End of October Update

So, October has gone quickly and not exactly to plan. I didn’t get round to watching a horror marathon of your recommendations due to internet issues and a lack of time outside of that. I’ve got a word document with everything recommended to me and I will be watching them all over the next few weeks. Sorry about that, but thank you for recommending them. I’ve enjoyed what I’ve seen so far. The Babadook was great, as was The Final Girls. I think Dave Made a Maze was a missed opportunity but I still enjoyed it.

Tomorrow I will be uploading my round-up of the Halloween franchise. I just have Resurrection to watch tonight and then I’ve seen all 12 of them. Considering how much I like the first one, I’m not sure what put me off the sequels, for the most part I’ve enjoyed them. After that I’m not sure what the next franchise will be, hopefully something shorter.

I started reading The Whistling yesterday, not very far through it, but enjoying it so far. There’s a creepy tone to it and I’m very excited to see where it goes. I’ll be reading that over the next few days. It’s hooked me straight away. Feels like an old gothic horror and that may be my favourite genre.

My main focus at the moment is getting ahead again on film reviews. I was ahead at one point by almost a week, but thanks to the internet issues I lost that lead. I’ll be getting it back again as soon as possible. Once I’m ahead I can start focusing on my short stories again. I have a couple almost finished, and it would be nice to get another one finished and uploaded before the end of the year.

Friday, I’m going to be writing up a ranking of Edgar Wright’s films. He’s one of my favourite directors, and with Last Night in Soho out, it seems like the perfect time to write about all of his films.

Thanks for reading and until next time,

  1. It’ll be interesting to see your Edgar Wright rankings. I really enjoyed Shaun of the Dead.:-)
