Horror Movie Month Round Up

Well October has now been and gone meaning Horror Movie Month has come to an end. I had a lot of fun delving into the world of horror and enjoyed seeing a few films I might not otherwise have given a chance. Like I said when I started this, I’m not the biggest fan of horror as, quite simply, it scares me a bit too much and I’m not overly fond of being scared. Whimpish, I know.

However, the stuff I saw pleasantly surprised me and aside from a few creepy moments, I wasn’t generally as scared as I presumed I would be. Perhaps my own imagination is worse than the reality. Or maybe it’s because I mostly watched films that weren’t that scary. It could well be that. In fact, it’s almost definitely that. Here is a list of what’s gone up this month:

Probably my favourite film of the month was Rosemary’s Baby, which really drew me in and unsettled rather than straight up frightened me. The low point, as you can tell from the title of the post, was Wolf Creek. I’ve seen a lot of love for that film but, for me, it was pretty shocking. You may also notice that there are a fair few guest posts littered throughout the month, which definitely helped me keep a regular stream of content hitting the site. I would like to say a massive thank you to Keith from Keith & The Movies, Mark from Marked Movies, Fernando from Committed to Celluloid, Tyson from Head in a Vice, and Daniel from Daniel’s Film Reviews for allowing me to use their stuff; it’s been an absolute pleasure to have posts from such great bloggers and if you haven’t already checked their sites out, I highly recommend you do so.

So that just about sums up Horror Movie Month. I’ve managed to get something up almost every other day, which is more frequent than I’m used to and, as such, I doubt I’ll be posting quite that often at the moment. I do however, have a few reviews to write from non-horror stuff I saw during the month so I’m sure I’ll be kept busy over the coming weeks. Many thanks if you’ve stopped by, read my stuff and left some comments over the past month and I hope you continue to do so in the future.

    I have a similar relationship with the horror genre as you I think. I think I don’t like horror films and that they scare me a lot. But then I actually sit down and watch them and I find that there are a lot of fantastic horror films and I am not particularly scared by them either.

    • Yep, sounds exactly the same as me! I always think they’re going to be scarier than they actually are and I always enjoy them more than I presume I will. The Orphanage was a prime example of that. I thought I was going to crap myself but I didn’t find it especially scary, just a really good film.
