When you love scary movies

If you love horror movies and the Halloween season is your favorite time of year, the 31 Horror Films in 31 Days Challenge might be for you. I completed my first challenge four years ago and I had so much fun doing it I’ve continued to take the challenge every year since.  

The rules are pretty simple — beginning October 1st watch 31 previously unseen horror movies by midnight of Halloween. It doesn’t have to be a movie a day. You can miss days and catch up on the weekend. Or call in sick to work (just kidding, I would never do that!)

There are many similar challenges out there, but this one in particular spawned from the mind of author Daniel Kraus and here is his blog post telling you more about it. To make the challenge even more fun, take to Twitter posting a short description of every movie you watch using the hashtag #31HorrorFilms31Days. Don’t forget to tag @OfficialRPL! We would love to hear about the movies you’re watching and give you some recommendations along the way.

To get you started and set you up for success (and bragging rights), here is a list of classic horror movies instantly available on our movie streaming service Kanopy (read more about getting started with Kanopy here). Don’t forget RPL also has TONS of horror movies on DVD that you can borrow for free with your library card: check some of them out here!

I will be back at the end of the month to tell you how my challenge went.
