BOOKS OF THE WEEK

Given that it is Halloween, I thought I would once again mention some graphic novels that are fun to read and tells the stories through pictures such as the one below:

Bram Stoker’s Dracula

 

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein

Robert Louis Steven’s 

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

& The Body Snatcher

Edgar Allan Poe’s

The Raven & Other Tails

I happen to buy theses four books at Barnes & Nobles, but I suspect they are available elsewhere. 

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

This is one of the scariest movies that I have ever seen.

Night of the Living Dead (1968)

Below is my favorite Halloween film because a friend of mine made it and a number of my friends appeared in it.

The Dead Walk The Earth

Yet They Live

And They Kill

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

There are a lot of Halloween music available and no doubt you have heard them, so I thought I would try to find something that most of you haven’t heard before.  

Mad Daddy

The Cramps

ART OF THE WEEK

Halloween Costumes

This is definitely an art form.

Check out Darth Vader below

This Priest is one of my favorites

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK

Cassandra Peterson

Cassandra Peterson, May 2011

Cassandra Peterson (born September 17, 1951) is an American actress best known for her portrayal of the horror hostess character Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. She gained fame on Los Angeles television station KHJ-TV wearing a revealing, black, gothic, cleavage-enhancing gown as host of Elvira’s Movie Macabre, a weekly horror movie presentation. Her wickedly vampish appearance is offset by her comical character, quirky and quick-witted personality, and Valley girl-type speech.

Elvira, Mistress of the Dark

Elvira is an “other worldly” entity who goes about our world by portraying American actress Cassandra Peterson, who of all things, portrays a make-believe  character, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.

  1. “…and every road out is just another dead end” – I HAVE to see this movie! I can’t believe I haven’t yet!

    I just love Halloween… I was at a Halloween party last Saturday and kids actually rang the doorbell to trick or treat! That never happens!! Halloween is not big enough yet in the Netherlands. I just love the goth feel and the scary things and the monsters. And the movies on TV! Best holiday ever, if you ask me 🙂
