Yup. It’s that time of year again…the time when I spend inordinate amounts of time watching horror movies and generally reveling in all things autumnal. Yup, when October rolls around, it means two things:
1. Horror movies on the TV…and lots of ’em. This year I’ll again be participating in the October Horror Movie Challenge at the DVDTalk.com forum. This is my third straight year to participate, and I’m more amped-up than ever for some horror movie goodness. I explained all about the OHMC last year about this time, so if you don’t know what I’m talking about and want to find out more, just scroll down until you find the post from September 26th, 2011, and read all about it. (You could also go to the September 2011 Archives button in the navigation panel on the left, but that would take away all the fun of scrolling ’til your pointer finger aches.) If YOU’D like to join in on the OHMC, just click on the words “DVDTalk.com forum” in the second sentence of this paragraph, and through the magic of hyperlinking, you’ll be taken to the main page for the challenge, where you can find out what to do. As I did last year, I’ll be reposting some of my reviews from the OHMC challenge here, so you’ll be kept abreast of the good, the bad, and the fugly of what I watch. So, stay tuned to this space for updates, starting October 1st.
2. A celebration of all things Halloween. Again, like last year, I’ll be participating in the Halloween Countdown. In case you missed it last year, you can use the navi links to the left or scroll down until you find my blog entry from September 28th, 2011, where the concept of the Halloween Countdown is outlined. It’s easiest to think of it as a big cyber-neighborhood where you can go trick-or-treating at all the various websites…except that everyone’s porch light is on and they won’t be giving lame candy like peppermints or those chewy things wrapped in waxy orange and black paper. If you’d like to join in on the fun, just go here to add your site to the list. If you want to go trick-or-treating, there are dozens of links at the Countdown to Halloween site so that you won’t EVER be bored this October.
So, check back here periodically during October for movie reviews and something new this year–I’ll be adding some of my Halloween finds from the supermarkets and thrift stores regularly. It’s gonna be fun!!
