Halloween is coming and we’re practically at loose ends.  October 1st promises what could be, as the nights grow colder and the days grow shorter and the nights grow colder. We rush headlong into preparations all for that one night of the year when we’re finally appreciated for having gallons of fake blood and severed limbs and pounds of fake spiderwebs in our attics – you know just in case.

There will be evenings after hours of untangling orange and purple lights, rewiring motion-activated limbs, waiting for the paint to dry on the front garden graveyard, and you’ll just want to snuggle in your pile of unsorted clown masks to kick back and watch a movie.

But what to watch? Look, as horror writers, this is probably the second most asked question, especially around the Halloween Season – what scary movie do you recommend?

We put all of our severed heads together to come up with a viewing guide. No longer will you flip through your massive collection of DVD and Blu-Ray discs, looking for that perfect movie to watch. Allow us to plan your evenings. no, don’t thank us, you’ve earned this.

GLAHW is proud to present 31 Days of Halloween, a curated guide to October. In addition to 31 great horror movies, each week is also curated by a member, presenting their top picks for their categories. Every Monday through the month of October, a member will drop by and present their Picks of the Week. There will be some tried and true favorites as well as some hidden gems maybe you haven’t seen yet. We think you’ll agree this should keep you entertained through the end of October.

We’ve even included a handy printable .pdf guide, both in color and printer-friendly. Just right-click and save as.

Our first Curated drop is later today, with Nicole e. Castle giving her top Witches picks.
