October is always scary movie month and this year I decided to take on the challenge of 31 Days of Horror, with the goal of seeing 31 scary films I hadn't seen before that I had in my possession. Normally I'm a super strict on the challenge thing, but this time I was pretty relaxed as I didn't make it to 31, I snuck in a few Halloween favourites that were re-watches and I bought a few new titles. But breaking the rules lead to a lot of fun watches and missing a few days meant more sleep, so all in all it was all good.
The vlog above is a reflection on the experience as a whole, although some highlights include being extremely happy to finally see Carnival of Souls (which was fantastic) after it being on my to-see list for years and also the paranormal thriller Red Lights with Cillian Murphy. I also adored rewatching The Black Hole, even though it's scifi not horror, but it did plant the seed of an idea for a future project! And of course watching the Halloween films was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed all of them save #5 which didn't suit me, and #2 still reigns supreme as the best, and one of the scariest, of all time.
