Should give him another 24h: he might have forgotten or planned to take care of it over night PST. He was looking forward to it as far as I can judge from the above post.

Since the challenge begins imminently, we should probably hand off hosting duties at this point.

But you can post when the thread starts, you don't have to post right away when you see it. It's not even october here.

Some these threads have started the 1st in the past.

Okay - just sent cinephage a private message since (as far as I can tell) nobody else here has. :shrug:

As per tradition, I started at dusk on the 30th myself and am currently two films into the Challenge. But I can wait for a little bit before posting an update. Besides, I'm still trying to work out whether or not I liked Hereditary. I'm not impressed that I needed to watch a 9 minute YouTube video to fully get what was going on, but then again the film interested me enough to seek out a full explanation, and bits and pieces are certainly clever. Though it's also a bit of a been-there-done-that sort of film (dreams within dreams is such a cliche). But I did have trouble sleeping afterwards, which is usually a sign of an effective horror film, and I've woken up early and cannot get back to sleep...

Regarding "handing off hosting duties", do we even have anybody who is willing to step in and take over the reigns?

At a pinch, I guess I could host, but I would not be able to put much effort into it. I'm back at work in a week so I'll have trouble keeping the thread updated (with a challenge as busy as Horror tends to be) and I would not be able to post daily updates or stats. Nor would I have the spare time to argue or police whether films are horror or not. But I would rather take on the onerous task of hosting the thread than have the Challenge not occur at all.

Let's see some volunteers. Once we have someone slotted in to potentially take over, then we can work out how long to give cinephage before the other person starts the thread.

I'm happy to help - I'm not expecting the Iberian challenge to be super busy as it's competing with Horror, but I'm happy to jump in and start the thread and/or post standings.

I'll start the challenge, have no problem hosting. will try for daily posted updates and silent updating of the OP 2-3 times a day.

you probably won't get super advanced stats unless someone wants to help with that. I'm excel-challenged.

Horror is different in that it starts on the 30th. It's also the busiest challenge of the year.

I think we had a consensus to give you a little more time until freddy funky decided not while we were sleeping.

It's fine, really. I was sorry for the early viewers who had already so many horrific titles to write down on the site's ghastly log... Now they are in Funky's hands, and we all know how firm his grip is... Beware ! Beware !!! :lol:

People write their watchlists in some "ghastly log" I never heard of? I keep mine in WP files, which collectively are a great resource.

Our host is MIA for the horror challenge: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=3968&view=unread#unread

I sent a PM. Made a note in the horror challenge. I have seen 20 horror films and it's still showing me as 0. Is an active host willing to take over?

I can work on something while Funky's on business... He'll catch up afterwards. I'll work on that in a few hours.

However, I won't be able to change the OP.
