Daniel’s Critical Corner: Rise of Halloween Favorites

If It’s Not One Thing, It’s Another !

Hello Everyone !
~ Welcome.  Stay For A Bite ~
Today’s Horrific Hullabaloo: Rise of
Halloween Favorites

Behold the many glorious wonders of autumn !  Blankets of red and orange
leaves now bury cemeteries under ever-waning daylight.  Birds start to look
South beneath an ominous Harvest Moon…  And, even though it’s a bit chilly
outside, you can still place your tongue on a flagpole and not get stuck !

Best of all, Halloween is just around the dark corner…  And I’ve got some
movies listed here guaranteed to give you the heebie-jeebies !!!  Or maybe
just the heaves.

  1. Daniel…!
    I was just sitting here at the pumpkin patch, waiting on the great pumpkin, when I heard the rattling of leaves (or was that the clattering of a keyboard)… and I thought… was that…? was that….? It is! It’s the great pumpkin….! And an eerie moan was heard as a silhouette rose up out of the pumpkins…. but then I fainted…
    My companion was really upset…! She had missed, tricks or treats, and candy and cookies, and all sorts of things… as she proclaimed that all that came was a Critic…!
    Well, I’m still waiting here for the great pumpkin… but in the meantime, as I wait, this awesome list of Halloween films will sincerely lift my spirits shall we say? Great fun as always (your humor is always the perfect potion).
    Happy Halloween 2011…!!!

  2. 🙂 “The Great Critic” will always visit the most sincere comments (when he is not reading his favorite
    Halloween book, “The Pumpkin Dream: A Cautionary Tale from the Library of Mr. Bumble Bindlegrim”) !

  3. Hey Daniel, thanks for visiting Geek Soul Brother. I love your list of scary flicks here. A real mix of the classic and modern. You even put up The Tingler. You know your horror! I have to check out the ones that I didn’t see. Enjoy your Halloween Brother!

  4. I did manage to catch many of these phantasmagorical flicks during October. I actually watched “Visiting Hours” on Halloween (great slasher flick from 1982, starring Lee Grant and William Shatner) !!!

  5. Daniel…

    Some great films here – I’m looking forward to seeing Paranormal Activity 3 after enjoying the first two.

    I was blissfully unaware there was an Amityville 4!
