Halloween-Desktop-Wallpaper

Yesterday, I posted the list of my “31 Days of Halloween” selections for 2012, so it’s only fitting that I post my 2013 screenings today. I decided to change things up a little last year and started grouping films into double (sometimes triple or more) features, thematically grouping them when possible. While some of my categories were a little “suspect” (it was occasionally difficult to figure out where to slot films, hence the oddness of programming Jim Mickle’s extraordinarily grim Stake Land with the ultra-goofy House 2 and Troll 2), I was particularly proud with how well some of them went together.

In the interest of continuing to explore the concept of themed pairings (as well as cram as many horror films into the month as possible), I’ll be continuing the double+ screenings for 2014 (where time allows, of course). In the meantime, enjoy this list of last October’s frightful treats.
