About two (or three?) years ago, I started a tradition that I’m hoping to continue forever. It’s very simple.
Every October, Lori and I (and whoever else wants to join in) watch *ONLY horror movies for the entire month. Good ones, bad ones, funny ones, disturbing ones, it all goes in the pile. We watch as many as we can fit in a month. Last year was pretty crazy for us, so we didn’t get to do as many as we wanted. Hopefully, this year we’ll manage a bit better.
Here’s what’s on the docket this year:
CLASSICS WE ALREADY LOVE
Evil Dead II
Shaun of the Dead
The Exorcist / Exorcist III
Zombie (dir. Lucio Fulci)
Martin (George Romero’s vampire flick)
The Blob (1988)
Let Sleeping Corpses Lie
The Kingdom (Danish television series)
Waxwork / Waxwork II
Nosferatu the Vampyre
The Haunting (1963)
… and more. I know I’m forgetting some. We try to cast a wide net, all the better to catch some good ones we wouldn’t have seen otherwise.
Tonight, after my Mom’s art show, it shall begin.
* This month I will be making one teeny tiny exception to the rule. The Social Network comes out today and there’s no way I’m waiting a month to see it. I made the rule, therefore I can bend the rule.
