It has become a tradition for lots of horror fans in recent years to celebrate Halloween by watching at least one horror film each day. I start off each October with the intention of doing just that, but often life gets in the way and I fall short of the goal. Despite how difficult it has been to reach the full goal, I'm going to make it even more difficult for myself this year by also doing a blog post about a horror topic each day of the month! Some of these will be full articles about a horror-related subject, some will be film or book reviews, and other will simply be links to spooky things I've stumbled across. Regardless, I'm dedicating my month to celebrating all things horror, and I hope you readers will join me and watch some of the movies. Also, I'd love to hear suggestions of film for my 31 since I only have a dozen or so pre-chosen. Tonight's film, by the way, is the cult classic Motel Hell, which is being screened locally. I've never seen it on a big screen, so I'm really looking forward to some canabalistic highjinks.

If you are unsure what films you want to watch for the month, here are some helpful lists:
Time out London's actually quite good list of the Top 100 Horror Films voted on by well-known horror enthusiasts.
The Atlantic's insanely exhaustive list of every horror film on television in the month of October.
I'll also be writing a bunch of review this month for The Blackest Eyes and hopefully recording a podcast or two there, also. i'll let you guys know when those are up.
