Shocktober 2017


Welcome to the official schedule for the third annual Shocktober! For the uninitiated, Shocktober is an October family tradition, a month-long celebration of the Halloween spirit with 31-days of Halloween-themed film. This year's lineup is our biggest yet: 37 films from three continents representing almost 60 years of film history. And as always, the line up includes a little something for everyone to enjoy, no matter how brave or squeamish.

Below you'll find our family's Shocktober list complete with notes on the cheapest ways to watch. You can also find the list in calendar form with more complete rental notes here. For those of you with a Letterboxd account, I've created a Shocktober 2017 List to make it easy to follow along and add films to your profile.

About half the films on this year's list are available via some streaming service; the rest are available as digital rentals from various platforms. If you want to celebrate Shocktober but want to avoid spending, you can always use sites like Just Watch to find streaming substitutes. Have fun and remember: screaming is the reason for the season!
