I have curated a podcast of Halloween-ish songs over at Sidedown: Hallowcast 3. You can subscribe to the podcastóDowncastóby inputting this URL in your iTunes (http://www.sidedown.org/downcast/downcast.xml), or you can just play this particular episode right there on that page. It's a 45 minute mix of creepy and fun horror-themed music, and it's free. So check it out, will you?
8 days to Halloweenn now, and I haven't seen as many scary movies as I'd hoped to yet; there just hasn't been time for it. But here's a few I did catch:
- 30 Days of Night - I really enjoyed this one, and it partially fulfills my craving for more zombie movies, even though it's not a zombie movie. Not only is it a slightly different take on vampires, but the location was intriguing. Vampires in the freezing cold in the far distant north? What's not to like?!
- Rosemary's Baby - Never had seen this before. Pretty freaky, impressive for 1968.
- Rose Red - I'd seen this before when it first aired on TV years ago. It's so full of awesome visuals and sets, and even has a decent plotline and some good characters. But like most haunted house or ghost movies, it suffers from a convolution of ambiguous and arbitrary ghost powers which sort of degenerates into an illogical conclusion. I still enjoy watching it, though.
Pretty soon I want to Netflix The Real Ghostbusters. I miss those cartoons.
Seen anything interesting this month?
