October Is the Scariest Month

Or the corniest, or both. In something like an annual tradition, the Two Boots Pioneer theater devotes the month of October to classic creep-out cheapies and more recent D.I.Y. gorefests. Thus, “Schlocktober”, this year’s name for the monthlong Halloween parade. Things skew heavily towards stuff made this century, with a couple too-tawdry-to-be-cult favorites from years past, a few acts of toxic vengeance from Troma, and a midnight screening of Night of the Living Dead on Halloween itself. This is I guess a heads-up event post, though I have no idea whether any of this appeals to the (hypothetical) thelmagazine.com reader or not. But it’s nice to know it’s there, playing movies called Trailer Park of Terror and Bikini Bloodbath and Splatter Disco to diehard audiences, because really now.
