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

I happen to love Cronenberg's The Fly, smartypants

World Congress of Itch (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 9 May 2012 15:47 (six years ago) Permalink

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.

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 (six 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 (six years ago) Permalink

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

jungleous butterflies strange birds (Eric H.), Wednesday, 9 May 2012 17:23 (six 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 (six 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 (six 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 (six 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 (six 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.

^^^^ 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.

Hierophantiasis (Jon Lewis), Wednesday, 9 May 2012 17:49 (six years ago) Permalink

I *still* haven't seen it.

I can feel myself gettin' awful mad. I'm out of patience, children.

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 (six years ago) Permalink

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

lol, yeah, there isn't much difference between my "favorite horror movies" list and my "favorite movies" list, thought the former doesn't include like the philadelphia story and repo man.

i did not forget to vote for night of the hunter

Man. Listening to Mancini's score to Lifeforce right now and it's so damn good. Meant to see the movie in time for this poll, but a long visit from the mother-in-law prevented that. Maybe I'd have ended up with three Tobe Hooper joints on my ballot instead of two...

Hierophantiasis (Jon Lewis), Wednesday, 9 May 2012 22:28 (six years ago) Permalink

Sweet. I wondered if anyone else voted for Spontaneous Combustion and The Mangler.

OK, I'm calling it. Balloting is officially closed ...

UNLESS you can provide me a compelling excuse for your tardy ballot while I await Morbs' ballot, which I granted an extension. If I like your story enough and you're reasonably hasty, I'll let it slide.

I'm just waiting to see which Rest Stop movie will place higher.

I think the results have their fair share of happy surprises, though one or two of them are going to test my ability to remain neutral as the "host."

jungleous butterflies strange birds (Eric H.), Thursday, 10 May 2012 13:32 (six years ago) Permalink

Ha ha. Those are the kinds of hints I like to hear.

Speaking of hints, could you maybe just throw us a bone and, I dunno, post the entirety of the results thus far? I mean just real quick. Thanks so much!
