What movies do you watch? I like Night of the Living Dead. That's my Halloween go to.
We pick something either out of the collection or from the various movies playing on TV at the time haha. In the past we've gone to the cinema as well, although it depends whats on.

My go to is the re-make of Evil Dead. I love the original trilogy (especially 2) and the remake is the right level of "tribute to the first one" and good remake as well Smile

Excellent choice.
This Halloween I'll start with 'Halloween III' & 'Halloween VI', continue with 'Trick r' Treat', 'House on Haunted Hill' and 'Children of the Corn'.
It's best to plan ahead in case it becomes an all-nighter. The alternatives I'll probably pick from are; 'Ginger Snaps', 'The Witch', 'The Ninth Gate', 'The Prince of Darkness', 'Pet Sematary II', 'Jeepers Creepers' and 'The Night Flier'.

(Sigh) One day simply isn't enough for this holiday.
On that note, there's no time to waste; Have fun everybody.

This thread reminds that I should post my favorite Halloweeny type music from The Shining

ooooOOO00000ooooo creeeeepy Evil_monster





One of the greatest opening credits to any movie, ever.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I gots more of my favorite Holloween music for you. Big Grin

Don't forget...... a boy's best friend is his mother. Kiss

I have a "thing" about classical orchestra conductors. Even when they get older somehow they look pretty sexy. I think it has something to do with that 8 inch baton they wave around. Yes

Bernstein is cheating, though. He was a genuinely handsome man (with or without a baton) throughout his life, and more fun to watch than any other conductor I've ever seen. Nobody would ever say that he was "just going through the motions."

When I listened to the Psycho piece by Bernard Herrmann I was suprised how well it holds up in a classical orchestra setting. It really was a brilliant piece of movie music. Without his music I don't think that movie would have been as memorable.

Gotta love the end of the Berlioz where the head bounces down the guillotine steps! I'm partial to the fifth movement of that symphony, though, for Halloween because it feels super spooky to me. And only a little bit because there's a big Eb clarinet solo that's a bunch of fun to play in that movement.

Danse Macabre was on the program of the first concert my son ever attended, at age 3 weeks. It was a halloween concert--my husband was performing--and the orchestra was in costume; my son threw up on my husband about 15 minutes before the downbeat. Husband cleaned up a little bit, put a rag over the stain, and changed the title of his costume from beach bum to "new father," and voila!

Conductors can be pretty sexy...there are different size batons, though. Some conductors use a baton that's so long it might poke a viola player's eye out (if a viola player ever looked in the conductor's direction; fortunately that tends to be rare). There tends to be an inverse relationship between the size of the baton and the sexiness of the conductor.

I learned today that the shower scene was originally intended to have no music, but Herrmann wrote something anyway and Hitchcock went with it.
