It's a bit early, but.. meh. Last year we started the challenge at 30 Sept dusk like DVDTalk, does anyone want to do that again or just stick to October?

I'm aiming for 50 this year, but hoping for more. This is my current watchlist (though checklist hasn't been finalised on DVDTalk so it may change a bit): http://www.imdb.com/list/ls079779896/

Dusk works for me (the sooner it starts the better, right?), but I have no strong preference either way. I'm going to shoot for 31 officially, but I'm really hoping to blast through that goal if I have an opportunity to.

This is my watchlist, made up of films I'm going to see at the cinema, films I have lying around in piles of DVDs, and films on Netflix.


Dusk on the 30th works fine, I might get in an extra couple of films.

I would love to outdo last year's total (67), but with work that's going to be really tough. I'll shoot for 31 at least.

I am definitely in. No watchlist specifically but I'll be watching mainly from TSZDT. Still have quite a few left in there. I don't really have any set goals either. Last year I watched 106, so I'm hoping to get close to that.

I am certainly in and have been narrowing my watchlist for a couple months. I'm reaching for the unrealistic goal of 150.

I've updated this https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/the+21st+centurys+most+acclaimed+horror+films/mightysparks/ with the latest lot of lists (only 27 more), just in case anyone wants to look at more modern horror.

Also, this is the (ranked) IMDb list of all films that have appeared in at least one list as of the first edition of TSZDT: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls072079418/.

I'm in for maybe 10 because it will kind of get in my way of my 1980s list I am trying to finish by the end of the year.

My main problem with the challenge is that I tend to watch thrillers in October that do not always fit under the horror genre. I also have some movies from TCM on my TiVo from last year that involve ghosts but are comedies or romances, so I am not always sure what fits the horror genre. I will put up what I think is appropriate and if someone says it is not horror I will remove it. Like Eating Raoul is listed as only comedy on IMDb, but it is on TSZTD 1001-2000 and other personal horror list.

I will definitely watch The Babadook and It Follows. I might finally get around to watching Saw if I can convince my husband to watch it with me, because I know that is not my type of film.

I'm in. Certainly going to try anyway! One a day will be a good average for me to go for. I rarely watch horrors at any other time of the year.

Just realized I have a date tonight so won't be able to view the triple feature I was planning on watching. Hopefully I get home soon enough to squeeze in one movie before bed.

Yes, my priorities are in order :shifty:
