Octoblur 2017: R.I.P.!

45 Movies of Tooth-Grinding Terror in 31 Days

Octoblur 2017 ended Halloween night with a double feature pushing the month's total horror-ish watchlist to 45 movies. While the stand-out favorites of the month were revisits of some long-loved favorites (two of which I was lucky to catch on the big screen), the overall quality was very high, with the entire slate of movies averaging a 59% on my Flickchart. Even when the quality wasn't actually high, there was usually still some enthusiastic gore or other weirdness to keep the worst ones fun.
