Octoblur: If the quality doesn't scare you the quantity will.
I managed to watch 43 movies during Octoblur 2015 — just over 66 hours — a few shy of last year's total, but still enough horror to make the days blend into one giant swirl of perversion. Yet, even though Octoblur 2015 saturated me to the point of burn-out with ghoulish imagery, it still feels like I left out 20 (or more) movies I really wanted to get to. Some of them will have to wait until next year.
While this year I tried to focus mainly on horror movies I hadn't seen before — or so long ago my memories of them had faded — two of my favorites of the month were my Halloween night viewings of The Funhouse and Ringu. I became fond of several new titles over the last month, but this year just didn't have anything that matched last Octoblur's knockout discoveries of Hausu, A Tale of Two Sisters and Mo (The Boxer's Omen). I'll have to pick my selections more shrewdly next Octoblur!
Here's the run-down from Octoblur 2015, in order from best to worst:
