Halloween Horror Movie Challenge Day Twenty-Five And Happy Halloween

Posted on

Happy Halloween everyone!! I hope everyone has a great and fun one whether you’re going out or staying in watching movies. So many options. Though I do have one I always watch. Hence, the last post for the Halloween Horror Movie Challenge. Day Twenty-Five – What is a horror movie you watch every Halloween? HALLOWEEN (1978) d: John Carpenter This one may be on the nose and even obvious but it is my yearly tradition. Every Halloween for the last 14 years (sporadic before that but almost for even ten years prior to that) I watch John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN. I always end the night with it. So I start watching it between 11pm and midnight so it rings out the holiday for me. For the record there was one year in the last 14 that I didn’t watch it but only because I got to see it on the big […]

This past week I was a guest on the BladtCast podcast talking Halloween and horror movies (which you can listen to HERE) and one of the things that came up was this question so it fits perfectly for the Halloween Horror Movie Challenge. Day Twenty-One – What is a film you really like but is hard to recommend to someone else? A SERBIAN FILM (2010) d: Srdjan Spasojevic This is one of those films that in some ways is really an amazing film but I can’t recommend that anyone watch it. Unless I know for sure you can handle it. I first saw this on the big screen at a rare screening (at a really great Horror Society event) at like 2am and it was unlike anything I had seen. A very in your face film that is as graphic as a film can be in its depiction of violence. […]
