31 Horrors 2022 – overview

This Halloween we managed 27/31 horrors and I’m pretty stoked with that. It was fun having a new theme each day which meant we did films I don’t normally do when left to my own devices. I also use ‘we’ here because the old man was much more involved than previous years so that made it way more fun.

If I’m completely honest, outside the challenge I watched much more than 27 but I’m sure that’s not much of a surprise. So, to the films we watched for the #31dayhorrorchallenge, courtesy of Nightmare on Film Street podcast.

For the blog collab we also reviewed:


And finally, a special shout-out to the two horror movies I managed to catch in the cinema. The wonderfully stressful Smile and the long-awaited, Strode Vs. Myers showdown Halloween Ends.

I thoroughly enjoyed Smile, which aged me by approximately 10 years, and Halloween Ends was very interesting, very ambitious with some plot points that worked/didn’t work in equal measure.
