Did you know October was named for the number 8 back when it was the 8th month? But then an accident during an early temporal distortion experiment created two new months at the start of every year, and things have been out of whack ever since. (Don’t trust what the history books tell you about why the calendar changed.) So we thought about giving you Top Eights for Former Month 8, but then we’d have had to leave out the breast check which came in at #10 on the non-review list. October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, you know.
At actionflickchick.com, October saw the conclusion of Arnold Fest 2009 (which had spilled over from September because a single month can’t contain a Schwarzenegger), zombies, ghosts, demons, more zombies, an assortment of other spooky treats, and plenty of action along the way. Stuntwoman Luci Romberg gave me behind-the-scenes pics from Zombieland and Ninja Warrior, author Steve Niles gave me the heads-up on the first day of shooting for the motion picture 30 Days of Night 2: Dark Days, and Wildride Robert Roy gave me my own theme song.
