March Monster Madness: Dread Central’s 31-Day Challenge for March 2019
It’s been over half a year since we started something new here at Dread Central: Monthly themed horror movie challenges. You know what I’m talking about; those lists of daily genre flicks that are a staple of the Halloween season. We didn’t know why monthly movie challenges were, for the most part, confined to October—especially since horror fans live every day like it’s Halloween!
Our first #MonthOfDread had a Horror Heatwave theme for July. It was followed Aquatic Terrors, Back to School, Every Day is Halloween, November of the Living Dead, The End is Nigh, Winter HorrorLand, and, most recently, we looked at the extremes of adoration with a Horror is for Lovers theme. So, what’s next? Glad you asked!
While sports fans will be consumed by college basketball brackets in the coming week, we’ll try to avoid being consumed by one of the beasts on this list: It’s “March Monster Madness”! We’re featuring monsters large and small, terrestrial and alien, fiends who roam the earth as well as those who inhabit the skies and seas. You’ll also detect sub-themes; we’ve got an entire week of classic Universal monster movies, a week dedicated to Godzilla vs King Kong, and a week of giant creatures. From there, it pretty much descends into actual madness!
The idea is to create unique and inspiring curriculums for the truly devoted, so ask yourself: Are you a horror fan who lives every day like it’s Halloween, too? Do you have the gumption and the stamina to consume a new horror movie every day of every month? If so, feast your eyes on our 31-day horror challenge for March below. Let us know you’re joining in the festivities by using our #MonthOfDread hashtag on social accounts when watching these films!
