It's here!! It's here!!!
October!!! Halloween!!! CANDY!!!!
Let the mayhem and fun begin!!
Okay, so maybe it's exciting just for me or for the chosen few that enjoy a little chill down their spine and a little more nip in the air. I love October, it signals the beginning of every thing I hold dear. The cooler weather, the changing of the leaves, carving pumpkins, and the horror movie marathons of the classics, The Wolfman, The Mummy and the original Dracula that are being offered on more and more television stations each year.
Yes, sweet dreams of made of these….or perhaps nightmares.
I am also really excited about the new movies that are coming up this month, the new Dracula Untold movie (those just never get old for me), Horns, a supernatural thriller staring Daniel Radcliffe as a suspected killer, Ouija, a spooky flick featuring the undead, and for those familiar with the The Conjuring demon extractors the Warrens, Annabelle which I still can't tell if it has anything to do with the actual story (the "real" Annabelle is actually an oversized Raggedy Ann doll) but it looks scary as hell nonetheless. Okay, these trailers all gave me the willies as I was posting them, even with daylight streaming in through the blinds...
Two Stephen King film adaptations from his Full Dark, No Stars book of short stories are coming out this month as well. One for the big screen, A Good Marriage and one for the Lifetime channel (known more for its bark than its bite) Big Driver which looks to be excellent, at least if the trailer is any indication.
Another novel to film adaptation is the thriller Gone Girl based on the novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn. It stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. The novel was excellent and I am hoping the movie lives up to its reputation.
All set? Remote handy? Popcorn popped?
Okay then, let's settle in, shall we?
Grab something warm to drink, you choose your poison, light a fire, and slip under the throw on the couch or curl up in your movie theater recliner, and hold tight to your honey.
Even a man who is pure in heart,
and says his prayers by night...
may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms,
and the autumn moon is bright...
