Year Seven of a Daily Horror Movie

Like many horror franchises, my 31 Days of Horror challenge won’t die. Each year for the past six years, I’ve watched at least one horror movie a day all throughout October. And I’m going to continue the tradition in 2021.

I have a few ideas of what I’d like to watch this year, including the new Candyman, Malignant, A Quiet Place 2, and one of my all-time Halloween favorites: Trick ‘r Treat (see above gif). Halloween Kills comes out on October 15, which will be released on Peacock. We don’t have a subscription to that streaming service, so I’ll likely sign up for a free trial and watch it there; I do love seeing horror movies in the theater, but not when there’s still a pandemic. Boo.

I really enjoyed using Shudder last year, so I’m planning to re-subscribe for the month. I found that the service had a lot of unique offerings, including some solid originals. Beyond that, I’ll mostly be using Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and HBO Max. With a rental here and there.

If you’d like to see what I watched in previous years, you can check out these posts, which contain the full rundown of everything I streamed into my eyeballs.

I just did the math and have watched close to 200 horror movies throughout the six years of this challenge. So I’ll hit the 200 mark this year! That’s a pretty exciting milestone.
