I finally finished putting in genders for all directors - I just 'assumed their gender' by looking at their names, so it's possible some are incorrect. Currently, there are 6629 films with directors and who have been nominated at least once. Out of all those, 18 are co-directed by men and women, and 162 are directed by women. 2.44% of all nominated 'horror' films. Crazy low.

I've been procrastinating with uni work a little bit lately working on little things in preparation for the new edition of this list. I have 3 assessments due at the end of next week, so it'll likely be around next Sunday when I release it to give me time to make sure everything's ready etc. But it's mostly all done (thanks to Chris' help) so on track for next Sunday.

Since I've hit the minimum number of lists I wanted for the 21st century list, I was planning on releasing it in a few months but I thought it might be cooler to unveil at the turn of a new year, but idk if it's too long to wait. The new director list will be released a few months before or after that depending on when I decide to do it. I'm not that happy with the director one because there aren't many lists and most are 'up and coming directors to watch' rather than 'best' so yea. But it's been a while and I've lost the original stuff I used for the current one so it needs an update.

I also am not 100% happy with some of the weightings and categorization but I don't have the time or motivation to reassess those right now, so I'll work on that for next year's list. There are some interesting changes to the new list, I think it definitely makes for a more interesting list but sometimes I wonder how accurately it's reflecting 'the best'.

So, I've been depressed and stressed and unable to do any of my homework so I have done almost nothing this last week. I also have a rent inspection in 2 days. I'm not going to have time to focus on this until after Sunday so hopefully it'll be early next week.

TSPDT (until this year) had a tradition of being delayed every year, so don't stress, your personal life comes first.

The list is now updated for 2018: http://theyshootzombies.com/ghf1000/

Still need to tweak some of the weightings and stuff because I'm still not entirely happy with it, but this is what it is for now. I still have some images to gather for the Hidden Horrors list so I'm holding off updating that for now.

I don't know but every year I have trouble updating the site, particularly the Sources page, which will crash a million times and force the whole site down for a few minutes before it finally lets me update. Really annoying.

Awesome! Looks like the bottom half changed quite a bit. I notice quite a few more older films on the list.

Lost 14 checks. Still have a bronze on the list, so yay.

Very nice to see The Sender and Brain Dead (the 1990 film) newly Official with the latest update. Of course, not everything is for the better though. The new list features Exorcist II: The Heretic...

Looks like Laydback will be the new #1 on the list with 960 checks, leapfrogging the current top 7 who had seen all of the previous version.

Finally Vertigo is getting some recognition... :whistling:

I lost 4 but went up almost a hundred spots in the rankings. Then I found two films I saw a long time ago and just now checked, so only a net loss of 2.

You can see how many you had if you check the list rankings which haven't been updated. Otherwise yeah, you'd have to look at the previous version of the list which I think is a paid feature.

Edit: You had 683

I can't speak to paid features or others, but I keep track of my stats offline in a spreadsheet, which is how I knew my changes...

If it didn't trigger me now I would probably be sad too :P

Lost my platinum and at 949/1000. Usually I watch films that enter throughout the year so I'm always on top of it but I just don't have the time anymore. Hopefully I can regain the platinum after I graduate.

excellent work mighty, Chris, everybody. love the list. I swear I'm going to work on it one of these days. I don't have much lined up right now, maybe I should knock off the top 50 for once, now that I know it'll be at least a year before it changes again (the mad fluctuation of the list is one of the things I like about it, non-stasis yaah)

Falling off the list on wrote:754. Scream 4 (2011) Losing official status
Looks like I have new #1 next time we do a Best Films in Zero Official Lists poll. :(

Seriously - anybody who thinks that Blood Freak or Night of the Lepus is a better film than Scream 4... :wacko:

While that's the extreme end of things, I think it is less of a case of the new update being geared away from modern horror and towards older films, but rather a case of the new update being geared towards films that could only ever be appreciated on a so-bad-it's-good level. Which is not to undermine all your efforts, Chris and Lauren. I appreciate all the hard work and it still amazes me that you manage to keep such an enormous project updated on an annual basis.

At first glance, this new list is just not as interesting to me (overall) than the 2017 list. While the 2017 list is a (generally) solid collection of high quality horror films, the 2018 version is a more a mix of great films and guilty pleasures... and therefore a less appealing list for me to try to complete. But I have said before that the Zombie Canon is pretty much the only list that I am interested in one day achieving Platinum on - and I still stand by that statement.

Thanks for the update.

Yeah there was an influx of 90s movies and weird B-movies but I prefer it to the sequels, remakes and ‘slick but crap’ new stuff that plagued the old list. I find this one a much more interesting mix, but that’s still a problem for me. I think some of the weightings aren’t quite right yet but eh it’s getting there.

Whee. Went from 364 to 334 (-30)... I had watched a lot of the 2000s/2010s films. Only seen 15 of the new entries, 2 new checks... losing 10 checks.

This is definitely not going to help in my quest to get under rank 500 on this list. Went from #837 (74 away) to #963 (82 away)

Well, yeah, I am happy about much of the ‘slick but crap’ newer stuff (The Taking of Deborah Logan anyone?) disappearing, but quite a few of the new entries are actually mediocre sequels. There's another two Friday the 13th films in the new list, Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, Jaws 2 and the oft berated Exorcist II. I mean, sure, we managed to get rid of almost all those Final Destination sequels with the latest update, but I actually prefer Final Destination 5 to all of those films, if mostly on account of the clever ending.

Anyway, I am certainly curiously to see how the list continues to evolve with new tweakings and weightings. I trust that you and Chris will get there eventually. Oh, and any idea when the 1001-2000 list on iCM will be updated? That's the main list that I will be working on during the Unofficial Official Challenge later this year. :)

Well you win some and you lose some. Crazy turnover though, someone really likes Mummies. Got five new checks and lost nine I used to have, don't really follow the overall amount but man do horror people not agree on a cannon.

My local library system has all the Universal box sets and I watched the first three Mummies not that long ago; apart from the first I'm not crazy about that series and in fact the only one of the series I'd probably buy would be Frankenstein.

I need to take more than a cursory glance at the new list but from what little I've seen it's going in the right direction IMO. Count me as one of the few (maybe only?) people here who actually likes Freddy's Dead, and I can understand why Exorcist 2 has an appeal to some (haven't seen it in like 20 years myself but it's one I'm very interested in re-watching). But having still seen less than half of the list I'm really going on gut feeling more than anything else with that statement, and I'm obviously more interested in the older stuff myself, at least more than the slasher stuff that dominated the 80s and 90s, or a lot of the popular series & sub-genres today (i.e. found footage). I will say though that the last few years' films have really helped to increase my interest in the genre - hoping to see Mother! show up on the list eventually, though I fear it will remain divisive-trending-negative for a long time.
Here's to the fools who dream.

Just heard about the update...funny, because I had just hit the 400/1000 plateau. Now I'm back to 391.

583 -> 556 is a loss of 27. Not as much as i thought from looking at the lists of movies entering and going. I see some good films on both of them and some strange/weak ones, so i haven't got an opinion on how the update went.

Lost about 40 checks, was so close to Bronze and dropped 5 ranks.

Hmmm, lost about 70 or so checks, the new list doesn't seem to have unearthed any new/recent horror films either. Pretty disappointing update if you ask me.

Well, it looks like I'm the only one to approve of this update - as I only lost 18 checks, but gained 64! I was trying to figure out how the heck my ICM ranking went up 50 places, but didn't realize this list was updated.

The update looks fairly heavy on somewhat more obscure Universal classic horror + Hammer - which I think have both often been unfairly neglected. The previous list iteration was far too dependent on new films - of which most of those have little to no staying power after a couple of years. I don't really miss anything that's left the list, but I'm happy that this might finally get people to watch many great films that they'd otherwise miss out on (rather than just whatever generic horror film came out ten years ago for Halloween).



I'll include a list of some of my favorites from the update:

The Monster (1925)
Die, Monster, Die!
It! The Terror from Beyond Space
The Man They Could Not Hang
Billy the Kid Versus Dracula (ok, if only for the most hilarious ending / way to kill a vampire)
Island of Terror
The Legend of Boggy Creek
Elvira: Mistress of the Dark
Incubus (1966)
El baron del terror

My new ranking is #7. Hopefully I can make that back up quickly.

I feel like the list is in a better place than it was previously. Just looking at a histogram of the years, the new list is less biased towards the most recent films, and the top 600 or so make a list that seems more solid than previously.

Some things that need to be done:
1. I think there are still a few lists that are classed as ranked when they should be unranked. I'm hoping to alter the program to flag these up automatically.
2. The weightings are unbalanced. Maybe less disparity between weighting the different classes of lists would help.
3. A lot of the changes may be because of all the deleted lists. Am I right in thinking that the iCM forum user lists have been removed? Because long ranked lists help the ordering immensely.

Yea all forum lists were removed. And yea the weightings need to be revised again.
