Horror Movies…My Obsession to Watch Them All

I have a slight obsession with horror movies. Whenever I end up at a store, it is impossible for me to pass the movie section. Those big bins filled with cheap movies? Yeah…I lose hours of my life.

Always on the look out for horror movies I haven’t seen, for scary tales I haven’t heard of, it has become a problem. The horror movie drawer is full…and yet, I buy.

October is the perfect time for this.

Horror movies get their own Halloween-y section! And so many of them are $5.

SyFy channel is on its 31 Days of Halloween…playing creepy movies all the time, some old, some new, and some original SyFy productions.

Now, I have learned through the years that picking up a $5 movie on a whim or watching a SyFy original can be risky.

I have been disappointed. I have gotten to the end and cringed. If I’m lucky, it had an intriguing image or idea. Though I have a few movies, I should just toss out.

Most are okay. Nothing incredibly special, but fun.

Every once in a while, I find one that I really enjoy, a movie I hadn’t heard of, that sent my brain into happy-horror land. So the risk is worth it!

Tuning into TV horror is also a risk, but…

This month has been SUPER!

I have seen movies I have somehow missed:

Silent House…DUDE…just dude.

Trick ‘r Treat…THAT WAS A FUN TRIP!

Jennifer’s Body…I didn’t think I’d like it, BUT I DID

Jeepers Creepers…AH!

Texas Chainsaw Massacre…TWISTED.

Hollow Man…not my favorite…but interesting premise.

Drag Me to Hell…Whoa.

Odd Thomas…OMG HAS ANYONE ELSE SEEN THIS?

Joy Ride…A crazy ride.

The Exorcism of Emily Rose…NICE!

Saw…Ouchie.

And a shout out to all the original movies SyFy has given us this month. I never have high expectations for these, but some have been so fun! I am loving the…

House of the Witch

Truth or Dare

Neverknock

The Sandman

This weekend, something called…Stickman…

I am DVRing so many things. Thank creepiness that the month isn’t over yet. Anyone else out there watching these horrible/wonderful movies?

I have never been in such a happy horror movie place.

CAN IT BE OCTOBER FOREVER?!?!?!

    I used to be an avid watcher of SyFy’s 31 Days, but having a little one in the house I have to be more mindful of what I watch, so I’ve missed some of these.

    BUT! ODD THOMAS! That is a permanent fixture on my Netflix list, because I rewatch it about once a month. I just adore that movie.

Pay your respects.
