Scary Anthropomorphized Jack-O-Lantern Holding a Scythe

Halloween 2k19: 31 Day Horror Marathon

This year I’ll be watching 31 horror movies- 1 for each day in October. I haven’t watched most of these movies or don’t remember watching them because I was too young to comprehend them at the time, so most of my thoughts to them will be pretty raw.

After watching and thinking about the movies, I’ll be posting my review/thoughts up on here. I’d love it if you left your feedback and experiences as well. Or if you want to lurk and follow along- that’s cool too. The more the merrier.

NOTE(10/3/19): I might move movies around, but if I do, the list below will be updated to reflect the change. The movies themselves will not change, however.

NOTE (10/28/19): After a few friends of mine pointed out that Joker is not officially categorized as a horror on any mainstream sites like Wikipedia , I’ve decided to add a bonus horror movie as a substitute. I do think the Joker movie is a horror and will address that concern later, but I think the arguments against it are decent enough to warrant a bonus movie. As such I will be watching Hell House LLC for a bonus 32nd movie. 

The Selection Process

Most movies were picked off of the Dreadit Movie Guide. I usually watch a lot of supernatural movies and shy away from anything that has even a little bit of gore which is why I tried to “face my fears” on this list and add them on . I also wanted a bit of variety which is why there’s a healthy mix of sub-genres. I wish I could add more foreign films – goals for next year.
