Horror, as a genre, is probably the most limitless. Fear really can be anywhere at anyplace with anything. Ever since I was a child, I was drawn to horror films. Slashers especially. It mostly had to do with how many sequels many of these films had. Such as the likes of Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Friday the 13th. Where horror films can be equally as nonsensical, if they are not scary. I mean, it took only nine installments to take Jason to outer space. Was the plot of Halloween too simple for you? Why don’t we throw in a cult and Paul Rudd to make things a bit more convoluted? The point being, the genre is great; no matter if you want serious or droll entertainment.
That is why, I have decided to take part in Cinemonster’s annual Hoop-Tober marathon. Where, you create a list of horror movies to watch, following the rules stated in Cinemonster’s original list. Then finally, starting on September 15th, you have until Halloween to watch all the films on your list. My list includes pretty much all films I have not seen yet, with the exception of: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), Halloween II (1981), Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982), and Evil Dead II (1987). I will write about every single film on my list, but those four will be much more retrospective compared to the other 31 movies on the list. And, some of the four may even be added to my “Great Films List”. All reviews to the movies will be listed on this page so it shouldn’t be much trouble to find all of them since they are all organized in this document. So, with that being said, let the marathon begin!
