Shocktober 2016 – My List

Category : Uncategorized

Every year one of my favourite video game Journalists Patrick Klepek and his wife Katie decided that they’re going to try to watch 31 horror movies during the month of October. Patrick usually has a list ready to go, but due to the birth of their new baby girl, he’s been busy and unable to post a list, so I decided to go in the style of him, and make my own list. I’ll also post his list when and if he posts one!

I went through what I haven’t watched yet in my collection of films, some of these films are on Netflix and some of them i’ve bought. I also decided to re-watch some older films that I remember liking, but haven’t seen in a while. Those are under the honourable mentions. Im also going to post about 40 films, so theres leeway in watching. I won’t watch them all but dang nabbit, I’m gonna try, and I’m also starting 6 days late… CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

below is my list of 40 films, with years and directors. I will do a follow up list to say what I did and did not watch, what classics I added, because I have John Carpenter’s The Thing Scream Factory that I’ve been waiting for months for a release, is coming from amazon, and you can bet your sweet ass I’m going to watch it!
