Wraith of Hooptober Eight: The Frights Are Coming! The Spine-Chills Are Here!

I continue to be amazed by the power Hooptober holds over me, as well as a large part of this site. Like, it's literally just a list of prompts to get me to watch horror films—which I would do through all of October anyway—but there's something so fun in crafting a watchlist with these themes that my stomach burst with joy months ahead each year. Not to mention, the overall moody and sweet feeling seeping throughout the community here on the site during these times, enough to light up any dark october night.

So here we are, eighth year in the row. Thanks as always, Cinemonster.
