Scary Movie Challenge VI

Number six kicks all the dicks.

This is our sixth Scary Movie Challenge and it's going to make the fifth look like the first.

You know the drill by now. Every time you watch a HORROR MOVIE during the month of October, add the name of the movie and a SEVEN WORD REVIEW (no more, no less) in the comments section of this post.

Some clarification: You do NOT have to watch a movie every day. They do NOT have to be movies you have never seen. You do NOT have to watch ONLY horror movies (though we don't know why you wouldn't). The goal is just for all of us to work together and get as many seven word reviews as possible.

We're doing things a little differently this year. You have all spoken and we're trying to adapt, so we'll be creating a new Scary Movie Challenge post every day for each of the 31 days in October. This way you don't have to load through thousands of comments to read the most recent additions (we tried to install a new commenting platform in time that would allow us to filter comments by 'newest' but it wound up not being compatible with Blogger -- just one of the reasons I'd like to migrate over to WordPress [if this is something you can do professionally, email me at fthismoviepodcast[at]gmailcom]). At the end of the month, we'll tally up the comments for all 31 days and have our total.

I know it's tempting to foster discussion based on what everyone is watching, but that's going to throw the count off. Please keep the SMC threads dedicated only to seven word reviews. Each weekend we'll have an open thread where everyone can discuss what they've been watching. Sound good?

Last year, we got over 2,200 That's great! We can do better. I know we can do better.

Also, we want to know who you are so we can read your posts on the podcast. If you're posts are coming up as "Anonymous," please take a second to register and get a proper handle. Thanks everyone!

Hearing everyone get so excited about this for the last few weeks -- and in some cases months -- means the world to me. We do some cool stuff every year on the site, but this is the coolest thing we do. It's the best. You guys are the best. Monsters and horror movies are the best.

Happy Scary viewing.
