I don’t know about anyone else, but the Post Halloween Blues hit me hard this year. So many horror movies I didn’t get to. So many posts I could have written. The worst is catching up on TV and seeing the Halloween episodes I misse - ModernFamilyhilariousHalloweenepisodeturnitoff!!!
In particular I wanted to watch Basket Case and Saturday the 14th (sorry Pat). I also wanted to watch The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 with the gang. I watched that on my own and it was nuts. Dennis Hopper - the good guy, mind you - just runs around screaming shit and chainsawing stuff for like, twenty minutes straight.
Dr. Dog at Freebird Live
T, Pat, Nick, and myself are catching Dr. Dog at Freebird Live tonight. Between the four of us, this will make 13 times that we’ve seen the boys in concert (hell, this will mark the third time T has seen them this year). I saw them in Atlanta last and I’m looking forward to catching them out at Freebird again.
Anyone a fan of Dr. Dog? Anyone checking them out tonight?
Lebowski Fest Chicago is this weekend! In the off chance that we have any readers attending the Fest, do share some photos!
For my favorite horror scene back in October, I talked about how Jeepers Creepers is made creepier by the fact that I grew up close to where they filmed it. I asked Twitter if they could relate to this and I got a few great answers:
@zerbert I grew up 5 miles from Burkittsville, MD, def made Blair Witch Project freakier.

@zerbert I live near a place in a horror book not film.The book is The Rats by James Herbert.

Pax at Cavalcade of Awesome said what we were all thinking about this Disney Star Wars business:
Oh, man, I just realized.No more 20th Century Fox fanfare before a Star Wars film. #GeekSadness

This was just a delightful tweet by The Cinefamily and it’s making me miss Halloween even more:
