Finally, the month I base my entire personality on has arrived!
Last year I tried to set myself two challenges – taking part in Inktober (even though I can’t really draw) and watching one spooky movie a day.
I failed at both.
Another thing I failed at last year was starting a book club – Bad Luck Book Club – but I blame that on timing. It was early Spring, and the pandemic came along and shut everything down.
This year, instead of doubling down on a Halloween challenge, I’ll be watching one seasonally-appropriate movie per day, and I thought this would be a great opportunity for another run of Bad Luck. Want to watch along?
Here’s my Bad Luck Film Club watchlist, and where to watch in the UK:

Clearly not all of these are strictly horror movies, some I’ve seen before, others I’m ashamed to admit I’ve never seen. I’ll be noting and possibly posting some hot (and less hot) takes.
Have I missed out anything that’s on your October watchlist?
