Time to celebrate all those creepy shadows and bumps in the night.
It’s hard to believe that October is here again. Here at The Best Picture Project, that means a month focused on classic and great horror films that fit into the Halloween season.
Now I realize the past month was a bit slow and I do want to apologize for not bringing enough film fun to my slice of the blogosphere. Life has been busy, full of new ventures and topped off with a trip out west. I’m back now, refreshed and with my Netflix queue stocked with horror.
As always, I invite you to suggest your favorite Halloween spirited films. Right now, I want to promise getting to The Blob, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Dawn of the Dead (’78) and Frankenstein. To see what films I have covered last October, check out my October Haunts page. I may not be able to review all of them, but having more on my radar is always helpful. Let’s enjoy a spooky, fun filled October!
“Fasten your drool cups, and ready your vomit bags! We’re going to the movies! Frights, camera, action!”
Tomorrow is October! My favorite month is nearly upon us and I invite you to celebrate with me. While the air is chilling, the leaves are changing color and kids are gearing up for an all night masquerade-sugar rush, I will be turning my focus to films of the season. I haven’t had many chances to review a slew of horror films, so here they come, in all their screams of bloody murder and madness, with nightmares to spare! Keeping with my theme of award deserving, quality films, I’m trying to keep to classics and greats that fit into the Halloween theme. So don’t expect to see remakes or any high number sequels. To give you a little taste, here are a few films that I promise to review: Poltergeist, Night of the Living Dead, Psycho, Nosferatu,and (for the kiddies!) Beetlejuice.
Now let me ask you, what great horror/Halloween films should I check out? I can’t promise to get to them all, but you know I’m always looking for good movies to see. And this October, I plan to be too scared to sleep all Halloween night. Join me, wont you?
