This marks the fifth year of my journey into the realm of the horror movie genre. For the month of October, I do my best to average one movie a day that is supposedly scary. The years have taken me through some classics, cult favorites, recent schlock, monsters, vampires, zombies, hauntings, psychos, with a little bit of everything in between and beyond. To think when I was younger, I was so scared of these movies that I couldn’t even watch the previews on television commercials.
Welp, this year is no different. I decided to kick things off with the new Evil Dead movie and will wrap things up on Halloween with a marathon of the original Evil Dead series. I felt this would be a nice way to bookend the month.
In the meantime, I will be watching a mixture of DVDs and streaming content courtesy of Netflix and attempting to not revisit anything from the past. A bonus this year comes with television series dipping into this realm a bit more so I will be interspersing movies with season 3 of The Walking Dead. If only American Horror Story: Asylum would get picked up by Netflix, then I would be extremely happy!
Alas, I have plenty of movies lined up and am hoping to get to some that I have had on my radar for a while and just never got around to watching. This month is always an exciting adventure into film, and I am looking forward to another rousing month of shocks, frights, and dyed corn syrup.
