There’s a thing I keep meaning to do every October, mostly because the time of the year has a tendency to get to me. I have a deep love of horror movies, although I’m not a huge fan of splatterpunk. Which is why October, when the night are already longer than the days and getting longer all the time and it’s not NaNoWriMo time yet is a perfect time for horror movies. I’m already in the mood anyway, since Halloween is fast approaching. And since especially lately I seem to only be able to do things that I plan in advance, this is my plan; I’m going to watch a horror movie every day in October and try to talk about each in turn. Below is a list of new friends, old friends, and best friends. And since no plan survives contact with the enemy, I’m adding a list of possibles to replace any of the movies on the main list.

  1. Fire in the Sky
  2. Little Evil
  3. Lights Out
  4. Split
  5. Dead Girl
