Horror Movie Month

Somewhere along the way we started watching a lot of horror movies in October. It started with shows that were suitable for adding some fun to The Kids' preparations for Hallowe'en, and the tradition grew through the years. Now I try to see a few I've never seen before. This is the list we have so far. I'm trying to update code for films where the embed code I used no longer works. I'm surprised at how often public domain films disappear from one place and have to be relocated somewhere else. If I've written a blog post about a particular film, that post is linked below:

  1. I watched The Loved Ones last night an Australian film from 2012. Though it is really more of a slasher film I would recommend it. The movie wasn't great but something about it just sucked me in. Kind of reminded me of a John Carpenter movie.
