All Hallows Help


September is fast waning, despite the summery weather, and October looms. And that means Halloween is on its way.

In years past, I have embarked on the blood-spattered journey of watching a horror movie a day in the month of October, something I like to call my Month of Madness.

In 2004, I just had fun. In 2005, I nearly drove myself crazy trying to write and balance my schoolwork, but I somehow crossed the finish line.

So this year, I need you to help me get organized. I need suggestions. I need ideas for movies that I haven’t seen a gazillion times.


I need to get a plan now, so that I will have a store of films ready for the watching, and my schoolwork won’t suffer from my scrambling around to find something. I’m thinking of setting a theme for each week in the month, and watching films related to that theme. What do you think, oh wise friends? I need your advice. If so inclined, post a comment with your thoughts on:

  • film titles for me to hunt down – as I said at the end of 2005’s project, I need to get outside of my own preferences a little bit and expand my horizons
  • suggestions for weekly themes – like all Tobe Hooper, or all zombies
  • and

  • ideas for the Grand Finale marathon on the 31st
  • I’d love to hear what my horrorlicious friends would want to see. So help a girl out and I’ll share my candy with you.



    1. Paul says:

      I think a week devoted to a certain iteration of sequels (ie, the 5th in any series) could be interestful.

    2. Super fun idea, Paul. I’m Mclovin it, as the kids say.

      So, Halloween V, Friday the 13th V, Rocky V…oh wait.

    3. Make no mistake, Rocky V is a horror film. McLovin said so.
