It’s that time of the year again and I can’t even contain my excitement. Anyone who knows me KNOWS October is my favorite month ever! I know what you’re thinking….because it’s my birthday month right? Not exactly. I’m a December baby, but it’s something about macabre, cauldron, cemeteries, cobwebs, coffins, witches, skulls, creep noises and Jack-O-Lanterns that really get my blood going. So to kick of the month, I’ve decided to compile a list of some of my favorite horror films if you aren’t already participating in Fright Fest.
