^That is one fantastic looking display. Some of those prints I wasn't even aware of, or just how many alternate versions exist. I know They Live alone has at least five additional posters in Ghana style.

The Jawsploitation doc arrived on Shudder today, and the fans are wildly speculating about this Joe Bob video on tonight's season finale:


And now a few words from Joe Bob about tonight's season closer of THE LAST DRIVE-IN...tune in at 9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific!

People in the facebook groups have said he slipped up at the meet and greets that season 6 was already a go, and they're moving production to the old Walking Dead sets.

Re: Pre-Horror Challenge 19: Building of the Optional Lists (Themes, Subset, & Checklist)

OK, I've got over half of the lists created; here's what I've got finished so far. First link is the list itself -- in a few cases Chad's original link serves the same purpose (e.g., keyword search for "zombie") so I didn't create a new list. Second link is with the already-used subset selections omitted, and third is only the ones that are on TSZDT (still minus the already-used subsets).

Indie/Arthouse Crossover: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
1. Jawsploitation: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
2. What's Your Name?: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
3. Breaking the Fourth Wall / Meta-Horror: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
4. The Horror Show Guide: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
5. Gothic Horror: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
6. R.I.P. TCM Underground: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
7. Location-Based Horrors: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
---Bonus list: bang for your buck! -- aka, titles that appeared on 3 or more location lists from the full list above. Useful if you want to cover as many locations as possible, or just make sure you're covered if some of the lists are not 100% accurate.
8. Zombies: imdb search | minus already-used | on tszdt
9. Wrong Side of the Art: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
10. All the Colors of Giallo: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
11. Vanity Projects / Eat the Rich / Inanimate Objects / Children's Books: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
12. Inspired By True Events: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
13. Joe Bob Briggs / Black Cats / Broken Mirrors / Ladders / F13 Films: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
14. Video Nasties / Hong Kong Category III: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
15. Defunct Studios: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
16. FrightFest Guide: Vampire / Grindhouse / Werewolf: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
17. Chronological: 1923 Vs. 1948 Vs. 1973 Vs. 1998: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
18. Teen Screams!:
19. 100 Years of Warner Bros. Horror: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
20. Vampires: imdb search | minus already-used | on tszdt
21. Vidmark Entertainment / Video Stores: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
22. Slashers / Serial Killers:
23. In Memoriam: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
24. The OHMC Passport to Terror - Global Edition: imdb search | minus already-used | on tszdt
---For this one, I'm not going to do every country on the list, but I've provided an example using Argentina; substitute the country code of your choice (from Chad's links) into either the second or third link.
25. Horror Anthologies: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
26. Don't Go to Sleep: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
27. Supernatural / Quiet/Soft / Seances:
28. Werewolves / Were-Creatures / Full Moon:
29. Parasite Infestation: full list | minus already-used | on tszdt
30. Demonic Possession / Satanic / Witchcraft / Hell:
31. Halloween / Samhain:
Horror Comedies Crossover: imdb search | minus already-used | on tszdt

I'll add the rest into this post as I finish them.

I watched THEY CLONED TYRONE on Netflix last night, and it was a hoot. I'd watch it again. Maybe add Blaxploitation to the sub-genre checkpoint this year? It would also work for Mad Scientist.

Devil Fetus 1983 - Nasties/ Cat III. This one is available free on Archive.org

I think Red To Kill 1994 would be a good one for the Nasties/Cat III, but only thing I can find is an out of print DVD of it

Yeah, surprised we haven't done it yet. It'd make a great theme suggestion, too.

Yeah, that's the problem and why I tacked Cat III on to Video Nasties. The nasties list has practically every title covered thanks to companies like Severin. Cat III is the exact opposite with physical releases either OOP or just unavailable. I have Red Spell Spells Red as a suggestion, but the Error_4444 limited Blu for it and Centipede Horror is sold out, and both aren't getting standard releases until December. The Archive.org link (I think) is the censored cut.

We've already covered The Seventh Curse, Seeding of a Ghost and The Untold Story, which really just leaves a few choices, at least as far as Blu-ray goes:

Calamity of Snakes and Dr. Lamb from Unearthed Films.
Ebola Syndrome UHD from Vinegar Syndrome.
Made in Hong Kong: Volume One box set (The Demon's Baby and Erotic Nightmare / The Deadly Camp is not Cat III) from Vinegar Syndrome.
Men Behind the Sun - from Austrian and HK imports, and not sure if either are still in print (Mediabook currently out of stock at Diabolik).

And forgot to mention we'll have 2 subsets with this one since both are celebrating anniversaries.

You're on the list. Thanks. That puts us at 23, which is one shy of last year's total.

I'll give a subset update soon.

Re: Pre-Horror Challenge 19: Building of the Optional Lists (Themes, Subset, & Checklist)

Subsets are looking good! I unfortunately didn't get a chance to give an update over the weekend like I was planning. But I'll let you know what themes need more subset representation over the next couple of days.

Post #9 is up to date as of this post.

____________________________________________________________

Also, last year we had 40 subsets. Here's all the themes that will have more than one subset including the obvious:

The Category of Nasty: An Exploration of Banned & Extreme Cinema - 2
The FrightFest Guide: Volume 2 - 3
Chronological Horror Years Faceoff XI - 4
1980's Video Companies Spotlight - 2
Farewell Banana Man, Goodbye Scorpion, Godspeed Cannibal Man & Adieu Mr. B.I.G. - 4
Danza Macabra: An Exploration of Gothic Horror Cinema - 2

42 total this year. The general rule of thumb is any anniversary or RIP from a multi-theme gets an equal amount of subsets. I usually do the same with books (Frightfest), but Gothic was the exception. I just added 1 more (as opposed to 3) since those books are just an extension of each other.

And please don't forget to vote on the crossover picks if you haven't. There's a couple that could end up winning that also are potential subset picks.
