It's that time of the year again. October kicks off this Saturday and that means it's time for another 31 Days of Horror Blog-a-Thon. Last year, I went hot and heavy on the Video Nasties, looked at a few non-Godzilla Toho flicks and spent a week reviewing some giallo oddities. This year, I'll be dividing things up a bit more evenly.
Week One will be devoted to that cult classic factory, Full Moon Entertainment.
Week Two will be spent diving into tales of madness and mayhem.
Week Three, we're looking at some non-monster related Hammer films.
Week Four will be spent doing something I've meant to do for quite some time. It's a whole week of George Romero film reviews.
So if you want to play along, here's the schedule:
