HALLOWEEN FILM RECOMMENDATIONS 2011
by Brian J. Showers, © October 2011

Here we are in October, easily my favourite time of year—and hopefully one that you enjoy too. Autumn is a time when we can indulge in the lengthening shadows, when it’s ok to be just a little bit more scared of the dark. After all, the nights are getting longer. Here’s another batch of offerings, little votives for your television screen. So turn off the lights, pull the blanket around your shoulders and prepare for a shudder or two. Boo!

I must apologise--this year I didn't have time to write up descriptions of each film. Still, there's lots here for your to explore, and with luck I'll eventually fill in the blanks with my own assessments.

And don't forget, there's plenty of films in links past. Enjoy!
