WICKED WEDNESDAY: 100 HORROR MOVIES IN 92 DAYS 2022, WRAP-UP #1

I told myself, “Never again.” Never again would I challenge myself to watch 100 movies in three months. That’s a lot of movies. Do I even like movies that much? What is a movie?

Well.

Here we are again. I am nothing but a weak, competitive soul.

But this year, I’m going full metal. We’re following all the rules, baby! This Letterboxd challenge, created by user Sarah Stubbs, asks horror fans to watch 100 new-to-them horror films in the three months leading up to Halloween. Sarah has a list of all the rules on her website. And unlike last year, I’m trying to abide by them all! This means no short films (at least 45 minutes) and must be tagged as “horror” in either IMDB or Letterboxd unless considering gateway horror. And yeah, that ruined all my giallo options!

Jokes aside. I do enjoy this. And it’s a great way of forcing myself to watch some films I’ve put off for ages.

At the point of writing, I’m about halfway there. But here is everything I watched in September. Check out my Letterboxd if you care to check out more, including seeing my ratings!
