October: The Month of Horror!

Those of you who are too oblivious to know which day of the month it is, I'll enlighten you: it's currently October 1st! That means we've entered the month of Halloween and thus, the month of horror. This year's line-up of horror movies in October seems a bit underwhelming compared to last year's which included Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, Grudge 2, and Saw III. In today's day and age, it's almost a guarantee that no critic will like any mainstream horror, whether it's Hostel: Part II, 1408, or anything else, so with that the writers of the internet domain are instead talking about all the other great horror that won't be in theaters this month.

We'll of course be bringing you a number of horror features throughout October here at FS.net, but honestly we don't want to swamp you with nothing but horror. Look at this month, the big horror films hitting theaters include: 30 Days of Night (pictured above), Saw IV, and The Signal. Until those arrive, which isn't until the later half of the month, here's a few links to preoccupy those of you who are thirsty for all things horror.

First up, Cinematical / Moviefone has 31 Days of Horror, where they're counting down the 31 great horror films ever.

Next up, The Projection Booth is hosting a 31 Days Of Zombie blog-a-thon to celebrate this joyous month of zombies! Who doesn't love freshly killed human flesh?!

And lastly, a special one for all of you old time horror fans. This Distracted Globe is has 31 Days of Hitchcock where they'll be featuring a new Hitchcock movie ever day.

Thanks to the guys over at Lazy Eye Theatre for the last two links. October is always an exciting month, it's when last year's Best Picture winner hit theaters, and it's the month where all the creeps come out of hiding and flock to theaters to see some great horror movies.

I won't deny that I'm incredibly excited for 30 Days of Night, which looks like it may be the best vampire movie yet (go watch this R-rated trailer and you might agree). And yes it's a guilty pleasure, but I love the Saw series and I'm excited as hell to continue to watch Jigsaw's maniacal games in Saw IV. I love October, it's full of so many great movies and I can't wait to get started. So without further ado, let the month of horror begin!
