october film list.


it’s the most wonderful time of the year…

at this point, my october film list has now become somewhat of a tradition. each october I attempt to watch 31 different ‘halloween films’ (one per day of the month). completion wise, there are some years where I do better than others. but this year, I’ve already got a jump start and am aiming to knock out more than any previous october (woot).

it seems I’ve really mixed up the list up this go around. in trying to watch movies that are newer and that I haven’t seen, you’ll see that films like Frankenweenie & ParaNorman made the cut. I am also apparently really cranking up the 90’s vibe with new additions like Scream, Sleepy Hollow, and The Blair Witch Project. I’m hoping these list tweaks will only further motivate me to just keep on watching

I’ve made sure to denote where you can stream these (w/out renting or purchasing) where applicable. so get your dvds & rokus ready friends! here’s a look at my 2013 list.
