HDC Horror Movie Draft Thread

HDC Horror Movie Draft

The Rules

Drafting will begin at 2pm Eastern Standard Time on October 26th with each player being given 12 hours to make their selection(s). The draft order will go from #1-#8 and then from #8-#1. At the end of each round the person who picks last will then pick first for the next round. If you miss the 12 hour gap you will miss your turn. If you are #1 or #8 and it is your turn to make 2 draft picks you will get 12 hours for each round to be fair to others, so if you miss the first 12 hour gap you can only choose for the next round. If you think you might not be online during your turn you may choose someone to post your pick(s) on your behalf. After all 10 rounds are complete you can make up the round(s) you missed in the order you missed them.

You may choose any horror film you like or any sub genre of horror as long as it is in fact a horror movie. When you make your choice list the name of the film, the year and the director, Once all ten rounds are complete, players will be paired in groups of 2s and the HDC community will vote on who has the better list by ranking each film on a scale of 1-5. Community members will then tally their scores and choose their favorite based on who has the higher scores.

My first pick is Alien, 1979, directed by Ridley Scott. One of the few movies that scares the shit outta me every time I watch it, yet I insist on watching it at midnight each time.

^Solid choice

My first round pick is Texas Chainsaw Massacre, 1974, Tobe Hopper. A seminal film that has spawned dozens (hundreds?) of imitators. Social commentary with a chainsaw!

An American Werewolf in London (1981) directed by John Landis. Having won the first-ever awarded Academy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Makeup, this film brings to life the best transformation ever put to screen. The number one choice for werewolf fans for your viewing pleasure. Just keep a good hold of your balloons from those pesky naked Americans.

Supposed to be happy, but I'm only getting colder. Wear a smile on my face, but there's a demon inside.
