The Scary Movie Challenge II

It's baaaack...

To celebrate the greatest month of the year, we're bringing back the popular Scary Movie Challenge! The rules are simple: Every time you watch a horror movie during the month of October, add the name of the movie and a SEVEN WORD REVIEW (no more, no less) in the comments section of this post.

Last year, we beat our target of 100 and got to 125, so this year we're raising the goal to 150. That's no problem! If we just watch every Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Friday the 13th, Hellraiser, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Saw movie, we'll already be at 51!

Just like before, we'll be reading many of our favorite entries on the podcast throughout the month. Pressure!

Check out last year's Scary Movie Challenge if you still aren't sure what we're talking about.

Let's do this, F Heads! Yay Scary Movie Month!!!
