The REEL Octoberfest


Fall is in the air, and Halloween is coming.  I love Halloween (it is one of my favorite holidays), but I don't get in the mood for it just because I am confronted by candy and costume displays in the stores.  So, an important part of the process for me, besides enjoying the cooler temperatures, is to start popping in those creepy movies that make me shiver for other reasons.  I would love to have company.  

Therefore, I give you the The REEL Octoberfest.  I sat down, racked my brains, and leafed through the pages of my own movie catalog to compile a list of the best, creepiest, funniest, and most enjoyable (vintage) Halloweeny movies I have ever seen.  Coincidentally, the list came out to 31 films on the dot.  So, join me, if you will, in gathering around you a few of these films to enjoy in the month of October.
