Its that time of year again, the time of year when all the ghosts and goblins come out and beg for candy. When the days get shorter and the temperature slowly drops and chills you to the bone! Thats right its October, the month where its acceptable to watch or at least try to watch 31 horror movies.

Every year, I wait in anticipation to get Patrick Klepek and Katie Klepek’s Shocktober list (Well known for his work at GiantBomb, Kotaku and now Waypoint). If you like Horror movies as well please check out their Til’ Death Do Us Part Horror Podcast, it is superb.

Every year I take their list and manipulate it a bit and take inspiration from it (I try to watch most of the stuff they list, but my resources are limited).

I will list of their shocktober list for the month of October and then I will post mine, you’ll see some similarities and some differences as I have purchased a lot of Horror movies lately in anticipation for this month, and every year I have to add in my staples for the Halloween month.

Klepek’s List:

It Comes At Night

Gerald’s Game

Flatliners (Original)

Creep

Creep II

The Blackcoat’s Daughter

A Dark Song

The Devil’s Candy

Split

Raw

The Void

Hounds Of Love

Jigsaw or Saw

Leatherface or The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

Little Evil

Cult Of Chucky (on Netflix as of October 3rd)

Chucky Series (your choice!)

Get Out

47 Metres Down

Bone Tomahawk

Shin Godzilla

Train To Busan

Mother!

Legend Of Hell House

The Mothman Prophecies

The Happening

The Look Like People

Lady In White

Prevenge

The Craft

A really well rounded list from Patrick and Katie this year, Unfortunately the ones coming out in theatres I’m not entirely sure if ill be able to get to them, so I manipulated their list to put in stuff I haven’t seen yet and my staples for Halloween.

My list is as follows and my method of viewing them:

Cult Of Chucky (Netflix – October 3rd)

It Comes At Night (Blu-Ray)

The Blackcoat’s Daughter (shudder)

Split (Blu-Ray)

The Devil’s Candy (Netflix)

Bone Tomahawk (Netflix)

Tourist Trap (Blu-Ray)

Cat In The Brain (Shudder)

Wicker Man {Original} – (Blu-Ray)

Mama (Blu-Ray)

Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (Blu-Ray)

Last House On The Left (Blu-Ray)

It (TV Mini Series) (Blu-Ray) – If you haven’t seen the movie adaptation that would also be worth checking out during October!

The Purge (Blu-Ray)

The Purge: Election Year (Blu-Ray)

Scream 2 (Blu-Ray)

Scream 3 (Blu-Ray)

The Editor (Blu-Ray)

John Carpenter’s Halloween (Blu-Ray)

Hatchet (Blu-Ray)

Destroyer or Edge of Sanity (Blu-Ray – i put these like this because the scream factory double pack includes both movies)

Video Dead/Terror Vision (Blu-Ray – double pack from scream factory again)

Phantom Of The Paradise (Blu-Ray)

Night Of The Demons (Blu-Ray)

Dark Skies (Blu-Ray)

The Crow (Blu-Ray)

Nightmare On Elm Street 3: The Dream Warriors (Blu-Ray)

28 Days Later… (Blu-Ray)

The Descent (Blu-Ray)

Paranormal Activity 3 (Blu-Ray)

Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (Blu-Ray).

Thats my list for the month of October, I will say that before I sat down to make this list I watched Creepshow and Nightbreed, as they were two movies I haven’t seen before and were also horror movies.

 

I’ll report back here in November with what I did end up watching and if I completed the list, maybe the list and more!

 

Also if you have any recommendations for horror movies, I am always all ears!

Stay Spooked!
