I didn’t watch the full 31 horror movies like I wanted to, but I did watch a lot of Halloween specials of sitcoms, so overall, I’m pretty pleased with what I did end up seeing. And here’s what I drew for you all.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre – The classic.
IT (the original 1990 TV movie). Even though this movie is super rough and kind of shitty in parts, I actually give a shit about the characters and want to see them win.
The Vengeful Dead – Christ Almighty, this movie was boring. I bought it at a thrift store for a quarter, knowing it’d either be an amazing hidden gem waiting to be discovered, or just the worst. It was the latter.
The Exorcist – Hey, look, I drew a gif!
Dracula 2000 – I know Stupid Decisions come with the territory in horror movies, but this movie was only made possible by every decision every single person makes being the worst possible one.
Leprechaun 2 – I actually kind of liked it.
Halloween 2 – Even though it’s a step down from its predecessor, it’s still better than it has any right to be.
Donnie Darko – Even though I don’t love it as much as I did when I was a teenager, this is just good, solid fun.
Ravenous – Delicious.
Orphan and The Ice-Cream Man (here’s a two-for)
The Rocky Horror Picture Show and The Lighthouse (another two-for)
The Final Terror – One of my favorite slashers. Criminally underrated.
Hocus Pocus – A bunch of grown-ass adults acting super silly, and it’s so fun.
It’s Alive – Thank god I don’t have kids.
The Leopard Man – This was the last movie I had to see in order to say I’ve seen all of Val Lewton’s horror productions, and it was a damn good one. Scary, twist and brisk.
When A Stranger Calls – Man, what a great opening followed by a boring movie and a pretty okay finale.
Slaughter High – Usually, kids in slasher movies are unlikable. These kids are fucking psychos. And I think we’re still supposed to like them. I’ve never rooted for a slasher harder.
Strangeland – Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck, this was bad.
The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra – It’s cute. I like it.
The Sixth Sense – Fuckin’ stone cold classic. It’d been years since I saw it and I forgot how sad it is.
Dark Night of the Scarecrow – Made-for-TV movie that is genuinely dark and upsetting. So goddamned good.
The Witch – I love this movie a lot.
Re-Animator – Somehow high-class and supremely silly. It’s the best.
Misery – This movie is genuinely good. And that damned hobbling scene makes me rub my ankle every. Damn. Time.
Lake Mungo – Do yourself a favor and, if you haven’t seen it already, go and watch this movie like right fucking now. It’s streaming on Amazon Prime.
