Welcome to Day 29 of our #VundaHalloweenAthon  The 29th theme of the month is  "I Know What You Did in the 90's."  Bust out the flannel because today we're watching a movie from the 1990's (or the 1890's I guess but that's probably not as fun). We enjoyed our 80's day today is equally as special because we were alive for this whole decade. Here are a few recommendations from our childhood, taken from our own watchlists for today... Group Pick: Blair Witch Project (1999) directed by Eduardo Sanches, and Daniel Myrick is a once in a century type of horror movie and it ended the 90's and kicked off the last 20 years of horror. This film has been emulated by many but still remains a one of a kind original. What better way to celebrate spooky season by getting lost in the woods with this classic film.  D-Rock: - I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) directed by Jim Gillespie - 1h 41m - Amazon Prime, Peacock - The People Under the Stairs (1991) direc

Welcome to Day 27 of our #VundaHalloweenAthon  The 27th theme of the month is  "Coolest Chills."  This is essentially a day for movies that take place in the cold or have elements of cold, winter, etc. Of course, we once again leave what that means up to your interpretation.

Welcome to Day 25 of our #VundaHalloweenAthon  The 25th theme of the month is  "Spooky & Spiritual."  There may be no genre of film that deals more in themes of religion, theology, and spirituality and often horror movies have some very unique and interesting takes.
