    1. Thank you for another Scary Movie Month, FThisMovie! I needed it more than I realized. It was fun reading the reviews posted during the last 31 days. Only seven more months to wait till Junesploitation. Let's hope they are better months than recent ones.

      My count is 48 films, which was more than I expected to watch. Around 75% were completely new watches. I was drawn to older films this year; only nine were made after 1980. Maybe next year I will try to have a better balance of more recent titles.
