Yep, I’m doing it again this year. I had so much fun last October that a) I actually watched some horror movies in a non-Halloween-adjacent setting and b) I decided that it would 100% be worth doing a second time. Hell, it may become a yearly thing? Who knows? Plus, I’m needing a nice way to wind down after a long day of nursing school, and although you might think that horror movies aren’t necessarily the way to do this? Well, I apparently only get nightmares about giant, floating orbs surrounded by a sea of literal nothingness and occasionally threats that I’m still married.

Just as a recap, last year, I watched these movies, in no particular order:

  • The Conjuring
  • The Conjuring 2
  • Evil Dead
  • Evil Dead 2
  • Night of the Living Dead
  • Dawn of the Dead *
  • Day of the Dead
  • Phantasm
  • The Haunting
  • Vampire Hunter D (1985)
  • Poltergeist
  • Bone Tomahawk *
  • Masque of the Red Death
  • Colour Out of Space *
  • Mandy *
  • Blair Witch Project

My plan initially was to watch a horror movie each night, but LOL school and work prevented that from happening. I’m still in school, obviously, but I think that I can get at least three during the week and a double feature on Saturday? Which comes out to about 24 movies? I may be acting overly ambitious here, but we shall see. I’ll be doing live viewings on Twitter, so just follow me over there and feel free to join in on #Horrorpalooza2021!

But here’s the paltry list I have so far. Feel free to leave me suggestions (except body horror, I have no interest in that, thanks)!

  • Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
  • Willy’s Wonderland
  • Peeping Tom
  • Audition
  • [REC]
  • Invasion of the Body Snatchers
  • The Host

* These were my favorites from #Horrorpalooza2020, and if you haven’t seen them, you totally should.
