In a bid to keep myself accountable in my creative pursuits whilst in nursing school, I’m going to make myself some additional challenges. Naturally, school does have to come first, so I may have to fudge some things, but my plan is to watch at least one horror movie per day throughout the entire month of October – with Saturdays being my double feature days – at around 8:00P (2000, for you military time people). Mondays and Thursdays will probably end up being a little earlier than that, due to clinicals, but whatever.
But anyway, this first week of the month is only two days long, so I’m just going to include the following week here:
- Oct 1: Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
- Oct 2: DOUBLE FEATURE – Audition and Hausu/House
- Oct 3: Willy’s Wonderland
- Oct 4: American Werewolf in London
- Oct 5: Them!
- Oct 6: Drag Me to Hell
- Oct 7: Jennifer’s Body
- Oct 8: The Descent
- Oct 9: DOUBLE FEATURE – Dawn of the Dead (Snyder) / Army of the Dead
My double feature days have two themes: the first is Japanese horror, which apparently is way creepier than Western horror (I’ve never seen the original Japanese Ringu, so I don’t know how it compares to The Ring), and the second is Zack Snyder, which is a director I’ve tried to steer clear of for many reasons. I hated his Justice League take, and most of the other movies he’s made are just … blah? But I’ve heard good things about his horror movies, so I’m going to give him a chance there.
Don’t disappoint me, Snyder (like you care).
Now, I’ve never seen any of these movies, but this looks like a shit ton of fun based on reviews I’ve read. I’ll be live-tweeting as I watch, too, so please join me as I try to scare myself!
