I figured it was time I got off my keister and got to work spinning my own yarn of cowboys and terror. (less)

Build Your Horrortober Movie Watch List

For those hellions who thought the Monster Men were dead, I’m happy to report that we are back after dusting from grave dirt off our shoulders. I mean, how could we let Horrortober pass us by without playing the 31 Days of Halloween game?

You know the rules. All you need is the book and some dice. Each roll corresponds to a specific theme, movie and day to watch it throughout October. Big shout out

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.”
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

“There is no friend as loyal as a book.”
Ernest Hemingway
