Pricey Horror Fan and HMP Listener,

Our favorite time of yr has arrived! It’s time to compile the Top 10 Greatest Horror Movies of 2018! We’ve been doing this sacred episode for years now: 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

For many who are new to our podcast, every of our hosts compiles a Top 10 Horror Movies of the Yr (along with some other lists), and we ask our listeners to be a part of the enjoyable by submitting their lists, as nicely. We collect all the listener submissions and compile their knowledge to create one collective Top 10 Horror listing from our listenership! It’s a blast!

Yearly we receive increasingly submissions. Final yr compiling the lists was almost the demise of me (Jay of the Lifeless), so I’ve devised a very slick and easy system (simple for me) for shortly and simply compiling your lists. But it’s going to only work if you will submit your record in a specific format.

I say this lovingly: You will need to comply with the directions, or your listing WILL NOT be added to the collective, and you will NOT be eligible to win the $50 Amazon present card. (Sorry.) Please comply with the directions under with exactness (as a result of my new tabulating system gained’t work until everyone does it precisely the identical means).

SNEAK PREVIEW:
Earlier than you begin reading the instructions under (after which surrender and stop studying), your last record submission should look one thing like this block of text under. (The next instructions clarify every thing, so please read all of them.)

zero. Please send your lists in the body of the e-mail. I don’t like to open attachments.

1. Yr of Launch – Up to now, we now have fought advert nauseam about how to decide a film’s official yr of release. We now have realized that our group won’t ever attain a consensus, so comply with your heart and your conscience. We’ll honor ALL submissions that adhere to the formatting guidelines under. (FYI: Most of the hosts of this podcast use IMDb’s first U.S. WIDESPREAD release because the film’s official yr of release. Right here’s an instance:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6269368/releaseinfo – On this example, Nov. 16, 2018 can be the official release date for “The Clovehitch Killer.”

P.S. It is best to undoubtedly embrace this Thriller among your issues…)

Briefly, we won’t waste any time bickering about Yr of Launch.

Equally, we’re not going to bicker about genre classification, either. Should you submit a film in your “Horror movies” listing, then that’s high-quality. If it’s Horror to you, then it’s Horror to you…

2. E mail your record to [email protected]

3. Your e-mail subject line must read, “Top 10 Horror Movies of 2018.”

four. The DEADLINE for submitting your listing is Wednesday, December 26, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. (Later submissions won’t be counted.)

5. Listed here are the listing categories and a temporary description of what they imply:

Top 10 Horror Movies of 2018 – Your “top” movies can imply no matter you need it to imply: Your private favourite? Scariest? Most upsetting? Greatest? Most essential? Most memorable? Doesn’t matter. Simply decide the 10 foremost Horror movies that stand-out to you for 2018.

Five Honorable Mentions of 2018 – These are principally your 11 by means of 15. Those that just barely missed your Top 10 record.

Single Greatest “Guilty Pleasure” Horror Film of 2018 – This ought to be a film that you simply’re a little sheepish to admit that you simply dug it. A pleasing surprise. You realize it’s not essentially “a good movie,” but you still enjoyed it. These films is perhaps frowned upon or dismissed by critics, however you discovered it entertaining and favored it, anyway.

Three Largest Disappointments / Heartbreaks of 2018 – These are the highest three films that you simply had the very best hopes or expectations for and it dashed these hopes and allow you to down. These aren’t essentially dangerous films. They only “weren’t as good as they should have been.”

Your Private Least Favorite Horror Film of 2018 – That is changing “The Worst Damn Movie of the Year.” Our opinions are subjective, anyway, so there’s no need to be vicious about someone’s life work. Individuals dedicate years of their lives and take critical financial risks, even when the top product is a horrible film. Nevertheless, I see nothing fallacious with merely stating that a film wasn’t your cup of tea. Wasn’t for you. You didn’t enjoy the experience.

Five Non-Horror Films of 2018 to Notice for Horror Followers (Horror Adjoining) – Within the line of Horror Film Podcast’s PSAs, there are sometimes films that we’d not classify as Horror, however they’re Horror adjacent or in any other case in all probability of curiosity to people who take pleasure in Horror films.

How It Works:

For our Top 10 Horror lists, obviously our No. 1 decide is our greatest / favorite film of the yr, and accordingly, No. 10 is our 10th favourite. We give the rankings value by weighting them with a point system, like so:

12 points = 1.) Greatest Horror Film of the Yr
10 factors = 2.) Second greatest, and so on.
9 points = 3.)
8 factors = 4.)
7 factors = 5.)
6 points = 6.)
5 points = 7.)
4 factors = 8.)
three points = 9.)
2 points = 10.)

— — — — Honorable Mentions — — — —

1 point = 11.
1 point = 12.
1 point = 13.
1 point = 14.
1 level = 15.

Yes, the No. 1 decide gets an extra level for being No. 1.

I’m going to use an alphabetizer to assist me manage and tabulate the listener “votes,” so here is the format you need to use in your record.

(IMPORTANT NOTE: You will ship ALL submissions in one block (as you see under). One film per line. No spaces between strains. I’ve just broken the sections up right here to explain it more clearly. See the underside of this blog publish for an example of the ultimate formatting.)
