The annual IMDB Horror Board October Challenge is the most epic of epic challenges. Every October, the most dedicated horror-boarders watch one horror film for each day of October, 16 of which must be first time views. We post our progress on the official thread (www.imdb.com/board/bd0000024/nest/171248370 ), and some post their reviews on their own progress thread. I'll be posting my reviews here, just in case a troll decides to start deleting my posts.

Another great thing about Otis is that the characters actually make pretty good decisions. For once, I didn't yell at the screen telling the characters what to do. And the end, the end is just superb. It's essentially a more light-hearted Last House on the Left
I recommend Otis to everybody, especially those new to the horror genre.

Ginger Snaps (2000, John Fawcett) - 8/10
"Out by sixteen or dead at the scene, but together forever. United against life as we know it."
- This film takes the idea that menstruating women are monsters quite literally.
Ginger Snaps: Unleashed (2004, Brett Sullivan) - 8/10
"It only dies if you do."
- This one takes place almost immediately after Ginger Snaps.
Ginger Snaps Back (2004, Grant Harvey) - 7/10
"Kill the boy, or one sister kills the other."
- This is where the timeline of the trilogy gets a bit strange because, essentially, this story is about Ginger and Brigitte, but it occurs in the early 1800s. I like to think of it as a standalone film that just so happens to be about the same two girls.
