Wicked Wednesday: 100 horror films in 92 days, wrap-up #3

I did it! I watched 103 new-to-me horror movies from August to Halloween, beating the 100 horror films in 92 days challenge. I feel very accomplished, but now… I know of don’t know what to do with myself.

This month, I managed to accomplish my goal of watching some Asian films. Now I can safely say that I’m eager for more. I’m seeing Hausu, which looks joyously bonkers, next week at the cinema. And I haven’t even looked at the BFI’s programme for Japan 2021 yet. Please send along any recommendations.

Will I be doing this challenge next year? Hell no! But I’m glad I did it.

As someone who loves rewatching old favourites, this challenge is exactly what I needed to push myself out of my comfort zone. That being said, I’m feeling very burnt out. There have been many romantic comedies on the TV in the aftermath of Halloween.

A delightful SOV short about some kids at a Halloween party. Clearly just a group of friends making a movie together, and it’s pure magic. I’m desperate to know more about it. Watch it on YouTube here.

I watched this Spanish film during the Halloween FrightFest. This was my favourite movie I watched in October. A gorgeous giallo-inspired story that follows a group of Spanish tourists during their holiday in Venice. It ticked all boxes for me. Fantastic on the big screen.

  1. Nice. There’s good ones in there and it’s a diverse list. Bonus points for slipping in a Bernard L. Kowalski flick.
