    в этот месяц или в этом месяце

    в этот месяц или в этом месяце я буду работать до восьми часов вечера
    Чем больше слов, тем меньше они стоят.

    Hmm, might be But saying в этот месяц in that context is indeed strange.

    В этот месяц я буду работать до восьми часов вечера... Nah, doesn't sound too good.
    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.

    I agree, it sounds strange a little. However it is hard to understand what is wrong.
    Maybe the problem is: "в этот" needs previous context. That is: "В сентябре к нам приедет комиссия. В этот месяц я буду работать до восьми вечера.".
    That is "в этот" doesn't work without context, while "в этом" means "in the current ..." by default.

    Yeah, that's the thing. The proper context does wonders You just need to know how to dissect it properly.

    'В этом месяце' has also meaning 'in current month'. So, if you speaks about current month, 'в этом месяце' would be more precise. If you speaks about some other September - 'в этот месяц' would sound a bit better.

    Либо "в этом месяце", либо "этот месяц" (во втором случае - без "в").
    Налево пойдёшь - коня потеряешь, направо пойдёшь - сам голову сложишь.
    Прямой путь не предлагать!
