The 2018 Halloween Marathon is upon us. It definitely came by quickly enough.
Halloween Marathon has been always an exciting month in the year over here. This year’s horror movies have been quite limited so its going to be an adventure to work on getting rid of some of the movies in My List on Netflix as well as some movies on our shelves that we’ve bought but never seen. We are in the phase of decluttering and trading in our films is one of the phases we are working on. I do have a lot of horror movies to catch up on and with the Netflix October movie releases and other bits here and there with books and hopefully some cooking as well, its going to be a ton of stuff happening and with a decent variety if things go as planned.
Reviews currently being scheduled and writing in progress:
- The Babysitter (2017)
- Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2017)
- Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments (Season 1 & 2)
Some of my top picks:
- The Babadook (because it seems like I’m the only person in the universe that hasn’t seen it yet)
- Bone Tomahawk
- Green Room
- Gantz: 0
- The Visit
- What We Do in the Shadows
- Sharknado: The 4th Awakens
- Sharknado 5: Global Swarming
TV SERIES (These picks are priority because I want to wrap up the show as they are already done)
- Scream Queens (Season 2)
- Hemlock Grove (Season 3)
- Ash vs Evil Dead (Season 2)
The Maybe List (if I’m in a mood and none of the top picks fit my liking or I want to watch a dumb horror):
- The Forest
- It Comes at Night
- The Open House
Obviously, the list above is all subject to change and its on what I decide to pick. However, I’m open to any suggestions! If there’s any movie that you want me to review on this list, just leave it in the comments or tweet or email or whatnot and I’ll make sure to bump up the priority.
Also, as I mentioned before, books will be included in there. I’ve currently started one already so we will be having 2 or 3 hopefully pop up over the month.
On top of the normal programming from movies definitely making it in and others in consideration above, Elwood and I are kicking off Movies & Tea Podcast’s season 2 with our look at Guillermo Del Toro’s directorial effort. With that said, there is a lot of horror movies coming out from there. I’d say that we might get through a movie or two in October if things go as it did in the first season of the show.
Before I wrap this announcements and start the Halloween Marathon out of the gates here, I do want to say that I have a last minute decision of attending the Festival du Nouveau Cinema in Montreal so I’ll be covering up to 10 films there. However, none of those films will be horror, or at least from what I think. So, there will be other things going on here. If the marathon takes a little slide in the background, the second half of October will be in full force. You just need to be patient with me as I work through real life, festival coverage and Halloween marathon.
That’s it for this morning’s announcement!
We officially start tomorrow morning with a movie review! 🙂
