Hello, everyone! Welcome to SCARE-A-THON 2020, with all donations benefiting BOXVILLE.ORG

As always, the official October Horror Movie Challenge is to watch 31 horror movies in 31 days, 16 of which have to be First Time Views (FTV). This year, however, in honor of the 10th anniversary of the Scare-A-Thon (and with the assistance of some tech-savvy friends), we decided to step up our game a little: 

Tonight will mark the first of five, count’ em, five Friday Night Frights livecasts on YouTube, sponsored by Ian Simmons and Kicking the Seat. This week, Ian, Bryan, and AC, along with special guests (YES, WE HAVE SPECIAL GUESTS) Lee Shoquist and Jon Kitley, celebrate the 40th anniversary of Lucio Fulci’s splatterpiece, City of the Living Dead, better known by horror fans of a certain age as The Gates of Hell

The fun starts at 7:15pm CST, and if you can’t watch in real time, not to worry! This is the World Wide Web and it will be there forever (ever, ever, ever, ever, ever…) 


Now, with those five nights (and corresponding films) spoken for, there were 26 other features to find for the month. Oh. Wait. 26 movies? Aren’t there also 26 letters in the English Language?????

Yes, you guessed it. This year, we will be watching A-Z!

Stay tuned to see how the madness unfolds.

Back to the flicks!!! Hope to see you online tonight and every Friday in October. And keep stopping by for our daily updates and reviews. It’s going to be a good month, I guarantee it.

If you are interested in participating in SCARE-A-THON 2020, drop me a line at and we'll put you on the roster!
