31 Horror Films in 31 Days: The Slime-Sucking Conclusion

Creee-ee-eeee-eek. That’s the sound of the casket closing on the eighth annual #31HorrorFilms31Days challenge. Once again, we saw people from across the world participate in the hashtag, all of whom, we have just learned, were actually pod-people clones of me. Interesting twist—and weirdly flattering. Thanks? Below are the final lists of Booklist staffers who injected dozens […]

The 31 Horror Films in 31 Days Challenge: 2016

“Sweet sassy Satan!,” as Old Granny Kraus used to cackle. (No, she didn’t.) Is it that time of year again already? Now that you mention it, October’s approach does explain a few unsettling visions I’ve been blaming on an outdated glasses prescription. How when I get on the train every morning, I expect everyone to turn toward […]

31 Horror Films in 31 Days 2015: The Puke-Spewing Conclusion

Year Seven (or Se7en, if you’re David Fincher) of #31HorrorFilms31Days is in the books—a book bound in human skin housed in our “special collections” room—and, given the high participation rate, both in the Twittersphere and here at Booklist, it’s understandable why much of the staff today is red-eyed, blue-lipped, mumbling, and cringing each time the water cooler goes blub, […]

The 31 Horror Films in 31 Days Challenge: 2015

Can you believe that this is the seventh year for the 31 Horror Films in 31 Days Challenge? Why, I remember when this whole idea was just a glimmer in my eye. (The glimmer turned out to be a carnivorous guinea worm, which tunneled through my eye’s vitreous humor and lodged itself in my frontal […]

31 Horror Films in 31 Days 2014: The Pus-Boiling Conclusion

Bow, filthy mortals! Kneel before your new overlord! For I have, for the fifth year in a row (2009 is the Year That Cannot Be Named), descended into the underworld, grappled with legions of steaming hell-beasts, and emerged gore-striped and victorious to rule with absolute sovereignty over the sprawling acreage of Hell! It can now be proclaimed that […]

The 31 Horror Films in 31 Days Challenge

It’s hard to believe that the first 31 Horror Films in 31 Days Challenge was -> five -> long -> years -> ago. You know what I could have accomplished in five years? Why, I could have a strapping five-year-old child by now. Or two-and-a-half two-and-a-half-year-old children—is that how it works? Or five deformed fetuses floating in mason jars? Whatever—point is, I’ve spent every year since 2009 cramming […]

31 Horror Films in 31 Days: 2009

If you followed the link to this post, then you are searching for the record of my first foray into the 31 Horror Films in 31 Days challenge—aka The Year I Failed. Here’s what I managed before being reduced to a sobbing blob. (By the way, I watched both versions of The Blob.) 1. [REC] […]
