October Horror Fest

All of the horror movies I've watched this month of October(2012),in the order I've watched them, counting down to the 31st when I will watch John Carpenter's Halloween. Most of these I've never seen and almost all are available on Netflix/Crackle/Hulu/Amazon Prime so these are straight-to-video badness...but there have been a few good ones.
