Welcome to the groundbreaking ceremony of the Horroretc Hall of Fame. In classic fashion, we had a great longform debate over history’s greatest contributors to the horror genre to hash out the inaugural class and tried to group the inductee candidates that warrant recognition. The ultimate purpose of the discussion was to determine the four faces that deserve to be chiseled into the Mount Rushmore of horror.
As things progressed we worked out several determining factors including career achievement, singular touchstone contributions, the impact of certain works, influence upon the genre, etc. To assist with the decision making we make several analogies to the design and template of how sports hall of fames work.
In the end we simply enjoyed celebrating the iconic names and faces of horror and honour the works that have brought us all so much enjoyment as fans. We hope you enjoy the discussion as well – perhaps you may agree with our comments, surely there was a lot of contention, but most of all we hope you share your opinions and comments on who ultimately deserves to be up on our hypothetical Mount Rushmore (you may be surprised at our results). The prize offer thrown out to reward the best art representation of our final four was real and we encourage submissions.
Things wrap up with thoughts on Django Unchained (spoiler – it was fantastic).
As always we welcome your comments:
