I'll admit, I don't quite understand the fascination with Halloween.
I mean, as a child I participated, and as an adult I've been to parties (once I dressed up as a Corporate MoFo - I just wore my best suit and had pink slips of paper in the breast pocket, which I gave out - and won a prize), but I don't get the whole sink-your-teeth-into-the-holiday thing.
OK, I will put Halloween ahead of, say, Columbus Day, but for me, it's another holiday I'll probably will have to work.
Scary movies? Again, I like them if they are well done. I tend to go for the classics (The Shining being a favorite). I've also been enjoying the second season of The Walking Dead on AMC.
So anyway, it's the haunting season. If you haven't tried it, go over to Take This Lollipop and scare the ba-jebus out of yourself (the site asks to scan your Facebook info, then creates a personal horror film, which is...weird).
But before you go, watch a few clips from a 1936 film called "Freaks." Tod Browning directs. Freaking weird (and a tip o' the hat to gal-pal JeniMc for hipping me to this).
Freaks, your Video Friday:
Unfortunately, I found that most of the Freaks are disabled by request (WTF?) so here's a couple of URL links:
