Well, Halloween 2014 season is nearly at an end now. :/
But I still had a good time at home today. I requested off from work months ago because Halloween is my day. This is the day I don’t want to do anything other than have some apple cider, eat something pumpkin-flavored, a little bit of candy and watch horror movies.
And that’s exactly what I did today. Well, other than the candy part since I’m currently doing P90. Hey, it was either candy or Entenmann’s pumpkin donuts and I chose Entenmann’s pumpkin donuts!
On or around Halloween I usually have a few standards (like a Romero zombie movie, the first Halloween or a bunch of the original Universal Monster movies), but I tried to shake it up this year with a few horror movies I hadn’t seen in awhile.
Here was my schedule for the day:
- Ghostbusters. As soon as I woke up this morning, I watched this one. It’s probably been over 20 years since I actually sat down and watched it. All the hype about 2014 being it’s 30th anniversary put me in the mood to see it again.
- P90: Sweat A & Ab Ripper A. This has nothing to do with Halloween but I needed to do something to help combat the pumpkin donuts I was going to eat today.
- The Nightmare Before Christmas. Another one that I haven’t sat down to watch in forever. It’s Halloween and Christmas. What’s not to love?
- House of Frankenstein. One of my favorite Universal Monster films and it is essential viewing for me every October. It’s corny and was definitely released as the Monsters were winding down but I think it’s the best of the studio’s monster mash-ups.
- Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers. Another movie that I hadn’t seen in a long time. Next year I will probably give my thoughts on the Miramax Psycho Killer Series four-pack DVD that this movie is a part of.
- Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later. Can’t remember for sure but this might be the first movies from the series that I had ever watched.
- The latest episode of SyFy Channel’s Z Nation. Super cheesy zombie show that’s full of action and doesn’t take itself seriously. The anti-Walking Dead.
- Halloween w/ RiffTrax commentary. The original classic Halloween. Not that white-trash grindhouse Rob Zombie garbage. I always like to end my Halloween evenings with this one but this year it’s with the addition of RiffTrax. Anyone who attended the RiffTrax Live showing of Anaconda on October 30th got access to the RiffTrax MP3 commentary of Halloween for FREE.
I hope everyone had a great and happy Halloween!
