My favorite holiday is the entire month of
October! There's nothing like celebrating the holidays with a feast. For Thanksgiving you've got plain ol' turkeys for Turkey Eaters, but for Halloween, how about sharing a table with some of the following connoisseurs in these movies?
The Brain Eaters. Cool and weird, it’s one of those Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Puppet Masters deals with the people around you turning into mixed up zombies. It’s so much like the Puppet Masters, in fact, that they got sued for it, and it was yanked from theaters. The story might be familiar, but the way it’s told is pretty unique. There's crazy music and weird old-timey film stock scenes. Sort of avant-gardey. You’ll swear it’s a more recent movie than it is. Also, Leonard Nimoy, illogically concealed by special effects, is in it. Check it out, daddio. Make your living room a drive-in.
We just mentioned Nimoy, and another familiar face (with less paint on it) peeks out at you in Curse of the Living Corpse which is one of those “creative punishment” movies like Dr. Phibes. Why, it’s Roy Scheider of which I speak in his first role. If you’ve read this far, however, you’re more likely to be a fan of Candace Hilligoss from a little movie men still call Carnival of Souls. The film was made in the 60’s and takes place in the 1890’s. Nothing beats a period piece period piece, and by that I mean movies from one long-ago era set in what was to them a long-ago era. Hilarious and cool. Check it out for the costumes.
Finally, for all the Dog-Eaters out there, there's Pet Semetary II (see AMC airtime). Not only the sequel to what we all agree was a cool late-80’s frightener, but also the big-screen follow up for T2’s Edward Furlong. You got Goose from Top Gun as his dad. You probably haven’t seen it, but I assure you it’s emo-tastic. If you squint, it’s kind of like Lost Boys with shovels.
