I know it's not October yet...

A few years back, the website formerly known as About.com put out an article titled "31 Days of Horror Movies." It was an article made up of 31 different articles and, altogether, it comprises a different theme each day with several suggestions of movies to watch within that theme. Maybe this'll guide you through new ideas on how to line-up your October viewing. This list features my pre-selections for the month, along with a few of the suggestions from the original articles to give you some options.

If you are interested in reading the article in its entirety, here is the link: www.about.com/entertainment/topic/horror-movies-halloween
*Note that some of the links to the "original" articles may be different than what they claim to be, but you should still be able to find something terrifying.*
