Horror Heatwave: Dread Central’s 31-Day Movie Challenge for July 2018!

For many horror fans, Halloween isn’t simply a season or an annual celebration: It’s a way of life. As such, it seems a shame to wait until October to begin some traditional festivities.

Every year, websites, magazines, and TV networks unfurl 31-Day Horror Challenges; they’re a way to communally enjoy the horror genre while passing the hours until October 31st (usually culminating with John Carpenter’s Halloween on Halloween). Well, we’re liberating the 31-Day Horror Challenge from the month October. In fact, we’ve decided to create movie-watching challenges for every month of the year!

The idea is to create unique and inspiring curriculums for the truly devoted; we’ll be incorporating each month’s most anticipated genre releases along with gems that fit a specific theme. Since July is “Horror Heatwave” month at Dread Central, many selections featured in our inaugural monthly Horror Challenge have summer, desert, and vacation themes.

Of course, each challenge will also contain random entries rattled out of the brains of Dread Central’s stable of writers.

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 of every month? If so, feast your eyes on our 31-Day Horror Challenge for July below. Let us know you’re joining in the festivities by using #MonthOfDread on your social accounts when you watch these movies! Good luck and pleasant screams!
