Starting the Halloween Countdown early
As you can see at the top of the sidebar when you visit the blog, I'm participating in the annual Countdown to Halloween again this year. It officially kicks off on October 1 and I've got what I hope will be a fun feature planned for it, but... I'm antsy to start celebrating now.
One of the things I do every year around this time is marathon my way through a series of horror movies. This year, I'm working my way through the super-cheap 50 Horror Classics DVD set that I picked up several years ago, but have never watched front-to-back. As you can see from the cover above, there's a wide range in quality from the masterpiece Nosferatu all the way down to The Killer Shrews. I figured it would be fun to talk briefly about each film as I see it, so starting tomorrow, that's what I'll be doing. In order to finish on Halloween, I'll have to hit a couple of movies the first two days, but starting Monday we'll do a film a day until October 31.
Also starting tomorrow, I've got a fun, comics-related feature planned that will help us count down, but I'll let it introduce itself. Then on October 1, I'll start what I had planned for the Official Countdown to Halloween. It's similar to what I did last year.
That makes three spooky features to help get us excited for the big day. I'll also try to keep up with Song of the Week and Everyone Hates Cephalopods, but other than that, Halloween's taking over the blog for the next month-and-a-half. Hope you're ready!
