Pre-October/Halloween Movie Talk and Plans

I've been saving new Horror blu-rays I bought since August for my October viewings. 19 titles so far, but more will be added.

Can't hardly wait! It's my favorite month of the year

Other than that we've planned a small get together at my sisters place on Halloween, for dinner. We'll be doing a "haunted car-ride" in the early evening visiting abandoned houses and at least one old creepy-ass graveyard in rural locations. We haven't done that in ages so it should be fun. What are your plans?

I've been building up a Halloween watch pile.

Stuff like Hauntedween, Trilogy of Terror, Hell Night, Fade to Black etc. Basically stuff I didn't watch last year.

That's awesome! Take some pics.

Well, I'm sure you're not shocked, but I will be at Phish shows in Atlantic City dressed as Osiris - Egyptian King of the Dead.

Other than that, yes, I'm looking forward to catching up on some newly bought horror purchased over the past year. This past Summer I slacked due to so much travel.

I've recently browsed through the horror section on Netflix instant que looking to start my list, and I've compiled about 40 or so films that will be first time viewings. Hopefully there won't be any freak hurricanes this year (I lost power last year on the evening of the 29th) and I can actually enjoy the month in its entirety.

As usual I will be watching a stack of horror movies. Don't think I'll break my record of 70 movies / 25 episodes, I doubt I'll even come close to last years 55 movies / 6 Episodes due to our now 1 year old son, but I will sure as hell try! For our podcast we will also be doing a weekly special and hopefully come up with ways to make each episode a little special for the month.

My family and I will also do the traditional pumpkin patch / carving, costume creation, parties, ect.

I can't wait either way! I love Christmas, but I think Halloween and October are truly my favourite time of the year!

This thread has reminded me to start going through my movies and pulling out a bunch to watch.

Another Disney animated film and review warm-up, which I'll be starting a lot earlier this year (I wound up trying to cram 20 or thereabouts in 4 days... not a good plan) so I'll have time to stock up on my Tour-of-YouTube horror flicks. I might think the quality is about on-par with the old VHS's they're ripped from.

But in the core of October, I'm watching all the post-60's classics. I'd like to get a better version of Night of the Living Dead (the Millennium Edition, if it's still available) so I could start in the 60's. And eventually, the not-so-classics.

Is Horrordigital going to do its big October/Halloween review month? It's pretty much the only time in the year that new reviews get posted up. That's what I'll be looking forward too.

Already been watching horror films quite regularly as the weather here has been quite Halloween-like lately, Fall is definitely in the air.
Watched The Fog with commentary and Insidious last night.
No special plans for October however I am setting some money aside for some blu-rays I want to get namely Rosemary's Baby, The Uninvited and Prince Of Darkness.
Hopefully a release date for The Conjuring will be announced soon.

Yes, us too our decorations are out already. We watched House by the Cemetary last. We have a couple of parties in Rocktober. One at a club and one house party. I got a bunch of Paul Naschy films in queue.

Decorate & (hopefully) upgrade yard haunt.

Set up zombie tank and marathon The Walking Dead seasons 1 - 3.

Rifftrax Live is doing Night of the Living Dead '68 this year.

Watch lots of movies, including the Carrie remake, Mandy Lane (finally!), and Curse of Chucky.

Sounds awesome.

Usually, I'm pretty much solo in my October viewings, as none of my friends are that into horror films. But I made a new friend last year (a rarity at age 34!), who is totally into them, so we are gonna set up a few double-features. He hasn't seen Plan 9 or Ed Wood, and that's my favorite back-to-back viewing, so that will certainly be on the list.

He's also never seen The Monster Squad, so that's in there, too, although it's a staple at my place in October.

Hmmm.....I should re-order my Netflix queue. Move some of the horror titles to the top.

I don't have anything specific planned, but I do know I'll watch quite a bit of horror just 'cause it's tis the season (yes, I borrowed from The Waitresses' Christmas song there). I recently picked up a new scaler/de-interlacer on the cheap, so I might try dusting off some laserdiscs. I still have a bunch of Hammer films from Elite on that old 12" format, the Roger Corman Price/Poe movies, and some other random titles I haven't watched since going HD.
