Scary Movie Challenge VII (Day 1)
It's your favorite time of year! 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.
As is our tradition, we'll be reading many of our favorite seven word reviews on the podcast(s) each week. We'll try to get to as many as we can, but there are just too many good ones!
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.
I know it's tempting to foster discussion based on what everyone is watching, but that's going to throw the count off. Please keep the SMC threads dedicated only to seven word reviews. Each weekend we'll have an open thread where everyone can discuss what they've been watching. Sound good?
Have fun! Be scared! Hide the bodies.
