HAIL HORROR YEAR 4!
That's right, October's a few weeks away, which means I'm diving back into the horror pool, watching dozens of horror films both old and new, and failing (as is now Hail Horror Tradition) to review at least half of them. Last year I finally came to the conclusion that any goal I was going to set for myself simply wasn't going to happen - and that realization freed me to have a lot more fun during the month.
Funny thing about last year's marathon, though - it didn't get posted here.
So in order to set the tone and gets things ramped up for the slew of GOOD, BAD, and GREAT titles I have lined up to talk about this year, I'll be posting last year's reviews every couple days. To take a line from NBC's great re-run marketing strategy, "If you haven't read 'em...they're new to you!"
And as always, if you have any requests, let me know! I'm always on the lookout for a great recommendation. Two guidelines:
- It can't be a movie I've already reviewed.
- It has to be readily available - either at the local theater, store, rental house, or Netflix. I'm not adverse to spending a few bucks to see, rent, or purchase a film, but I'm not going to shell out $39.99 for an obscure Asian import with no subtitles.
