2017 Halloween Horror Movie Challenge

Post by Alien Redrum » Tue Sep 26, 2017 12:02 am

Below is a copy and paste from last year. I only had to add thee 2016 link because, once again, I smoked your bitches. This weekend is October first. This is your chance to get pumped up. So here we go:

It's time once again for the Halloween Horror Movie Challenge. I kicked y'alls ass last year. You gonna let me win again? Probably. Y'all are nothing but a bunch of L7s.

It's that time of year again! The 8th Annual Halloween Horror Movie Challenge!

The goal is to watch as many horror movies as you can during the month of October. If you're unsure what qualifies:

The IMDb is a good source to determine its potential horror movie status. If you're unsure, asking in the discussion thread is advised. Everything from horror-comedies, sci-fi horror, wretchedly bad horror, kiddie horror, creature features, erotic horror, Masters of Horror, silents, made-for-TV movies, etc. will count. Mini-series count as one despite the running time. LEGITIMATE STAND-ALONE DOCUMENTARIES ONLY. NO FLUFF - That refers to featurettes produced exclusively for the film's disc as supplemental material. For example, don't try and pass off the featurettes, interviews, making of and the like as part of your list.

Like last year, TV SHOWS ARE ALLOWED! This includes American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, True Blood, Tales from the Crypt or Darkside or ANY shows YOU deem worthy of the horror name! Simply name the show and list the episode(s) you watched underneath.

DON'T VIEW THE SAME FILM MORE THAN ONCE! This literally means, don't watch Tourist Trap on October 1, discuss it, and then watch Tourist Trap on October 31 and discuss it again! Once is enough! However, if you want to watch The Exorcist, and then watch The Exorcist: The Version You've Never Seen, go for it! They're different enough! I'm allowing it!

Finally, I'm pretty sure MOST of us here have Netflix accounts, so if you're able, feel free to post recommendations and/or updates for others to refer to so they can watch more movies instantly.
