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.

Since April kicks off with a day dedicated to practical jokers, we decided to make this a month of horror comedies–no fooling! We figured we could all use some levity these days, what with self-quarantine and social distancing becoming the norm. Hopefully, these flicks will keep you in pleasant spirits as we look forward to warmer, safer days. I’ve restricted my selections to horror-comedies released in the 21st Century, just to keep things focused and (for the most part) current.
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 April’s 30-day horror challenge below. Let us know you’re participating by using the hashtag #YearOfDread2020 on Social Media!
Did your favorite 21st Century horror-comedy make the list? Let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram! You can also carry on the convo with me personally on Twitter @josh_millican.
