October Rust


Well, it's finally here, my favorite month of the year - October!

To kick of this month, sure to be filled with chills and thrills, we're going to do a retrospective of Octobers past here on the 'Choke. Olympic Artichoke's format isn't really "all horror - all the time", I just happen to have that predilection and most of my writing as of late has come out that way. But even in the past when we were more focused on pop culture and baseball around here (I still love both - and am very sad that my Rangers are out of it now) we always have had bloody, horror-filled Octobers. Hopefully this year is no different. Let's kick it.

And, finally, a small announcement. It has been a few years since I was able to succesfully watch 31 horror films in the month of October, but I'm ready to run the Gauntlet again. I'm having a child in December, so this may be the last time I am able to do something like this for a long time. Anyway, I will give it my damndest and keep a running log, just for you, dear readers!
