Halloween Movie Update

Thursday, October 09, 2008
Quick note on the Interview series...it's still continuing. I just haven't had a chance to finish sending out the questions to a few more of you. Trying to find the time/creative energy to do it has been a bit of a challenge but never fear! I'm working on it. I think I have three or four more interviews to go in this round so stay tuned. Now, onto Halloween!

We've narrowed our movie list down to the following:
El Orfanato (The Orphanage)
The Sixth Sense
Hocus Pocus
The Amityville Horror
The Fog (The original...scary stuff)
Halloween (again, the original)
Nightmare on Elm Street

As you can see, with the exception of the first three, I've gone for a retro-scary theme. Very 70's and early 80's. Now, we won't get to all of them obviously - probably just two or three given neither of us are night owls. The plan at this point is to throw all the names in a hat, draw them out and give ourselves heart attacks as we watch them in the dark with all the ghouls, ghosts and ghoblins running around outside.

Muchos gracias to all who left suggestions on the earlier post. There were certainly some great choices. The admiral absolutely put her foot down and said NO! to The Exorcist, The Changeling, and a couple of other ones which certainly make me want to sleep with the lights on. Maybe next year....

What is everyone else doing this year for Halloween?

For me - it's going to be 28 Days Later, followed by 28 Weeks Later. Scary, scary, scary!

The Orphanage is such a good film! Now I want to see it again.

It's going to be a quiet Hallowe'en, as we are throwing a big blowout party the next night. Are you busy?

I haven't thought about Halloween yet. We get zero kids here so it'll be scary movie night. I usually like to watch a classic as well such as Nosferatu, Psycho or Halloween.
You've inspired me though and now I'm thinking we should select several movies and choose from a hat or maybe we can attach the names to apples and bob for them. Why is bobbing for apples associated with Halloween anyway?

Hmmmm how about 'Elvira' -just for a laugh?

The Orphanage is excellent. I think I might re-watch it this Halloween. Another goodie I just remembered a few days ago is "Session 9". More psychological than gory, my favourite kind of horror.

SME said...

Oh, and for recent comedy-horror you can't beat "Teeth"! Vagina dentata. It's hilarious, in a very warped way.

"Christine" is hilarious. There's a character who looks like an 80s style Danny Zuko and a the car drives down the street while it's on fire! What more could one want?
