    On DVD or Blu-Ray..

    I primarily use Film Aficionado to catalog my DVDs but I also use a program on my PC (non web) where It allows me to enter the name of the film + poster art and not just the name of the DVD or Blu_ray called EMDB (Eric's Movie Database)

    It lets me break my collection down into a bunch of different stats as well.

    I don't know if your database allows you organize by film but in case it does how does your horror collection break down numbers wise by decade?

    Yeah I guess this is a pretty nerdy thing to do but it was easy enough. Here is my collection broken down by decade...

    1920s-15
    1930s-47
    1940s-80
    1950s-91
    1960s-158
    1970s-289
    1980s-258
    1990s-165
    2000s-497
    2010s-88


    I couldn't believe how much I have in the 2000s. I guess it either means it was a good decade or I bought ton of crap:)

    Yup it took me literally as much time as it takes to write down the results.

    I obviously like older horror movies better :D
    Though the ones I have from the 2000s aren't bad!

    Wow. I kind of wish I didn't look to see. Not counting my diminishing DVD collection, only 32% of my blu-ray's are horror related (not counting titles such as Gremlins 2, Zombieland, etc) or duplicates (I have 12 different versions of Night of the Living Dead on bd alone). My blu-ray horror collection is as follows:

    20's - 1
    30's - 5
    40's - 2
    50's - 5
    60's - 3
    70's - 13
    80's - 36
    90's - 19
    00's - 21
    10's - 6

    Do you have a link for reference? I didn't even realize you could catalog movies on IMDB.

    I'm going to take a rough guess and say the bulk of my movies are from the 80's. To me that's really the golden era of horror movies. It's not like I'm being nostalgic either since I wasn't alive for most of the decade (born in 84).

    I think its pretty cool feature at IMDb. You can search your own collection with all sorts of fun/geeky search options (rank 'em by votes etc). It really comes in handy when I'm putting together viewing lists for Halloween and stuff like that.
    There are three display options for your list(s). Here is what one of mine looks like, "standard"
    http://www.imdb.com/list/PbXfNYRLoDk/

    To get started you'll have to sign up at IMDb. Once you did you can create lists and make them public or private.

    I use Film Aficionado which has a flaw when it comes to reporting how many titles you have by decade. If an item has more than one film, the year is reported as unknown.

    unknown - 250
    2010s - 23
    2000s - 93
    1990s - 42
    1980s - 187
    1970s - 123
    1960s - 12
    1950s - 4
    1940s - 0
    1930s - 3

    i'm interested in trying this. but I don't have any kind of catalogue system, so i'll have to do it manually with a pen and paper when I get home. a nerdy waste of time, I know, but i'm more than a little excited to try.

    According to my filmaf, my DVDs and Blu-rays fall into these:

    2010 (29)
    2000 (116)
    1990 (132)
    1980 (328)
    1970 (377)
    1960 (95)
    1950 (17)
    1940 (2)
    1930 (9)

    However, I also own a fair stack of discs that are not in the filmaf database.
