    I know! :(
    Sadly, this year has been pretty disappointing. I already picked out next year's movies, and I'm suuuuuper excited.

    Day 31: (2007) Halloween

    The inclusion of the plotline about Michael Myers' early days at the mental asylum is a nod to a plotline added by John Carpenter for the television version of the original. According to Carpenter, when the original film was first sold to television, they demanded added scenes to replace the edited portions of the murder scenes. So Carpenter recalled Donald Pleasence to film scenes of him at the hospital taking care of Michael.

    Did you know the original Halloween ended up being a massive failure in theaters initially?

    It was horrible, and I didn't even get to anything happening, really. Wow.

    Entire month already chosen. Some are dubbed. :) It's either going to be really awesome or really frustrating. Ha

    Day 2: (1960) Black Sunday
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054067/?ref_=tttr_tr_tt

    At the time of release, the film was American International's highest grossing film.

    Other tid-bits:
    * Tim Burton's favorite film.
    * Richard Donner modeled the cemetery scene in The Omen (1976) after the graveyard hound scene.
    * Francis Ford Coppola recreated several scenes in Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992).
    * Mario Bava himself reused some of his sets in his later film Kill, Baby... Kill! (1966).

    Day 3: (1980) Cannibal Holocaust
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078935/?ref_=tttr_tr_tt

    * Thought to be a documentary of real occurrences, the film was once banned in 50 countries. It's considered the goriest film ever made. Even some of the actors didn't know if they were in a real production or a snuff film.

    * The main actors were instructed to stay hidden for a year after the release so that it appeared they were really dead. While their deaths weren't real, all of the animal deaths in the film are. The actor that plays Jack in the film cried after the turtle scene. :pout:

    Day 5: (2007) Frontier(s)
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0814685/

    The film was originally slated to be one of 2007's 8 Films to Die For but was pulled after it received an NC-17 rating from the MPAA.
