Yep blog mascot Veronica Lake is ushering in this year’s Halloween offerings. I’m really excited to do Halloween this year. I blogged about it on my personal Facebook page last year (and by “blogged” I mean made a photo album with mini-reviews serving as captions) so I’m happy to get more eyeballs on this site and discover new films. I did a call for suggestions and took a couple, sorry I couldn’t please everyone but thanks to all who offered suggestions.
Click below to discover what’s going to happen in October and which films are going to be reviewed! I’ve included dates of when reviews should go up (fingers crossed I’ll be on time) so you can get the films as well!
Before I unveil the list a few things: There will be a Journeys in the Disney Vault, you should see what it is from the list below, and I have a Halloween themed edition of Old Hollywood Book Reviews! On the Monday of the book review I’ll also include a film review so you don’t miss out on all 31 Days.
I did want to do a small subsection devoted to killer kids so you’ll notice quite a few films devoted to tiny terrors. I also have a weekend of William Castle directed films and I’m hoping to see the Frankenstein double feature but if I don’t make it out I’ll do a double feature review.
I’ve tried to do every decade, every genre, and a few foreign films to truly make this diverse! Here’s hoping your all excited!
