Horrorthon 2014!


"Hee, hee! Greetings, boils and ghouls, welcome to Horrorthon 2014! Starting at midnight tonight our little contest begins. I expect a lot out of you, jerks! I don't want excuses - whaaa, I have kids, whaaa, I have to work, whaaa, I was too tired...whaaa, I have a busy life!  I want to see some serious output this year.  Gretchen was disappointed to see that some of you slacked last year, and you don't want to disappoint Gretchen.  I know where you all live...

Once again the rules:

1) Watch as many horror movies as you can stomach from midnight October 1st through 11:59 PM October 31st.

2) Post reviews: a limit of 2 reviews per day are allowed through the month of October. Beginning November 1st until Thanksgiving you can post as many per day as you can. Rate the reviews on a scale of * to *****.

3) We're pretty lenient as to what constitutes "horror" but as a general rule of thumb the movie in question should be intended to scare the audience (e.g. 'The Ring' = horror, 'Gravity' = not horror).

4) Have fun! Or don't! I couldn't care less! If I'm forgetting anything please say so in the comments.

Bad luck!

Hey, does anyone have any idea why my old reviews always end up with dead picture links?

I saw it a few years ago, so I made an effort to not just use web links for images--I "save" the image to my desktop before uploading it. But damn, mine are all dead again.

Do we have to continue "hosting" the images or something? I seem to remember a big folder in My Pictures with a bunch of Horrorthon images, and I deleted them all.

Thoughts?

Dang, LS, I'm stumped. I have at least one review for which the images crapped out on me but your situation is particularly annoying.

Oh, and HORRORTHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNN!!!!!!!

I'm not usually OCD, but damn if I don't have an urge to go back through my years of reviews and fix all those broken image links.
