Hooptober Cinco: Your Terror is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key

Greetings from the birthplace of Zelda Rubinstein, Rusty Cundieff, Mario Joyner and Scott Glen. This is Hooptober Cinco.
This year sees the 40th Anniversary of Dawn of the Dead and the 50th of Night. It's also the 30th of Brain Damage, 20th of Ringu, 60th of The Blob and the 70th of Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein. There's a reason I point that out.....

Last years version was our biggest yet, and gave us hundreds of great lists and several thousand reviews, thoughts and impressions to read. The most enjoyable part for me, as always, was to see what everyone chose to watch, and the reactions to some of the stranger shit out there that people found.
