For many of us at Other Worlds, October is our favorite month - and for good reason! The weather is finally getting comfortable in Austin, we are only a mere couple months away from the festival, and of course we get to celebrate horror all month long! Plus, we have been gifted with a Friday, the 13th in October this year. Double the holiday fright night FTW! If you are like us, there are many haunts happening in Austin that we are looking forward to attending, but be sure to carve out some time for the latest SciFi and Horror streaming additions. I know for me personally, I like to watch one horror film a day to properly dive into and pay homage to the spirit of the month. Will you join me? Live deliciously, y’all!
