ShezCrafti's 31 DVDs of Halloween

Well folks, Halloween is here and my 31 DVDs of Halloween countdown has come to an end. I thought it would be a good idea to compile a master list of all the DVDs I featured for easy reference because, you know, I’m considerate like that and stuff. It was grueling work, but I had a lot of fun showing off my collection and carefully choosing from among my hundreds of Halloween and horror DVDs only the very best* Halloween movies and shows. I tried to make it a good mix of horror, family-friendly fare, obscure TV specials, stuff with great soundtracks, and good old fashioned Halloween fun. I hope you enjoyed it!

*according to my own personal opinion, which is clearly the only one that matters around here

I’m sure you can’t help but notice that four of the above DVDs (#27 – 30) are missing in action. I had a pretty rough week last week and had to take a couple of days off, and simply ran out of time. Thanks to Hurricane Sandy, I was also completely without power for two straight days and have been playing catch-up. However, I do plan to finish those posts, even if it means publishing them after Halloween, so that future visitors will stumble upon this awesome list and be filled with overwhelming gratitude for all the trouble I have gone to and be amazed at how great my taste is (because that will totally happen, right?). I’m not going to beat myself up too badly for being late with them, considering I just survived the week from hell.

Lesson learned: the scariest Halloween show of all is real life.
