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’s 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

October of Horror #4: Fright Night (1985)

October of Horror #5: The Night Stalker (1972)

October of Horror #6: Warlock (1989)

October of Horror #7: Return of the Living Dead III (1993)

October of Horror #8: Evils of the Night (1985)

October of Horror #9: Infection (2004)

October of Horror #10: Pinocchio’s Revenge (1996)

October of Horror #11: The Darkest Hour (2011)

October of Horror #12: Zombieland (2009)

October of Horror #13: Killer! (1989)

October of Horror #14: The Beyond (1981)

October of Horror #15: Slaughterhouse Rock (1988)
