Horror Movie Matters: Intermission
#20: Halloween 1978 Dir. John Carpenter
It’s September and I’m ready for cooler weather and Halloween. I’m looking forward to an entire month of horror movies, culminating in a night of dressing up and going into a sugar coma. This is usually the only month of the year where I crave cable, if for no other reason than AMCs The Walking Dead, VOD movies and the TCM lineup. I’ll have to make due, I suppose.

Note from the desk of Rob Walker: These comics are two of my favorites that Steve has ever created. For those of you unfamiliar with the subject matter here, let me fill you in. The first comic Day at the Fair, is a shortened retelling of the German Expressionist film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920). It is a silent masterpiece in which a sideshow attraction wreaks havok on a small village.
It would be virtually impossible for me to do a Halloween themed CMV article without bringing up The Misfits. Formed in the late 1970s, the band would go through several line-ups (too many to discuss here) as well as an evolving sound that would go on to influence the punk rock and metal scene for years to come.
I definitely won't make RPG reviews a part of the website. However, I have been dipping into the hobby more and more, as I find that it is an excellent tool with which to stimulate creativity. If this isn't your thing, I suggest you skip the video.
