Let's Get Out of Here! wishes you all a crazy mad
I started my October 31st with the last run of horror programming that started on October 1st. I have some crappy cellphone shots from the movies.
|First up - 1977's Spawn of the Slithis|
|Second was 2008's Trailer Park of Terror|
Next up a random Halloween shot I saw today that made me smile -
Then some lunch where the waitresses come to work in costume - ahh, Jasmine...
|And how 'bout that shirt I'm sporting? Yes, I am in this picture.|
A stop at my favorite used DVD store - Moviestop - added some new flicks to the video vault - including Zombie on Blu-Ray! Huzzah!
Then it was back to the film festival:
|2008's Midnight Movie.|
Then I saw another cool Halloweeny photo I liked:
|2011's Killer Eye: Halloween Haunt was next.|
Then another funny photo:
Next up was some dinner, and although I didn't think I would be this year, after dinner I pulled out a butcher knife worthy of Michael Myers and made this happen:
|Camera flash off...|
|Camera flash on...|
Finally, I settled in with the last movie of the month's all horror-fest:
|2010's The Wolfman.|
We didn't get a lot of trick-or-treaters - I'd say 15-18 kids across 6 or 7 groups. I have scads of candy left over.
We finished out Halloween night dropping by my buddy Ray's house for a moment to see his terrific scary setup all over his yard and in the windows of his two story house. This includes at least three skeletons, two full size figures, a coffin, a fog machine, lights, and Ray himself, decked out in a creepy caped Ghoul Man getup that must be pretty effective when he looms out of the dark at you as you approach his house. Here's a couple of pics of what he had up in his yard:

41 movies (15 repeat viewings), 6 TV episodes. Not too shabby. I also read only horror - a few books, and some House of Mystery comics.
It feels weird not needing to have a post ready for tomorrow - I think I'll take a day or two off - probably next posting Saturday with a poster/trailer combo as usual.
Until then, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
