Writing and Reviews – Denise Pasutti
Trying to come up with a clever name for my lead up to Halloween blog posts and this is what my tired mind produced: Halloween Dawning. Because Halloween is dawning and you know, Dawning Creates….Kind of lame, I know but I’m rusty. Anyway, I have a list of movies and shows I intend to watch and review over the next 36 days until Halloween. Only 36 days to go! It’s an ambitious goal to watch even part of it and I do have Shadow of the Tomb Raider to play but I have extra time off this year and I don’t sleep much anyway, so more time to indulge in horror. Here are my intended for the lead up to Halloween. Boo!
Castle Rock: Almost finished, a couple more episodes to go.
The Blackcoat’s Daughter – Been on my list for a while.
House of the Devil – One of several re-watches this season. It’s been awhile and I like the vibe of it.
Happy Death Day – Not usually my type of movie but it looks kind of fun.
Hereditary – Very much on the fence about this one. Might to be too out there for me but we’ll see.
Spring – Older movie that I saw a trailer for after watching the trailer for the next movie…
The Endless – Looks intriguing and along the lines of Adam Nevill’s ‘Last Days’.
Patient Zero – Zombie flick not available to October 23; cutting it close but I’m looking forward to it.
The Witch – Another re-watch because I couldn’t follow it the first time. No drinking this time around.
The Quiet Place – Again, on the fence. The premise reminds of the novel ‘The Silence’ by Tim Lebbon.
Ghoul – Netflix series set in a prison camp and weird shit happens with an odd prisoner.
Skeleton Key – Been a long time since seeing this one but it has the Southern vibe to go with rereading ‘The Witching Hour’ by Anne Rice.
The Houses October Built – This may become a Halloween staple for me. For some reason I really like it.
Annabell Creation – Hey, why not. Dolls are just as creepy as clowns.
Hemlock Grove – So cheesy but I didn’t finish the second or third season and Bill Skarsgård.
Winchester – Low expectations but hopefully some good jump scares.
The Vault – Not too sure what to expect but curious about the horror side of this heist flick.
Strigoi – Watched a trailer for this older flick. Looks like a good horror comedy.
Delirium – A psychological thriller. I’ll give it a go.
Halloween (1978) – Well, of course. It’s been a couple of years and it is the classic for the season.
Halloween (2018) – Lots of good buzz for this one. Really looking forward to it.
A Nightmare on Elm Street – Another classic re-watch.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre – I will shamefully admit that I have never seen this movie. I struggle to watch this type of violence in horror movies which is why I have put it off. Maybe this year I will finally watch it.
