I ended with a whopping 29.5, and that was WITH using 3 wild cards (for the 3 haunted houses I went to). I wish I can say that I went for quality over quality, but having a SAW marathon kinda negates that whole theory.

Whatever, onto next year!

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 18th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31)

I finsihed with 136.5, and have to update my list still. Every year I always say to myself, that the next year I am going to cut down and just do 31, and every year I go back to my OCD self and just binge and shut everything off. This year I needed this. A bunch of months back, we had a medical scare in my family.. and I used the OHMC as an indicator of time. Saying things like, after the OHMC we'll be done. I needed to take my mind off stuff, and so did my wife and the OHMC gave us the chance. I think we're on the good side of this and that it'll be done with and all will be okay... but the stress levels for my wife and I have been through the roof. I thank you all, even though you might have not know it... but I loved reading your comments, or recomendations. It helped me get away a few minutes at a time. I might not have been as active on the forum.. but trust me, I was here and keeping tabs. I love seeing all the familiar names.. and even though I don't know any of you in person... its like I know your tastes in horror films. I thank you all again, and a super special thank you to Chad for once again running the best challenge ever.


Can we set up a facebook group, incase this site goes away and we need a spot to regroup for future challenges?

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 18th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31)

My list is done, I wound up with 131, which is more or less my average. A lot of the first time watches I really enjoyed (Eat Locals, Haunt, Werewolf, The Kindred, Purgatory Road), but I had my fair share of stinkers (Stalled, Blood Beach, Night Beast, Splatter University)... I think the biggest challenge for me was not being able to use the fast forward button on those. And I'll echo what Darkgod said: I don't post a lot of comments but I kept daily tabs on the thread, so thanks to everyone for sharing thoughts and reviews. And, of course, a BIG thank you to Chad for all the work you do. It is definitely appreciated!

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 18th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31)

Finalized my list! 153 total -- which I think is a new high for me (but I'm too lazy to go and check right now ) -- including 109 film FTVs, plus 49 TV/short FTVs.

Spoiler:
I saw three films in theater: Smile was a pretty typical viewing, though my friend and I were the only ones there, so that was nice. Hayride to Hell was a "world premiere," and I enjoyed the Q&A with Bill Moseley and Kane Hodder after (though a lot of the audience seemed more excited to see Farmer Bob -- whose farm it was filmed on and who wrote the script along with his fiancée -- and other locals who were part of the film). Nosferatu featured live organ music throughout, which was a cool way to re-watch it for its 100th anniversary.

I'm bad at picking favorites/rating/ranking, but a few FTV highlights for me were:
-Werewolf by Night
-Last Night in Soho
-The Day of the Beast (didn't expect to enjoy this one as much as I did!)
-The Black Phone
-Nope (though I think it could have been shortened a bit)

Probably others, but that's what springs to mind. Not going to mention any specific least-favorite watches, but I will say I'm with a few others who mentioned they've never used wildcards to get out of a subset pick but were sorely tempted this year, and/or resolved to go ahead and do it next year. I like having my horizons broadened, and I don't mind watching some that are not my cuppa but don't offend my senses either. But I don't know why I force myself to re-watch films that were tortuous to get through the first time, or watch films that I absolutely know (not just from the description but also from spot-checking the files as I uploaded them to my gdrive) that I will truly dislike. Oh well. Definitely more positive experiences than negative, though.

Bunch of stuff on my watchlist that I didn't get to, as always, but there's always next year.

Huge thanks as ever to Chad!

Sad to see another October go by. 103 watches, not as exausted as other challenges lol.
Completed everything, still touching up my list though.

The one I ordered for my son is supposed to be delivered tomorrow but I'm skeptical. Every Vinegar Syndrome order sent to me via FedEx always ends up starting in CT, going to NJ for 1-2 days, back to CT for a day, and finally ending up in RI.

Finished with 146 and 68 first time views. That’s my highest total so far and I still didn’t have time to get through all the titles I was saving.

Also thanks in case anyone checked out my movie on YouTube. We crossed the 500 view mark after i posted it here.

I had a great time with the challenge and want to give a shout out to Chad for the tremendous job he did with organizing and setting everything up this time. We had a great number of prizes this year and I congratulate the winners of the prizes and thank those who contributed the prizes and organized the mailing of them. I can't imagine a better run or supported Challenge!

I had a very successful challenge with 114 watches (a personal best!), with 78 first time views. I completed the Theme Nights and the Checklist with no duplicates. I watched a total of 181:19:19 with an average of 1:35:26 per movie. I watched 88 movies on streaming, 13 on DVD and 13 on Blu-Ray. I watched 23 movies on Shudder with 14 from Tubi, 13 from Kanopy and the rest of the movies (38) on 11 different channels, all watched in the single digits. My breakdown by decades is as follows:
1920's 2 2:47:43 1930's 3 3:24:43 1940's 2 2:44:52 1950's 2 2:40:20 1960's 4 6:44:37 1970's 27 42:35:22 1980's 15 22:24:38
1990's 13 22:00:50 2000's 10 16:06:25 2010's 16 27:14:13 2020's 20 32:35:36.

My list is done, 61 movies this year. Decent number given everything going down this year for me.

Thanks for running this!

I ended up at around 130, and did my usual 110% on the themes, subset, and checklist. Also, for the first time, I carried thru with my goal of reading 100 horror comics for the month. The highlights there were Stray Dogs and The Silver Coin.

I still need to clean up and number most of my list, and do some stats.

Had a blast this year as always, and continually amazed at how much work Chad does for us here, and how great some of your all’s lists are. Someday I’ll put in a modicum of effort and have mini-reviews of each film.

Thank you all for returning every year and being a huge part keeping October my favorite month.

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 18th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31)



This was a weird year. I think it is the first time since I started doing this challenge that I had no 5 out of 5 first time views or drinks. I frequently found myself not enjoying hot topic movies from the main thread but vibing with trashier faire. This was my 13th year of participation and my 13th year hitting the coveted 100+ mark. The 106 entries I watched were in 6 languages (kind of (see entry 29)) hit every theme night but as has been the case for some time now did not complete the entire checklist (the individual crew member checks being my typical poison pill).

Number of 1st time views:
96 out of 106 - 90.6% vs. (2021 - 91.8%)

Number of 1st time drinks:
28 out of 30 - 93.3% vs (2021 - 34.2%)


Number of titles viewed with wife or daughter:
32 out of 106 - 30.2% vs. (2021 - 30.0%)








Most watched Sub-Genre / Type
1). Slasher / Psycho / Homicidal Maniac - 37 out of 106 - (34.9%)
2). Witchcraft / Satanic / Religious - 29 out of 106 - (27.4%)
3). Psychological - 25 out of 106 - (23.6%)


Highest Rated First Time View:
The Barbarian - (4.5 out of 5)

My Daughter's Highest Rated:
Day Shift - (5 out of 5)

Notable 4's

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 18th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31)

^That Imprint Wicker Man set is a beaut.

I ended up with a four year high of 140½. And while I did fail to meet the 150 goal for the 10th straight year, I did manage to complete my others, including the checklist for the first time in ages. I wasn't exactly in the greatest frame of mind for the first half, but thankfully had a complete turnaround by the second, which made all the difference. Overall I had a blast, despite the usual questionable viewing decisions, lack of reviews given and failing to participate in the discussion more. The All the Haunts Be Ours set was easily the highlight.

108½ FTVs (116 total) (77.2%) / 87 Blu-ray / 14 UHD / 1 DVD / 38½ Streaming (46 total)
Goals: 150 total / 100 FTVs / 100 BD/UHD / Theme Nights / Checklist

Re: 100 Movies. 31 Days. The 18th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31)

My list is finally final. I watched a total of 109 with 88 (80.7%) being FTVs. These were on 26 DVDs, 47 Blu, 35 streaming, and 1 VHS tape. I completed the Checklist and the Theme Nights. For the first time I subscribed to Shudder and ended up watching as many movies on that (16) as on my old standby Amazon Prime which accounts for the a jump in streaming things this year. This probably also accounted for an increase in material made in the 2000's and later. Finally a week or so into the challenge I decided to try to hit every item in the checklist. I failed but had a great time doing it, watching a lot of stuff I wasn't even aware of before. The cost was a lot of time spent trying to figure out what to watch for some of the items. Clearly to do this right requires a lot of planning before the challenge begins which isn't something I'm all that good at.

A big thank you to everyone, especially Chad who does such an amazing job each year.

I just got back from my cruise. We had an overnight stopover in London, so, yes, I spent Last Night in Soho drinking in the hotel bar.

I bailed on the challenge on 10/20, but I managed to watch 57 movies with 22 FTVs.

TOP 3 FTVs:
1. DEADSTREAM
2. COME PLAY
3. BLACK FRIDAY

BOTTOM 3 FTVs
1. AARON's BLOOD
2. THE CURSE OF LA PATASOLA
3. COUNT DRACULA

Just a few thanks and reminders to close this year's challenge out...

The usual thanks to everyone for participating and to those who helped in the preparation.

I also failed to properly thank the sponsors outside of the Facebook page. A huge thanks to Joel Morris (IBJoel) for shaking things up with the "IBJoel's Out This World Moon Giveaway" and keeping everyone entertained in the interim. Another huge thanks to Richard Hamilton (GoldenWheels) for 13 years of extremely gracious sponsorship with Hamilton Book. We're eternally grateful as always.

The 'best list' voting wasn't held due to the giveaways being different this year, yet that didn't stop people from casting a vote. Congratulations to Surfinhank for his 63rd consecutive win.

The planning thread for next year's event just went up. The crazy experiment of starting the optional lists prep earlier, etc. was a rousing success, at least in terms of getting things done earlier and making my job less stressful. So a few reminders...

-Don't forget the signup sheet for the subset volunteering will start sometime in June. I'm not sure of the exact date, but it was 6/3 for this one. It'll most likely go up a few weeks before the pre-challenge thread goes live in July, and I'll continue taking volunteers as late as I can.

-Also don't forget to share any theme suggestions you may have before the pre-challenge thread goes up, that is, if you want to qualify for the 2023 list since I'll be posting it not long after the thread starts.

It's always a good idea to have an email subscription to the thread.

One more thing. As far as I know I'm hosting next year's, but the possibility exists I may not. It's dependent on what I have going on at the time and/or if I'm simply burnt out by that point. I only bring it up being next year is #19 and my OCD-riddled brain would be compelled to host #20 as well. I couldn't do the former without the latter, it would be a package deal. If I whatever reason I don't, I'll let you know by the time the pre-challenge thread goes up, and, of course, I would share whatever I have ready to go with whoever wishes to take over hosting duties. Again, not saying anything definite, I'm simply throwing out a "just in case".

Man, I wouldn't know what to do with myself if I didn't have this place to come to in October..... Chad as the worn, comfortable shoe you've come to rely on year after year, but you never take notice of how worn and manky he has become.

Haha
Chad should get his own custom DVDTalk tag. Instead of "DVD Talk Legend", it should read "Old and Manky Shoe"

Agreed. IBJoel, can Chad get the "Worn Shoe" tag?

Also I have this chart that some might find interesting, but man I haven't found a version of it I like enough to put in the rundown:





Additionally if anyone is looking for an advent calendar Costco has a large can German beer one (way better than the Aldi equivalent)



Sneak Peak:

And last thing before I shut up. This costume I got on clearance for the daughter for a 15 year old movie... for kids... girl kids? Weird demo but she is excited to wear it next year.
