I believe in a universe that doesn't care, and people that do.


Moonlight blooms as day grows slight
Clouds are shifting, changing skies
Into darkness, into night
Through the forest, left or right?
Is it truth or just more lies?
Moonlight blooms as day grows slight
Black and purple shroud your sight
You could follow plaintive cries

Into darkness, into night
Which is dark and which is light?
Which path is your soulís demise?
Moonlight blooms as day grows slight
Grasping tendrils hold you tight
Clutching shadows drag their prize
Into darkness, into the..




Welcome one and all, to the official Scream Scream thread for this October. What started as a way to celebrate Halloween with a few online friends has grown into a yearly tradition that I want to share with everyone. If you love horror movies and the season of the witch even half as much as I do, or if you just want to hang out with some goons and watch movies this October, you'll fit right in. Now, let me explain how this works.

Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday for all of October, at 8:30 EST, I'll be streaming two horror films a night, along with some other light halloween-themed entertainment to break it up. The stream is hosted here and sometimes here if something goes wrong. That's 24 horror movies total! And you can chat with goons in the official Scream Stream discord while you watch!

Every Scream Stream has its own Scream Theme, and this year the theme of the films shown will be: films hated by critics. All the films reviewed poorly on release, or at the very least were hated by Siskel/Ebert. What else is new for the genre, right?


Reviewing horror can be a dangerous job

The usual disclaimer applies that I haven't seen everything I'll be streaming, so surprises are in store for all of us. I'll also be showing something after the second movie for you night owls.

But there's more to the Scream Stream than watching awesome horror movies with your favorite goons! We also have prizes! What kind of prizes? Well how's about :



Every single Friday night, you'll have your chance to enter a raffle to win a pizza the following night, to enjoy while you watch your movies! You have to tune in for the details, and the rules are slightly different this year. The only thing tastier than pizza is pizza you don't have to pay for! Here are some satisfied winners from the past:



On a more personal note, I'm really thankful to everyone who participates in this yearly tradition. This year has been really, really hard for everyone who isn't a billionaire, so I hope this small goon tradition can help uplift some spirits, even for a short while. Horror is scary, but not as scary as real life sometimes...

I've been waiting for this something fierce. As my fiance says, Scream Stream makes it really feel the season's here. He admitted that when it's over, he misses it.

Butt first, let's
check the feeds.



Every year I say I want to take part in this and every year I just never do, but this year is different! The Director's Tourney and Deb have really made me appreciate the whole streaming thing, get used to it, and streamline how to do it comfortably. So I really do think I'm in this year.

Maybe two weeks ago I walked outside and smelled the crisp air and I knew fall was coming. And I immediately thought that means it's the season for the Scream Stream.

I love this time of year.

You're a true gentleman for hosting what's sure to be another fantastic scream stream, Lurd. This is I think my fourth year. Always look forward to it, but especially this year is appreciated as a distraction from the hell year that is 2020. Cheers man!
