You can't stop what's coming: Terrorthon update

Page and I wanna thank everybody who's joining us for our Terrorthon next month. Gotta say, it feels good to be co-arranging a blogathon in which so many people are taking part in - I love looking around and seeing our banners on people's blogs!

This is just to let everybody know where we stand right now, and where we stand is pretty damn good: we've gotten an amazing turnout for this: twenty definites as of this writing, can you believe it? 

If you're contributing, do me a favor and check this list for me and make sure this is accurate:

Caftan Woman (Caftan Woman), I Saw What You Did

As for Page and I, she has picked a film called It's Alive, while I'm currently going with the 70s remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, though that may change.

Now the Terrorthon is gonna cover five days, so if you know which day you wanna post on, then let me know in the comments. Those of you who are still TBA, if you've decided on a film, put that in the comments as well. As for the rest of you, there's still plenty of time to join the party - all you gotta do is think of a classic (or even not-so-classic - we've got 60s and 70s movies included too) - movie that REALLY SCARED YOU and write about it. Talk about things like where you saw it, maybe how old you were at the time, why it scared you, things like that. You've got until April 10 to pick a movie. Good luck!

    1. I haven't seen it since I was a kid. My parents took us to the Drive-In and I remember it really scaring me.

      Revisiting it all these years later should be interesting. It will either be scary or silly.

    2. Knowing you, probably the latter. :-)
