I wasn't sure if I would do the same thing I did these past two years during Christmas, but I was sure I wanted to do something. And then I decided that since I am still working and want down time when I am home I would do a daily movie. In other words I would do a countdown to Halloween here on my blog, but in a way were we could interact together. So everyday I want to watch one horror movie or Halloween type film and post about it here on my blog so that each day anyone can watch it along with me.
I graduated from college having watched a few films because of my major, but I haven't seen EVERYTHING and I really want to do that when it comes to this genre. For example today I watched a movie I had heard about in different parts of the internet and had gotten curious about. I had no idea what it was about other than a "trailer" I found on YouTube. The movie wasn't exactly for me, but at least now I know that it isn't a movie I will see again and at least now I understand the references to the film.
What I plan to do is pick a movie that is either new to me or one I already enjoy and watch it. One movie each day leading up to Halloween. I plan to let all of my readers here know about my pick of the day so that we can watch it that same day and possibly live tweet about it with a hashtag or something. (help me come up with a hashtag) Possibly #mabelsmovie or #blogoweenmovie or something shorter than those. I might not watch a movie every single day until Halloween, but I really want to and if I'm not busy I will. I would also appreciate it if you left a comment with any movie recommendations on this post and I'll check back in order to choose a few for future Blogoweens. Should that be a thing #blogoween, it's probably been done.
Let me start with the movie I watched today. Here is the trailer I mentioned...
Anyways I'll try not to spoil any of the movies I watch because I hate when that happens, but I will try and give you my thoughts afterwards. It might be hard to get a hold of these movies at times, but with the internet you can find loads of places to rent them if you want to participate with me. Also, try going to your local library and finding copies there although it might be hard to watch along with me if you do that. Anyways I just wanted to start doing something fun on my blog especially since I am so excited for Halloween, am I the only one? I'm always excited about things months before I should be. For the first few posts I'll try to watch the movies before writing a blog post in order to give you guys an idea of what will happen in October. I might not start doing this daily until then, but I might be making a calendar with movies on each day in order to let you know ahead of time. I hope this is a fun idea and you come back and check for what movie I plan to watch.
