Fright Festival 2021

And that, as they say, is a wrap. With the graves a-yawning and the winds a-howling, another Halloween comes to a close. Thirty-one horror films over thirty-one days, with thirty-one reviews to show for it. I’ve linked them below, just in case you haven’t been following along, or if you’ve been waiting to read them once I finished.

Every year I think I’m going to do something different, and every year I wind up doing the same thing – a mix of old and new, chosen largely at random. The only real difference this year was having to write something about each one. Reviewing is not a skill that comes naturally to me, so it was a bit of a challenge; but if I’m being honest, that’s why I did it. It’s also why I’ll probably do it next year.

I made a conscious effort to watch more new films this year, and I managed eleven – not quite half, but close. I wanted to expand my horizons a bit, rather than just mainlining old favourites. That meant getting out of my comfort zone some, but on the whole I found it to be a rewarding experience. There was really only one stinker out of the bunch, and I decided not to even bother writing about it.

If you have any suggestions for what I should watch next year, please feel free to drop them in the comments below. And if you enjoyed these reviews, why not drop some change in my Ko-Fi account to help keep the lights on, so to speak? Either way, the list is below, with links. Enjoy!
