Re: The 14th Annual "October Horror Movie Challenge" (10/1 - 10/31) ***The List Threa

(Only) My 2nd October Horror Movie Challenge!

I'm still somewhat new to the horror genre. I'm learning to face my fears hehe. My goal is to watch as many new movies/shows as possible!

*indicates first time viewing

October 1st

1. Hocus Pocus (1993)
I'll be honest, I didn't want this to be my first (title of my sex tape). But I really needed a kid friendly movie and I'll watch this more than once cause it's a fave, so why not?

October 2nd

2. Ghostbusters (1984)*
I'm including this movie as a first time view because I had only ever seen bits and pieces while channel surfing over the years. Listen, you smell something?? That's the smell of me watching this every October in the future.

3. Marrowbone (2017)*
This was a wonderful watch. Hulu has this listed under "Scary as Hell" and I did not get that vibe. Definitely spooky, but I never got the scared sweats. Has a nice little twist and if you possess emotions this will give you the feels. Also, loved that it took place in the 60s(?) and was filmed in Spain. Neato mosquito.

October 3rd

4. Truth or Dare (2018)*
I liked it! Reminded me of something you'd see on MTV though. Or am I only making that comparison because that Teen Wolf guy is in this?

5. Homicide Hunter S7 E10*
Eh, the narrator was terrible. So there's that.

October 4th

6. Live Event: The Haunted Old City Jail Tour in Charleston, SC
Walking through a building built in 1802 that still had the original jail doors was so cool. But I spent $30 for a guide to tell me crappy ghost stories for 30 minutes. I'd rather eat glue than do that again.

October 6th

7. Cabin Fever (2002)*
This was pretty gross but Ryder Strong got me through it.

8. Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead (2009)*
I was on a bachelorette weekend so me and 5 other girls could not stop laughing at this awful movie. Are we sure this shouldn't have been a comedy?

October 8th

9. Halloween (1978)
There is so much I love about this movie, it's always fun to watch. Gearing myself up for the direct sequel that comes out this month! Will probably shat myself if I watch it in a theatre but I think it's worth it.

10. The Shining (1980)*
I always feel so proud to say that I've been to the hotel that Stephen King used as inspiration in his novel. While the hotel in this movie isn't the actual Overlook Hotel in Colorado, the interior looks almost identical. Anyway, I liked how random and weird everything was in this movie. Oh, and I wanna pet Danny's hair. SO CUTE.

11. Castle Rock S1 E9*
This is the episode where it finally starts answering some questions you had. A lot of "a-ha!" moments but still not enough to completely figure things out.

12. Castle Rock S1 E10*
More questions answered, however a good bit was still left unknown. Overall I really enjoyed this show, but I really had to make sure I dedicated uninterrupted time with zero distractions to keep up with all of the things.

13. Casper (1995)
I grew up watching this movie over and over and over but it's been many years since I've seen it. Hit me right in the emotional gut. I'M NOT CRYING YOU'RE CRYING.

14. What We Do in the Shadows (2014)
Watching this for a second time was needed because I swear it was so much funnier than I remembered. I wanna be the human friend of all the vampires!

October 9th

15. Coraline (2009)*
This provided an unsettling amount of a child's version of scary. Whoops, guess my son will have nightmares about a human spider made of needles, having your mouth sewn shut, and parents with buttons for eyes.

October 10th

16. The 'Burbs (1989)
I used to LOVE watching this in my younger years. I realize now that it's kind of annoying, but I just can't let this one go without having been watched this season. #sentimentalvalue

October 11th

17. Child's Play (1988)*
Yet another movie where a 6 year old boy suffers significant trauma. He will spend a lifetime in recovery and will never trust red heads again. And I'm talking about the actor, not the character he plays.

18. Piranha (1978)*
If I were a young adult in 1978 and had a sleepover with my girlfriends to watch this, would it have freaked us out? Well, you know what they say. Piranha out in the day, stay away. Piranha out at night, stay away.

October 12th

19. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
What I'm about to tell you may offend you. I was never weirdly obsessed with this movie like my peers were/are. Sure, it brings back childhood memories and it's dark and awkward and has a couple of good songs, but eh, I realized this year that I could still live my life if I never watched it again. Oh hey, is the dog's name Zero because he has zero tolerance for child abuse?

October 14th

20. Ghostbusters II (1989)*
Okay, this was funny. Just like the first one. Bill Murray may be ugly but my golly he is a talented crater-face! No judgment, I am also a victim of scarring acne that resulted in bullying.

October 15th

21. The Skeleton Key (2005)*
I really appreciate Kate Hudson branching out of her typical role. While it's slightly predictable, it still provided me with plenty of surprises and I loved it. That ending though!!!
