#VundaHalloweenAthon Day 27: "Coolest Chills"

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.

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, not necessarily recommendations since we've never seen some of them) from the team, taken from our own watchlists for today...

Group Pick: 1982's The Thing directed by John Carpenter is one of the greatest horror films ever made. Groundbreaking special effects and gore, a pitch perfect plot (based on John W. Campbell Jr.'s 1938 novella "Who Goes There?" available to read for free here), Kurt Russell with one of the best beards in movie history, a bevy of character actors, and an unforgettable location.
