Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2009

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:

And if this whetted your appetite for spooky viewing, Hulu has a selection of movies and tv episodes up on its Huluween pages. (I recommend Vincent Price in Tales of Terror or Carnival of Souls.)

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.
