  • Just a heads up. My list might seem at first like it would be better suited for the horror draft, and for good reason. I was originally going to save these picks for October but I've decided to take a sabbatical from the site and I'm not sure when I'll be back. With that being said, I'd like to go out on one last hurrah and make picks that IMHO are truly interesting and worth discussing with others. In particular, my list will be in large part be a meditation on Evil, especially as it relates to Demonology. I've been thinking a lot about the nature of Evil lately, what with everything that's been happening in the world (Syria, mass shootings, etc.). Is humanity inherently evil, or is there some other force at work that brings out the worst in people? My list (at least the first half) will reflect these thoughts. There will also be elements of action, drama, SciFi, comedy and even parody in my list. Nevertheless, I'll understand if my list gets 0 or negative points because of the overarching horror elements. I'm not in it to win it. I merely want a platform to discuss all the crazy things going on in my head at the moment and thought the draft would give me an opportunity to do just that. Long story short, I hope you guys and gals enjoy my list and that it gets you thinking.

  • Thanks! I almost chickened out and went with something more draft friendly but nope I'm sticking with my list and theme.

    I recently watched a movie that fits your theme. I'm interested to see if it'll show up on your list.
  • Good news! My friend Cerraphim will be joining the draft. =)
