#VundaHalloweenAthon Day 1: "Fear the Unknown"

Welcome to Day 1 of our #VundaHalloweenAthon 

The 1st theme of the month is "Fear the Unknown." The rules are simple: watch a film you have never seen before. 

It might be an oldie you just never got around to seeing or something from a fresh young filmmaker who you haven't given a chance yet. The sky is the limit and bonus Pumpkin Points if you watch more than one movie a day on theme!

Here are a few recommendations (well, maybe not exactly recommendations since we've never actually seen them) from the team, taken from our own watchlists for today...

Group Pick: Malignant (directed by James Wan) is available on HBO Max for Halloween 2021 and it is a must-watch! The film has deeply polarized audiences for the past few weeks since its release, so if you haven't seen it yet, now's the perfect time!

D-Rock: 
-28 Days Later (2002) directed by Danny Boyle - 1h 53m - Amazon Prime
-Insidious (2010) directed by James Wan - 1h 43m - Netflix
-Re-Animator (1985) directed by Stuart Gordon - 1h 26m (2h w/ Joe Bob Briggs Commentary) - Shudder
-Train to Busan (2016) directed by Yeon Sang-ho - 1h 58m (2h 33m w/ Joe Bob Briggs Commentary) - Shudder




Stephen & Dani: 
-Pledge (2018) directed by Daniel Robbins - 1h 18m - Hulu
-Found (2012) directed by Scott Schirmer - 1h 43m - Shudder
-Homewrecker (2020) directed by Zach Gayne - 1h 16m - Shudder

Our official #VundaHalloweenAthon art was done by Josh Stifter who is not only an artist but a filmmaker. If you subscribe to his Flush Studios Patreon you can access great behind the scenes content. He has two feature length films: The Good Exorcist is a comedic horror film made for $7000 under the supervision of Robert Rodriguez available on TromaNOW (perfect for "Fear the Unknown" day or "Spooky & Spiritual" day) or ask Josh about Greywood's Plot a film about friendship and cryptids, which is touring the world at film festivals. Josh also has tons of great horror shorts we might be recommending later in the month.
