    Want your life to have a challenge?  Want an excuse to watch more movies?  Want to win FREE PRIZES?  Then all you need to do is join The Kryptic Army!  Now, I know what you're thinking.  Just what is this "Kryptic Army", and am I going to get shipped off overseas?  Well, the only time foreign countries are going to be involved is when we're talking about movies and where they are from.

    Our goal / mission for the Kryptic Army is simple:  To help point out some sub-genres or films that you might have missed out so far.  And to have fun.  Here's how it works:

  • First of all, you have to sign up for our Kryptic Mailing list (you knew there was a catch to this, didn't you?).  You can do that by scrolling down to below these instructions.  If you are already on our mailing list, then you already are eligible to participate.

  • On the first of every month, you will be sent a new Mission through the mailing list.  In this Mission, it will name a Horror Sub-Genre or particular theme for that month.  It could be something like Jess Franco films, or films starring a particular actor.

  • Your Mission will be to find and watch 2 films from that Sub-Genre that you have not seen before within that month.  Yes, they have to be Horror films.  If you're not sure if it qualifies, email me and we'll discuss.  But you have to sign in our Mailing List to participate, otherwise you will not be receiving the monthly Missions.

  • After watching these films, you will have to be "debriefed".  This means you need to email me the titles you watched and what you thought of them.  Not looking for an essay here, just maybe a sentence or two on if you liked them or not.

  • Here's where it gets fun.  For each month that you complete your mission, and you email me the details, your name will be thrown into a drawing, which will be held at the end of the year.  The more times you participate throughout the year, the more times your name will be in there.  For example, if you complete all 12 missions, then your name will be in the pot 12 times, giving you more chances to win.  You can only win once per year, but again, the more months you participate, the more chances of your name being drawn.

  • Prizes will consist of DVDs, autographed items, and other highly valuable items.  See below for the previous prizes that were given out.

    We will also have a Message Forum where you could go and discuss further the films that you watched in more of an open and detailed manner, comparing what films everyone has watched.  You could also use this forum to find titles if you're having troubles with the particular category.  To visit our Message Board to discuss what you've seen, just click HERE.

    Also, we will be going on the honor system of you selecting films that you have not seen before.  But we do have spies out there watching.  If we find out that you've actually seen the movie before, you will be captured, identified as a traitor, and served up as the main course at the Kitley's Annual Halloween Party the following October.  And if you've seen how some of these people eat that come to the party, you won't be in too good of shape.

    Here's how you get started.  If you are already on our mailing list, then you don't need to do anything until you receive your first mission.  If you are not on our mailing list, then enter your email address below.  Then come first of the month, wait for your instructions.

    Good luck on your missions, and looking forward to hearing from you.  And remember....let's have some fun with this!
