For the third year in a row, I've fallen short of Hooptober completion. Simply too many non-horror movies in theaters plus work's been busy. I still knocked some big ones off my watchlist. Despite my failure I'll still give out my end of marathon superlatives (honorable mentions in parentheses) and eagerly anticipate session nine!
