Happy Halloween to all my friends and readers! Today is not only my favorite holiday, but my ninth wedding anniversary. And since we were together for almost a year before we tied the noose - er, knot - this means that Brandi has actually managed to put up with me for nearly a decade. Through good times and a lot of bad ones. I'm a very fortunate man.
So, have a great holiday, and if you're looking for the perfect flick to catch after all the little masked extortionists have scattered back to wherever they were spawned, I highly recommend Michael Dougherty's Trick 'r Treat, just recently released on DVD and Blu-Ray after being shelved by Warner Brothers for almost two years because they were scared to release it to theaters in competition against those inexplicably popular Saw films.
It's great fun, though. An old-fashioned horror anthology that borrows the non-linear storytelling structure of, say, Pulp Fiction, with four or five interconnected little tales of terror. Good performances, creepy stories, and a real understanding of Halloween. Highly recommended!
