I think several decades are strong contenders. We have a of giant monster fans here, so the 50's could be a real sleeper.

Thanks.

Wait till you see the 80s lineup, some of the 90s, and the 00s too!

Indeed.

Although we won't be seeing any of Godzilla's versus films in this. I took Jurassic Park in for 1993, though.


So, I have just entered 2005. The final list should be ready in about an hour. Expect the first match to roll out then.

Lick your lips and shiver in anticipation!

Two questions, if I may.

Are we to consider films NOT included in your highlighted films, but released in the appropriate year? I'm basically asking if movies you haven't highlighted should be a consideration for voters?

How long do we have to cast votes for each pairing?

One other thing:Thanks for putting this together, V!

You have to consider all/most films released in the horror year which is currently up in the ongoing match.

Due to image and data constraints, I am sticking to 5 films for the Qualifying Round, and 3 films in subsequent rounds.

If I have to list all horror movies in a particular year, it might go beyond 3,000-4,000 names (specially for the years after 2000). So I am sticking to just those big/popular/highlight films which made that particular horror year notable.

But, to give everyone a better idea, I shall list some more notable horror films from each year specified in the matches, henceforth.

As long as it takes for you to make a valid decision. But once a particular horror year racks up 5 votes in it's favour, the match is over and we move on to the next match.

So, be fast. Or you might miss out on voting in that particular match!

You are most welcome.


HY1972 - 3 (anglewitch, MichaelMyers, roshiq)
HY1936 - 0

Keep them coming...

I really would hate to see 1936 get shutout, and I know for a fact if Neverending was still posting here this tourny would get his blood boiling ;-]

But Last House made such a big impression on 14 year old newb when I saw it at the drive-in.

1972 is my pick

The Other was also great but obscure film.
