1. Watch 13 Scary/Horror/Halloween-Themed films, etc. from midnight October 1, 2020 through on October 31, 2020 (use your own time zone to set the ending time).

2. Theatrically released films and short features count as 1 point each. Running times are irrelevant. TV specials (e.g. "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!") and individual episodes of anthology TV series (e.g. "The Twilight Zone") also count as 1 point each. For episodic TV series, 2 hour-long episodes (e.g. "The Walking Dead") count as 1 point and 3 episodes of 30 minute-long episodes (e.g. "The Munsters") count as 1 point.

3. Two of the 13 films, et. al. must be new discoveries, movies you've never seen before. The point of this is to see those few movies you've always meant to see, but never got around to. Please specify new discoveries in your film list by making them bold, adding asterisks, different colors, etc.

4. Come here and talk about 'em.

5. There is an uber-category, the Ultimate Splatter Challenge for those who wish to put all of the rest of us to shame. This is the heavyweight division. These people, if they choose to accept the challenge, must view 31 horror/scary/Halloween themed movies before dawn on Nov. 1st. Ten new discoveries are recommended for this one. The rest of us will bow down in awed reverence to these truly "Splatterific" HTF members. The bragging rights will be awesome and long lived.6. What movies qualify? If you wanna include it, go for it. There will be no hairsplitting. If The Wizard of Oz sends you to the dresser for a fresh pair of boxer shorts, all the power. At the end of the challenge, the totals will be added up based on the point system outlined in number 2 above.

Reserve your spot below!

My list of watched films. First time viewings will be in BLOOD RED. Theatrical viewing (yeah right....) will be in CORPSE BLUE.

My ratings:
1 Star = Garbage! Bad on every level! AVOID!
2 Stars = Below average, probably wouldn't watch it again.
3 stars = Good. Not bad, not great. Might watch it again.
4 stars = Excellent! I recommend.
5 stars = As good as a film gets, WATCH IT!

Placeholder. If I average one film per day, I'm usually doing pretty well. This is one case where if they'd decided not to play football, I would have watched more movies. But they're playing (for now), so ....
