    Default 31 Days (and nights) of Halloween, 2019!



    Once more, the time is at hand!

    Here are the rules, if you disobey them, no one knows what might happen.

    1. The Number of the Beast is 31: The goal, as always, is view at least 31 films between October 1 and October 31. Few make it all the way to31 on their first year, but all are encouraged to try. to add their names to the elite Brethren of the Night. While a film per day is encouraged, double and triple-billing (or more) is perfectly acceptable and often necessary.

    2. Medium Be Damned: The movies shall not be just theatrical. TV, Cable, DVD/VHS and Streaming movies shall be legal tender as well. So view to your black heart's content, even on your phone, yea accursed Millennials.

    3. Leave A Trail: Please provide an IMDB or Wikipedia link of all the films you view. This will allow the others the chance to add to their watchlists for later or just to compare progress. Feel free to also add poster art and/or trailers as well to add color to your post. And of course your own thoughts on film would be nice to hear...before the end.

    4. Simpsons Can't Do It: Halloween-themed episodes of a regular series don't count. Nor do episodes of macabre-themed shows like Buffy, Supernatural, American Horror Story. (If you plan on binging through an entire season of something, that can probably count provided there's a general sense of agreement)

    5. Definitions Aren't Strict: It doesn't have to be an actual 'horror movie', per say. Comedies and action flicks with macabre themes are perfectly acceptable; Hocus Pocus, Blade, Repossessed, etc... (I'm sure a lot of people plan on seeing Joker. That definitely counts. Hell, we counted Venom last year).


    Here is a listing of many of the movies available on TV and streaming in October.
    And here's 10 free films on YouTube.

    Here is last year's endeavor.

    Well, as ever, I won't manage 31, but I will do my best.

    Maybe I should make a list this year, and see how that works. I normally just wing it.

    What helped for me last year was that I put more than 31 movies on my Netflix and Amazon queue a couple days before, and then whatever I was going to watch, I made sure it was something already on the list rather than browsing aimlessly. Plus I'd occasionally come across something airing on TV and I went to a movie or two. But I didn't keep adding the list. I don't think I even went to my DVD/blu ray collection for anything, when that's usually my backup.

    Well, I should be clear in that 31 movies in 31 days is never an actual goal for me. I just watch Halloween-esque movies all month.

    I made a list of 31 films in my collection last night, then put it in alphabetical order, so I'm ready to give this challenge a shot!
