Intergalactic #horrorctober: 13 flicks to be scrutinized before Halloween

#horrorctober is this year's Halloween universal Twitter hashtag for the movie community. It's October. Arcane Halloween traditions. Like every year on my blog Intergalaktische Filmreisen anything is devoted to the eerie and macabre. This year, the number 13 is put in the limelight. First, as decided on Twitter, we will pick 13 movies not yet explored to watch until Halloween. I singled out 13 feature films I have on DVD, Blu-ray and even (one) VCD. Some of them are rather new in my collection, others have been passed over for years. If I will comment live on Twitter and/or will be reviewing selected pictures, I will decide in the heat of the moment. Make sure to look out for #horrorctober anyhow to keep track of anything fellow moviebuffs chuse to be in vogue until Hallows Eve!
