The Thirty Day Horror Challenge, Wopsploitation-Style...

I love a good horror challenge as much as anybody, but everytime I sit down to do one of these challenges, the categories are either too repetitive(serial killers and slashers, occult, supernatural, and Satanism, etc., etc.) or too vague, and seem to bank on the participant-in-question having only seen a sparse handful of movies in their short, miserable lives.I promised one of our avid readers here at Wopsploitation a while back, that I'd whip up a more inclusive horror challenge, with a wider range of categories over the thirty day period, and several cigarettes and Gordon Lightfoot albums on the headphones(I'm kinda mellowed out over here atm, whattayagonnado) later, here you have it.The rules are simple, just pick your favorite horror film for each day. However, you can’t pick the same horror film more than once(Gods forbid, you have to actually think about a few of the categories!).I'm looking forward to see what you all come up with...So let’s get horizontal, baby. This is the 30 Day Horror Film Challenge, Wopsploitation-style!
