31 FLICKS THAT GIVE YOU THE WILLIES: a more official announcement
In an effort to not use the words ‘greatest,’ ‘favorite,’ or ‘best’ in the title of the list we’re compiling with this survey/poll thingy, I have decided to call it (in honor of the criteria Piper over at Lazy Eye Theatre is using to compile his list)
The 31 FLICKS THAT GIVE YOU THE WILLIES. So, I again implore you dear readers, please send in your list of the 31 Flicks That Give You the Willies. And tell your friends that they, too, should send in the list of 31 Flicks That Give Them the Willies. And so on.
Here’s how it’s going to work:
By SATURDAY, OCT. 13 (ohh, Spooky, Saturday the 13th!) you submit your list of the 31 Flicks That Give You the Willies. Films must be feature length and they must be films: no t.v. mini-series allowed. (Sorry, Salem’s Lot fans.) Also, please don’t vote for a series, individual films only. If you want to vote for all three Evil Dead films it’s going to take three votes to do it.
Lists need not be in any particular order, these are nominating lists only. If a film appears on 3 or more lists, it will be nominated. Lists of nominees will be posted as soon as I can possibly get to it, and then the voting begins. We’ll talk more about the voting lists (which will be ranked) and the deadlines for them when the time is right. It will probably be a few days before the end of the month, so the final list can be published on Halloween.
Thanks to everyone who is participating in this. If you’re planning on submitting a list, drop me a line in the comments if you haven’t done so. I’ve received four completed nominating lists already! The first three lists only had one film listed on all of them, but after the fourth lists came in, five more films were nominated. The lists have been fascinating so far, and I can’t wait to see more.
