31 Days of Halloween Film Challenge

Last year, I challenged myself to watch a new set of Halloween classics. Without neglecting my favorites, I made a real effort to get to those films that had been "on my list" for some time. This year, I'm doing it again.

So join me in my newest viewing adventure! Let me know what you're watching this October and suggest films for me along the way. I love to conversate--especially about movies! (And Halloween, of course. Duh.)

Note: there will be repeats. Because some films you just have to watch every. fucking. year. Cheers!
Update: I decided to not repeat any films from last year. But it's getting hard! I'm jonesing for some of my regular annuals...

October 3rd: Supernatural: Season 8 marathon [netflix] [amazon] [imdb]
October 4th: Mama (2013) [amazon] [imdb] Okay, so I'm cheating here. But I went to Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights last night after work. No time to watch anything! However, I just watched Mama last month and it was on my list for this year. So it totally counts.

So did you succeed?

I think so ;) Fit it most (if not all) of my regulars while adding in a load of new ones.

Of course, I started watching "Halloween" flicks well before Oct. 1st, so some don't even show up on here!

So many awesome and utterly scary pics on your list, fitting for the up coming Halloween season. My favorite movie of course is john carpenter's Halloween, which you have listed as a bonus. Apparently, you had included it on a previous list, I don't know. But that would be first on mine for sure. Great blog BTW and thanks for following me on twitter.
