Trey’s #31DaysofHorror

It’s here! My favorite time of year. The weather gets cooler, the leaves change, and we are surrounded by everything spooky and macabre. This is my second #31DaysofHorror and this year I’ve decided to keep in the vein of my column “Let Me Watch that for You.” This list is comprised entirely of movies that are available on stream through Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Shudder. Most of these movies I have never seen but I have thrown in a few of my favorite movies just for good measure. Now without further ado, my #31DaysofHorror.

Oct 1 – Patchwork (2015, Tyler McIntyre)

Available streaming on Netflix

Oct 2 – BNB Hell (2017, Andrew Jordan)

Available streaming on Amazon Prime

Oct 3 – Goal of the Dead (2014, Thierry Poiraud and Benjamin Rocher)

Soccer and Zombies?!? Oh yeah, you bet your ass I’m there! Available streaming on Shudder.

Oct 4 – Digging up the Marrow (2014, Adam Green)

Available streaming on Shudder

Oct 5- Pumpkinhead (1988, Stan Winston)

 

This brings us to the first of my tried and true favorites. This was my dad’s favorite horror monster and I will always remember watching it with him as a kiddo. Pure 80’s monster goodness!

Oct 6 – Whither (2012, Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund)

I’ve heard this is the Swedish Evil Dead. Known as Sweden’s first zombie film shown in theaters. Available for stream on Amazon Prime

Oct 7 – The Invitation (2015 Karyn Kusama)

Really looking forward to watching this. I have heard nearly universally positive things about this one, but have yet to watch. Available for stream on Netflix

Oct 8 – Tucker and Dale vs Evil (2010, Eli Craig)

 

Just like The Invitation, this is one that I’ve missed out on despite hearing praise from all fronts. Equally excited about this one. Available for stream on Netflix

Oct 9 – Demons (1985, Lamberto Bava)

First-time watch on this classic available for stream on Shudder

Oct 10 –  I saw the Devil (2009, Kim Jee Woon)

Available for stream on Amazon Prime

Oct 11 – Baghead (2008, Jay and Mark Duplass)

Given how much I loved 2015’s Creep I had to give a chance to this 2008 effort from the Duplass brothers. Available for stream on Shudder

Oct 12 – House of the Devil (2009, Ti West)

Available for stream on Netflix

Oct 13 – American Werewolf in London (1981, John Landis)

 

Another favorite of mine, John Landis expertly mixes terror and comedy in this absolute classic available for stream on Shudder

Oct 14 – Dude Bro Party Massacre III (2017, Tomm Jacobsen)

Can a movie named “Dude Bro Party Massacre III” be any good? Why don’t “Dude Bro Party Massacre I & II” exist? These are burning questions to which I will find the answers. Available for stream on Amazon Prime

Oct 15 – Death Note (2017, Adam Wingard)

I have heard reviews ranging from singing praise (looking at you Anthony) to some people calling it the worst movie they have seen. Looking forward to checking this one out and seeing what this is all about. Available for stream on Netflix

Oct 16 – Deathgasm (2015, Jason Lei Howden)

I tried and tried, but I can not deny this blood-splattered laugh fest as spot on this list.

Oct 17 – What We Become (2015, Bo Mikkelson)

Available for stream on Netflix

Oct 18 –  The Eyes of my Mother (2016, Nicolas Pesce)

Available for stream on Netflix

Oct 19 – Phantasm (1978, Don Coscarelli)

As hard as it is to believe, I have never seen this classic horror standard. Looking forward to this one. Available for stream on Shudder.

Oct 20 – 3 Extremes (2003, Fruit Chan, Takashi Miike, Chan-Wook Park)

As a lover of anthology-style horror, I have heard many great things about this early 2000’s Chinese collection of stories. Now, thanks to Shudder, I get a chance to check it out.

Oct 21 – Dead Ringers (1987, David Cronenberg)

Available for stream on Shudder

Oct 22 – Black Christmas (1973, Bob Clark)

 

Available for stream on Shudder

Oct 23 – 31 (2016, Rob Zombie)

I’ve found Rob Zombie’s movies to be hit and miss, but I just couldn’t pass up this chance to check out his newest effort. Available for streaming on Shudder.

Oct 24 – Zombi (1978, Lucio Fulci)

This will be my first time checking out Fulci’s classic gore-fest and I couldn’t be more excited to get into it. Available for stream on Shudder.

Oct 25 – Them (2009, David Moreau and Xavier Palud)

Available for stream on Amazon Prime

Oct 26 – The Dead Zone (1983, David Cronenberg) 

Available for stream on Amazon Prime

Oct 27 – Honey Moon (2015, Diego Cohen)

Available for stream on Netflix

Oct 28 – We are still Here (2015, Ted Geoghegan)

Available for stream on Amazon Prime

Oct 29 – Green Room (2016, Jeremy Saulnier)

Getting down to the final stretch here, this is another one that I can’t believe I haven’t gotten around to watching. Looking forward to this tension-drenched thriller that stars Patrick Stewart as the head of a Neo-Nazi group holding a punk band hostage. Available for stream on Amazon Prime.

Oct 30 – Trick ‘R Treat (2009, Michael Dougherty)

I was working at a video store when this movie released and I took a copy home the minute it got scanned into the system. This has now become one of my favorite movies to watch during the Halloween season. What can I say, I’m a sucker for anthologies, and this one does it perfectly.

Oct 31 – Tales of Halloween (2015, Mike Mendez, Neil Marshall)

What’s more perfect for Halloween than a nice 10-story anthology that follows the goings on of a sleepy suburb on Halloween night? While not all of the segments in this are gems, it is a lot of fun and encapsulates the Halloween spirit perfect in my opinion.
