    Well, I searched for a thread about Patron Saints of Horror Movies and found any, so...

    Hmmm... I'll let this one slide, due to the fact that Bela rocks.

    Smartt, don't let me catch you fluffing your post count. If you're gonna post, let's put some substance in it... put your back into it man!

    What does "fluffing a post count" means?

    Just means posting a bunch of threads and posts simply to up your post count. Most times, when people do this, they do so by posting a lot of threads without much substance... more quantity over quality.

    We used to show the highest post count member on the main forum page, which led to a fluffing war, so we took that option down. Now, newbies fluff their post count so they can get to a point where they can change their title (yours currently being 'Stalker'). I believe that point is 500, but I'm not sure.

    Really it's no huge deal, and I was probably too harsh there. The main reason I don't like to see it is because it clutters up the forum with meaningless posts.

    But thinking it over, I personally haven't seen you fluffing, and was more reacting to moo's post.

    In other words, don't worry about it. :p

    Oh. I understand.

    Well, me, I don´t really care about big numbers to get me status or some kind of prize. The only numbers that really matters are the zeroes on my bank account, of course (and they´re NEVER enough! :cry: ).

    Oh God not him. He's made one horror film, and a bunch of comedies after that. Patron saint of horror?!?! We'd have to do a lot better than that.

    Bruce can be the Patron Saint of the Shiny Chin Chins.

    He has become a parody of himself. How about somebody more deserving like Christopher Lee or Vincent Price or the cast of Leave it to Beaver for that matter. I bet underneath that squeaky clean household image there was some crazy shit going on in that house.
     
  12. The great Christopher Lee gets my vote!

    Christopher Lee is still alive, so he doesn´t apply to sainthood.
     
  14. Well, I figured that since Bruce Campbell was being put up for nomination that Christopher Lee stood a chance too. Sorry. :)

    No need to be sorry. We´re just having fun here, dude.

    Hm, I think to do this we gotta go back a bit. Karloff would be great, of course - his face is just so well known. However, for a horror saint, I think we can dispense of the religious garb.

    If they have to be dead. I'd say Peter Cushing. I love him.

    That Jesus pic of Bela is pretty cool.

    Patron saint? Gotta be dead?

    Vincent Price. Hands down.

    Though I love all three of the Unholy Trinity of Terror... Price, Cushing and Lee. :D

    Well, until we force the Church to canonize someone who´s still living, those are the rules - for now... ;)
     
  20. Well, if they've got to be dead, my vote goes to Vincent Price as well. The man is untouchable.
