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!
