Fun with the Willie List

If you haven't jumped on board and started compiling your nominees for our 31 Flicks That Give You the Willies, man, I just don't know what I can do to convince you. Do I need sign you up for Netflix and come over to your house with some pumpkins to carve to get you in the mood?

I've received twenty (20) ballots so far and there have been a whopping sixty-three (63) films nominated already. All the usual suspects are represented--if I have to log one more vote for The Exorcist I'm going to stab myself in the eye with a fork. There have also been plenty of obscure films (some I haven't heard of, which is particularly exciting) and a bunch of left-field choices. The voter who listed Fight Club felt the need to include a parenthetical justification; the one who listed Hot Fuzz did not. So far I've only had to disqualify one vote, so most of you are either paying attention or just don't like t.v. movies. The greatness of Salem's Lot is duly noted--although the d.q.'d vote was actually for It, which isn't nearly as good but does include a grown-up John Boy having asthma attacks, which is pretty fun to watch.

By the way: if anyone can hip me to a good resource for screenshots it would make the presentation of the final list a lot more aesthetically pleasing. Know what I'm saying?

Ed- working on my list though I must say I'm finding it difficult to compile 31 horror films which tells me that I've been ignoring this genre considerably. I got about 17 names down, will forward you the list after final drafting to you very soon.

Hi! for screen shots try live journal community Nostalgia Party.

I've emailed you my list just tonight. I have to say, I'm pretty excited about this project!

Gautam and Mark: Thanks for your participation! By the way, if you don't have 31 flicks to nominate, just send in a short list.

Mariana: Thanks for directing to me this resource!

Hey Ed, are all TV movies disqualified, or just miniseries? I promise, I have no interest in nominating 'Salem's Lot.

Ed Hardy, Jr. said...

Yeah, no t.v. sorry. Only theatrical feature films. That's the only rule I've got, and I'm stickin' to it.
