31 Days of Horror Movies

Tonight, I made the perfect recipe for embracing the end of summer and the beginning of fall: Roasted Sweet Potato Quinoa Salad. Before I sat down to eat it, I searched for something to watch on Netflix as per usual. The first thing I saw was An Interview with the Vampire at the top of my list. I added it a week or two ago but had not rewatched it yet. Tonight felt like the perfect time to see it again for some reason. It also gave me the idea to put together a list (you know I like lists) of my favorite and new horror (although I'm still not sure Anne Rice falls into the horror category) movies to watch over the next month.

After putting this list together, I realized I'm lacking when it comes to horror movies. I was surprised at how many of the classics I've never seen. I blame this on the fact that I know the twist or gimmick in most of them, which made me feel like there was no point. I will correct this hefty gap in my knowledge throughout October, though.
