31 Days of Horror

This time of year has always been my favorite since I was a kid. I love all things horror & Halloween related. My dad introduced me to the horror genre back in the 80s by renting the first Nightmare on Elm Street when he got our first VCR. I think I was about 7 at the time. My dad did a pretty good job of explaining how it was just a movie, & that there was nothing to be afraid of. My dad regularly brought home scary movies, and then it evolved into him trying to find the worst B movie horror films he could find all through middle school & high school. I remember watching such fine flicks as Basket Case & Chopping Mall.

As Evil Husband is not a fan of the horror movie genre, despite the fact that he enjoys The Walking Dead, is a huge Stephen King fan, and loves haunted houses (I don’t get it either), I have fallen out of my yearly October ritual of watching all things horror.  I’ve watched the staples on Halloween or the few days leading up, but not like I used to. I lived for AMC’s Fear Fest every year when I was younger. But, now we have Netflix & Hulu and a whole streaming world of horribly awesome horror flicks to choose from.

So, I’ve decided to do a 31 Days of Horror movie marathon. All recommendations are currently on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime or Pluto TV.  I used the Dreadit movie guide from r/horror & recommendations from r/NetflixBestOf on Reddit, as well as this list on Letterboxd for Amazon Prime. And some are just my a few of favorite horror movies from when I was a kid.

I will try to post my reviews as I watch each movie, but there may be a few posts with multiple reviews. The list is comprised of horror classics & newer films that I have never seen. Not listed, but are the staples of horror & must watch films around Halloween are of course the Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street & Friday the 13th films.

Bonus recommendation for a super scary TV series is The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix if you have not watched it. Hill House is by far one of the best horror shows I have ever watched & legit made me scream out loud. And for the record, it takes a lot to scare me.
