I'm really sorry but it actually is. I don't remember it from last time at all. I seem to be completely blanking out the countdown.

Last time it was just films. I brought up the idea of expanding the boundaries of the list a little while back in the thread.

quote:

What I would like to do with the list is make it even more interesting by keeping those real borderline cases, but expanding the boundaries of the list by allowing people to vote for up to 250 choices, but making it a full horror list. Not just voting for films and select t.v. episodes, but including novels, short stories, plays, radio plays, etc. I'd even include board games and computer games, and make it a list about horror culture. But I don't know if there'd be enough interest in doing that.


and the general feeling seemed to be postive.

Last thing I remember was breaking the news to Gimli about The Muppets.

Here's the basics

quote:

1. Lists can be anywhere between 25 and 250 choices.

2. You can include films, television series, music videos, adverts, novels, novellas, short stories, short story collections, plays, poems, radio plays, audiobooks, board games, video games. The only thing I ask is that you make clear what it is you're voting for. For example, Lovecraft's Call of Cthulhu has been a short story, a video game, a rpg, more than one radio play and a film. Let me know what you're actually voting for. If there's anything you want to vote for that I've overlooked, mention it on thread and I'll let you know.

3. All the borderline stuff like Muppets/Simpsons, etc are fine.

Same deadline, end of September, and you can edit your lists up to a certain point. Sometime in September I'll say no changes to any lists already in and get those counted, but new lists will still be ok up until the end of month.


The only thing changed since is I added the urban legends thing after they were asked about.

If anyone makes a crack about this being the equivalent of helping the elderly across the road I'll borrow Reb's ban-hammer. And I won't be using it for banning.

It is beginning to feel like a conversation between a patient and a carer in an home for the elderly.

Adverts you say? Does the Frosties add where the annoying kid rhymes 'grrrrreat' with 'gate' count? I mean, it wasn't Iron Man levels of scary, but it does have a Serbian Film, gouge your eyes, scrub your brain type feel to it.

Don't think I remember that one. They should do horror film inspired food ads. They could do A Serbian Film inspired one where they pull out someone's teeth and choke them to death with a baguette.

Same here I think.

I reckon I'll struggle to get beyond 25 films because I haven't really been frightened by a film, programme or book since I watched American Werewolf in London as a kid. I've found things revolting and I've been disgusted by things but for me a horror is something that makes you scared or at least creeped out not something that makes you feel nauseous.

Outside of a few films it's not really a genre I get excited by but I shall endeavour to send in a list.

Lists of 25 are fine, as are lists of just films.

Just realised with that one that you link to one of my many aborted personal lists rather than the poll list.

This is the link needed

Both Brazil and Muppet Christmas Carol are ineligible for the 70s list. I'm putting my foot down.

I've not - I'm not sure I've read any of his stuff. Although I'm wondering if I know his name because of the L Ron Hubbard thing.

He wrote some of the original Star Trek eps, so you might know him from that. It's just you mentioned cats and Fluffy is a story about a lovely little kitty...

I've been doing some research to try and help remind myself of some short stories to include in my list for this, there was actually a short story collection focused solely on horror stories about cats.
