Today’s Top Ten post is a Halloween freebie. I adore Halloween. The vibe. The aesthetic. The ability to try on identities. The abundant scary movies! Keeping all that in mind, it might be surprising that I don’t love horror novels. I typically find them kind of trite and predictable. I’m sure there are good ones, but it’s just not my genre.
However, I love me a scary movie. This year was my first year attending Dedfest, a locally run week of horror/horror adjacent movies. These are not your typical blockbuster fare movies. Some are gross, some scary, some down right silly, and most a combination of all of those things. I only went to a couple of the many, many movies they showed over the course of the festival, but it inspired today’s post. (I’ve included bookended the post with he movies I saw)
The following movies may include a few laughs, a bit of a spine shiver, some disturbing AF content, and healthy dose of suspension of reality.
