Final Day of DVD Talk's "October Horror Movie Challenge 2011"

I’m 2 films away from my goal of 50 films in the month of October. I love DVDTalk and I love this Challenge.

I was super busy this October so my total will probably be less than last year (86) but more than my first year with the Challenge (37).

List of films I’m thinking of ending the Challenge with:

-The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
-Trick ‘r Treat (2007)
-Zombi 2 (1979)
-I Saw The Devil (2010)

Happy Halloween everyone!
