October is but one day away and that's the most wonderful time of the year! Haunted houses, jack o' lanterns, monster decorations and suddenly everyone is imbued with ghoulish glee.
However, last Halloween at Maison du Macabre was kind of a dud. My beloved Halloween decorations (including homemade tombstones) that turned the yard into a mad-and-macabre-wonderland had deteriorated. Friends cancelled their plans at the last minute. There weren't even any trick or treaters. Sure, Otis Calhoun showed up in a pirate outfit asking for candy and spray-painted pentagrams all over the yard of that annoying fundamentalist family who set up a Hallelujah house in their garage, but he does that whether its Halloween or not.
And I tend to spend the rest of the year sitting around in my Elvira costume anyway.
But what better way to renew the Halloween spirit then a month-long marathon of horror movies set on Halloween?
So let's bust out the candy corn, sing The Monstervision Song and make our Pagan ancestors proud!
