The best time of the year is upon us once again! For me, that means lots of horror movies, apple cider, and cool strolls through leaf-strewn streets. Though, life is a little busier than normal lately, so I will forego my usual goal of a movie per day. Still, there should be plenty of time for:
  • Halloween on Halloween, like I've done since '99.
  • The Walking Dead, season 5. Once this hits Netflix, I'll catch up on Rick & company's adventures with the cannibals.
  • Freddy vs. Jason: The Chronocinethon: all 20 classic (and not-so-classic) slasher movies in the order they were released to cinemas. (R.I.P. Wes Craven and thank you for so much)
  • The usual assortment of incredibly crappy flicks I seem to torture myself with every year. I've got a load of movies due to arrive from Vinegar Syndrome which should fit the bill nicely.

Opening Today:
Six Weeks of Halloween the 13th!


  1. YES. And now the Halloween season can truly start! It's always super-exciting to see this blog come back on-line every 20th. I'm thinking about Halloween and autumn all year round but when the Six Weeks officially, my brain clicks over into all-Halloween, all-the-time mode. (I'm actually drinking some cider as I type this!)

    I'm really looking forward to the Freddy/Jaosn retrospective. Seems like its been a while since one has been done and it would be a good way to parse out all the odd directions those series went in over the years.

    Vinegar Syndrome is good people and I can personally attest to this, as I'm mildly friendly with the Hysteria Continues podcast who have done a few commentaries on some of their releases. So it's cool to hear you'll be looking at their stuff.

  2. As I walked around the Halloween sections of some stores yesterday, I felt so relaxed and comfortable. Damn, I love this time of year.

    As for VS - yep, I gave 'em money for their Indiegogo and finally got around to requesting my 4 free movies. Definitely looking forward to those.

  3. Going to be a great year. So happy to see both of you keeping the six weeks tradition alive. Looking forward to so many horror movies this year, going to be a good one:)

    1. At this point, I can't imagine NOT doing the Six Weeks. It's such an intrinsic part of my holiday celebration now.
