Hello once again! 

As with the last piece, this is a re-post of a submission from last year’s (then-titled) Halloween Movie Madness series. As this post was submitted by our friend at Recycled Horrors, you could say that this piece is being “recycled”. You COULD say that, but you’d probably get smacked in the mouth for making such a weak-ass joke.

Yes, this is one of the few pieces that I was lucky enough to have sent back to me (after losing all of last year’s entries), but it’s also another example of thinking outside the normal “confines” of a movie review. Presented here is Recycled Horrors own personal “Horrorfest”. We may call it different things, but so many of us horror fans tend to have them; the personal movie marathons we have around every Halloween, the films that we HAVE to watch to get us in the spirit.

If you don’t already have one, maybe this will encourage you to have your own “Horrorfest”. Maybe you’re new to the genre and could use a few recommendations. Either way, I thought this post was a great way to start off the series last year, and I’m thrilled to announce that Recycled Horrors will return to kick off events this year on Oct 1st!!!! –D

Greetings fellow horror enthusiasts.

When it comes to tradition, each Halloween has two commitment screenings that are never bumped in favor of something else. Obviously Halloween is one, but that’s not what this is about. The second must-view showing on 10/31 is The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

The tradition’s roots were born sometime in 1995 or 1996, I can’t recall which one for sure. I had just finished trick r’ treating with a friend when I returned home and stumbled upon RHPS for the first time. V/H/1 was hosting a marathon viewing of this then-unknown-to-me cult classic. Hooked by “The Time Warp”, I was glued to the TV and watched an additional replay. Also of note is that these showings were edited. The tradition became more complete when I purchased RHPS about three years later on DVD uncut, commercial-free and in it’s full glory.
Along with our staple tradition of Halloween night, each year we put together a 31 Day Horrorfest. Each night follows a theme and we do our best to include different and unique entries as opposed to the regular staples – of which we watch regardless of the time of year. This year’s roster includes:
