Last Saturday saw our Halloween filmfest where, as I'm sure you have guessed from the snappy title, we cerebrated Halloween a little bit early in suitably scary fashion but watching back to back horror and stuffing our faces.
I dressed up (ish) in my new Shaun of the Dead inspired t-shirt from Qwertee
We laid on a little food some of it Halloween themed (such as the snake sandwich below!) and I made swamp water punch which pretty much tasted like lilt.
Everyone carved pumpkins (mine and Tim's in the middle) and a prize went to Joe and Chelle for the best - second from left in the below photo.
We settled ourselves down with lots of popcorn and we watched:
The Sword and the Sorcerer (not strictly a horror, not strictly any good....thanks Tim)
The Shining was my choice, I still find it just as scary as when I first watched it as a young teen. There's still something horribly chilling about it and it's a masterpiece in how to shoot a beautiful film.
The axe swinging shot of Jack it so ridiculously well filmed and the bit of trivia that goes along with it: the fake door originally used was replaced with a real one when Nicholson chopped through the fake one too quickly, having volunteered as a fire marshal. Impressive and terrifying in equal measure.
Hope whatever you're doing tonight you have a spooktacular Halloween!
