A Premature End to October of Horror

Posted by Trixter on October 30, 2018

I am taking on a contract programming job with a deadline this week, so I’m afraid my horror movie indulgence must come to an end.¬† It’s unlikely I would have made 31 movies by the 31st anyway, but I’m happy with the 25 I managed to cram in.¬† I found some new favorites like Return of the Living Dead III, and had some recommendations validated such as The Night Stalker and Fright Night.¬† Most of them were duds, but it was worth going through them to find the diamonds in the rough, such as Killer! and — who would have thought?! — Pinocchio‚Äôs Revenge.

Here’s the complete list of movies I was able to cram in:

October of Horror #1: The Visitor (1979)

October of Horror #2: A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)

October of Horror #3: Return of the Living Dead II
