11:14 pm - 31 Days of Halloween 5: Son of the Bride of the Boss of 31 Days of Halloween
"I'm so glad I live in a world where are Octobers."
       -- L. M. Montgomery

I will grant a quote from Anne of Green Gables might be an unusual way to begin a month's worth of horror movie reviews, but the opening lines of Something Wicked This Way Comes just seemed too obvious.

Every October I make a point of watching one (1) horror movie every night, and making a post about it. In fact, tonight marks the fifth anniversary of my decision to do this, and--as always--it looks like a pretty daunting task from where I stand right now.

I have regular obligations on a couple of weeknights, which means that if I run up against a time crunch, I may have to resort to a TV special or the Halloween episode of some terrible sitcom you haven't thought about since 1992. One day I will organize myself so well that I'll begin the month with a list of 31 pre-chosen movies, but I've generally relied on recommendations from Netflix. This year, I'm going to make a conscious effort to be more careful in choosing films. There are huge subsections of the horror genre that just don't appeal to me, and I feel like I've missed out on a lot of the classics. Accordingly, I'm going to stick mostly to the mid-20th century. One way or the other, though, I'm going to come out the other side of October with 31 reviews written--even if I have to hack my way through.

Ready? Here we go.
