I have a LOT of stuff I need to be getting done, but, you know, I have always had the damnedest time getting anything done on a Sunday. I went to church and got a prayer shawl blessed for the mother of a friend. I went grocery shopping with my husband. I made spaghetti sauce for dinner, chopped vegetables and made salad for tomorrow’s lunch, and… OK, that was it. And I am watching Halloween movies, so I can at least make a blog post with fun pictures. We started cheesy with Horror Hotel (1960), featuring a young, fairly hot Christopher Lee.
The movie was in one of our DVD horror collections. House on Haunted Hill was also on that disc. Of course we have House on Haunted Hill (1959) on a disc all by itself, seeing as it is one of our all time favorites, but I suggested we go ahead and watch it on that disc, since it was already in the machine.
Next Steven suggested Carnival of Souls (1962), a really trippy, well made, low budget, high suspense horror film.
I got the picture from a cool Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/carnivalofsouls1962/.
And I have missed a bit of the movie while I made this post. It hardly matters. I will certainly watch this movie again. I have declared it Halloween season in my household. I figure if my fall allergies can kick in so early (and they certainly have!), I can enjoy the fun parts of fall as well. It makes an excellent way to get through a Wrist to Forehead Sunday.
Carnival of Souls ended before I hit publish, so I moved on to Night Tide (1961), which is on the same disc.
