H2O Halloween Horror Omnifest

by chickfighter | created - 3 months ago | updated - 3 months ago | Public

a thirty-one film festival, one for each night in October leading up to Halloween. My first list had about ninety films so I first eliminated everything before 1970 and then just culled down to the ones I most wanted to watch again. This resulted in the list containing almost exclusively fun films that are gratuitous and humorous, intentionally or otherwise.
