    Our favorite month for horror begins today, and with that comes several new enhancements to the site that we'll be rolling out throughout the month. If you refresh your browser, you'll notice an overhaul of all the graphics. The big thing - a name change! Yes, we've been HorrorDVDs.com for almost 10 years now, and we'll continue to be so for another 10, but with Blu-ray, Dave's continuing addiction to Laserdisc and my aspirations of tackling a number of VHS tapes in hopes of getting more lost films on DVD, we've decided to diversify. You'll notice our first new review for October Madness is A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET on Blu-ray, so to celebrate our jump to HD, we setup HorrorHiDef.com.

    We like the format specific URLs, they give us a lot of traffic here, but we want something that's further reaching. Something more general, and something that encapsulates the depth that this site has, with all the topics covered in our forms, our commitments to other formats and our huge community here in binary. What better, then, than HorrorDigital.com?

    HORROR DIGITAL. That's the new name - and we're sticking to it! We've got big plans for this site, and our size is always growing, and it's our hope that HORROR DIGITAL will allow us to grow for years to come.

    Enough about the future though - let's talk about the present; let's talk about October Madness! We've got a great month lined up for all of you here at the site. Since you've already sifted through a bunch of paragraphs, let's give it to you point form. Here's what to expect this month:

    • A new review every day for the 31 days of October
    • Four contests that start every Sunday
    • Four polls that start every Wednesday
    • Four Top Ten lists that start every Friday
    • Live chats supported on the site
    • A bunch of special events to unfold on Halloween night
    • Some other surprises we haven't sorted out yet

    It's going to be a crazy month. Get ready to eat, drink and breathe horror, and make sure to post about it all on the site. Enjoy yourself this month, take in the glorious genre that has brought us all here for 9 years. This month is our gift to you for all your support, enjoy it, and have a bloody good time!

    Whoa, big news!

    We knew October would be big, but a name change? Craziness.

    This month sounds like another banner October. Here's to many more.

    If you can find me a few more reviewers who can take all these screeners off my desk, then yes. ;)

    I fucking love October!!! I also love the new name and the promise of more surprises. This is my favorite forum in the world, and I want to celebrate it all month, along with some great movie watching. It's been over 8 years I've been a member and I've learned lots about horror just by being here.

    Nice! Didn't expect such a big change as the name of the site, but it makes sense. And I'm also hyped that you guys are not only doing your 31 reviews (Thought I read a week ago, that you didn't think you'd be able to do that many this year?), but that you are once again doing the top 10 lists! Those are always must reads, and I usually end up buying a movie or two from them. I am pumped!
