October is Prime Time for Horror

In a departure from my typical subjects, I wanted to mention that I'm intentionally overdosing on horror movies this month. During a recent visit to the Atheist Coalition forums (Update: these forms are no longer active, so the original link has been removed), someone told me about a good discussion board over at the Internet Movie Database focused on horror films. I decided to check it out and learned about something they are doing called the October Movie Challenge. The idea is to watch 31 horror movies during the month of October. Participants update their movie lists regularly so everyone can see what they are watching.

Silly? Yes. Do I have time to do this? Of course not. Nevertheless, I'm giving it a shot and have watched 11 movies so far. Some have been terrible; some have been outstanding. I've always loved horror movies, and this is a great excuse to see some of the classics that are new to me.
