I didn’t do a 31 Days of Halloween last year so I fancy one again now. I’ll work out a schedule this week. I used to (mostly) try not to repeat-watch any movies I’d watched in previous Halloweenathons gone by but I’m disregarding that this year, so everything’s back up for grabs. I also used to insist only on either Halloween-themed movies or strictly supernatural/witchy type stuff but I’m relaxing that rule, too.
I haven’t given SpagvemberFest much thought at all this year. Last year, I had all my movies planned by June! The one thing I had thought about was that I might make at least one movie a non-Italian western and one movie not a western at all, in honour of Mill Creek’s legendary 44-movie spaghetti western set which includes the American Apache Blood and the contemporary action thriller The Manhunt.
EDIT I’ve pulled together a crude thirty for SpagvemberFest now (no anomalies in the end). I might make a few alterations between now and when it starts, and I haven’t worked out which day I’ll be watching what, but I know that last year I went solely with titles I’d never seen or titles I’d only seen once or twice at the most which I felt were due a re-watch, and it was f*cking brutal. The year previous, I’d gone with my personal thirty favourites and it was easy so I’m going to go much more in that direction this year, though maybe not quite so structured. Just a bunch of titles I want to watch in rapid succession.
