No genre puts out more movies every month than the horror genre. Sure, big studio films always take the spotlight, but nearly every Tuesday of the year finds a handful of straight-to-video horror movies hitting store shelves. For any other month, sorting through the myriad of lesser profile releases to find the diamonds in the rough isn't too daunting of a task. When it comes to October releases, however, the sheer volume of new titles can be overwhelming.

With Halloween looming on the horizon, the tenth month of the year naturally finds every film fan with horror movies on the brain. So instead of leaving you to sift through this month's DVDs and Blu-rays, of which there are some 82 odd new releases, we've done the leg work to bring you the highlights. And, yes, you read that figure correctly: there are over 82 horror films new to DVD and Blu-ray this month.
