31 Days of Halloween III: The Dream Warriors

"Greetings, my friend. We are all interested in October, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of this month."

          --The Amazing Criswell (Probably)
Well, here we are again: October!

The turning leaves, the smell of smoke on the air, windfall apples and salmon-colored sunsets--I want very badly to diffuse that list with a punchline, but I can't. I love this time of year. The days are shorter, and the nights are cooler and darker.

For the last couple of years, I've spent October watching a different horror film every night, and writing it up on this Livejournal. It's a daunting undertaking; I'm a busy guy, and I'm busier this year than I have been previously. Still, I've got quite a few movies on my "to-see" list, and this gives me a good excuse to burn through them while I'm avoiding actual responsibility.

Once again, we'll see how things go. I have obligations on EVERY weeknight this year, and it's gonna be tough to work in a movie every day. I might have to take in a Halloween special on my lunchbreak, or watch one o' them Halloweeny Warner Bros. or Disney cartoons on the nights that I don't have much time. One way or another, though, I intend to get through this month with 31 scary movies under my belt, as I have for the last two years. A lot of them will be a chore to get through, and some of them might not make a very good read, but by God, I'm committed. Here goes.

October 2: Troll Hunter
October 3: The People Under the Stairs
