Good news she's back at home and appears to have made a good recovery.
Glad She is on the mend Deadite

Default October 31st. Halloween

Arsenic and Old Lace (1944)

Only a second viewing of this Frank Capra classic. This comedy thriller is pure Hollywood gold. A tale of a newly married man who discovers his aunts are of the psychotic variety and insanity and murder run in his family.

Cary Grant, Peter Lorre and the whole cast are outstanding but the acting honours go to a superb Raymond Massey as the murderous cousin Jonathan in a role originally written for Boris Karloff, who incidentally gets more than the odd mention throughout.

Despite being wickedly funny with some real laugh out loud moments the film is also incredibly sinister and atmospheric at times, including a jump scare at a window which really got me.

Highly recommended.

Halloween (1978) / Halloween II (1981)

The ultimate double bill for the 31st of October. Two timeless classics. Despite them being three years apart and different directors (Although John Carpenter added more scares and gore to part II due to changing demand from the slasher audience), in my eyes the films fit like a glove and become one three hour Halloween epic.

See you all next October folks.

I feel like i'm in some sort of alternate reality now the October Halloween-Fest is at an end.

I'm going to have to choose something to watch that doesn't involve carving pumpkins or blokes in Captain Kirk masks...

...How the hell does that work then?

Right on Dem. If I had had the time I would have watched them as a double bill as well. These are my Halloween films and the only ones I am interested in.
