Chiller (the cable television channel that ate “Fearnet”) creates horror lists. All the lists have 13 items, and all give us the top 13 of something. They’re published on Fridays, and are therefore called “The Friday 13.” Examples are “13 Iconic Horror Masks,” “13 Horror Movies That Rock,” “13 of the Weirdest Horror Movie Outfits You’ll Ever See,” and my personal favorite “13 Awesomely Terrible Dance Sequences from Horror Movies.”
Going on, I also received a book as Christmas gift from my awesome cousin Laurie. It’s called “The Book of Lists – Horror” and was published in 2008. Unlike the Chiller 13, it covers horror books, music, art – that is, more than just movies, However, that being said, by far the most ink is devoted to movies. Most lists are limited to the traditional “Top Ten.” Sample lists include “Stephen Volk’s Ten Movie Fates Worse Than Death,” “Eli Roth’s Top Ten Nastiest Horror Movie Genital Mutilations,” “James Gunn’s Nineteen [ok, not ten] Favorite Reasons God Made Humans So Squishy,” and my personal favorite, “Neil Marshall’s Ten Best Movie Bovine [yes, bovine, as in cow] Fatalities.”
Do you know what both of these masterful reserves of horror lists have in common? Neither contains a list of the best parties in a horror movies. As Your Party Hostess here at Horror House Party dot Com, I believe it is incumbent upon me to remedy this situation.
WE ARE GOING TO LIST THE TOP THIRTEEN HORROR MOVIE PARTIES.
This is going to be a collaborative effort (at least for numbers 2 through 13, as I have already chosen the #1 Party – and those of you on my Facebook feed know what it is). To make it more interesting and more fun (and more complicated), each party will be the best in its own category.
So, Step Number One is coming up with the thirteen categories.
I am opening a special “Party List Contest” topic in the “Contest” forum just to take suggestions for our list. Please help start the ball rolling by suggesting categories you think should be on the list. I would appreciate these four things on each category:
No. 1 – Category type & description;
No. 2 – At least one movie that fits in the category;
No. 3 – Catchy category name (optional); and
No. 4 – An argument why this category must be included in the list (also optional).
EVERYONE WHO SUGGESTS A CATEGORY OR A MOVIE IN A CATEGORY WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE REGISTERED FOR A PRIZE!
To win this prize, you must:
(1) Register on the website either through Facebook or by supplying your email address. We need you to do this so we can contact you if you win. (If you’re already registered, you don’t have to register again.)
(2) Participate in the creation of the list by posting anything (even just an “I like this one”) in the “Contest — Party List” Forum.” Your comment must be dated during the contest period, which is February 21, 2015, through April 30, 2015. (Note: multiple comments do not get you multiple entries.) CLICK HERE TO ENTER
On or about May 1, 2015, we will place the names of eligible party guests into a container and draw one. The winner will be contacted via email or Facebook. Once the winner accepts the prize, the name of the winner will be posted on the contest page. The prize will be mailed to the winner as soon as we confirm a mailing address. We would appreciate the winning guest sending us a photo taken with the prize so we can prove we actually gave the dang thing away.
