We were visited by two of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles today! I gave Zander a glow stick and he called it a lightsaber, so I guess Raphael carries a lightsaber now. Bah, I should have given him another one so he could carry one in each hand like Raph and his sai. Oops.
He kept showing me the “lightsaber” in the pictures, so I have about ten pictures with the glow stick in front of his face or right in front of the lens.
Alistair was so cute in his Michelangelo outfit!
They’re so adorable and it was a fantastic 18th-anniversary present to see them all dressed up.

While slow paced compared to the movies produced today, The Exorcist still stands out as one of the scariest movies of all time. The Exorcist changed the genre and scared several generations of movie watchers. Even at 37 years old, The Exorcist still scares and entertains.
Trick ‘r Treat (2008) was the first Halloween movie I was excited about in a long time. While the actual release wasn’t exactly what I expected, it was a fun romp for a Halloween and horror/thriller movie fan. Several stories are weaved together and if you pay close attention, you can see things in the background from one of the other tales. While I didn’t find Trick ‘r Treat (2008) scary, it was enjoyable and certainly put me in the Halloween mood.
If you read critic reviews and commentary on Night of the Living Dead, you could be left with a sense of wonderment on what the movie is really about. It’s almost like poetry in that people interpret it’s meaning and purpose in ways that the original creators may not have intended. No matter what you believe it’s about in the end, Night of the Living Dead is a pivotal part of horror history.
I suggest the original black and white version. Something about the black and white makes it creepier and the color version ruins some of the “filling in” your imagination does of it’s own accord.
Freddy Krueger has always been a favorite movie monster. The ability to terrorize people in their dreams is one of the scariest concepts out there. A Nightmare on Elm Street has plagued a few generations with nightmares of Freddy.
Wes Craven creates something in the Freddy series that is rare and exactly what I look for in a horror movie. Actual fear and scares instead of a gore fest. Sure, there’s blood and guts and gore, but many movies today forget about fear and go for the disgusting. I think maybe A Nightmare on Elm Street is one of the reasons movies don’t scare me anymore. Nothing tops the bastard child of 1000 manics.
I haven’t been able to bring myself to watch the remake yet. To me, Robert Englund is Freddy. Remakes can be fun and different takes on a movie are interesting to me, so I’ll watch it someday.
Unlike most people, I enjoyed the entire A Nightmare on Elm Street series. Sure, I liked some better than others, but I couldn’t get enough of Freddy. If they were still making A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s with Robert Englund as Freddy, I’m sure I would still be watching them. I might be wondering why, but I’d still be watching.
Ghost Storyactually began my love for the works of Robert Bloch (author of Psycho). With an all-star cast list (Fred Astaire, Melvyn Douglas, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., John Houseman, Alice Krige, Patricia Neal) and haunting storyline, Ghost Story has remained one of my all-time favorite classics.
Ghost Story was released in 1981 and is limited by the technology of the time, but I’ve always thought it stands the test of time better than many movies from that era. I haven’t seen it in ages, but when I started compiling my top ten list, this was one of the first movies I thought of.
Creepy and actually on the verge of scary, The Ring managed to draw me in and take me for a ride. Make sure if you get the version of the DVD that has the choice to either “Play Movie” or “Don’t Watch This” that you watch what it tells you not to. I promise your phone won’t ring and you won’t die… at least I didn’t.
