XXX8 Recap

I started this list in July 2018, and in those 6 months I watched 104 movies from the list. It was definitely a proof of concept for me—I exposed myself to a lot of foreign horror and movies forgotten by the mainstream, and I really enjoyed watching them.

There were two unexpected benefits of using the list: 1) It helped get me past the choice paralysis that often eats up a lot of my time; and 2) Because I’m watching these from a mindset of curiosity, I’m not bothered by “bad” movies—what I came to call the List Immunity. I’m happy to say I never once felt like I’d wasted my time, which otherwise happens when I’m emotionally invested in the expectation of a movie to entertain me.

For now I’ll just post what I watched from 2018’s list; if I want to highlight movies later I’ll do that in separate posts.
