Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

Yeah, when I was going through the list last night, I saw docus and FF films.  Added "monster" as a catchall for various animal-like creatures.

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

Wow!  Thanks for the fantastic list!  I might take you up on the offer to add more... Lol.  We didn't list anything very obscure yet....


As for sub genres,  take a look at the tomb.  I was able to tag everything with those sub-genres easily.  I will help as soon as I can.

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

Crap, how did I forget the Tomb, especially since I'm still a TombMaster!
Stoopid Monkey!
We'll have to cross-reference the 'sheet with the Tomb.  Since the Tomb can do multiple tags, we'll just have to pick the best one for the 'sheet.


edit- I always get caught up in these side projects, Movie Nights, etc.

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

I added some genres for you guys-  I left the ones I was unsure of or haven't seen yet...

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

Very nice, getting filled out nicely, and I'm not talking about your avatar, tongue .

Everyone-  throw out your ideas for categories.  Try to keep them high level, I don't want a "Midget robot dinosaur slasher" category.

Edit- And Lon, "Infected" movies will go under the "Zombie" category.

Why, I oughtta...no.  Azzie is my friend.  I can't kill him.  I won't.

As for some sub-genres:

Monster movies -- Werewolf movies, vampire movies, The Blob

Supernatural -- The Sentinel, Legend of Hell House, Stir of Echoes, Drag Me to Hell...mostly ghost movies/haunted house movies/curse movies

Slasher -- Friday the 13th, Elm Street, Candyman, etc

Meat movies -- TCM, Motel Hell, etc.

Possession movies -- Exorcist, Exorcism of Emily Rose, Demons, Evil Dead

Zombie movies -- Night of/Dawn of/Day of/etc.

Sci-fi horror -- Event Horizon, The Fly '86, Deep Star Six

Spaghetti horror -- Italian flicks

Asian horror -- Ringu, Audition, Ju-On, Ichi the Killer

Psycho Killer -- Silence of the Lambs, Seven, Kalifornia, Maniac

Horror Comedy -- Young Frankenstein, Blood Diner

Documentary -- Best Worst Movie, Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide

Found footage -- Blair Witch, Last Exorcism

Psychological -- Jacob's Ladder, Misery, Monkey Shines

Splatter movies -- Final Destination series, Street Trash, Story of Ricky -- movies whose main selling point is, to coin a phrase from Tony Timpone, lots of red meat and ketchup


Just some ideas.

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

perhaps Body Horror, Exploitation, and Apocalyptic?

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

Yeah, I know the whole infected/zombie thing.  Just easier this way.

You can check out the 'sheet and look over what we did so far in the genre section.  Feel free to change it up if you'd like.  It's kind of an add-on section so if someone sees a movie they like, they could check other ones within the same genre.  But I'm not turning it into the Tomb, where we can tag something with 5 different labels.

sorry already added an Infection category...lol

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

What about cannibal movies? I also think infected and or body horror should be a genre.

Punk- I can download a version (Excel, open doc, PDF formats) when it's done for you.

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

Cool man err monkey, PDF would be great. Thanks.

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

We're about 1/2 way done, but with HFest coming up this weekend, sometime next week.  Remind on this thread next week.

We're at 215 now.  Getting there...

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

I've just taken it up to 240

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

HQ rocks the Casbah.

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

I'm air-guitaring you an awesome solo right now big_smile

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

Hahaha Can't help but laugh imagining an HorrorQueen air guitaring a solo.

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

HQ has finished the list, but there are some things we need to clean up.  She did the majority of the leg work, so everyone give her a round of applause... 
Now we get to go through the list and find errors, discrepencies, that kind of thing.  We've added a few things like 2 columns of genres, so you can sort for Horror + Comedy, or Director + Actor; also are going to add the IMDB rating.  We were thinking about using the Tomb's ratings, but that fluctuates like mad weekly.

So Punk, you're going to have to wait a little bit longer for your PDF, sad .

Also, I gave Lon and Mary a new spreadsheet to start the Next 300 Movies list.  Everyone will get a crack at that after a bit.  The problem is going to be keeping stuff straight, so one step at a time.

And if the Next 300 fills up, we'll do another.  Because that how we roll.

Re: Top 300 horror films that MUST be seen before you die.

Me gets up for a wild screaming standing and jumping ovation for HorrorQueen17.

I don't care azathoth, got all my life to wait and I'm a VERY patient dude. lol

Cool way to go. It Rocks. AND'ROLLS. Hahaha
