    If I can I'll post a Horror classic a day for 31 days.
    Feel free to add your own..

    Oct 1: THE CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF I have loved this one since I saw it as a kid. The "explanation" in regard to the origin of the werewolf is like no other in movie history. There is so much to love about this one including the bewildering bits of disturbing dialog by Young Leone.. Can't skip mentioning the exceptional Oliver Reed.
    Hammer's only werewolf movie may be their best film.

    Not horror at all, but I make it a tradition to watch Garfield's halloween every year.

    I will probably watch the Hellraiser's pretty soon, and Halloween.

    Halloween will be shown in theaters - including Cool Springs Carmike on Oct 25th through Halloween.

    Oct 2. BLACK SABBATH The movie that scared me more than any other - ever!
    Bava horror trilogy that starts off with a quick scare in The Phone Call, then steps up significantly with The Wurdelak in Karloff's only vampire role (and what a role!).
    Then finishes up with the feature that slayed me as a kid - A Drop of Water.
    This movie was so effective in its day that a certain band co-opted the name..
    Extremely moody and colorful. Definitely an appropriate late night scare for the month of October!

    Halloween... the best time of the year.

    This is by no means a classic, and as such probably doesn't really fit this thread. But I feel the need to tout it any chance I get. The criminally under-viewed Behind the Mask: the Rise of Leslie Vernon. So freaking good. So funny. But still maintains a fun horror vibe. One of my favorite "horror" films of recent years (and probably one of the more entertaining movies in general). It's a Halloween staple around my house.

    I liked Behind The Mask. I've done score stuff with a few of the folks associated with that movie..

    I just thought it was so clever and well done. And a brilliant performance by the lead. There is a kickstarter up for a sequel. For some absurd amount of money you can actually get killed in the movie. If I had a spare 5k (or whatever it was) just laying around I'd totally do it.

    Oct 3. The Funhouse
    Who doesn't want to "spend the night in the funhouse"?
    Great fall vibe - and that sketchy old school carnival scene captured perfectly here.
    A freak in a Frankenstein mask terrorizing unsuspecting kids to boot? I'm all in !
