Circus of Dread: Our 366-Day #YearOfDread Horror Challenge Continues with Clown & Carnival Movies
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 we’re only half-way through!
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 Dread is releasing the extreme cult horror Circus of the Dead on VOD July 14th (followed by a Blu-ray release–for the first time ever!) we decided to make this “Month of Dread” a celebration of creepy clowns, sinister circuses, and killer carnivals! Check out the new trailer and key art below and pre-order your Blu-ray now, HERE.
A man becomes entangled in a deadly morality game when the circus comes to town and a sadistic clown forces him to examine the things in life he takes for granted in the most horrific ways.
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 July’s 31-day horror challenge below. Let us know you’re participating by using the hashtag #YearOfDread2020 on Social Media!
Did your favorite clown/circus/carnival-themed 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.
