Spooktober Movie Essentials

When I was in university, doing 31 in 31 (yes, a horror movie for every day of Spooktober), was essential. I haven’t done it in a couple years, and probably won’t have time this year either. Still, it’s fun to put together my ideal Halloween viewing list. I’ll likely get through a good chunk of them, anyways. So here goes – a mix of the fun, the strange, the macabre, and the gory.

  1. 31 in 31 is a serious undertaking and not to be taken lightly. A lot of these movies help make it tons of fun if you aren’t into watching gory slashers every day of the week!
