#VundaHalloweenAthon Day 25: "Spooky & Spiritual"


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. Today, watch a movie with religious, theological, and/or spiritual themes.  

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 we have gathered from the other side. 

Group Pick: La Llorona (2019) directed by Jayro Bustamante is a haunting and complex ghost story that mixes the horrors of the real world with that of the great beyond.

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 "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.
