Horror Movie Calendar

I'm a genre fan at heart and the core of that heart is the horror genre, so I've wanted to do a year long horror project for a while.

What I came up with was the Horror Movie Calendar. So many horror movies are set on holidays (Halloween is merely the most obvious) that I wondered which holidays didn't have their own horror movie. I did some research and found some fascinating titles, not necessarily all good but all fascinating, that spread across the calendar year.

Each of the reviews below was posted in 2017 on the holiday on which its film was either entirely or, at least, predominantly set. I look mostly at the film, of course, but also the holiday and see how well the two tie together.

Over the year, the list is rather varied, by era and tone and culture, not all of these being American movies. I've also tried to avoid

I hope you choose to celebrate 2017 with me by enjoying the Horror Movie Calendar.
