Halloween Horror Marathon!

I confess that I am a mega scaredy cat and throughout the year, horror flicks are usually less frequent.

When October comes around, its a full month dedicated to horror and one where it includes a lot of sleepless nights (when the movies are done well) and also a month of discovering various subgenres in the Horror genre. I also have found out through these that paranormal horror flicks are the ones that usually impact me the most.

After quitting for a few years, I slowly got back into horror starting in 2012 🙂
