By Jim Foote & Josh Krubner
With Halloween just a little more than a week away, the two big horror fans, Jim and Josh, are duking it out in a fantasy draft, tailored towards horror movies. For those who don't understand how a typical fantasy sports draft works, let me explain. You have a standard roster, or collection of spots to form a team. You have positions, be it first base, second base, etc. for baseball or say quarterback, wide receiver, etc. for football. You select real life players to fill your fictional team's rosters. Then, based on how they perform in real life, you compete against other fictional teams.
So obviously, some alterations needed to be made in order to fit the horror movie landscape into a draft form held usually for sports and the like. I'll get more into that after the 'read more' jump.
First, I'd like to point out the main objective for both participants. To make the best all around collection of horror. What that means is a little subjective. What determines a better collection of horror? Maybe it's the true definition of horror. Maybe it's the execution. Maybe it's a broader spectrum. Maybe. That's what makes for different strategies in a draft. Click read more to dive down the rabbit hole in what we've dubbed THE FRIGHTS OF PASSAGE. ::cue spooky ghost noises::
