    1. Night of the Living Dead (1968)
    2. Manhunter (1986)
    3. The Crazies (2010) kind of counts. Not too many horror films made in Iowa. Or movies in general.
    4. Um...n/a for now.
    5. American Psycho (2000)
    6. Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988)

    Seriously, when I'm genuinely tired, trying to watch a movie puts me to sleep immediately. And I've found it is action sequences that do it faster.

    As a primary school teacher, I'm surprised you've managed five.

    For me (not necessarily the best film in each category, but the one I would most want to sit down and watch right now). I have tried to restrict it only to movies I have seen before (except the two *)

    Features a serial killer or masked killer: seems like a good place to add Halloween.

    Not sure where I'd place it in the challenge, but we watched Terrifier late last week, after the trailer made the killer come off as legitimately unnerving. And honestly, the actor playing Art the Clown--a professional mime--imbues the silent character with real discomfort. Unfortunately, the film never bothers to invest us in any of the female leads, who all have the flattest of one-dimensional traits and then suffer through some absolute brutality, with the script moving us across characters without any real purpose. There's an almost-Psycho moment where the film resets our protagonist, but it doesn't come off as a helpful move, and instead feels like a decent short that's pushed to (barely) feature length (which I think it was).
    Ant-Man and the Wasp - 5
    Hereditary - 7
    Won't You Be My Neighbor? - 7.5
    The Tale - 8

    OCTOBER 8th: Adapted from a book or graphic novel


    I remember really digging this at one point. I have a feeling a revisit would not be a good thing.

    Can this be considered horror?

    OCTOBER 10th:
    Features insects or pests



    One of my faves as a kid. The end scene with a massive spider taking on Jeff Daniels could only be enjoyable to a kid, right?

    I saw it before I read the graphic novel, and it seemed... fine?

    Then I read the graphic novel, which is one of the best comics ever written.

    So it may be best to leave well enough alone...

    ...and watch Craven's Swamp Thing instead!
