Welcome to the WikiProject Horror Collaboration of the Month! This effort seeks to identify articles within the genre of horror that require improvement. Every month, a single article will be selected as the collaboration, and everyone will work to improve it as much as possible.

Nominating articles[edit]

To nominate an article, add

===[[Name of article]]===

Nomination text. ~~~~

# ~~~~


at the bottom of the list of candidates, filling in the name of the article and the nomination text (which should indicate why the article would benefit from a collaboration and what needs to be improved). It is recommended that specific goals be given for new collaborations, such as "promoting to GA status", to help direct the efforts of contributors.

Please remember to add collaboration-candidate=yes to the {{HorrorWikiProject}} project banner at the top of the article's talk page (see the Project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax).

Stalled nominations[edit]

Nominations which have "stalled" through lack of support are listed at: Wikipedia:WikiProject Horror/Collaboration/Stalled. Stalled nominations are those which have received no more than two votes of support (including the original nomination) during their first six months on the candidates list. Should a stalled nomination receive a third vote of support, its listing should return to the list of active candidates below as it may have sufficient community interest to be selected.

Current collaboration[edit]



An influential character from an influential film. The article on Leatherface is in a sad state of underdevelopment and is in dire need of expansion. There are so many things that need to be done to this article in order for it to reach its maximum potential with major rewrites, and addition of information (these are just a few things that need to occur in order for this article to be expanded). I have already created a draft for the purpose of expanding and revising the old article which I will include the link to it here Hopefully we can get some pros in on this to expand the article to its full potential.--Paleface Jack (talk) 22:57, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

I Drink Your Blood[edit]

This film has been a major influence to the exploitation horror genre. Its infamous marketing campaign, and controversial rating by the MPA due to the film's graphic content (it was the first film to be rated X on violence alone), along with its large cult following over the years make this an ideal article to expand. As for the article itself, it is underdeveloped and missing a great deal of information on the film, more information on the film's production, release, controversy and reception needs to be either expanded or added.

I have already started working on expanding the article and I have created a Userspace Draft for the project so if you want to help expand it please do it here.

Thanks. Glad to have you aboard. :)--Paleface Jack (talk) 17:33, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

At the beginning of every month, a new collaboration article should be selected. This should generally be the candidate with the most support (and the oldest candidate in case of a tie).

To archive the current collaboration
  1. Remove {{HCOTM}} from the top of the current collaboration article.
  2. Change the date details on the article talk page past-collaboration=<start date>–<end date> in the {{HorrorWikiProject}} project banner to include the end date.
  3. Add the current article to the bottom of the history section.
  4. Move the current article's nomination text to the archive.
To select the new collaboration
  1. Add {{HCOTM}} to the top of the new article.
  2. Move the new article's nomination text to the "Current collaboration" section.
  3. Update Wikipedia:WikiProject Horror/Collaboration/Current to point to the new article.
  4. Replace collaboration-candidate=yes with past-collaboration=<start date>–<end date> in the {{HorrorWikiProject}} banner at the top of the new article's talk page. The "<end-date>" element should read "open" to start with.
Notify other members of the WikiProject
  1. Add {{subst:Wikipedia:WikiProject Horror/Collaboration/Notice}} ~~~~ to the talk pages of users who supported the new article; do this only after Wikipedia:WikiProject Horror/Collaboration/Current has been updated to reflect the new selection.
  2. Add a post on the Notice Board advertising the new collaboration to project members.
  3. Notify any relevant task forces of the current collaboration.
