Sorry - I'm going off at a tangent here... but has there ever been a horror film whereby one of the bit-part characters manages to escape "the haunted house" or "cabin in the woods" before the end of the movie and survives (even though you never seen him/her in the film after that?)
I can't think of a single film where that's happened. It's been really bugging me! Anyone?

That bowl of china seems familiar:
Glengarry Glen Ross ?

it's funny how a single frame can evoke the feeling of several radically-different movies. My mind was considering:
Blade Runner (used)
Men in Black (not yet used?)

As it's languishing so long, I did some searching. While I have no idea whether it's correct or not, it just kinda seems like something Urthstripe would go with.
"To Wong Foo:
Thanks for everything.
Just kinda seems like something Urth would use.

You're right, of course, and this was another one I was surprised we hadn't used yet.
Here's a few more atmospheric shots and then it's over to you, JumboTron.

The Haunting (1963)
T'wos remade in 1999 and starred Liam Neeson and Catherine Zeta-Jones, but they never captured the eerie suspense of the original.

Thanks to both of you! I just did some legwork.
Here's another still to keep things rolling:

Went to do the updates to make the google doc match catherwood's and see that GuyIncognito has already taken care of all of it.

Here is an explanation for the discrepancies between the googledoc and my version of the spreadsheet (I think I've mentioned these in the past:
Sorted chronologically, we're in agreement thru #783
At #784 my spreadsheet counted "Cube" when it was reused (for the 2nd occurance) on page 360 of this thread (October 15, 2008) -- the shared doc is missing this occurance.
We remain off by one thru your #921 (my 922), then I have #923 as 'Barton Fink' (guessed on February 22, 2010 on page 431) -- the shared doc is missing this occurance.
(technically the use of this movie again later in December 2011 on page 498 was a duplication but was overlooked.)
We're then off by two thru your #948 (my 950), where an incorrect guess of 'Critters' on October 13, 2010 (page 449) was added to the googledoc and bumped your count,
after which we're back to being off by one, and there we remain.
We have a numbering disagreement during one month (January 18 - February 8, 2010 from pages [426-428]) in the chronology between 'Red Dragon' (your #910, my 911] and 'Airplane' [your #917, my 918] where six movies were entered into the googledoc in reverse sequence.
I have not yet updated my Leaderboard stats.

I figured it out.
The "Guesser" and "Assist" named ranges were set to not capture the last row.
I probably keyed the ending range row number from the "Flick #" column instead of the spreadsheet row number while it was sorted by the former.

I had another look as well, but the mystery of the missing guesser remains. All I can say is that the values in the Leaderboard seem to be correct, according to my crosscheck. But I'm also pretty sure that 1125 is the correct number of movies we tried to guess.... Maybe it's a problem with the formula or some bug in the spreadsheet?
cath, since you seem to have one additional movie, did you maybe include a Direct-to-DVD-entry in your list, like Wonder Woman (here) or something like that?
It's pretty puzzling, but this is unFiction, so sooner or later I guess we'll figure it out.
Here's the next movie still for now:
Posted: Mon Aug 20, 2012 12:06 pm
and my spreadsheet lists this last one as #1126
I'll upload it to my usual sekrit hiding place, then set about tomorrow comparing mine to the googledoc.
My stats/leaderboard were not recalculating on the fly the way I wanted (in a graph or chart), so I ended up using pivot tables which requires a fixed snapshot (as far as I know, in my version at least) I could recalculate those as well, tomorrow.
