rawlinson -> Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (1/6/2012 9:33:40 PM)

It's been over a year since the last results were posted, so time for a year two of the horror list. As the last year we made a top 300, complete with reviews and images, it shouldn't take too long to actually put the thread up as I can raid that one for most of the entries. So I'm going to leave a longer period for voting, closing the thread at the end of September, then I'm going to run down the list throughout October, as a Halloween treat. So no extensions on deadlines for this one. Lists of anywhere from 25 - 150 films. Anyone have any strong feelings on controversial choices from last time? In other words, should we ban The Muppets?

I think we should, just to make Gimli cry. [:D]

Is the last results thread still available? I'd like to peruse it, because I'm sure there'll be quite a few films I've forgotten about.

[:D] Gimli was the only voter for the film.

MonsterCat -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (1/6/2012 9:57:47 PM)

Already working on a list.

I don't know if I'm the only one to consider my third choice as a horror flick, but I'm going to go for it, because I'm a rebel and that's how I roll.




rawlinson -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (1/6/2012 9:58:33 PM)

Do you want to pm me the name? Just to make sure it's something that can be voted for. [:D]




MonsterCat -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (1/6/2012 9:59:01 PM)

Yeah, OK.




rawlinson -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (1/6/2012 10:06:44 PM)

Replied, but yeah that's definitely horror, made the list last time as well.




MonsterCat -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (1/6/2012 10:07:41 PM)

Thanks.




matty_b -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (1/6/2012 10:10:35 PM)

Is it the film Harry made with Dev's mum?

Yeah, that's pretty damn horrific.




rawlinson -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (1/6/2012 10:12:04 PM)

Don't forget, t.v. shows are fine as long as they tell a contained story, eps of an anthology show, individual stories from Dr. Who, Sapphire & Steel, series like Quatermass or The Fades. Just nothing multi-series like The X-Files, or including Dr. Who as one choice. You'd have to choose X-Files: Home, Dr. Who: Blink, etc.

Makes The Bunny Game look tame.

We were talking about The Hottie and the Nottie. It's utterly terrifying.

Exactly, the film Harry made with Dev's mum. And whichever one you're assuming is the hottie in that pairing, shame on you.




SadFace -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (1/6/2012 11:18:12 PM)

I didn't enter the last poll so I'll have a bash at this. How I'm gonna narrow it down though, I have no idea. I think I need to be a harsh bastard.




Rebel scum -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (2/6/2012 1:36:25 AM)

I'll definitely put a list forward, working on it already.

By the way, was Predator banned last time? I reckon it qualifies but I thought I'd check,

EDIT-Also, can I nominate Fantasia's Bald Mountain sequence, or does the rest of the film render it ineligible?




Shifty Bench -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (2/6/2012 1:47:08 AM)

Is The Night of the Hunter allowed?




Gimli The Dwarf -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (2/6/2012 5:46:49 AM)

Count me in. Someone needs to vote for Muppets and Pirates.

You have 150 slots to play with. There's a your mum joke in there somewhere. [:D]

Nothing was banned in the end, I don't think. Predator qualifies as a monster movie. Although there's literally hundreds of better horror films out there.[:D]

It would have to be the whole film rather than one sequence.

Yeah, it got to 59. last time we did the poll. [:)]

Did you miss my suggestion to ban The Muppets? [:D]




Gimli The Dwarf -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (2/6/2012 7:24:03 AM)

Ghosts = Horror. Scary or not, they need to be included!




MovieAddict247 -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (2/6/2012 8:26:35 AM)

Sounds good, count me in.

Hmmm, episode wise then, if it's a two-parter story do you have to vote for the second part? Say, the Empty Child - that was nightmare inducing, but the Doctor Dances wasn't at all.

I'm moving away from that point of view. Hamlet has a ghost. Would we accept Hamlet?

Did you miss Ecc' trying to dance? Scared me. But yeah, both parts.




MonsterCat -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (2/6/2012 9:45:54 AM)

Also - it's, y'know, fucking Pirates of the Carribean.

Two of the films out of that franchise are basically the worst things to happen to humanity since Osama bin Laden.




matty_b -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (2/6/2012 9:46:53 AM)

I assume Backstreet Boys videos are still eligible?

lol you like Backstreet Boys. [:D]




matty_b -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (2/6/2012 9:55:38 AM)

I do like some of their songs, and I'm also listening to PJ Harvey right now which means I'm eclectic but unless she makes a video full of werewolves, vampires and zombies I won't be voting for her in this poll.

Cool, in which case I think the rest of the film kinda rules it out.

I'm actually considering saying it has to be a horror film this time, not vaguely influenced, or a way for you to splurge on your spank bank.

No, but the Muppets are better than Hamlet [:D]

MCC might not be scary, but if I voted for only films I found scary I'd have a very short list. A lot of films that are classic horrors and have intentions to scare just don't work on me. Maybe MCC was intended to scare but it just doesn't work on a lot of people (clutching at straws here!) And I still reckon their version of the Ghost Of Christmas Yet to Come is the best on screen so far and in terms of creating an unsettling atmosphere that sequence is better than anything the likes of Carpenter and Argento have done, and they'll be in here [:D]




rawlinson -> RE: Empire Horror List: Year Two Poll (2/6/2012 10:43:30 AM)

If we rule out Muppets, then we also rule out all non-horror films that use horror imagery, from Backstreet Boys videos to things like Blackbeard's Ghost, the Pirates films, etc. Anyone have strong feelings either way?
