Alamo Drafthouse is celebrating October with 31 Days of Horror – Here’s the full list


Preston Barta // Features Editor

DALLAS-FORT WORTH – Oh to be a horror movie fan in the first stretch of fall. From now until Halloween we will see a few spooky titles fit to release during the month of October – such as WRINKLES THE CLOWN (Oct. 4), LITTLE MONSTERS (Oct. 8), THE ADDAMS FAMILY (Oct. 11), ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP (Oct. 18) and THE LIGHTHOUSE (Oct. 18).

If that’s not enough to wet your whistle, gore-hounds and blood-bathers are in for a busy and exciting month with the Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas in Dallas-Forth Worth hosting a 31-day series of horror movies.

The restaurant and movie theater chain will play at least one scary (or horror-adjacent) feature each day of October. Additionally, there will be special guests making appearances, movie parties, cereal parties (I recommend this one), double features and opportunities for you to geek out over horror films classic and new.

For more information on where and when you catch catch these titles, visit Alamo Drafthouse DFW’s Drafthouse of Horrors webpage, where you can purchase your tickets.

The following screenings will play in the Dallas-Fort Worth area:

Preston Barta

Hello, there! My name is Preston Barta, and I am the features editor of Fresh Fiction and senior film critic at the Denton Record-Chronicle. My cinematic love story began where I was born: off planet on the isolated desert world of the Jakku system. It's there I passed the time scavenging for loose parts with my good friend Rey. One day I found an old film projector and a dusty reel of the 1975 film JAWS. It rocked my world so much that I left my kinfolk in the rearview (I so miss their morning cups of green milk) to pursue my dreams of writing about film. It wasn't long until I met two gents who said they would give me a lift. I can't recall their names, but one was an older man who liked to point a lot and the other was a tall, hairy fella. They got me as far as one of Jupiter's moons where we crossed paths with the U.S.S. Enterprise. Some pointy-eared bastard said I was clear to come aboard. He saw that I was clutching my beloved shark movie and invited me to the "moving pictures room" where he was screening the 1993 film JURASSIC PARK to his crew. He said my life would be much more prosperous if I were familiar with more work by the god named Steven Spielberg. From there, my love for cinema blossomed. Once we reached planet Earth, everything changed. I found the small town of Denton, TX, and was welcomed into the Barta family. They showed me the writings of local film critic Boo Allen. He became my hero and caused me to chase a degree in film and journalism. After my studies at graduate of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, I met some film critics who showed me the ropes and got me into my first press screening: 2011's THE GREEN LANTERN. Don't worry; I recovered just fine. MAD MAX: FURY ROAD was only four years away.
