Sometime soon we must plan a time late at night when we can all watch one terrible horror film at once. Here's the requirements.

-It must be funny bad but not intentional like Thankskilling
-It must be available on Netflix instant watch
-If you do not have Netflix, you must find a DVD/VHS or even pirate it (Also try Hulu)
-We must press play at an exact hour
-It must be done at a time and date when most users are available
-Update comments on the film every time you see something worth noting
-Do NOT pause the movie under ANY circumstances
-The movie must be longer than an hour and a half but not over two and a half hours
-Watch the clock, when you comment on a moment please mark what time it is when this happens
-When we pick a time it will be posted on this thread with all time zones noted
-Make sure you're using your most accurate clock. Cell phones are the best for this.
-Please tell anyone with you that you're doing this you can't stop until it's over
-If you're watching the movie and someone with you makes a comment, feel free to post it.
-If anything happens that will make your movie lose sync, please tell us that you'll be behind us and continue posting.

I hope we can pull this off!

This is true, however I'm not sure if I can access my LIVE account right now but if you're tempted to use a party to sync up you can. Now I want everyone to scour Netflix for the worst movies and post a list of the worst you can find. We'll narrow it down and study each movie until we can find a suitable bad horror film.

True! Ya think all the jokes Best Brains did were winners? They only used the good ones, ya know.
Like listening to an church choir, with all those voices someone's gonna hit the right note.

Well, I DO have Netflix instant streaming and an Xbox live account (Severin360), so feel free to add me. I suppose I'll join, since all I really do on Halloween is boobytrap I-I MEAN answer the door.

Almost any b movie made before the 1990's clocks in at under 90 minutes.

Fine. Forget the minimum.

I'd worked out a system a year or so ago, in which a group could watch the same movie and talk to each other. I could stream the movie from here to a streaming server that billed according to minutes and number of viewers (participants would kick in a buck or two by Paypal per movie to cover that). Everyone with a broadband connection could pick up the stream in their browser with a URL, and we'd set up a Skype conference with headsets. I'd probably limit the Skype to groups of up to four or five, just to make conversation possible.

I had figured out the details, but never got around to testing it. I posted the idea, but never rounded up a few volunteers. If it works, it would be as close as we'd get to watching a movie together without travelling. And it allows us to watch any movie that can be downloaded or obtained on DVD. For that matter, I could convert VHS tapes to digital files. I might have to adjust the resolution, framerate and bitrate of the movies to ensure they stream smoothly for everyone, but I think it would work.

Anyone interested in giving it a shot?

I don't really have any money in my PayPal, but if the selected movie is on Netflix I can start it up at the same time as everyone else.

I wouldn`t bother collecting money for the first try. Only if it became a regular thing. I don`t think two different streams are going to stay in sync. Probably need four or five people for a good test.

Then it shall be done! Gentlemen! Let's exchange Skype names. Now for the big part. Voting on a movie.

Cast your votes for what lame horror film we should observe on this unholy week of the walking dead.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
