(Note – I wrote this on August 15th 2019)
Greetings, Glancers! I’m going to call this at the outset – I probably won’t complete this mission. Contrary to the four billion or so posts I write every week about movies and music, I don’t watch as many movies as I used to – at least not on a regular basis. So much of my time outside of work and family stuff is taken up by gaming and TV, reading and writing and hunting tramps – that I don’t have the luxury to watch a movie a day. I wanted to give it a shot, and if I can rope in the kids and wife to help out it will make things easier. Therefore, the post below actually contains more than 31 films – some will be family friendly, some will be more thriller based to rope my wife in, some are classics I’ve already seen and try to watch every Halloween, but most will be films I haven’t seen yet or haven’t watched in a long time.
That’s about it – I know many of my fellow bloggers and horror movie fan friends will be doing something similar. If I get through 10 of these I’ll be happy, but whatever I don’t cover I’ll aim to finish by the end of the year. Reviews will come at some point. I’ve picked movies which are currently on/should be on Amazon, Netflix, Now TV, or I have recorded at some point off TV. Here we go:
Ghost Stories Freehold Aaron’s Blood The Laplace’s Demon
The House With A Clock In Its Walls Thirteen Ghosts
Take Shelter Poltergeist Remake Halloween (Original)
Halloween 2018 Deadtime Stories Body Count
They Remain Ghost Ship The Phoenix Tapes 97 Ouija
The Perfection The Purge It Comes At Night Trick R Treat
The Girl With All The Gifts Love Would You Rather
The Divide Silent House Remake House
Cube Zero The Love Witch Pet Bordello Of Blood
Inferno Crawl Goosebumps 2
It Chapter 2 Dead Of Night (both) Hell Fest
Let me know in the comments if you’re undertaking a similar challenge. If you’re not that brave, feel free to share any of the scary movies you plan to watch in October and those you watch each Halloween!
