This is the, lets say temporary, home for HDTV horror movie content.
The rules for this section are identical to the Higher Quality Section with two notable examples.

Firstly
  • If a print is WATERMARKED, this must clearly be stated in the topic and ideally a screenshot evidence the level of 'soiling' is required.
    In terms of watermarks, the following classify:
    • Advertisements - Any adverts that have not be properally removed
    • Network Logo - Any network logo no matter how brief or faint must be stated

Secondly
  • If there are any imperfections with the rip, these must also be stated. This is not restricted to but may include audio problems or dropped frames.


These two bits of information are mandatory for posting in this section, please post that the rip is clean if it does not contain any of these.

The inclusion of screenshots is highly resirable.

  • Releases only here please!
  • The perfect title is something along the lines of:
    Movie Title (Year) (1080i/720p/Rip) (Watermarked)
    Please specify the standard and if its a soiled print
  • HDTV or DVDr only. DVDr isn't an ideal format, but this is the only place for it.
  • No need for REL: tags if you come from a board that does it
  • In topic title don't use all upper case or all lower case
  • Remember to post an IMDB link, and if you can a little plot summary and poster from http://www.amazon.com neatens the posts up.
  • This ones quite important, I think it might be worth mentioning whether something is cut or not. I know horror fans always look for the gorriest bloodbath they can get their hands on
  • Please try and post the original filenames (best respect you can show to the ripper) and ensure that the rip your posting hasn't already been posted.

IMDB:
Please include this at the very least. Many films, horror films especially, go under different names in different regions, therefore including an IMDB is a must to clarify your release/link. Please include this in every topic.
http://www.imdb.com

Rip information:
Very important information, so people know exactly what to expect.
The best tool to give you the information is called gspot, and is very simple to use. Its the top hit in google.

Posters:
Not needed, but makes your topic pleasing to the eye. Movie posters can normally be found on:
http://www.amazon.com
and some others can be found at:
http://www.amazon.co.uk

Screenshots say a thousand words
If you could provide screenshots of the rip, they say a lot of what is in store quality wise. With horror movies, and the rarity of rips it is always important to show people what to expect.

For those that don't know how to take screenshots, I'll post a short guide, for those that don't have any webspace, you can upload images to a temp. image store here:
http://imageshack.us/

You will need nandub, virtualdub or preferably virtualdubmod to take pictures, and some paint app (Paint shop pro is great for this). Load up your avi in the program. Use the navigation bar along the bottom and scroll to a random point, preferably some high motion points of the movie, then go to video>copy source frame to clipboard (this maybe under edit in virtualdubmod). Now load up your paint app and paste. Repeat two to six times so you have a range of shots. Save them as jpgs, naming them something like ripname1.jpg. Finally, navigate to:
http://imageshack.us/
Use the browse button and upload your files.

To post the images, use:
Code:
[img]http://members.lycos.co.uk/hhahfiles2/uploads/ripname1.jpg[/img]


You can of course use your own webspace, provided it allows remote linking. Most freehosts don't.
