The Month in Movies: Shocktober 2013

shocktober

My friends and I have been dedicating the month of October to the horror genre and calling it Shocktober for several years now.  I started this blog in February and from the start I was excited about sharing my Shocktober experience with anyone and everyone.

I have been saying for a while that this year has to make up for last year’s abysmal performance. I had it in my mind that I barely watched anything last year. As it turns out, I was 27 movies last year. Not all of them were Shocktober movies, but I had been working under the assumption that I had maybe 10 or 11 viewings total last year.

It’s all for the best because this year was the second best Shocktober I’ve ever had. While I didn’t beat my record of 57 viewings in 2011, I did come close with a very respectable 52 viewings. I’m also proud to say that only 3 of those viewings weren’t Shocktober movies. Continue reading

4 Days of Blood: Part IV – Ghoulish Netflix Instant Recommendations

grave-encounters-movie-ghost-screaming

Seeing as Halloween is now upon us and I’ve committed myself to writing four “Days of Blood” posts, I figured I would devote the fourth and final post to some of the better (and more recent) horror and horror-adjacent titles available to stream on Netflix. Hopefully it will make up for the way I’ve been neglecting my Streaming Saturday recommendations this month.

Before I get started, though, I want to thank everyone for indulging me as I let my horror fandom take control of the blog and the podcast. I’d also like to thank my friends Mike (@IAmMikeWhite) and Tiny (@ObsessiveTiny) for contributing so much content this month. I’d also like to thank my friend Pat (@Patty_Kuhn) for joining us on the Zombie episode of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast.

Finally, I would like to thank John Dugan from The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974), Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1994) and Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013) for letting us interview him on the podcast. We had such a great time talking to him and can’t thank him enough. If you’re ever at a convention and have a chance to meet him, I highly recommend it.

So let’s get to the list, shall we? It’s Halloween, so here are some streaming recommendations to make the holiday even better. Continue reading
