31 Horror Movies in “31 Days”| #Blogoween
For the month of October I have planned to watched 31 horror movies!
This is the last blogoween post you’ll see from me, I had to post a day late to give me time to complete this challenge, particularly as I’ve been away since the 17th.
Keep reading to find out the last 9 movies I watched for this gigantic task! I can’t believe I successfully watched 31 even with how busy I’ve been.
PIRANHA 3D (2010): “Each year the population of sleepy Lake Victoria, Arizona explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 residents for the annual Spring Break celebration. But then, an earthquake opens an underwater chasm, releasing an enormous swarm of ancient Piranha that have been dormant for thousands of years, now with a taste for human flesh. This year, there’s something more to worry about than the usual hangovers and complaints from locals, a new type of terror is about to be cut loose on Lake Victoria.”
Jon, my boyfriend, decided we should give this a watch as he’d seen the original and had heard this was pretty funny too and y’know what, I’ll give him that it was funny.
The poster I’ve added for this movie is a clear indicator of what you’re going to get from this so if youre down for nudity, piranhas, and some bad acting from the guy who plays Jeremy in The Vampire Diaries give this a watch.
THE LOST BOYS (1987): “A mother and her two teenage sons move to a seemingly nice and quiet small coastal California town yet soon find out that it’s overrun by bike gangs and vampires. A couple of teenage friends take it upon themselves to hunt down the vampires that they suspect of a few mysterious murders and restore peace and calm to their town.”
After writing up my post about Vampires I just knew I had to rewatch The Lost Boys and honestly I enjoyed it even more this time around. I LOVE THIS MOVIE and the aesthetic is awesome too.
LOST BOYS: THE TRIBE (2008): “The sequel to the 1987 cult hit The Lost Boys takes us to the shady surf city of Luna Bay, California, where vampires quickly dispatch anyone who crosses their path. Into this dark world arrive Chris Emerson (Hilgenbrink) and his younger sister, Nicole (Reeser). Having just lost their parents in a car accident, the siblings move in with their eccentric Aunt Jillian and become new prey…”
I want to be as enthusiastic about this movie as much as the first one but uh its uh not great. The acting is terrible all around but I still enjoyed it though that mostly might be for Corey Feldman.
I’ll happily rewatch it again but I might be the only person who would do so.
JACOBS LADDER (1990): “A traumatized Vietnam war veteran finds out that his post-war life isn’t what he believes it to be when he’s attacked by horned creatures in the subway and his dead son comes to visit him…”
I picked this up after Tim Lebbons recommendation and I can definitely see why!
This movie was a wild ride and jumps all over the place with a very nightmarish atmosphere. I agree with the recommendation for this movie for sure.
APOSTLE (2018): “In 1905, a man travels to a remote island in search of his missing sister who has been kidnapped by a mysterious religious cult.”
I almost gave up on this movie but after seeing good reviews for it on Letterboxd I gave it a second chance.
This is a slow starting movie but its worth it once the supernatural elements start happening more. I think the whole look of the Goddess and her cage was great.
THE WITCHES (1990): “A young boy named Luke and his grandmother go on vacation only to discover their hotel is hosting an international witch convention, where the Grand High Witch is unveiling her master plan to turn all children into mice. Will Luke fall victim to the witches’ plot before he can stop them?”
THE ADDAMS FAMILY (1991): “Uncle Fester has been missing for 25 years. An evil doctor finds out and introduces a fake Fester in an attempt to get the Addams Family’s money. The youngest daughter has some doubts about the new uncle Fester, but the fake uncle adapts very well to the strange family. Can the doctor carry out her evil plans and take over the Addams Family’s fortune?”
GHOST STORIES (2017): “Professor Phillip Goodman devotes his life to exposing phony psychics and fraudulent supernatural shenanigans. His skepticism soon gets put to the test when he receives news of three chilling and inexplicable cases – disturbing visions in an abandoned asylum, a car accident deep in the woods and the spirit of an unborn child. Even scarier – each of the macabre stories seems to have a sinister connection to the professor’s own life.”
I put these three together because one I’m still jetlagged and two I watched all these on the plane to Seoul. It was long and tiring.
The Witches holds a place in my heart as its my favourite Dahl book and the adaptation is spooky but fun too.
The Addams Family is one I could’ve sworn I’d seen before but it really didn’t ring any bells as I watched it. I loved the design, humour, and story of this. Definitely recommend.
Ghost Stories was an odd one for sure. Its 3 short stories kinda that all relate and end up with a surprise ending. It was executed pretty well and its worth giving a try for its atmosphere.

CARRIE (2002): “Carrie White is a lonely and painfully shy teenage girl with telekinetic powers who is slowly pushed to the edge of insanity by frequent bullying from both classmates at her school, and her own religious, but abusive, mother.”
As I watched the original and had seen the newest remake on release I thought it only fair I give this one a watch too.
However I’m not so sure this was a good idea. It was fun to see a lot of actors I recognised but mostly I didn’t have a good time and felt like I was watching this for 8 hours…
THE POSESSION (2012): “A young girl buys an antique box at a yard sale, unaware that inside the collectible lives a malicious ancient spirit. The girl’s father teams with his ex-wife to find a way to end the curse upon their child.”
I’m currently watching this as I type up this post but it’ll finish before midnight on the 31st so yup that means I’ve done it!! 31 Horror movies in 31 days (shhh forget I started early to make up for my time away).
So far so good with this movie, I’m pretty sure I’ll enjoy it as I don’t have any complaints so far.
I hope you liked this post, I do tend to watch a lot of movies so this could become a regular thing if people are interested.
& thank you for joining my on my little challenge!
