I Swear to You This is the Last Time I'll Talk About Voting.

Hey gang. We're down to the final, this-time-I-promise-no-more-voting round to voting. They're all going up late tonight when I get back into Greensboro, but here's what you have to narrow down from twelve to six:

Black Sheep
Blood Car
Chopping Mall
Drag Me to Hell
Dead Alive
Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter
Hillbillys in a Haunted House
Night of the Lepus
Shark Attack 3: Megalodon

I tried to make the match-ups fair, so all you have to decide is "which of these movies is going to be more fun with the other movies I [meaning you] chose?" Truthfully, any combination of them would be a hell of a fun night, and I may have my own personal preferences, but it's up to you. You'll have until Monday afternoon to decide, but please take all of your choices into consideration with each other. Animals gone amok? Zombies of different shapes and sizes? Demonic possession? Generally fucked up movies that scrape 80 minutes?

On Saturday, starting at 6pm, I will take the selections and put them in the order that makes the most sense for a great night. If some non-winners have high votes, I may institute a "matinee" showing of one or two of them. And of course, there's always a chance you'll see runners up elsewhere in the fest. Vote prudently.


I was surprised at just how well The Wrestler lent itself to being recut as a Grindhouse slasher-palooza. See for yourself:


Based on a very special request by Dr. Adam Bomb, I am willing to consider Basket Case as a candidate for Horror Fest. It's all a matter of where it fits in best.

You could probably make The Wrestler look like Passion of the Christ just as convincingly. A few questions:
-Will you show the new or old version of Slither?
-If you show Drag me to Hell, will it be the theatrical or unrated version?
-Are you willing/able to post a more detailed schedule of the event?
