Happy Halloween 2013

It’s Halloween and so I’ve got to get the candy prepped.  I checked the weather and it looks to be a rainy day. The whole day. I wonder how many people are going to continue with outdoor trick or treat?  Hope everyone else has a fun and safe one.

 

Here is a Light show syncronized to the Ghostbusters theme song.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warrirors (1987)

Over the Halloween 2012 week, I decided to watch this film. It was my first time watching it.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors is a horror movie from 1987. Starring Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger. The movie also has Patricia Arquette, Laurence Fishburne, John Saxon. Give a new group of teens “super” abilities in their dreams and face off against  Freddy. I enjoyed the film but which one should I watch next?

Nothing says Halloween like Michael Jackson’s Thriller music Video

This classic music video has the lyrics, atmosphere and even some voice work by Vincent Price.

 


Halloween 2011

There weren’t too many kids knocking at the door this year. Around a dozen or so. It was a School day and the strict time of 3 – 7 PM probably contributed to the low number.  The one costume I remember the most was Luigi ( from Super Mario).

 

This also means more leftover candy for me to munch on. I also tried a new candy this year, Wonka Chocolate Waterfall.

Except they were the bagged fun size version. The combo of Milk and White chocolate is really good.  I recommend that chocolate lovers out there give it a try.

 

 


Halloween is tomorrow… here’s a video

Halloween is tomorrow. Here’s a light show video to get you in the mood. The song is Michael Jackson’s Thriller.


Halloween 2010

The foot traffic at our home was an increase over last year by almost double. Even with the strict time frame  of 3-7 PM. There were a few costumes that stood out, Venom, Spider-Man, Witches and Princesses.

When the night was over I handed out around 60-80 pieces of candy. The 6 bags of candy I had was a bit overkill but now I have something to snack on. Perhaps next year I’ll actually hand out the candy while in costume or something.
