You’ll Be Glad You Stayed Home! Our 366-Day #YearOfDread Horror Challenge Continues with Vacations—From Hell!

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?

June is the official start of Summer, but in the era of COVID-19, this won’t be an avergae season. Many international borders are still closed and social distancing protocols will make travel and vacationing a challenge, fraught with unknown obsticles. That’s why we decided to craft a “Month of Dread” about vacations–from Hell! These will make you happy to stay at home! From international vacations to road trips, slashers to horror comedies, you’ll cover a lot of distance without leaving your home.

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 June’s 30-day horror challenge below. Let us know you’re participating by using the hashtag #YearOfDread2020 on Social Media!

Did your favorite vacation-from-hell horror movie 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.
