Welcome to the October Horror Movie Challenge!


This is the first in a series of seasonal movie challenges you can participate in on the comment section of this article, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. The choice is yours.

As you can see, some of the challenges are date specific and some are not. For the ones that are not date specific you can include more modern movies if you choose to.

It you participate on Twitter or Instagram please include #OctHorrorMovieChallenge on your post. If you don’t do the social media thing, you can comment on this article each day.

Please include the day  – “Day 12” , the challenge “Favorite Monster/Creature Movie” and an image, .gif, movie poster etc.

If you join the challenge on Facebook, please reply to the specific challenge posted on our page. The daily challenge will be posted at 4:00 am ET each day.

If you need some inspiration, check out the horror movies being shown on TCM in October here.
