Slightly late October debrief!

So how are we all doing after October? I've been on a horror hiatus myself, as a month solid of the genre + election fever took its toll a bit. I'm feeling almost ready to get back into things though; I watched The Killing of a Sacred Deer last night (twice, actually) and loved it. More of a thriller, technically, but definitely on the darker side of things!

In any case, I just wanted to check in with a roundup of my October viewing. This was the first year that I went almost entirely off-road with what I ultimately decided to watch, so not a great deal of my list got much love, but I still had a lot of fun. If you want to see what my eyeballs looked at last month (and my thoughts, where applicable), I listed them on my Letterboxd here


Favourite new discovery: The Devil's Candy (reviewed here).

Other highlights: Saw the new Halloween at a drive-in, fresh from watching the original - a special moment!; Hounds of Love (reviewed here) was as good as I'd hoped; Hell House LLC had its moments and The Witch In The Window did a lot with little.

Least favourite: Sorority Row (reviewed here) was boring and gross (not in a good way) and Willow Creek was disappointing and boring until the final sequence.

I know a lot of people dived into Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House, so I'm looking forward to starting that soon. Did you discover anything good from your October watchlist? Do you have any recommendations or movies to avoid? Let me know! :)
