This Halloween week in Horror Movies and Paranormal TV

Just for fun, put on your copy of "Halloween II." Oh, you know you own it, confess! Put it at the beginning when they show Dr. Loomis shooting Michael. This bothered me from the first time I saw it in the theater in high school... notice how Michael backs up onto the balcony and his feet are at the same level as the railing? Hmm....

*(asterisk) means I’m watching it.

This list gets bigger and bigger with more paranormal shows making new episodes and of course all the smart channels knowing to show horror as we approach Samhain. I’m thrilled that “Fact or Faked” is back on the scene on Thursday night following “Destination Truth” (awesome ass to kiss). So, expect more of the FoF tank top boobie shots on the Friday reviews and perhaps a new LAUGH episode.

SPIKE: “Halloween” (the Rob Zombie unusual version)

  1. This is the best post ever!!! Hours of enjoyment will be had by us. You're awesome.

  2. I'm crazy. Can you imagine going over all the channels Halloween week for 7 days? Yikes! Yeah, it's an insanely good schedule, but I have to admit a lot of channels didn't come up to bat. It used to be all the channels showed horror. Jeez!

  3. This is the week to savor , day by day.

  4. Echo;
    Don't you know it! We're about to enter the snow and reindeer/Santa and Home Alone season. Hee hee

  5. oh yes! thanks for posting this.
    lol, we don't even have a tv in the apartment, let alone cable. but i go to the workout room; there's a tv in there with cable, huzzah!

  6. Sandra;
    That royally sucks. Your kids must be going bonkers! My first month here, I only had a very tiny TV in the bedroom. I would go to the gym in the complex just to see a big screen while I worked out. I have my own equipment, but I wanted a chance to see something I didn't have to squint at. Hopefully, online you can find some of these things. They are so good about putting their shows up to get people to get hooked.

  7. I didn't see Trick R Treat listed this year. Looks like I have to go buy the dvd! I'm going to dvr some of these thrillers!

  8. Sandra;
    What is with that? I just don't get why that isn't on there. Do you know, I can count on probably one hand the horror movies based on Halloween Night. Trick R Treat at least was stuffed full of Halloween night feel. I need to add it to my movies too. I can't believe I haven't bought it yet, but things have been kinda hectic lately.

  9. I saw that Ben Hansen is going to join the Ghost Hunters live show. Should be interesting.

  10. I love Ben and will follow him wherever he goes. He's a handsome smart guy but also very charming and funny and sweet. GH could seriously use that mojo.
