I liked this one, pretty girls and a little spooky stuff.      

This still gets me rollin, especially the part with the dead football team.

Just thought of it, one of the creepiest television moments of 1999 was "Hush", the silent episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. For me, that is one of the scariest episodes in television history.

Which ones? Because one of them is a bit of a dud... :ph34r:

All of them. I love the old show and I love the movies they did in the 90s. 
 

well, I guess I haven’t seen the cartoon they did, I’d be willing to give it a try.

I'm going to see if I can track down the first two movies. The third was something that not even Tim Curry could save.

I think one of the things I like the most about the Addams Family is the very healthy relationship Gomez and Mortica have. It's just... Pleasant.

 

In other news, I forgot that I bought the original Oblivion. I've only seen the second one. This should be a trip...

I didn’t even know there was a third movie. 
 

Anyway, I watched the cartoon yesterday. It was decent. But they deviated from the usual unwavering support and faith that Morticia and Gomez have for their children just to provide narrative tension. That definitely detracted from the Addams Family vibe. 
 

But, I noticed that my MIL has the first collection of the original series on her Vudu, so I can at least watch that.

They've been popping upon Freeform and will be all month.

Part of their "31 Days of Halloween" they do every October. They'll also show Hocus Pocus many, many times.

 

Did they remake Hocus Pocus, or just re-release it to theaters? I drove past our local cinema today (which apparently has reopened) and it was listed on the "now showing" marquee.

 Even though it's not a horror movie, I suppose I'll be throwing in Rocky Horror at some point Halloween night - a sad consolation for not going to an actual show, but better than nothing. Hell, I only own seven copies of it in different formats and releases, lol.  ::D:

Actually, I may just go all out and do the Science Fiction Double Feature with Shock Treatment.

 

 I own Beetlejuice, Innocent Blood and Nightbreed, but I haven't watched any of them in years. Or the original Evil Dead.

 

Dead Silence is another decent horror film that I haven't watched in awhile. Oh, and another favorite of mine - the vampire movie Near Dark. That's always a classic. Can't go wrong with Lance Henriksen as a 300-year-old Civil War veteran.

 

Maybe I'll do a horror movie marathon this weekend.

They probably rereleased it. My local theater has been showing older films since they reopened in June. Hilariously (frustratingly, boringly, repetitively) they’re playing the same previews as they were in March when they shut down.

Another Halloween movie that has nothing to do with Halloween (like Clue) is Murder by Death. The ending is a bit muddled, but it's worth watching just for the cast.

 

I cannot recommend and yet still watched High Spirits again. Terrible movie, but still fun to watch once every quarter century or so.

 

Pirates of Caribbean (the first one) is on our watch list. Along with Nightmare before Christmas and Ghostbusters, of course. The original GB, although I thought recent remake with an all woman crew was pretty good.

Recently I watched The Ritual and The Void on Netflix. Both worth watching. Last year I went through a kick and watched a bunch of stuff recommended by Sandy Petersen from the 60s and 70s that I hadn't seen like Planet of Vampires and quite a few other Mario Brava movies or those inspired by him. Paying attention to which scenes use red or blue filters or whatnot was rather interesting. The focus on intentionally lighting the scenes differently was something that really changed how I watched the movies.

I've heard really good things about The Void and it's on my list. And Planet of the Vampires, that was a trip. I've been collected those old sci-fi movies and it's on the top of my list to find. For a reasonable price.

 

Here's another topic debate: Would you rather watch the original Fright Night or Monster Squad?

I don't think I've seen either one of them...

 

I did, however, rewatch An American Werewolf in London last night. That movie STILL has the best werewolf transformation scene ever, IMO. The Howling had some pretty good ones, too, especially the one at the end.

I guess I should mention that we watched the Halloween Tree with my daughter. It's baaed ob the ray bradbury book of the same name. Sounds like we will be reading it to her. Everything I put a heart beside we've probably watched already. I suppose the Addams family movies are on the to do. Yes, even the straight to VHS one.

      Better late than never.

      Here's some fun Pumpkin Horrors I painted up for @Inarah for Secret Sophie this past December.  I was still riding on my Halloween spirit when Secret Sophie began, but wanted to do something that fit the winter theme.  Inspired by the snowman-like design of the Pumpkin horrors and my own past mistakes of leaving pumpkins outside to rot all winter, I decided to do a holiday mashup with these guys left out in the cold too long.

      With some time having passed, I wish I would have made them look a bit rotten and frost-bitten, but I also like the more colorful result.

      These were some fun minis and my first time working with metal.  I have now broken the seal and have started looking into other minis that I previously considered off-limits.  I also enjoyed participating in Secret Sophie and joining in to some of the forum shenanigans.  I highly recommend participating in these kinds of things for any who have been reticent.
       
      What are some of your favorite holiday minis?

      This is Reaper's Elise the Witch.
      SKU. 02863 ( Metal Figure)
       
      Once she was part of a big Halloween Diorama but that didn't survive the move.
      I was able to save the minis though.
       
      I rebased her, gave her some highlights/ repainted parts.
      She's back in action now, ready to turn you into a frog or a willing servant.

      I know, I know, 2020 is scary enough, but here are some spooky miniatures.

      Not super sure where to post this but this made the most sense to me. I found some fantastic miniature pumpkins at my local Joann Fabrics.
       

       
      Hopefully you can find them elsewhere if you don't have a Joann's.
      They come in $10 bags that are pretty big. I don't see myself ever needing to buy more. 
       

       
      They say "fall drieds" which makes me think they're some kind of organic. But they have the consistency of some kind of acorn or pinecone. So pretty solid. I don't think they'd deteriorate but if you're worried I'm sure a sealant of some kind would do the trick. 
       

       
      They come in a mix of sizes but they all look pretty good at 28mm scale. The cutting mat has half-inch squares.
      Most of the pumpkins are of the artistically exaggerated size compared to a mini, and the smaller ones tend to be darker and a bit more mishapen. The coloration in them is pretty decent. I think they could use a layer of highlights but if you're in a hurry or making a huge pumpkin patch, then they look just fine. 
       
      Anyways, I hope this is useful for someone!

      Inspired by the weekend question, I took some pictures of the army thus far and found that posting it in the question thread would be excessive, also that I didn't have an ongoing thread for my largest painted army so here it is. The plan is to get my Shelf of Incompleteion cleared off then work on reinforcements for this alongside my Old School Undead army. 

      Here we have the Pumpkin construct unit led by a Storybook Witch from Old Glory. I have 3 more of her, but the bag only came with the one flight stand and the Reaper ones I have don't fit, when I get around that, they'll form their own unit. Behind her is Rotpatch, and the scarecrow is hanging out with these guys until I can get a couple more. The constructs are filling the slot of core infantry.

      Here is a Ral Partha Witch leading the Pumpkin Knight heavy infantry consisting of the Halloween Knight and converted Barrow Wardens. 

      Willow Greenivy leading the skeletal Pumpkin Guard. 10 newer GW skeletions and a variety of Reaper Bones. 

      Elise with the Pumpkin Chucker and some Bones skeletal archers providing ranged support.

      A female Necromancer and the Etherial Legion of ghosts and wraiths. 

      An Iconic Witch, Pumpkin Spider, and friends.

      A converted Brettonian Sorceress with the skeletal heavy infantry. Basically, what happens when adventurers irritate the witches.

      Bats, wolves, and allied vampires. 

      Another vampire and werewolf allies.

      Zombies, ghouls, and another Reaper Witch. 

      Beastmen and hell hounds with an infernalist witch.
