    I can make voting for the best list a rule, but how am I or anyone else going to enforce the rule? By making a tally? Anyone can make shit up as to why they voted for someone. I would never take someones vote away unless they didn't use the poll or they voted for themselves. My advice to everyone is just play the game and who cares if someone thinks you're breaking rules. I really believe no one is voting based on friendships, and are voting based on the overall list

    By the later rounds or the final round it really can just come down to one movie. If both lists make it that far, one movie in all likelihood will be the deciding factor.

Admitting that you vote for films based on how unpopular they are shows you missed the whole point of the game.

    The elitist attitude that all movies labeled "underground" are better than more popular films is annoying at best and dishonest at its worst.

    I'm not saying everyone has to like the same thing or that everyone has to agree with me (though they should ) but everyone should be honest and not biased based on whether something got a studio release or not.

    Nobody said that "underground" films are better than those that are not, the fact that one show a preference for a given type of films "not so well known" does not mean one is being dishonest, nor does it mean that one is saying that those movies are better than than popular movies.

    Basically we like to dig a little more, and if we can along the way to introduce people to extend the look and pay a little attention to movies that often do not have the transcendence of others, that's great. But ultimately we vote what we like and we are honest. This is not an elitist attitude.

    Since tastes are completely personal and different, if someone says " I love UG films" and vote according to that, why then that person is missing the point of the game? I wonder.

    To put things in perspective: this is an internet game. For fun.

    Therefore, just let people draft what they like and vote for who they like. Everyone has their own reasons for drafting a film or voting for a particular list, after all people love/hate different things. The world would be a very boring place if we all thought and acted in the same way.

    As for 'winning', I've personally never seen the point. Anyone can make a list of five critically acclaimed horror films that are assured to pull in the votes... I'd rather offer up some films that maybe some folks haven't heard of, will end up checking out, and hopefully love as much as I do. I'm not knocking anyone who plays to win these things though, everyone has their own mind and methodology and therefore shouldn't be ridiculed or scoffed at for that.

    Thanks everyone and great match, Cem.

    I just drafted what I consider five great pieces of horror filmmaking... that and I wouldn’t mind actually winning a draft for once, and I'm not going to do that with recs.

    Whether participants are going for the win with more obvious picks or just getting involved to bring some lesser-known titles to light for others either way it's all good. These drafts are supposed to be for FUN and people should be able to be play the game how they want whatever path they choose to go down with their lists and should not be persecuted for it.

    Scoring lists should be done fairly judging the films on their quality alone whatever they are, be it mainstream, cult, obscure, indie, underground etc.

    Congrats on the victory Dave. I lost to what I think is a perfect list. It was surprisingly a very close match.

    Thanks to everyone who voted for my list.

    Maybe you're right, just when I see people admitting that they're voting to promote unknown horror it just sort of taints the game for me.

    For the record I never said all underground were bad there's some good movies in the lot, and I never said that any single person was annoying or dishonest...I said the ATTITUDE that underground films are better than more popular films is annoying and dishonest. The only way someone should be offended by that statement is if they hold that belief.

    Bottom line: I no longer give a shit who anyone votes for and why...I'll stick to voting for the list I think is the best set of films.

    Instead of saying vote for the best list, change it to vote for your favorite list.,
