The ER staff loved it, especially after the Charge Nurse heard that I wasn't the one that covered up the patient's face, as well as the cop pulling OT as security at the ambulance door. Even when transferring the patient the staff kept speaking like Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi My partner couldn't stop talking about Halloween for the rest of shift-- her son's three now, so she can start doing some of the festivities again. With this little piece of guerrilla theater, I am totally in the mood for Halloween again.
Others start earlier than I do, Ben Lathrop, that's Hepcat, is concentrating on vampires this year. Charrl's, Charlie Fleming, Screamzine channel is horror 24-7-365 and is available on ROKU. I am especially digging the "Gravebit" series on the Screamzine channel.Boyer's (I really do like butterscotch and peanut butter cups) and B&W movies for the hordes of uncultured kids these days. A bit more privately, I intend on indulging in some movies just for Peryton and me, maybe Caed or Batman when they stop in over the next few weeks. Here's the selection I am thinking of for this year done in countdown fashion for drama:
10. Blackula ('72)- moving from Hammer Horror films that I did last year into the exploitive 70s.
9. Frankenstein 1970 ('58 actually) - don't let anybody fool you, the 70s have no exclusive deal on exploitative horror flix.
8. Alien (1979)- Would you believe that I've only read the book?
7. Cat People ('42)- Haven't seen it yet.
6. Cat People ('82)- Only heard the song.
5. Creature from the Black Lagoon ('54)- Gotta get a bit of classic onto this list
4. Prince of Darkness ('85)- Peryton's choice
3. Hellraiser II ('88)- Peryton's choice
2. Blade the TV Series ('o6)- I'm in love with the receptionist.
1. Hellraiser ('87)- A movie that set the tone for those that followed it.
