Hallowe'en Linkses!

Sonic Safari has a new Hallowe'en mix up. And the one from last year is still available. Reverend Frost also has some new mixes up.

Scar Stuff put together this video of sounds from a cheesy 70's haunted house record with animated images from the covers of Eerie magazine. Amazingly cool. (Hat tip to Magic Carpet Burn)

Excellent article by Lenore "Free Range Kids" Skanazy on the taming of Hallowe'en. There's really not that much danger out there, people! Here's another one along the same lines from the Atlantic Food Channel. And Rob McDougal points us toward a nice Harper's article on persistant vampire belief in modern Eastern Europe.

And of course, TCM is doing old scholl horror all weekend. Here are my reccomendations for TiVo-ing:

I Walked With a Zombie: It's like Jane Eyre with Zombies! Amazing, atmospheric cinematography haunting voodoo drums.

The Old Dark House: Directed by James Whale (Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Invisible Man). Probably a primary source for Rocky Horror, and featuring Gloria Stewart from Titanic as a young starlet.
Mad Love: Peter Lorre's best.

Freaks: obviously.
The House on Haunted Hill: cuz you gotta have some Vincent Price in there.
