    I’d go with no because vampires generally have preferred pronouns, so “it” is not appropriate. *Maybe* like a Nosferatu vampire, but I’ve never seen it so IDK.

    I think it’s creature more like the blob, killer animal, maybe gremlins.

    I would say any human-turned-monster is not a creature, with a possible exception for werewolves.

    The Universal Monsters are not necessarily creatures. Werewolves I'd probably let you have because wolves, but vampires are definitely too human.

    Question. There's a horror anthology series on Netflix called two sentence horror stories. How would points be calculated? Point per episode? X points for series?

    TV shows and mini-series don't count for points. I've made an exception for It only, as the movie of the month. TV movies do count if they are of feature length. Feature films made up of shorter stories (like V/H/S or Trick 'r Treat) also count but only under the normal scoring.

    I just, don't get It. Pennywise is not scary. In the original he just looks like a run of the mill circus clown and even in the remake trying to make him look more "evil clown" he's still just goofy (don't even get me started on his dance in the remake). Maybe it's more effective as a book? I just don't understand why so many people are terrified of clowns because of this movie.

    I think it’s that they were already scared of clowns, like me.

    I think the book is much more effective. To me the scarier parts of the movie are things that happen when the stupid clown is off screen, and just that building feeling of dread.

    The book is definitely scarier, but I don't know, some people have a thing about clowns I guess. Just bask in the Tim Curry.

    @allmaple I had never seen the original and didn't know anything about it when I saw the remake and I expected him to be scarier. As soon as he started talking I accidentally laughed out loud in the theater. I can see it being pretty scary for older kids/young adults

    I feel like a couple times a month I have a day at work like Cujo. So many aggressive dogs... o_O

    At some point, I am going to try to knock out the Jeepers Creepers trilogy. Have seen the first movie and I remember I was quite scared (I was 13) so I'm hesitant

    Jeepers Creepers is, hands down, one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. It’s one of only six titles I’ve given a 1/10 rating on IMDb (of over 3,000 votes).

    I watched all four Scream movies in as many days and now I’ll never get that Nick Cave song out of my head.

    The directed of Jeepers Creepers is also a convicted sex offender for child pornography and oral sex with a minor.

    I'm not a horror film fan so I am more likely to join if it is a campy classic vs something truly scary.

    I have something in mind that is campy, slightly creepy, but mostly just fun and possibly nostalgic for a few of you. Download Kast and watch party information will be coming soon.

    I feel like the quality of Conjuring Universe movies is indirectly proportional to the amount of Patrick Wilson. I did actually like Annabelle Creation, but Annabelle Comes Home was bland and generic.
