Something Wicked This Way Comes

As anyone who reads this blog knows, I'm a huge horror fan, so you've probably assumed that October is my favorite time of year. You have assumed correctly. Halloween has to be the greatest holiday ever invented, and it certainly holds more excitement, more warm memories than christmas can even get close to. It's even more important now that I have a daughter to whom I can impart all the wonders of this month. Trick or Treating hasn't been this much fun in a decade.

So... to celebrate the greatest month in history, I'm going to try something a little different. 31 days of horror! Every day(excluding weekends, since I don't have reliable access to this site) I will be adding a post that will recommend various horror movies, books, comics, soundtracks, or experiences. And yes, I know that 31 days from now will no longer be October, but if the Simpsons can air the Treehouse of Horror in November, I can keep talking about horror movies until the 11th.

I don't purport to be an expert(at least not a very good one), but I do think I have some knowledge in the area. As such these won't necessarily be reviews, and I won't be ranking anything, they will simply be things that I think everyone should make an effort to check out. I'm also going to make an apology in advance to Rik over at Cinema4Pylon, because I'm sure that more than a few things in the upcoming posts will owe their genesis to him and his far superior blog. I'm not even going to try and imitate his informed(and informative) reviews, but I've learned a bit about formatting by reading his site, and I just feel that an acknowledgment is in order. Plus I think you all should really check his blog out.

So, for now, bookmark this site, and check back often... or at least daily, and I'll do my best to keep on schedule. If you take me up on any recommendations, drop me a line letting me know what you think.

You are correct: Halloween is the greatest holiday ever, in whatever form it has existed over the years.

You are also correct: The Cinema 4 Pylon rocks!!!

Sincerely,
