October 1
1) Night of the Living Dead (1968) (Bluray) (31 Films Subset) - Starting the month out right with a 50th anniversary showing of this iconic film. The criterion bluray transfer is amazing. Movie: 5/5 Disc: 5/5
2) The City of the Dead (Bluray) - Christopher Lee in a horror movie, count me in.....Creepy and atmospheric. Very "Hammer-Like" quality. Movie: 4/5 Disc: 4/5

October 2
3) Leatherface (Bluray) - Not nearly as bad as I had read. Not great either, but certainly watchable and way better than the last sequel (which I know isn't saying much). Movie 2.5/5 Disc 3.5/5

October 3
4) Ghost House (DVD) - A cross between Drag Me To Hell and The Grudge starring Scout-Taylor Compton of Halloween fame. Movie 3/5 Disc 3/5
