Happy Halloween!

This is Halloween this is Halloween, pumpkins scream in the dead of night! This is Halloween everybody make a scene trick-or-treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright!

One of my favorite days of the year!

In honor of this wonderful holiday and for my last blog in this 31 Days of Halloween series, I am going to review John Carpenters Halloween (of course).

This was one of my favorite movies as a kid because it always creeped me out so much. There is just something about not seeing the eyes of someone that really freak me out.

Plus this movie has such an iconic theme song to it.

Now for any Star Trek fans out there if the mask of Michael Meyers looks vaguely familiar it is because the props department used a Captain Kirk mask. They painted it white, teased out the hair, and enlarged the eye holes.

Apparently there is a very rare novelization of this movie that delves deeper into Michael's background. Click Here to see it listed on Amazon for $300. If you want to get me something for Christmas, this will do nicely.

I remember seeing the sequel; Halloween II when I was younger and the opening song Mr Sandman creeped me out immensely. There is just something about pairing old time music to a horror movie that is just perfectly creepy.

Oh and look what popped up on my Facebook page courtesy of An alternate opening to the movie! If you'd like to read the full article and see the video (there is no sound on it FYI) click here.

IMDB rates this a 7.9 out of 10 stars and Rotten Tomatoes gives it 94% with an audience approval rating of 85%. I am giving this 4 out of 5 skulls, really great movie, scary and creepy, but could use just a touch more blood.

Well I hope you all enjoyed reading my reviews and that some of them may have piqued your interest to see a new movie or re-watch and old favorite.
Have a fantastic Halloween everyone!

Sleep tight and don't let the zombies bite!
