31 Days of Halloween

Don’t Swipe Right on These Horror Dream Dates

Need a date for the spooky season?

Welcome to another installment of 31 Days of Halloween! This is our chance to set the mood for the spookiest and scariest month of the year as we focus our attention on horror and Halloween fun. For the month of October we’ll be sharing various pieces of underappreciated scary books, comics, movies, and television to help keep you terrified and entertained all the way up to Halloween.

Listen to the latest episode of the AIPT Movies Podcast!

Time to play F--k, Marry, Kill with the stars of our favorite horror movies. Just kidding, we don’t want to do any of these things without full consent and or a fair trial. However, it is a pretty popular opinion that villains are sometimes far more captivating than heroes. Villains or any protagonist in a horror movie seems to be a bit more interesting than the average person. They are usually haunted by a mysterious past and have unconventional ambitions. Here are some of the best dates for your Halloween night viewing.
