  • Memories shape our lives and we cling to them as a witch clings to her flying broom (or vacuum). Some memories are comforting, others haunting. Do you remember the first time you heard: One-Eyed, One-Horned Flying Purple People Eater? How about Monster Mash? Thriller? Dead Man’s Party…https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/10/26/haunted-halloween-blog-party/Sympathy for the Devil, Time Warp, (Don’t Fear) The Reaper, Devil Went Down To Georgia…https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/10/26/haunted-halloween-blog-party/Dragula, Welcome to my Nightmare, This Is Halloween…Who You Gonna Call?

  • For some, Halloween is another kind of Christmas. It’s been 25 years since I stood in line on opening day to see Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas   https://yadadarcyyada.com/2013/10/19/the-nightmare-before-christmas/ and sometimes it feels like yesterday. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/10/26/haunted-halloween-blog-party/

  • Hocus Pocus  came out the same year and it’s cheesiness put a spell on me for all time.

  • Halloween attacked theaters (1978, 40 years ago and still today) and thanks to lax age rules back then, I probably saw it on the big screen. I heard that music and I was transfixed, they had me. Then the cinematography sucked me into the vortex of Michael Myers; I was right there, running scared with Laurie Strode/Jamie Leigh Curtis (Final Girls rule!)https://yadadarcyyada.com/2014/03/20/25-ways-to-stay-alive-in-a-horror-movie/ https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/10/26/haunted-halloween-blog-party/

  • Night of the Living Dead  was 50 years ago and sadly, the ending stands up the most in these troubled times, proving the point, the more things change the more they stay the same. https://yadadarcyyada.com/2016/10/14/the-glorious-chaos/

  • The Rocky Horror Picture Show – 43 years and counting of fish nets, great tunes and, er, toast? https://yadadarcyyada.com/2013/10/25/the-rocky-horror-picture-show/ 

    https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/10/26/haunted-halloween-blog-party/

  • Netflix’s vision of The Haunting of Hill House may thrill and chill you. Starring Michiel Huisman of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society   -thanks Netflix for keeping the original book titles, for both and possibly for redoing Sabrina, I think I’m missing the teenage witch angst campiness, but adding Michelle Gomez  aka Missy from Doctor Who , genius!), Game of Thrones, Orphan Black, Nashville; also, Timothy Hutton; Carla Gugino; Henry Thomas (E.T. Phone Home!) https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/10/26/haunted-halloween-blog-party/and more, it’s not too scary, er, depending on your definition of scary.  https://yadadarcyyada.com/2014/10/19/religion-politics-and-the-great-pumpkin/https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/10/26/haunted-halloween-blog-party/

  • Something wicked this way comes and horror gives us a way to examine the scary, horrifying, most frightening, the darkest parts of our world in a safe space, so you might say we horror fans are the original snowflakes…let’s hope we don’t melt.

    1. These are both awesome although I always forget about “Black Christmas”, which is so wrong. Both are classics.
      Did you ever see a movie called, “The Dead Don’t Die”? It’s funny how some movies stick in your head, I think I watched it when I wasn’t supposed to.

  1. Donna, you hallowed gem! You reminded me of every spook-tacular Halloween favorite. I love this post.
    I didn’t know they remade Sabrina. I will look for it. I need more silliness in my life.
    Oh yes, I was so delighted and excited, I almost forgot your invitation for a link. Here’s a horror story: Now that I made a party bus in stead of a book launch, I seem to have started a trend. Really, imitation is the highest form of flattery, but they could have at least waited a decent mourning period before claiming my idea… Anyhow, everyone is welcome to join my party for “Atonement in Bloom” https://teagansbooks.com/2018/10/20/book-launch-party-bus-atonement-book-fair/

      Of course they’re copying you, you’re the cat’s pajamas, but they could have waited a tad or at least disguised it a little better. You’re an influencer (never sure that’s a good thing if people are just going to steal your ideas).
      Yes, just started watching the latest “Sabrina” on Netflix, not as campy as the TV series from way back when but interesting so far. 🙂
      Hope you have a wonder-filled weekend, dear friend and drop by again and again!

  2. Oh Darling girl, you’ve got me reading this from beneath the bed . With me there there’s no room for monster. I didn’t want to be scared by your reminiscences but you surprised me with it and it’s not even Halloween yet.. I’m holding on to sanity since you mentioned Terry Pratchett and it’s a little better too since you mentioned Neil Gaiman. The Munsters and the Adams Family played it for laughs and I’m OK with that but really whet’s making me hold it all together (apart from you) is the thought of Black Friday and the Christmas presents I can get. I might even give some of them out this year.

      There are so many levels to horror although a lot of them seem to be in the political circus these days – shudder!!!
      I’m glad you’re holding it together and glad I could help in any way, dear friend. I’m mostly done my Christmas shopping (don’t throw things at me!), but I will be checking out the deals cause you never know 🛍️🛍️🛍️
      Hope life has been treating you well, if not, let me know so I can give it a stern talking to. 😉
      Thank you for dropping by, but you didn’t leave any links – links to post (any, even older or other folks’ posts), links to books (I know you have those, they’re wonderful), social media, etc. Come back and share your wonder!!!

  3. So many great movies, TV shows and songs that lie on the dark side. It’s a scary time of year, made even worse for me because my birthday is on Halloween and it scares me when my age ticks up one more number. Tick tock, I don’t want to hear that clock on Halloween.. But I do want to watch some of those movies or Adams Family reruns! Maybe listen to some Danny Elfman music (Dead Man’s Party or Nightmare Before Christmas, either will do.) More than that, I think I will crash this blog party. I have posted quite a few horror/scary stories on my blog, but I am going to be self-centered and post a link introducing the villain (a spirit/ghost/whatever) from my book, The Halley Branch. I hope you enjoy! https://trentsworldblog.wordpress.com/2018/06/22/benjamin-the-halley-branch/

  6. Happy Halloween and thank you.

    The leaves are changing. The ghosts, ghouls, monsters and witches are coming out.
    Fear the night, never walk alone.
    October nights rebirth the ghost seeking salvation or revenge.

    He, who knocked on the house with no lights.
    May, rebirth the hungry witch.

    Check the candy, check your friends.
    Halloween night.

    Ever-changing and the night where the dead can dance and sing.

I turned around and sure enough, about 10 rows up there he was! I thought to myself, you have got to be kidding me! Well! Didn’t he wait for me after the concert and hand me his business card!
