Casper the Friendly Ghost: Theres Good Boos Tonight

32 Days of Halloween XI: You Know, For Kids

Casper the Friendly Ghost There’s Good Boos Tonight (1948) Written by Bill Turner and Larry Riley Directed by Isadore Sparber Horror certainly comes in many forms. It can be the visceral sudden fright of someone jumping out and helping boo...

Scream Baby Scream 1969

32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 21: Scream...

Before we get to tonight’s feature film…do you remember the times that George Romero produced short segments for Mr. Rogers? No? Neither did I. But apparently Bloody Disgusting was able to find one.

Devil Doll (1964)

32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 20: Devil Doll!

Before we get to the 1964 film Devil Doll (and yes, I have to specify which one because…well, you didn’t think there could just be one film with that title, did you?) let’s hit a couple other old-time radio favorites, shall...

27th Day

32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 19: The 27th...

Time for some more sci-fi tonight…but that of course put me in the mind for some of the 1980s Twilight Zone, which has been much maligned but I really enjoyed. First we have a very young Bruce Willis (well…he has hair, anyway) in...

Strangler of the Swamp

32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 18: Strangler...

It occurs to me that there are a great number of When Animals Attack genre films, so in the interests of public safety, it might be a good idea to provide a true cautionary tale for one way to avoid being devoured. This is, of course...

Curse of the Fly (1965)

32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 17: The Curse...

Eye of the Cat (1969)

32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 16: Eye of the...

Holy mackerel, we’re already at the halfway point! Time flies when you’re launching it from a trebuchet. We kick off tonight’s festivities with a bit of old-time radio. It’s the show Sleep No More, with readings by...

My World Dies Screaming

32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 15: My World...

So it’s a night of screaming, apparently. That started with choosing the feature film and it just extended through the rest of this. So let’s get some of it out of our system. The first minute of this is the only part...

Mad Monster 1942

32 Days of Halloween XI, Day 12: The Mad...

At Disneyland, they shut the Haunted Mansion down for a while in order to transform it into a Haunted Mansion/Nightmare Before Christmas mashup. And each year, there is a bigass gingerbread house featured during the ride. First up...
