Halloweentime is my favorite six weeks of the year.  The skittering of dead leaves on the ground, the scent of mulled cider cooking on the stove and the appearance of plastic, severed heads at the local grocery store all contribute to a season like no other.

Here, I'll write about the flicks I watch throughout my forty-two day fest.  My goal is to watch at least one movie a day... if not more.  To that end, I've got a metric ton of horror front-loaded in my Netflix queue and more sitting on my shelves and hard drives.

My viewing plans include keeping up with this year's crop of Horrorfest movies, now dubbed the After Dark Originals, and the two new Ghost House Underground offerings.  Likewise, I've got to catch up with last year's Fangoria Frightfest films.  I'm also looking forward to checking out The Ward, Stake Land, I Saw the Devil, and Let Me In.  And, as per tradition, I've got to watch both Trick 'r Treat and the original Halloween.

Outside of the film-watchin', I'll be attending two horror conventions this season.  I love the hell out of these things.  There's nothing quite like being surrounded by hundreds of fellow horror nuts (it's black T-shirts as far as the eye can see).  On October 1st, it's Cinema Wasteland.  There, I need to shake Frank Henenlotter's hand and thank him for the wondrous insanity of Brain Damage. On October 29th, it'll be the first annual Flint Horror Con, where I've got to buy more of Steve Jencks' awesome horror movie poster interpretations.

So, feel free to stop on by from time to time and leave a comment.  And, if you've got movie recommendations, leave those here too.

Let Six Weeks of Halloween IX Begin!


  1. Oh man, I was really worried you weren't going to post this year. Great to hear from you again, Rex!

    I actually just attended my first horror con this past weekend, "Monster-Mania 20" in Baltimore. I had a great time and have written all about it over on my blog.

  2. Woohoo!

    I'll be checking out The Ward too! And continue avoiding Apollo 18!

  3. I'm so excited for 6WH this year. I think I'll have some overlap with you on this year's marathon too... Looking forward to your writups! And I'm going to Fantastic Fest later this week... So very excited!
