*edit*

 

Watch as many horror movies you can take in 31 days.

 

Thirty-one total.  One a day.  Thirteen.  Twenty-two.  Six?

As many as you want, just have fun.

 

****

 

Every night (or day) in October! It's tough, but can it be done? I tried last year but ended up having to go away for business and it buggered up my schedule.

Half of the fun was creating the spreadsheet of movies/format/date.

Who's in with me?

Yeah, I did this challenge a few times on Home Theater Forum. I did the 13 horror film challenge instead of the full 31. It's a blast. You can't repeat films from year to year and you have to watch a certain number of new horror flicks that you haven't personally seen before. Everyone provides their lists along with their own synopses and reviews.

Sounds like fun. I wouldn't be able to keep up with the pace of one-a-day, but I like the idea of an organized way to view movies I haven't seen before. I look forward to seeing some folks lists of horror movies.

Wouldn't watching that many horror movies in a row turn you into either a scaredy-cat coward or an ax murderer?

That being said, here's one I'd recommend for your list,

Candyman

That movie bummed me out like no horror movies has.

As for watching horror movies for 31 days. That would either grind me down and bum me out, or at the end, I'd just be laughing when someone got their head cut off with a chainsaw, and the shocks and gore wouldn't affect me anymore.

I'd be down for a movie a day for 13 days here. One movie I recommend is 1408. I love this movie. I only wish it was rated R.

31 days would be rough. I don't think I've even watched 31 movies of any kind within a month.
13 might be possible as well.

No Ta, I have enough horror in my life without going out of my way to watch it....

To clarify/correct some comments I made earlier: The 13 movie challenge does not necessarily have to occur in 13 days. Just as long as you watch 13 horror films at some point within the month, you're good to go. And in regards to the comment about the "rules", movies CAN be repeated from year to year but there was a minimum number of first-time viewings that you had to incorporate into the mix.

I'm definitely in if enough people show interest.

Ahh I haven't seen this one in a LONG time and have to put it on my list.

I think you guys are onto something here with 13 movies. 31 is extremely hard for anyone with a full time job, a wife, and pets (or kids). Basically tough for anyone with a life!

To follow tradition though, my 13th movie would have to be Halloween on the 31st.

I've attempted this every year for many years since I am a huge Halloween and horror fan. What I try to do is something horror-related each day during October. This can be watching a movie, reading a horror story, or just going out to look at Halloween decorations or merchandise. There are so many short old horror movies (80 minutes and less!) that the movie challenge might be do-able. Usually I end up falling back on reading a chapter of a Stephen King book for some of the days.

You can watch whatever you want. There is likely to be differing opinions on what is or is not horror, however. If I remember correctly, some people were watching movies that would probably be better classified as thrillers.

BTW, for the last 2 years I have watched House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects on Halloween Night.

Too bad Halloween isn't in mid-summer, when there's absolutely nothing on TV. I'd easily do 31 films in a month then. With; fall programming, football, and basketball ramping up, plus one of the best months of gaming for all consoles, movies are at the tailend of a very, very looooonnnggg list right now.

Good luck to those of you that accept this challenge.

Recommends:

The Cottage
The Descent
Identity
Wrong Turn
Quarantine*
The Mist
Scanners
What Lies Beneath
The Hills Have Eyes 2
Wolf Creek

*You'll have to get out of the house to see this one.

Unless you've already seen "[Rec]" - looks like it may be a direct frame by frame remake!

Too bad they show the very ending in the trailer, unless of course they come up with a new ending....which I doubt.


All good recommendations spyder.

I think I may start with the orginal "The Haunting" followed by the 1999 DTS remake; that should give my new dual MFW-15's a good work out!!.

Yeah, I'd like to have included [Rec] on my list, but I've never seen it...looked for it, but never found the damn thing. When you mentioned The Haunting, it reminded me that both House on Haunted Hillmovies are must-see as well. Score the 2nd of the two (Return to HH) on BD and spend a whole month just on bonus features!

What about the 2nd makes it better?

Great suggestions all around. Here's my schedule, I'm gonna go for the whole enchilada! I have a wife and 2 young kids but most nights I can be in front of the big screen by 8:45 PM. I scheduled movies with longer running times for weekends, and shorter movies for weeknights. I tried to mix it up a bit so I have different types of horror: classics, newer stuff, heavy, light, quality, shlock, mainstream, independent. I had a hard time narrowing it down to 31 movies, and there are a lot of great titles I left off the list because I've seen them too recently or don't own them.

Date Title
10/1/2008 The Black Cat (1934)
10/2/2008 An American Werewolf in London
10/3/2008 Creepshow
10/4/2008 Rosemary's Baby
10/5/2008 The Others
10/6/2008 Dracula A.D. 1972
10/7/2008 House on Haunted Hill (1958)
10/8/2008 Black Sabbath
10/9/2008 Spider Baby
10/10/2008 Burnt Offerings
10/11/2008 The Exorcist
10/12/2008 Haxan (Witchcraft Through the Ages)
10/13/2008 The Fly
10/14/2008 Evil Dead 2
10/15/2008 The Last House on the Left
10/16/2008 Freaks
10/17/2008 The Thing (1982)
10/18/2008 Jacob's Ladder
10/19/2008 Dead Alive
10/20/2008 Something Wicked This Way Comes
10/21/2008 House of 1000 Corpses
10/22/2008 The Leopard Man
10/23/2008 The Nightmare Before Christmas
10/24/2008 The Fearless Vampire Killers
10/25/2008 Don't Look Now
10/26/2008 Night of the Living Dead
10/27/2008 Phantasm
10/28/2008 Ernest Scared Stupid
10/29/2008 Halloween
10/30/2008 The Changeling
10/31/2008 Sleepy Hollow

I may make last-minute substitutions depending on my mood or if something interesting arrives from Netflix or I buy something new. Also I am going to try to squeeze in viewing a horror miniseries or two (Stephen King's "It" for starters) during my lunch breaks using my portable DVD player, so I can get the full overdose of horror!

Thanks for posting your list as well Bob. Lots on there I haven't seen (I might skip on "Ernest Scared Stupid" though)

The Hills Have Eyes 2 (Remake, thanks for the reminder, Irmo) should be seen, if for no other reason, than it stands as a shining monument to the quality one can still achieve on SD DVD. The PQ is ridiculously outstanding, particularly for a "low-budget" horror film. Craven taught his son well!

Also, I'd like to add that if you want something disturbingly horrifying rather than just gory or "scary" in the traditional sense, Funny Games will linger on in the mind longer than any of the ones I listed previously. To me, that's a true "horror" movie, as opposed to what we often misinterpret for "horror"...what is truly more likely to fill the "terror" genre. If you're not overtly horrified at what happens in that film, you're not human.

Airboss, have you seen the documentary "Cinemania"? This is not horror but when I saw that you actually watched 6 movies in one day, I thought of this movie. These people are film-obsessed!

(My personal record is 5 movies in one day...but I was immobilized at home with a foot injury!)

Bob, no I haven't but it's at the top of my NetFlix cue. Should arrive in time for a weekend viewing, thanks for the heads up.

The most movies I've viewed in one day was 8 (actually on several occassions). Weekdays I will watch at least one, sometimes two. On weekends I'll squeeze in 3 to 8 movies. I watched the 383 minute director's cut of "The Best of Youth" (Meglio gioventù, La) in one sitting. I also watched the 280 min director's cut of "Until the End of the World" (Bis ans Ende der Welt) in one sitting. Certainly didn't hurt that both are great movies.

Ever since purchasing a region free DVD player and setting up my home theater I've been addicted to movies. The region free player opened up a whole new world of film previously unknown to me and now I can't get enough.

I know I should get a life but until I move away from my present location I will continue my viewing habits.

I live in a military town with a population of over 70,000 people and the average age is 22.9 years.

From Wilipedia:
"Jacksonville, NC is the youngest city in the United States with an average age of 22.9 years old. The low age can be attributed to the large military presence."

Everything in this town is geared around the 23 year old male Marine so there isn't much for individuals my age to do. I watch movies and bide my time until I can retire and move back to my hometown of Memphis (where my family is located); once there I can rejoin the real world and I'm sure my movie viewing will drop off some.

BTW, Barton Fink is one of my favorite movies!
