31 Days of Halloween II: Electric Boogaloo

I'm doing it again, because I'm a glutton for punishment.

Last October, I watched -- and wrote up -- a different horror movie every night. It was a great little exercise. I got to do some writing, I got to make a small dent in my depressingly long backlog of films, and I may have broken my brain on the Japanese movie Hausu. I had such a good time that in spite of the various weeknight commitments I've picked up in the meantime, I've decided to do it again! God help me.

As stated last year, I have regular obligations on certain weeknights which may prevent me from watching a feature film, but I have fond memories (fonder, in most cases, than is really warranted) of the Halloween specials that used to air every year when I was a kid, and I plan to revisit some of those. There are also quite a few excellent short films available around the web, that might make good fodder for nights when I just don't have a lot of time. The emphasis will be on feature films I've never seen before, mostly on older ones, and while they'll all be generally Halloween-appropriate, they may not all be horror. I haven't made a definite list yet, so we'll see how it goes. Got suggestions? I'm willing to entertain them.
