It's been months in the planning, but somehow it's here at last - July 24 and my 100 days of insanity!
This Saturday, I will kick off the 100 Days of Horror challenge with "The Ring," the 2002 remake of the Japanese film of the same name ("Ringu") from 1998.
I am working from a carefully assembled list compiled by a panel of experts in the horror genre field (i.e., my kids and best friend, Mr. Andress-Klimaxxx). However, we are open to suggestions, since many of these are pulled from my massive personal collection. So if you see something on the list that should be and isn't, please feel free to suggest one!
Here is a rundown of the first week's worth of movies:
1. July 24: The Ring
2. July 25: Carnival of Souls
3. July 26: Carrie
4. July 27: The Grudge
5. July 28: Planet Terror
6. July 29: 30 Days of Night
7. July 30: The Happening
Except for "Carrie," most of these movies are obviously more recent. In fact, I ain't sure how "Carrie," which is one of my favorites, made it so early as October is "Ringer Month." That means, it's packed every day with movies that I desperately love - and "Carrie" should be among them!
Anyway, please play along online, at home, or feel free to contact me for a personal viewing at home!
Thanks again for reading and I hope to keep you suitably entertained!

- "Y'all know me, know how I earn a livin'. I'll catch this bird for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad fish! Not like going down to the pond and chasing bluegills and tommycods. This shark, swallow ya whole. Little shakin', little tenderizin', and down you go. And we gotta do it quick, that'll bring back the tourists, that'll put all your businesses on a payin' basis. But it's not gonna be pleasant! I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, chief. I'll find him for three, but I'll catch him, and kill him, for ten. But you've gotta make up your minds. If you want to stay alive, then ante up. If you want to play it cheap, be on welfare the whole winter. I don't want no volunteers, I don't want no mates, there's too many captains on this island. Ten thousand dollars for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing."
