31 Horror Films in October (the 2012 edition)

I’ve only recently started doing this in the last 4 or 5 years. Last year I blew it, barely got to 15. Shameful. But I don’t feel super bad about that because I had work to do. The good kind.

2012 was the year I had nothing at all going on. Lots of flatting, lots of being broke, thus lots of time spent sitting at my desk with movies to keep me motivated to keep working. That was the October I watched 70 horror films in a month (69 1/2 technically, since I shut off POLTERGEIST 2 about 30 minutes into it).

I’ve kept this list to myself, because of lots of reasons (upon reviewing this list last year, I described it to a friend as my version of Charles Crumb’s comics when he was in the midst of going full-tilt insane), but enough time has passed and it’s October again, so why not share my illness with the internet? These are the films I watched, in the order I watched them.

(One note: I wasn’t able to watch subtitled films because I watched most of these while working, so my whole plan to visit the new french extremists was not an option this go-round).
