Scary Movie Challenge IV


You're going down, Scary Movies.

It's Scary Movie Month! Time for the fourth annual Scary Movie Challenge!

You know the drill by now. 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.

Some clarification: You do NOT have to watch a movie every day. They do NOT have to be movies you have never seen. You do NOT have to watch ONLY horror movies (though we don't know why you wouldn't). The goal is just for all of us to work together and get as many seven word reviews as possible. Last year, we got over 1,000. SUCK IT, LAST YEAR. We can put that number to shame.
 
I think this year we should just watch ALL of the scary movies.

Also, we want to know who you are so we can read your posts on the podcast. If you're posts are coming up as "Anonymous," please take a second to register and get a proper handle. Thanks everyone!

We're so glad you all are joining us and that you're so excited. This really is the best 31 days of the year.
