October Horror Movie Challenge

30 September, 2013

October has been prowling around outside my house like a stray cat, sniffing at the doors and windows, and I fear that I won’t be able to stop it from sneaking in tomorrow. It will bring many things with it — longer nights, colder days, the smell of coal fires from neighbours’ chimneys, the scratching of dead leaves dragged along the pavement by the wind, and the October Horror Movie Challenge.

I was introduced to this event by various people on Google+ last year. There seem to be a few variants of it, but the most common one is to watch a horror film a day throughout October, with at least half of these being films that you’ve never seen before.

Last year I fell short, due to work deadlines and some personal matters. This year I am determined to make it work. I have many possible films picked out — enough that I can watch at least one previously unseen film every day.

I shall post about the films I’ve watched here and on G+. There should be a lot of variety, but most of them will be older films, especially Italian horrors from the 1960s and ’70s.

If you want to join in, please feel free to comment here or join in on G+. We can share some nightmares together.
