  1. I'm putting these on my list to watch this week. It's fun to throw in some VOD movies, though. I saw Scar 3D and it scared the crap out of me.

  2. Really, that sounds good. I am so in the mood for some new horror. Just finally got my DVD player and TV in my new place so I can get caught up on my horror fav's.

  3. The most terrifying places in America sounds interesting.

  4. Jessica;
    That series is really good. I think my ultimate dream job would be to do those kinds of documentary shows. What a freaking blast to do horror-related ones and go to cool places, learn about local legends and such. How fun!

  5. Looks like it's picking up, slowly. Until now I had noticed a real paucity of Halloween season offerings on TV. That said, there doesn't seem to be much new programming. I've noticed a lot of airings that have been trotted out for several years now. Sign of the economy, I guess.

  6. Cullan;
    I expect that channels like the family channel that does a bunch of those Halloween shows and Travel Channel will probably hold off and do just a few shows right up on Halloween's ass. I miss the old days when every channel all month long had horror movies nonstop. I used to have a freaking hard time deciding what to watch. They're missing the boat, buddy.

  7. I clearly be watching the last listing - Travel Channel The most terrifying places in America.

  8. Just wanted to let you know that Most Terrifying Places in America 6 airs on Friday too. Right before Ghost Adventures. Glad they don't highlight the same places over and over.

  9. Thanks Andrea--what a great night! I also found out Paranormal State and Psychic Kids comes out on Sunday with a new season on A&E! Wahoo!
