MeFi Horror Club Posting Norms Question

A few times in the last couple of weeks I've put a movie up on FanFare that might also make a good selection for the MeFi Horror club, but I didn't make it a club selection because the process for making a club selection was pretty involved. For future reference if I or anyone else just feels like going, "Hey, here's a movie that would be cool for FanFare but it's also a horror movie, I'm just going to announce it as a MeFi Horror Club selection," do people think this is okay? Or is it preferable to keep MeFi Horror Club selections only to things that follow the announcement and posting protocol? Anyone?

MeFi horror club: House of the Devil

House of the Devil is one of those movies that's better not to know anything about the plot beforehand. Released in 2009, it is made to look like a horror movie from the late 70s/early 80s, and pulls off this aesthetic remarkably well. At the same time it is just a great horror movie, extremely effective at slowly building suspense to a terrifying climax. House of the Devil is available for streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime.

MeFi Horror Club: Triangle

Long one of MeFi's favorite horror movies, Christopher Smith's 2009 film Triangle gets the MeFi Horror Club treatment. The extremely vague iMDb blurb for it says: "The story revolves around the passengers of a yachting trip in the Atlantic Ocean who, when struck by mysterious weather conditions, jump to another ship only to experience greater havoc on the open seas." That doesn't tell you much, but if you haven't actually seen it before, you'll have a better time going in as blind as you can. The film stars Melissa George and Liam Hemsworth. And is freaking amazing. [more inside]

MeFi Horror Club: October Bonus Picks!

In honor of Halloween, MeFi Horror Club is going to double up, with extra picks every Friday in October.

This will allow us to maybe lure in some people with big titles, cover some movies we'd normally skip for being too overexposed, and present the opportunity for people to comment on films they may know well enough they needn't rewatch them to join in.
