Things got a little bit busy here at the Shattered Lens, didn’t they?
Well, it’s to be expected! It’s October and that means that it’s time for our annual Horrorthon! Basically, I spent September resting just so I could make it through this month. (Actually, I spent most of September resting. On September 27th, I posted 18 reviews, just to prove that I still could.) October is totally exhausting but this month, more than anything, reminds me of why I love sharing my thoughts on movies, books, and all the rest. If I can turn you onto a new movie or if I can encourage to give a movie second chance, I feel like I’ve done my work here. We’re only three days in and I already I remember why I love this month, this site, my collaborators, and all of our readers.
Seriously, than you for reading. All of us here at the Shattered Lens hope you enjoy what the site has to offer this October!
Well, it’s been a busy week so let’s get right the recap!
