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

Looking like we might be looking at reverse roulette then! I'll try to come up with all-new categories for tomorrow, though if anyone wants to suggest anything, I will take it into consideration!

For reference, last year's categories were:
John Carpenter
Classic Halloween Ideas
Zombies
Foreign Cinema

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

I went with an obvious throughline for all categories this year. And yeah, some of these are not quite "biting the bullet" (and some VERY MUCH ARE), but honestly I would like most people to have fun with this, since that's what's most important to me and I assume you all, as well. I also didn't want to repeat anything from my list last year and made an effort to find more items that (as of now) are free to watch.
Spoiler:
RLM
Chopping Mall
Silent Night, Deadly Night 2
Trick or Treat
Death Spa
Hack-O-Lantern
Suspiria
(you pick!)

FFF (in keeping with the genre, these are all sort of a mixed bag)
The Last Broadcast
The Amittyville Haunting
The Outwaters
Evil Tapes
What Happens Next Will Scare You
The Devil's Doorway


WTF
Robo Vampire
Evil Bong
The Video Dead
Wishmaster 2
Slumber Party Massacre II
The Void


T&A
Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama
Aerobicide/Killer Workout
Cheerleader Camp
Cam
Slumber Party Massacre
Elvira
(and I'll just leave that open to your interpreatation, no wrong answers!)

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

Here's the 2023 Subset List in no particular order (aside from a few assigned dates) with the physical media and streaming guide included. The theme/subset hybrid table with all the bells and whistles is coming sooner than later, and same goes for the subset threads. Until that time the current status of the assigned dates can be found on post #27 of the pre-challenge thread.

As always, an eclectic mix with a few classics, modern, some future OHMC "favorites", some gory, psychotronic, Gothic, obscure, Some Romero, Argento, Deodato and Hooper, erotic, family-friendly, a film with zero dialogue that's not a silent, avant-garde, no less than 3 video nasties, 3 Halloween-themed and 2 Category III flicks, cheeseball, A Canadian kid whose hair won't stop growing and sees dead people, a film with "blood, sweat, piss, cum, spit and vomit dripping in every frame" (that's a quote). Some more anaglyph 3-D, foreign, dueling Serbian serial killers, a film that's still playing theaters and an "exercise video" with leg warmers, boobs and zombies. And Elvira! Quite a few have recent first-time Blu-ray and UHD releases (17. A new record) and upgrades, plus an explosion of 80s films that's more than twice that of last year (17. A new record. Maybe).

If I missed something please let me know and I'll update accordingly. Comments welcome.

There will be more additions and updates for both the physical media and streaming links.

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

As a reminder, there's an Arrow sale going on right now at Barnes and Noble. That could be an option for a couple of the subset films. Any other good sales right now? Aside from Diabolik, any good places for imports?

I used to order so much from Amazon UK and Zavvi. Now many titles won't ship to U.S. from Amazon UK. And does Zavvi just not have the sales or selection it used to? It seems like no one mentions them any more.

Orbit DVD and Grindhouse Video are good places to order boutique blurays. The former has free shipping with 3 items or more and the latter is having a buy 2 get 1 free sale on Arrow titles right now.

Don't forget there's a Rifftrax that's supposedly one of their better ones. It's one of the few subsets I haven't watched despite owning it, but I do know its reputation. I have a soft spot for lesser known regional slashers, and you gotta love the fact VS is giving this and Night Screams the UHD treatment loaded with extras. That said, I purposely made sure to include some more 'top-tier' slashers to cleanse the palate if need be.

Yes, really nice list there! I've been holding off on Brotherhood of the Wolf for years thinking that it's coming due (it's also like 3.5 hours long....).

CHECKLIST CONSTRUCTION

Let's build it!

Once again I'm still in the process of plugging in the suggestions, etc. That said, feel free to give any new suggestions at any time, and I will let you know precisely what we need once I get everything up-to-date.

The usual - Every entry from actors to writers is/will be updated with the exception of the permanent rotating actors (Karloff, Lee, Legosi, Price & Cushing). Anything beyond that point that's in red has been updated or is a completely new section. A few of last year's entries are still there (e.g. horror film tropes) but will eventually be updated.

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

And here's all the previously used tropes since that section started in 2018. I try and keep them fresh every year if possible, although a couple have been regurgitated with different wording.

Spoiler:
Jump Scare
No Cell Coverage
The Abandoned Place
The Vengeful Spirit
Death By Sex
The Final Girl
Flickering Lights

The Feline Fright
"Let's Split Up"
The Mirror Scare
The Suddenly Undependable Vehicle
The Invincible Killer
Dream Scares
Mythology Exposition

Evil Clown
Nobody believes the main character
To the library for research
Cute child doing creepy things
The refrigerator door or cabinet scare
Nature's revenge
Running down the middle of the road while being chased by a car

Killed during sex
New House, New Problems
No cell phone service
Making dumb decisions
The creepy gas station attendant
The evil doll that comes to life
The mirror scare
The suddenly unpredictable vehicle

Lullabies and rhymes that forewarn the terror
Characters ignoring all the red flags
Morticians eating on the job
Toilet-based scares
The harbinger of doom
Heart ripped out while beating
Ghost towns / Abandoned mines
Ancient Indian burial ground
