As mentioned previously in this post, October is my most favoritest month of the year. Unfortunately, I keep failing at October. Are you wondering, how on Earth does one FAIL at October? Check out My Halloween Score Card for 2011 to learn more. The Ghosts of Octobers Past are rattling their chains and demanding a little more fun in 2013.
This year I have a plan. Which is to say I have a better plan than I had back in 2011 and a way, way, WAY better plan than 2012. This year there will be more ghosts. More hauntings. More movies. More writing. And, most importantly, more October-themed posting on this blog. This time I double, triple pinky swear.
In preparation, Mike and I just loaded up our Netflix queue with the most delicious mix of classic and recent movies that are filled with mystery, suspense and/or things that go bump in the night:
- The Awakening (2011)
- The Innocents (1961)
- The Trouble with Harry (1955)
- The Woman in Black (2012)
- House of Voices (2004)
- Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983)
- Shadow of a Doubt (1943)
- Spellbound (1945)
- Dial M for Murder (1954)
- Vertigo (1958)
There’s more in our queue, but we probably won’t manage to get through that lot. We tried to choose movies that one or both of us have never seen…or don’t remember very well.
What about you? What are you planning for this October? Or do you prefer to save your excitement for other, less spooky months of the year?
