What We Watched In October

Sorry that I've been so busy, my friends! I've been toiling away on my horror fiction novel and editing Cinema Sommanbulist: The Book so much that I didn't post any of my wife LeEtta's and my October viewing. It was a great month for spooky Halloween type stuff and we had a great time. My new catchphrase, "Rum says yes!", was born during this fine month.

So here are the Halloween movies and TV specials that we watched all month long...

October 1st:

"Halloween Crazy"

The Addams Family (1991)

The Worst Witch

"SpongeBob SquarePants: Scaredy Pants”

October 2nd:

"Halloween's Most Extreme"

Alien - Blu-ray provided by Brad; thanks, Brad!

"The Haunted History of Halloween"

"Tricked Out Halloween"

October 3rd:

Madman (1982)

Idle Hands

October 4th:

All Hallow's Eve (2013) - This one stuck in my head after it was over but I wish that all of the female characters weren't shrill idiots.

The Fear: Resurrection - I knew this was going to be bad but wow, the man in the 'wooden man' costume is wretched.

The Coven (2015) - The Chav Witch Project? This was fucking terrible.

October 5th:

Bram Stoker's Dracula

"Halloween Crazier"

October 6th:

"Goosebumps: Attack of the Jack-O-Lanterns"

"Johnny Bravo: Franken-Bravo" - This was truly hilarious. I forgot how much I love this show.

"Goosebumps: The Haunted Mask I & II" - The kid-acting in this is next level perfect with Canadian accents.

October 7th:

"Halloween Wars"

Practical Magic - I am the best husband in the world.

"The Martha Stewart Holiday Collection - Martha's Halloween Ideas" - Essential American television.

October 8th:

Addam's Family Values

The Crow - This actually comes with an official Goth Society ID card.

October 9th:

Evil Dead (2013) - A rollercoaster straight to hell. I love this remake.

Teen Witch - This film is the devil. Watch at your own risk. I love it.

October 10th:


October 11th:

"Agatha Christie's Poirot: Hallowe'en Party"

Bewitched (2005)

October 12th:

Hocus Pocus

October 13th:

More Travel Channel Halloween Crap

October 14th:

Suspiria - This was very special. We attended a screening of this at The Vault here in Tampa. Seeing Suspiria with a crowd was genius.

"R.L. Stine's Nightmare Room: Full Moon Halloween"

  1. Thanks for making me feel less awkward for watching iCarly!

    As a kid I used to be annoyed by Halloween (and Thanksgiving) episodes. For the last 10 years or so Halloween has been pushed hard by the media/corporations over here (they are even starting Black Friday sales now) and it's slowly becoming a fixture in our calendars, regrettably. It feels silly and forced.

    I've always enjoyed the Roseanne episodes, though. As you said on the podcast, they are definitely some of the best!
