Horror Scavenger Hunt 33 - March 2021

Excited to be hosting again! Trying something a little different here, and I must admit that it wasn't entirely my idea, as one of the few non-horror scavenger hunts I did several years ago used this same general idea and similar criteria in some cases. But if like me you enjoyed the choose your own adventure type books as a kid then this might be the hunt for you. We're going to get A LOT of variety in this one because aside from starting your list inspired by something on Matt Winfield's highly rated films, we're going to be going in different directions. So without further ado...

Don't forget to tag your lists and reviews as "March Horror 2021" so…

  • The Autopsy of Jane Doe

    1.The Autopsy of Jane Doe

    ★★★½

    1. To start things off, let's thank Matt Winfield for hosting February's hunt by watching something that Matt has rated 4 stars exactly. He's a generous rater so you should have plenty of awesome options!
