Out of the Blue

The PoolTracker site that we use for our annual NFL playoff pool offers the ability to create an NFL draft pool, so I decided some of us might find this a fun challenge. Here's a link to the Blue's News 2020 NFL Draft Pool (password is "draft"). Simply pick who you think will be the top 10 players drafted in order in the first round of Thursday's NFL draft. You'll get 10 points for each pick you hit on the head and partial points for each pick that finishes in the Top 10 (10 points minus the difference between your pick and their actual draft order). The tie-breaker is to predict the number of trades in the first round. It costs nothing to join, and there is no prize, so all that's at stake is bragging rights. But as has been pointed out before, it's hard to place a value on those... they are basically priceless.

Interesting that your list contains mostly classics. I've felt that there's kind of a renaissance in horror over the past decade. We've gotten a bunch of really interesting and well made movies.

As for The Shining, maybe I've just seen it too many times. Speaking of Kubrick, I came upon The Making of Full Metal Jacket on YT a couple of days ago and couldn't stop watching.

Haha well I'm old so there is that

I don't disagree with you but I've just felt many of them fail to reach Top 10 status for me. Hereditary, The Descent and The Conjuring all stood out and broke into my list though. The Conjuring in particular was good because it managed to scare totally with atmosphere, embraced cliches and went beyond them. It managed all of that with a PG-13 too. James Wan is pretty talented.

It Follows is another one I really enjoyed but the ending of the movie really brought down the whole experience for me enough that I dropped it.
