The October Horror Project | 2016 Edition

October 13, 2016 |  photo comment-icon3_zpsdfxrj5h7.png
Tough I haven't posted regularly (what else is new) I have been watching movies and reading various books, so why not embark on a new edition of the October Horror Project? For a couple of years I've done horror-related viewings this time of the year, tackling some of the best horror movies I had yet to see. It's a genre I love but surprisingly, I'm missing a lot of classics! This year I'm adding books to the mix, since I'm even more behind in that department.

The plan is to watch and read as many of these as I can. I've already seen A Tale of Two Sisters (WHY do I torture myself with scary movies) and Shaun of the Dead (sort of a rewatch, I couldn't remember much), and started reading Stephen King's The Shinning. Feel free to join in with these or your own picks!
