Daily 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? Well, that’s exactly what we’re doing! On January 1st, we launched our “Year of Dread 2020” and things are just starting to heat up!
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.

This March, we’re celebrating creatures of all shapes and sizes, although we’re limiting our selections to films released in the 21st Century to give this month a sharper focus than the “Monster Madness” challenge was released last March. We’ve got some familiar kaiju you’re sure to recognize, along with all manner of cryptids, homunculi, and Lovecraftian beasties! Some of these menaces probably come from outer space, but we’ve got a month dedicated to Aliens coming soon.
Ask yourself: Are you a horror fan who lives every day like it’s Halloween? 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 March’s 31-day horror challenge below. Let us know you’re participating by using the hashtag #YearOfDread2020 on Social Media!
