in which I do #horrorpalooza2022 …

So #Horrorpalooza2021 was a bust last year. I did really well the first week, but then school and mental health happened, which required me to have a complete shutdown naturally. Here’s what I watched:

  • Them!
  • Audition
  • Hausu/House
  • Willy’s Wonderland
  • An American Werewolf in London
  • Drag Me to Hell
  • Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust

I think my two favorites were Willy’s Wonderland and Them!, although after watching Hausu/House a few more times, it became a lot more fun for me. I spent most of my time being annoyed by Drag Me to Hell‘s protagonist, and An American Werewolf in London was enjoyable but such a damn downer. Audition was absolutely disgusting once it finally got moving, but Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust was just as beautiful and epic as I remembered it.

I’ve watched a few of the movies I had scheduled for last year (What We Do in the Shadows and Parasite, more specifically), so I’m going to have to come up with a few new ones. Plus, I’m not in schoooooooooooool! It’s a strange place to be, after spending all of my time for the last 16 months doing nothing but nursing school shit, but it just means I can go all out doing this for 2022.

Anyway, here are some of the movies I’m wanting to watch over the course of October:

  • The Fog
  • 28 Days Later
  • Insidious
  • My Bloody Valentine (1981)
  • Dr. Sleep
  • 30 Days of Night
  • The Return of the Living Dead
  • The Descent
  • Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)
  • Nightmare on Elm Street
  • Scream
  • [REC]
  • Cam
  • Jennifer’s Body
  • Slither
  • The Strangers
  • Night of the Comet
  • The Host

I have not seen any of these movies ever, even as an almost 39-year-old adult, so I think this will be an … interesting experience, especially since so many of these movies were pretty formative for a lot of people. I’m also looking into foreign language horror movies, too, and I will gladly accept any suggestions. So feel free to comment below or contact me using the link at the top of the page.
