Hooptober 5: First Bite (2018)

After years of missing the boat, I finally got onboard Cinemonster's annual Hooptober watch & review challenge, in its 5th incarnation.

Over half of these are 1st watches, and most of the rest are favorites and October staples. I technically started in September, but it's still 33 movies in just over a month.

10 'Anniversary Films' (Release years end in an 8, excluding 2018)
6 countries
6 decades
6 films from before 1970
6 films from the following: Romero, Cronenberg, Clive Barker, Terence Fischer, Sergio Martino, Bill Lustig (mix-and-match, or all one)
2 flying things that kill you films
1 silent film as a tribute to A Quiet Place
1 aquatic menace film as a tribute to Meg
2 women directed films
1 inanimate object comes alive film
1 film with Barbara Crampton in it
And 2 Tobe Hooper Films (There must ALWAYS be a Hooper film)
