    1. Watch 13 Scary/Horror/Halloween-Themed films, etc. from midnight October 1, 2019 through on October 31, 2019 (use your own time zone to set the ending time).

    2. Theatrically released films and short features count as 1 point each. Running times are irrelevant. TV specials (e.g. "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!") and individual episodes of anthology TV series (e.g. "The Twilight Zone") also count as 1 point each. For episodic TV series, 2 hour-long episodes (e.g. "The Walking Dead") count as 1 point and 3 episodes of 30 minute-long episodes (e.g. "The Munsters") count as 1 point.

    3. Two of the 13 films, et. al. must be new discoveries, movies you've never seen before. The point of this is to see those few movies you've always meant to see, but never got around to. Please specify new discoveries in your film list by making them bold, adding asterisks, different colors, etc.

    4. Come here and talk about 'em.

    5. There is an uber-category, the Ultimate Splatter Challenge for those who wish to put all of the rest of us to shame. This is the heavyweight division. These people, if they choose to accept the challenge, must view 31 horror/scary/Halloween themed movies before dawn on Nov. 1st. Ten new discoveries are recommended for this one. The rest of us will bow down in awed reverence to these truly "Splatterific" HTF members. The bragging rights will be awesome and long lived.6. What movies qualify? If you wanna include it, go for it. There will be no hairsplitting. If The Wizard of Oz sends you to the dresser for a fresh pair of boxer shorts, all the power.At the end of the challenge, the totals will be added up based on the point system outlined in number 2 above.

    Reserve your spot below!

    I'm in to find some gems I might not have seen before! Not worried about my totals this years as I will be gone the first extended weekend for a wedding. But it's always fun!

    I also like this October ritual because I am hoping to hear about or see some pictures I've never seen. I'll be playing and reading along but my personal goal will be to see just one horror related film or show a day throughout the month.

    I have not yet mapped my entire month and I was sort of trying to see if I could come up with a theme but for now these are some trailers for films I will screen for the first time in October:

    The Dead Center



    Midsommar



    Pay the Ghost



    Get Out



    The Curse of La Llorona

    I'm still trying to figure out if the above has any connection to Demon Wind? Remake? No connection beyond similar titles?

    I have not seen Demon Wind but The Wind is a horror film set in the old west. So, I doubt there is any connection.


    Of course there is also Passing Wind: The Antonio Brown Story which I hear is pretty horrifying as well.
