to do and not enough time to do it. That puts us at 3 days behind last year's schedule, but that's still a good place to be. We'll catch up later.

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

^Added to post 10 suggestions. We've never had a Tom Sizemore entry.

Just realized it's MTV's 40th anniversary so I tacked it onto the Yo! OHMC Raps theme (w/ new link) since it sorta ties together, which makes it a feature theme. It's horror films with tie-in music videos, rap songs/videos, used by rappers sampling horror movie soundtracks, and simply making references in their music.

Yo! OHMC Raps / MTV Turns 40:

Hip Hop Horror - https://www.imdb.com/list/ls052369025/ (19 titles)

Horror Documentaries 2 - https://letterboxd.com/newarchive/li...taries/detail/ (137 titles)

Stephen Thrower - https://thedigitalbits.com/tag/stephen-thrower (?? titles) (1,073 total titles)

Here's this hybrid that's now on post 6. No, it's not complete. If it makes the cut I'll compile the Kim Newman entries into just commentaries since it's interspersed with linear notes. Hopefully we can find some more films with film historian commentaries, too. And yes, technically we have used horror docs back during the first theme nights list in 2009, but for some unbeknownst reason I didn't include links, so there you go.

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

Here's the annual taking a moment to shed a spotlight on the forgotten among us and remind everyone of their existence. These theme suggestions have been hanging around here since this thread started in 2015, and possibly even longer for some:

The Horror of War: (veterans, war scenes, war segments, war related zombies, war crimes, war ghosts, soldiers, bunkers, military, military base, etc.)
https://letterboxd.com/holliehorror/...of-war/detail/ (210 titles)

I Spit on Your Garage: (horror films featuring a garage/parking lot/parking garage/car park/mechanic shop, etc.)
https://letterboxd.com/holliehorror/...garage/detail/ (268 titles)

The Pen is Deadlier Than the Sword - Writers: (horror films with a central character who is a writer)
https://letterboxd.com/holliehorror/...riters/detail/ (158 titles)

Blood Showers: (water turning to blood from a sink, bathtub, shower, drain in a shower/bathtub, etc. and just plain showers)
https://letterboxd.com/holliehorror/...-blood/detail/ (43 titles)
http://flashbak.com/bathroom-nightma...-cinema-21319/ (18 titles) (61 total titles)

Stop Motion Animation Horror:
http://www.buried.com/horrormovies/k...s/stop_motion/ (116 titles)

Some have come close, while others will never know the thrill of victory. (here's looking at you, 2016's Necrophilia in Horror Films).

Also plenty of potential returning themes that have only been used once. See post 2 for those.

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

Theme Nights Voting 2021 has begun!





  • This is for both new and returning, 2 themes.

  • If you've already voted, no problem. Just remember there's been quite a few additions added recently, so please recheck the suggestions list on post 6 periodically. Occasionally new theme suggestions are added after voting starts.

  • There's no limit to how many times you can vote, or how many themes you can vote for. The only "rule" is one vote per theme. You can do it in this thread, or if you prefer privately - PM or via email. Makes no difference to me.

  • Also, keep in mind that some themes have unfinished or better lists/links coming. One such example is the Horror Documentaries / Film Historian Approved theme, which will be cleaned up with hyperlinks directing to the main thread later if chosen.

  • Certain themes might have to be combined with another theme or two if they don't provide enough titles.

  • And finally, don't hesitate to share any last-minute suggestion submissions, which brings me back to what was said earlier -- recheck the list periodically.

I'll throw out a returning theme vote for Theater of Blood. It's only been used once back in 2015 and the perfect time to resurrect it with movie theaters being back in business.

14 subset volunteers still needed, BTW.

50th Anniversary of Monster Cereals:
Serial Killers - https://letterboxd.com/boris1980/lis...illers/detail/ (120 titles)
Monster Mash - https://letterboxd.com/matfield/list.../genre/horror/ (31 titles)
Cereal - https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword/...moviemeter,asc (7 titles)
Movies That Inspired The Monster Cereals - https://letterboxd.com/pd187/list/mo...onster/detail/ (6 titles)
Cereal #2 - https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword/...&genres=Horror (3 titles) (167 total titles)

Just added to post 6. Started off as a joke theme until morphing into something worthwhile, or at least a good entry for the anniversary section on the checklist. They're definitely staples of the Halloween season.

***Theme voting reminder***

Not as many as usual are voting, and I will be posting the first round to make the cut soon. More often than not, a greater of people voting means a greater chance of getting to go straight to the elimination round. Please vote if you haven't already!

13 subset spots left.

I'm in for a subset. Will be back later with theme votes.

Chad, I can do a subset if you need another warm body. I didn't participate last year due to work issues, and this year's not looking a whole lot better, but I'll at least try to hit the subset picks. I can't promise a whole lot more.

As far as theme voting goes, I honestly have no preferences. I'm more than willing to go along with the herd on whatever y'all decide.
