No, it’s not Christmas yet, but it’s that time of year when all of the ghouls, ghosts, and monsters come out to play. Everything feels a little bit spookier, the air’s a little colder, and everyone wants to hear a good ghost story.
I’m practically a kid in a candy store with a new horror film out every week and all of the fun decorations in stores and in people’s yards. There’s spooky plays, candles, and the beginning of cozy, sweater weather.
To help set the right tone, I’ve added a few fun pictures I took at the employee preview night of Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights here into the post. If you’re interested in the event at all, it’s a pretty fun time and the Poltergeist, Trick R Treat, and Universal Monster Mazes are a truly great time.
This year, I’m on a mission to watch 31 films to commemorate this frightfully fun time of year and I’ll be posting about each and every one of them. So grab your flashlight and your costume and get ready for a month of tricks and treats. I’ll be covering a wide array of genres and many are films I haven’t seen before. To give you just a taste of what’s to come, on the slate are vampires, werewolves, and ghosts (oh, my!). There’s also a musical, some family friendly favorites, and plenty of fierce women (of course).
While there will be a post here every day, for even more fun, check out my official Tumblr page for gifs, photosets, and more from the films I’m watching. It’s gonna be a great month and the fun all starts tomorrow, October 1st.
