October 2008 Horror Marathon for the rest of us
« on: October 01, 2008, 05:16:20 PM »
This thread can be for the more casual "runners", like me, who simply run along with Pete and want to list what they have watched.

My personal target will be to reach around 26, incl. TV episodes.

I'm not going to try for 31 as I know I will not make one a day. I will be traveling for at least 4 days this month. Since I stole Achim's formatting I just keep his number too  :laugh:

OK - the "traveling for 4 days" thing didn't work out. I've beem on the road for 3 days now and won't be home with my DVDs till the 26th. >:(

Looks like I'm all but out of this...   I really wanted to watch the old school horror collection too. Hopefully I get some in. Where I am staying there are about 250 movies. All from 1985 and newer. From what I've seen not much to pick from.  :thumbdown:

Half-way mark of the October marathon, how are we all doing?

I'm at 10 movies watched in 14 days. At that rhythm, I don't think I'll make it to 31, but, I'm still quite happy with this result. I mean, these 10 movie in 14 days are already 10 movies more than what I watched in the last 2 months!!  :clap:

Hope you're all still enjoying your marathons, I know I'm enjoying mine! (and I've been making some good watching choices hehe)

I have the funny feeling I missed to mark one as Watched in DVD Profiler and accordingly it's missing form the list, I have 11 now and will very likely not get up to the expected 26. There is a couple of birthdays coming up and, even more time consuming, a bunch of cool new games are being released throughout October. Well, maybe each time I played two hours of "Dead Space" I should mark it down for one watched movie :laugh:

I'm up to nine movies so far.  Of course a few I've watched aren't exactly traditional horror...but I like to watch them around Halloween so I counted them. :)
