Time for a new Bracketology! We are voting now! Check the third post! Here are some rules:
  • Spreadsheet will be set up for 64 Directors of Horror films.
  • Spreadsheet will also have columns for "top 6 horror films" by each director. (second page)
  • All lists will be randomized before each round begins, from the director's movies that have not been selected yet this tournament
  • Committee to Overrule Stupid Decisions retains the right to overrule any stupid decisions
  • Committee consists of me, STAC, Burkion, Basebf, MacheteZombie, Debbie Does Dagon and TrixRabbi
  • 'Stupid Decisions' is defined as trying to sneak in Not-Horror onto a list, leaving off a vastly better movie or not listing the full 6 when six options exist.
  • Each round voting criteria is on "BEST MOVIE" but that means whatever you want, just don't vote on 'historical importance' or 'started career of x'
  • Normal Bracket advancement
  • ONCE THE FRIGHTFUL FOUR IS REACHED, all "used" films refresh. Final rounds can use previously-used movies

As an example, I will steal the best horror director who will win.

quote:

Wes Craven
1. Scream
2. Nightmare on Elm Street
3. Scream 4
4. New Nightmare
5. Red Eye
6. The Hills Have Eyes

If I had put "6. Chiller" then I would expect one of the Committee to Overrule Stupid Decisions stepped in to be like, "nah, it's gonna be HHE"

BEGIN!

I don't think it's supposed to be a ranking, just the 6 or fewer best films in no particular order.

So the rules are a poster just names a director and picks 6 films and then that director is in and we have to judge based on the random one selected by a random poster with no voting or debate or consensus? That's... weird.

This one kind of feels like the World Cup to me over March Madness. I'll pay attention, watch some games, maybe get into it, maybe get some rooting going, but I'll never fully understand the game or get that engrossed beyond just wanting to be part of the bigger group picture.

I don't mean to be a spoil sport. My two favorite directors have already been picked with my favorite films not included, so I have nothing really to add at this moment. Vaya con dios. We'll see.

Yeah, we'll see. As I said I'll be on board anyway because I love our crew and am happy to be part of it in any way whether its being part of a small council, accidently waging a campaign to make one of my favorite franchises fall to one of my least, or spend a couple of days making a fun video. And I guess even if some of my favorite directors draw some movie that isn't my favorite it will give me an excuse to watch/revisit something less familiar to me.

I've made my peace with the fact that most people prefer Re-Animator. If someone said that they actually disliked From Beyond then we'd be having it out but literally nobody ever says that.

The big boys will probably still be relatively safe in the early round matchups. Like, there's no draw where Carpenter loses to James Wan or whatever, it's just not gonna happen no matter what the RNG comes up with.

I don't know. I'm trying to wrap my mind around this but if I'm on the committee to stop bad decisions I'd probably most want it to be the idea of deciding Best Director based on single random films. But I'll play along as best as I can.

I'll leave obvious ones to people more into it, but this is one I like and think I probably like more than most here. He wouldn't have been on my Top 10 ballot (if we got such things) and I wouldn't want him to win a best director tourney, but I don't know what this is anymore and every tourney needs 12 seeds.

Mike Flanagan
1) Absentia (2011)
2) Oculus (2013)
3) Hush (2016)
4) Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)
5) Gerald's Game (2017)
6) Doctor Sleep (2019)


And I guess a couple for the jungle primary? Or they're more than 3 films so I guess more late seeds? I really am not following. But I could see these getting skipped over and I like them, let them have a shot. Or don't? I don't follow. Feel free to skip. I dunno.

I only saw it once a very long time ago so it would definitely demand a rewatch to re-evaluate.

But god help me if I'm asked to judge Wes Craven, maybe my single favorite director of all time or one who has the most films I love of any director ever, solely by Last House on the Left a movie that actually made me stop watching horror movies for nearly a week during October. My heart will be destroyed.
