October marches on, and so does our countdown to All Hallows Eve. This year, rather than trying to do a full 31 film reviews or something truly time-consuming like that, most of what I’m going to be posting are favorite trailers, short films, some full-length movies, and other items just to kind of help get everyone in the spirit of what really is one of my favorite holidays.
Every once in awhile, a movie sneaks up and surprises you. The Ruins was one of those movies for me. It’s not a masterpiece, but it’s solid and does deserve to be seen by more people than it seems to have been. I’m not going to say much more about it, because I don’t want to spoil any of the surprises that it holds, but I will suggest that you search it out and give it a chance. I think you might like what you find.
How about you? What other underrated/overlooked gems would you suggest for Halloween viewing? Let me know either in the comments below, or over on the Durnmoose Movies Facebook page which can be found here.
