Topic: HM HorrorFest 2011 Official Announcement and Schedule!!!!

Hi everyone!

First, the important stuff.
2nd, the schedule.
3rd, details.

First:
HorrorFest starts on Friday, October 28th, 2011, at 6PM US Eastern time.  The schedule is set for US Eastern time, so adjust to your time zone.

Everyone needs to view the movies on their own.  I tried to put as many movies that have YouTube feeds as possible.  I can't stream anything without risking a massive lawsuit.

The Skype conversation will be audio & text only, unless some people want to video each other.  There will be no audio recording of any of HFest.  I will be setting up the conversation, and everyone who is on my contact list will be automatically added to the call.

The Skype conversation will be called "HM Halloween Fest 2011".

If you plan on attending, post your Skype name here.  Or add me & my assistants to your contact list.  You may not be able to get onto the conversation once it starts if I and my assistants (see below) don't have you in our list beforehand.

my Skype name is 'azathoth1945'
My assistants' Skype names are-
Lon- 'loud_lon'
HorrorQueen- 'horrorqueen17'
Baby_Firefly- 'fairyprincessme'
RevengeBiteMe- 'revengebiteme'
Creature- 'thepsychedeliccreature'

Second:

This will be different from the normal Movie Night format.  There may or may not be someone running the show (i.e. me or one of the assistants).  If not, just start the film at the right time.  If people come in later, tell them where you (or the group) are at in the film.

Here is the original file with clickable links to IMDB.
Fancy picture of the schedule.  I think it explains itself-

Third:
Make sure you have the latest version of Skype.
You can post questions here if you need help.
If people want to get together to watch certain films, feel free to post what films you will likely be attending.


Finally, thank you to all those who helped me.  Lon, Baby, Renee, Cap Howdy, Beth, Tylor, and all the others who sent in ideas- you all rock!  big_smile

(Kind of amazing how 3 months of work turns into 1 page of text)  lol

Azzy that is fantastic work! Thanks so much for putting all that effort in. I've just downloaded it and put all the GMT times in, then colour coded what I will and won't be able to see, and what I'm going to try my best to get to anyway big_smile (I'm a bit of an anal freak like that - and you can have that one for free Az lol)

That is exactly the reason I'm posting a schedule, for people to drop in and out as they please.  I have you on my contacts list, so you can hop in (and out) whenever you want!

Part 2 of my shameless self-promotion.

edit- heh, I see someone shared my Facebook post about this while calling me a lunatic.  Such high praise!  lol

Ace told me to "rock the house" with his film.

Speaking of which- you can watch 'Gun Town' for free all of October by going to his website here.  Nice guy, isn't he?  (Now go buy lots of his discs so he can make the sequel!)
