October has arrived, which means that it is time for my yearly marathon of horror films, which over the last few years I have been dubbing simply October Horror Fest. From now until Halloween, I will watch as many horror films as I can. Since I take a hiatus mid-month for Toronto After Dark, I usually end up watching about a dozen films, though I hope to go past twenty this year. I typically only count the films I watch at home, though I also see quite a few theatrical horror offerings in October, which this year includes a Wes Craven retrospective at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.
Something I am doing new this year is running down some of the films that I plan to watch over the course of the month. I have a shortlist of 25 films prepared and I hope to see at least half of them, though it would also be nice if I could squeeze them all in.
Without further ado, here is my planned October Horror Fest line-up!
