What's Fatal Attraction doing on that article's list sandwiched between Halloween and Scream??? Glenn Close can't act and she wasn't scary in the least.

Only seen a few of those. Hmm...need to do some catching up in this field, I guess. American Werewolf in London transformation was top notch. I remember that it fascinated, repulsed and horrified me all at the same time when I first saw it as a young'un.

Those were some nice ones. Seen 9 of those movies. Just love Audition. Brought back my youth with a bunch of those. I think I've loved horror movies since I was born.

I consider myself quite fortunate, in my travels this weekend I picked up a three movie deal for $5 ...
Puppet Master 1, 2 and 3.
All for $5!
I love that little puppet, Blade.

Last night ... on a somewhat drinking binge .... =P
I sat down and watched Nosferatu, remastered, with soundtrack provided by Type O Negative.
Really, really enjoyed it!
And today I completed my quest, I purchased Psycho on DVD for a Halloween evening Horror Fest with my BEST FRIEND!!!!
Yes, I will be away for Halloween, visiting my BEST FRIEND!!!

Don't really do Halloween in Britain..
Cheaper to buy the sweets, and rent a couple of dvds than buying the costume, pumpkin etc..

Don't see what all the nonsense is about..

Different strokes for different folks, that's all. Not everyone here in America gets into Halloween either, especially as they get older and have kids and realize how much of a pain in the ass trick' r' treating can be for parents, lol.

I love it though, I always have since I was a kid. I have always been drawn to the darker side of life and Halloween is just the perfect culmination for the things I love. It's not just Halloween though, it's the time of year, I love autumn, the changing colors, the cool air, bonfires, the smell (yes there is a smell to autumn, trust me). That's just me though.

dlsevern,

I'm with you 100% of the way. Halloween has always been my time of year. I love all the aspects you've stated...but particularly dressing up.

Then, it's followed by Christmas. Not the commercial sham that Xmas has become, but the Christmas of the Winnipeg Santa Claus Parade, and breakfast at Eaton's with Punkinhead...

...and sleigh rides, and snow castles, and flooded backyard rinks, and anything that doesn't stink of $ $ $ signs.

Time to howl.

Is that all christmas is for us... and any of the holidays..
Memories of the past..

When the dollar wasn't all conquering... when health and safety, and injury lawsuits didn't have those with snow castles, and ice rink owners quaking in there fur lined boots.

We send the kids out into the neighbourhood for halloween, but never by themselves anymore..and we check the websites to see if somebody has moved into the area.

So why do we always want to recreate our childhood memories..

To give them to our children, who have grown up in a different world to us, and know nothing of a BB gun, the joy of Roy Rogers, and using your own mind to come up with stuff to do, instead of turning to an electronic whojamaflip to sate there fevered mind?

When you could send the kids out for sweets, and not have them come back with apples, and fruit, and money? Or not come back at all.

Where you looked in the department store window at their christmas display, instead of ordering it online.?

Why do grown men still dress up in costumes?
For the fun, for the joy of celebrating it..
Or to grab some sort of coat tail from our past, which we long to go back too..

Sorry, cup is half empty, not half full, and it shouldn't be..

Interesting little Halloween site debunking myths..

I am very much aware of the origins of Halloween and of how Christianity has intertwined itself into those origins and made it something more commercial but I still love it. I'm a sucker for it, lol.

I don't mean to come across as narky to anybody..
It is my thoughts, my views..
Halloween is not for me...

The website was for those that wanted to pass on to this generation..
