I'm not sure I can keep biting my tongue about the 2-ton elephant in the room that has not yet submitted a ballot (and, from all I gather, will not).

irony: I can't work on a ballot tonight bcz I have to write about Barnabas Collins.

I would really like to see your ballot, Morbz (not a euphemism).

I think yours and emil.y's are going to have the most "things I not seen and need to see ASAP" value for me.

things I HAVE not seen, OBVIOUSLY. GOD.

How have I never known of the existence of "Miracle Mile" before this minute? Looks really fun.

ha, I did vote for angst. I think it was my one and only non-nommed vote, not sure how it slipped by.

it's at least 15 years ahead of its time in style and technique. wish the director would let the original cut be screened but he's gone all lucas on us.

OK, I am now sitting at 49 ballots. I know I said I would close the polls about one half-hour from now, but I know there's got to be at least one more ballot sitting out there somewhere, right?

hey look, that page the good doctor linked to offers a free download of the angst soundtrack!

I think you should hold out for the magic number, Eric. To have accumulated one short of your stated goal & have to stop at that point.. you'd think morbs could at least eke out a quick top-20, right?

can I just make up a ballot of every whale, tourner, and silent horror movie and submit it on morbs' behalf

diamanda ram dass (Edward III), Wednesday, 9 May 2012 15:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

Can't get mine done for 36 hrs at least.

I happen to love Cronenberg's The Fly, smartypants

I will wait for Morbs' ballot.

If anyone wants an extension beyond, oh, say the next couple hours, they need to state it explicitly in this thread.

i could vote twice if that would help, got all these sockpuppets lying around doing nothing.

I am sending mine RIGHT NOW.

Miracle Mile unnerved the shit outta me when I was 10.

Can't wait for Walter Chaw's upcoming book on the film.

When do you think the rollout will begin, Eric?

You should be receiving a ballot from "Mustachioed Ponies" soon.

He will have a deep voice and will probably be wearing sunglasses and a trenchcoat.

I can do another ballot where I remember Vampyr and Night of the Hunter.

Kevin John Bozelka, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 17:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

I was originally aiming to rollout starting next Monday, but I think I'll need an extra day or two to gather some quotes. Haven't even started that yet.

jungleous butterflies strange birds (Eric H.), Wednesday, 9 May 2012 17:22 (2 years ago) Permalink

I figure groups of 15 over seven days (last day = 10) should be grand.

As in:

jungleous butterflies strange birds (Eric H.), Wednesday, 9 May 2012 17:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

I would very much like Morbs to get in a ballot, as I'm hoping he might bump up some of the older stuff (not an age joke). Although I'd like oddities to make it in, and I don't really give a shit about established canon, I'll definitely be annoyed if there's barely anything pre-50s...

emil.y, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 17:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

Just sent mine. I hope I listed them correctly-- 50. is my favorite, 49. is my second favorite, 1. is my least fave out of these 50, etc.

Hierophantiasis (Jon Lewis), Wednesday, 9 May 2012 17:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's crazy how many of my all-time favorite movies on the list I had to disallow for not being horror by my compass.

Hierophantiasis (Jon Lewis), Wednesday, 9 May 2012 17:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's crazy how many of my all-time favorite movies are horror.

jungleous butterflies strange birds (Eric H.), Wednesday, 9 May 2012 17:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

Ha yeah. My top three aren't just my favorite horror movies; they're my favorite movies.

I think I forgot Night of the Hunter! After all that talk. Sheesh.

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Wednesday, 9 May 2012 17:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

^^^^ otm!!!! i hadn't realized that before i made this list, but yes.
life is horrifying, people are terrible, and horror movies are the best.

I didn't forget it, and it's an all-time fave, but I had to disallow it.

agree w/ all this. tho there are over 10 canon films from the 60s/70s I dropped from my ballot to make room for other stuff, my breakdown by decade still looks like:

20s - 2
30s - 2
40s - 1
50s - 3
60s - 7
70s - 18
80s - 8
90s - 5
00s - 4

apparently 1973 was the most horrifying year on record, and, with one off-the-wall exception, all my post 80s picks ended up being non-US.

kino's blu-ray of ganja and hess came out yesterday. one of my last ballot cuts.

diamanda ram dass (Edward III), Wednesday, 9 May 2012 19:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

Burton's Dark Shadows is set in 1972, which explains why it's not horrifying I guess.
