Six Weeks of Halloween: 2004

Six Weeks of Halloween
Six Weekends of Movies:
  1. September 24th
  2. October 1st
  3. October 8th
  4. October 15th
  5. October 22nd
  6. October 31st

The Plan

Halloween, being just one twenty-four-hour period falling on October thirty-first, is just too damned short. I've decided to celebrate Halloween for six weeks.

On a Friday, Saturday or, possibly, Sunday of each of the weekends listed above, I'm going to watch 3 or 4 horror movies. I will also eat candy and drink beer.

Anyone who comes to partake in the festivities can vote on what to watch, choosing from one of the categories below (more categories to come, maybe).

The actual day of Halloween is the exception. On that day, I will more than likely be watching movies the entire day, choosing whatever I feel like watching.

In addition, I will be continuing my 6-year-long tradition of watching John Carpenter's Halloween on the day of Halloween. This will be a part of my John Carpenter Chronocinethon, so prior to October 31st I will need to watch Dark Star, Assault on Precinct 13 and Someone's Watching Me! This is why there are no Carpenter flicks on the list below.

The 3 movies with images are my first choices to watch, but any of them can be swapped for an alternate. Italics means I don't own the movie yet, but it's on the way.

  • Carnival of Souls (1960)
  • Dementia 13 (1963)
