First obligatory Halloween link - 24 Hour Horror People

Eli Roth programs a 24 hour horror film festival

(and I'm impressed by some of his choices but, as you can imagine, it's a little too gore heavy for my tastes.)

In fact - let's make this a challenge - Post your ultimate 24 horror film festival running from 12pm to 12am.

I'll work on mine over the weekend (when I have some real time available.)

The 24 Hour Horror People Challenge

Your task is to program a 24 hour festival of horror films, tv episodes etc that will run from 12pm to 12pm the following day. Justify your choices for each particular slot. Use Eli Roth's list ( http://www.avclub.com/content/feature/24_hours_of_horror_with_eli/1 )  as a guide to format.

Some ground rules

- it runs strictly from 12pm to 12pm (no going over because you want to fit in that season of Buffy)
- everything you choose has to be freely available on DVD or as a digital download (and watchable through a television set - so no Flash animation please)
- you can include short films, tv shows, even documentaries
- an English language option (either dubbed or subbed) has to be available.

Post this on your own blog to get others interested (use the 24hourhorrorpeople tag so I can locate the entries) and I'll post links to all the entries on Halloween (Australian time)

So get cracking!

Eli Roth programs a 24 hour horror film festival

Has anyone told him that there were horror movies made earlier than the late 70s?

He's probably not aware of cinema earlier than the late 70s.

(Though in the few interviews I've read with him, he's trying to capture the vibe of 70s horror films in his own films. Better than being, you know, original I guess.)

Besides, Roth's a gorehound - he doesn't seem especially interested in mood, setting or character.

Sorry, just remembered he did include Fellini's "Toby Dammit", but he had only been exposed to it recently. So he's probably working through a 100 page closely typed list from his dear friend Quentin.

And are you going to participate in the challenge?

I'd be especially interested in your choices

And are you going to participate in the challenge?

I reckon I might! I do love a challenge.
