Yup. It was a valiant try alright. At the start I was worried I wasn't going to make it and I top loaded my viewing schedule with double bills for the upcoming October days when I knew I wasn't going to be able to see any horror films. However I did fall off the wagon, but in my defense, it is in part because so much of my job involves watching horror films in a professional capacity. And then of course, I spent the end of the month hosting a series of horror classics in 35mm on the big screen in the presence of a true master of horror, so I think in some respects, I served out the end of the 31 days in the spirit above and beyond.
