No photo today, but lots of other goodies. First, let’s kick off the annual tradition and watch “This Is Halloween” (and download the song, if you like):
The Citizens of Halloween – This Is Halloween
Here’s a tiny snippet of my favorite episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, “Hush.” About half of “Hush” is filmed without any of the actors speaking at all; the creatures you see in this clip, the Gentlemen, have stolen the voices of everyone in town. This episode is terrifically creepy.
A scene from Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow; the fog, the haystacks, and the scarecrows all make for perfect Halloween ambiance. Oh, and of course, the beheading too.
Kay Starr – The Headless Horseman
Just for kicks, Large Marge:
The first eight minutes of Jeepers Creepers, which manages to pull off being pretty disturbing (language warning).
A true (well, the legends have been told for years, anyway) story about a possibly possessed doll in a Florida museum:
Or you could watch the entire two seasons of a great show about a group of Grim Reapers called Dead Like Me.
A couple last songs:
Bobby Pickett & The Cryptkickers – Monster Mash (I just don’t have it in my heart to ignore it.)
And from the movie named for the day,
John Carpenter – Halloween theme
And a radio ad for the movie.
Thanks for coming by and commenting all month, everyone! I hope your Halloween is a happy one, full of candy and jack o’ lanterns and neighbors with kickass yard haunts and spooky movies.
I will leave you with It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown in it’s entirety, over three parts.
