It’s that time once more to celebrate all things scary from the big screen to the small screen. I’m talking about horror movies. Just like with Star Wars launching me into scifi-geekdom there was one movie in the horror genre that had the same impact – HALLOWEEN. I’m not talking about the remake by Rob Zombie but the true original one by director John Carpenter.
I was 11 when I saw Halloween in theater. Mind you, this was a rated R movie my father took me, which now that I am a father, I would not do this to my own children until they are late into their teens. (What was the old man thinking?) However, from that moment one, I was turned onto reading Fangoria and Famous Monsters mags along with my Starlog. The 80’s had some terrific movies that I will revisit on my upcoming podcast for Halloween.
This leads me to ask for your help, sort of. Leave me a comment or two about your favorite horror movies and why. I’ll promise to read on my podcast. So, share your thoughts and let the scary fun…BEGIN.
