It's that time of the year again where everything spooky gets played up even more - because that's all 2020 needs, isn't it? Would it really shock anyone if a zombie plague broke out to really add the cherry on the shit sundae that is this year? Anyway, it is the things that go bump in the night taking centre stage this month.
Before getting to the schedule, a little update on the future of things on this site considering the state of the world. First off, new movie review will become thin on the ground as me and my friends have decided to swear off cinemas for the foreseeable future. Movie reviews will still go, but similar to now - those that can be watched at home.
It also means that there'll be more games getting reviewed, especially in 2021 if it takes a while for any vaccine to prove viable. There's a few games planned to be reviewed between now and the end of the year, but it's looking like a lot more once January hits and will help me at least get through my backlog.
Monday 5th October - game review: Heaven's Vault
The game that took my attention away from Final Fantasy VII Remake and easily the least scary thing to be looked at this month.
Thursday 8th October - movie review: Cam
I know very little about this other than it's been compared somewhat to Perfect Blue, which I loved, so I'm looking forward to watching it.
Monday 12th October - movie review: The Cabin in the Woods
Just a heads-up: I really, really like this movie and think it gets somewhat overlooked. Expect this review to be a positive one.
Thursday 15th October - movie review: Gerald's Game
Much like Cam, I don't know a great deal about this and opinions seem to vary wildly, so I'm interested to see whether this Stephen King adaptation is one of the good ones.
Monday 19th October - TV review: Sherlock: The Abominable Bride
Continuing the march through BBC's modern day take on the great detective, it's back to Victorian London for what was originally a New Year's Day special.
Thursday 22nd October - game review: Detention
Something I've been meaning to play for a while and it's a horror game that's very highly rated on Steam, so I'm looking forward to trying it out.
Monday 26th October - movie review: Lifeforce
Something a bit cheesy to almost end the month with, as an alien 'vampire' causes a zombie apocalypse because only all of that happening at the same time is a match for the nightmare that is 2020.
Thursday 29th October - ???
Not a cheat, as I do know what is planned to go here, but it's based on whether I get the time to do what I want that determines if it makes it. There's also a back-up in place in case time runs out, but why spoil the surprise?
