Halloween is just around the corner

September 14, 2009

So, Halloween is right around the corner and I need to get to work deciding what, if any, the theme of this year’s Halloween movie marathon will be. Last year it was Frankenstein’s Monster (mostly). Of course other movies worked their way into the mix, thanks to our Tivo, Overlord.

I’m leaning towards werewolves. Or possibly haunted houses. No zombie or vampires – been there, done that.

Maybe I’ll do a movie-a-day for the entire month of October and allow for multiple themes. I’ll be at a conference for a few days, but it’s about the state of the music industry, radio, and telecom & internet policy so it will be rather like watching horror movies every day. Also have a daytrip to DisneyWorld for mom’s birthday. Some would argue that in itself is pretty horrific, but I’m looking forward to it. Plus, I do so love the Haunted Mansion. We went to Disney a lot when I was growing up (got to do something with the parade of visiting relatives) so I pretty much have a photographic mental map of the ride, and yet I still love it. I suppose this would be a good occasion to finally watch The Haunted Mansion, I’ve never gotten around to it.

Well, what do you think? Werewolves? Ghosts? I was going to post an actual poll but everyone one I installed had a glitch of one kind or another and time was slipping away. You can vote in the comments.

Movies about artists do not count as horror movies, no matter how many emails you send me :-)

Ghosts…and I don’t mean Casper.

The “Haunted House” genre allows for more
interesting variations, although the “Under-
world” series has its charms. How about only
silent horror flicks? “Nosferatu”, “Cabinet of
Dr. Caligeri” fer example. I have a small
collection of WW2 themed horror flicks available(Below, The Keep, The Bunker).

I was just blogging that I’d chosen haunted houses when you left your comment. See the new post to see the awesome object I got in the mail.
