The Frightfully Ghoulish Halloween Thread 2011
 
Halloween is super close. I'm stoked! So What's everyone being this year? I've sourced out all the parts I need and if everything will ship in time, I'm going as this:

Undead Jack Scene - An American Werewolf in London Movie (1981) - HD - YouTube

I found the coat and everything

Nice.

As I've gotten older, Halloween has really started to become my favorite holiday, and one of my favorite times of the entire year.

I've sort of just learned to appreciate the whole atmosphere of the holiday, and the season. The weather, the colors, the imagery, the smell of leaves (burnt or not), the cheesy and campy horror movie marathons on TV (I'm excited to see what movies AMC will be showing on their annual "Fear Fest" this year), listening to Halloween themed music, everything.

I think I shared a similar sentiment in your Halloween thread last year, JT. Anyway, it's just awesome. Love, love, love this shit. Probably looking forward to Halloween more this year than I ever have.

All that said, I don't have any fucking clue what my costume will be. If anybody has any cool ideas, I'm all ears.

Like! That's one of my favorite movies. :love:

How much you looking to spend, Gaffer?

I love the old horror movie marathons too. Probably my favourite holiday as well. I'm throwing a party this year. I'm looking forward to spookifying the house

And ya, but the soundtrack is pretty perfect the way it is

Not very much, ha.

Probably somewhere between 20 and 30 bucks, I guess.

Also, I've only seen the first half of American Werewolf In London, but I really enjoyed it. Caught it on TV around Halloween time. Hopefully I can catch the full thing this season.

Hey JT, what are some of the other movies that you watch every Halloween? Can you make a little list or something? I'd be very curious to see what your traditional "must watch" movies are at that time of year. I'm going to try to watch a ton of horror movies this Halloween, and wouldn't mind some suggestions.

That goes for anybody else, as well.

MsPurrl 09-27-2011 10:39 PM

Bram Stoker's Dracula--the one with Gary Oldman as Dracula :love:

Fright Night - the original one, but this year's remake

Reggo 09-27-2011 10:44 PM

Rocky Horror. Have to watch it every Halloween. Same with Ghostbusters (but not the crappy sequel with Peter MacNichol) and The Addams Family (but not the crappy sequel with Peter MacNichol...I'm sensing a trend here...). Halloween is, for me, for watching bad horror films, too. Like Communion with Christopher Walken and the Coppola version of Dracula, stuff that'd be on MST3K if it were still around.

Speaking of, this is what I'll be going as for Halloween.

Been Tish for nearly every Halloween for twenty years. Maybe I'll change things up and go as Wednesday this year.

I usually try to watch some that I havent seen as well, but I try to leave room for

An American Werewolf in London
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original. Might be my favourite pure horror movie)
The Exorcist
Night of the Living Dead
Psycho
28 Days Later
Nosferatu
House of 1000 Corpses

Some of the really old classics are fun to watch too:

Frankenstein
The Mummy
The Wolfman
Creature from the Black Lagoon

Any of the Hammer Horrors

And anything with Vincent Price in it.

I also slip in an episode or two of The Hilarious House of Frightenstein (Maybe only Canadians will remember that show. Was my favourite when I was about 5)

I hang out in FYM from time to time. :wink: I read a lot, I just don't bother to post. This seems like an innocent enough thread for now though.

Anyway, I watched the original TexasCM a few years back when I first starting liking horror. It nearly made me vomit. Not from the gore, but that scene where the girl is stuck in the chair just screaming for minutes and minutes :vomit:
It just got me nauseated. The only other movie to ever get me nauseous is Hostel. The honey mustard eye scene. :yuck:

Other Halloween favorites/films:
The Shining, The Omen, Poltergeist, Pet Semetary as the standards
Shaun of the Dead
Quarantine (I've not seen [REC] yet though)
Four Rooms
White Dog
Hocus Pocus (:dance:)
The Witches
Motel Hell (pretty bad, but a good movie to MST to)
The Island of Dr. Moreau (1997 version, for maximum MST effect)
Troll 2 (even better if paired with Best Worst Movie)

In October I also try to check out as many episodes of "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" on YouTube as possible. It's more of a nostalgia than horror thing.
(Notable eps for me: "The Tale of Laughing in the Dark", "The Tale of the Super Specs", "The Tale of the Full Moon", "The Tale of the Curious Camera", "The Tale of Station 109.1")

on this year's plate: Westworld

The only "Must-Watch" on Halloween for me is the original Nightmare on Elm Street. Everything else pretty much depends on mood/what's on. I fill up on cheesy horror though, that's for sure. I usually try to wait to start til October though, just the (weird) way I am.

However, Friday evening, I will definitely be seeing American Werewolf in London. I'm not sure why I still haven't seen that one.

bono_212 09-28-2011 08:17 PM

Hey, Jive, did you ever get a better picture of your costume from last year? I was always kind of curious to see a full body shot of that one.

bono_212 09-28-2011 09:51 PM

Eh, changed my mind and ended up watching My Soul to Take. Reviewed it in the review thread, but yeah, it does the job.
