31-day horror movie challenges are a staple of the Halloween season, but would you dare attempt a 366-day challenge? Why, you’d have to be insane to attempt such a feat, right?
Dread Central liberated the 31-day horror challenge from October with monthly, themed horror movie challenges back in the summer of 2018. Our ongoing mission: To create unique and inspiring curriculums for the truly devoted. You can check out our previous “Months of Dread” by following the links below.

For 2020, we’ll be continuing our monthly, themed horror movie challenges under a new moniker; get ready for an entire Year of Dread! 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 for an entire year? If so, feast your eyes on January’s 31-day horror challenge below.
The theme for the month: The Best Horror Movies of 2019! Let us know you’re participating by using the hashtag #YearOfDread2020 on Social Media!
