Halloween Movies You May Like

I have a confession, I like kid's movies-- I liked them when I was a kid, and still like them today. When it comes to Halloween movies, I still like the kid's stuff.  Some of my favorite kid's movies are Disney titles from the 1960's, as with most things, they were made better back in the day. 

I can remember where and when I saw these movies, they made such an impression on me.  I saw Disney's Blackbeard's Ghost in 1968 at the Circle Drive-In in Maple Shade NJ, it was a double feature with The Son of Flubber.  I like both movies, but Blackbeard's Ghost had some great spooky gimmicks that fired up my young imagination. 

The movies back then had a certain charm to them that you won't find in today's movies.  Although the plots were hokey, I think the primitive special effects helped. Today, you never wonder how they achieved an effect, it's all computer generated. But in 1966 when the organ in The Ghost and Mr. Chicken played, with no one at the keyboard... wow, now how did they do that?  I saw that at The Broadway Theatre in Palmyra, NJ. 

Movies like The Ghost and Mr. Chicken didn't just throw a story at you, it pulled you in with a supporting cast of  familiar faces, all those great character actors, from every 1960's TV show, people like Charles Lane, Rita Shaw, Dick Sargent, Hal Smith... then you put them all in a small town, that you feel like you've been to before, then put Don Knotts in a role that resembles Barney Fife, a haunted house, and you have a hit. 

 
   Bette Midler conjures up a hit movie with Hocus Pocus

The Broadway Theatre building is still in Palmyra, but hasn't been a movie theatre for 45 years, the Circle Drive-In is long gone, and the casts of many of my favorite movies may now be real ghosts, but turn on the TV, and everything is safe and easy to understand again.

There are also TV shows from the 1960's that are also a lot of fun at this season, like the first TV families' of Halloween, The Addams Family and The Munsters. So which show was the best?  If I had clear choice, I'm not sure I'd want to say, it's like the "dogs or cats" debate, no matter what you pick, you're going to tick-off a lot of people. 

Another show that is required Halloween viewing is It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Did you know this was the third Charlie Brown special, it was proceeded by: A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965) and Charlie Brown's All Stars! (1966) and it's been followed by 49 more outings for Charlie Brown.  

Don't get me wrong, I have an appreciation for the new witches and wizards, like in the Harry Potter Movies, but my Top 13 List of Halloween Movies, might give you some suggestions that you have forgotten, or never heard of, so check it out, and have A Happy Halloween!

AMC Renews The Walking Dead for a Sixth Season

 AMC has renewed fan-favourite, The Walking Dead for a sixth season, even before the fifth season has started to air.

AMC also recently announced that it has ordered a pilot for a potential companion series to The Walking Dead, based on a new story and new characters from Robert Kirkman.

The Walking Dead is the highest rated program in cable TV history, and, for the past two years, has been the #1 show with adults 18-49, so it’s no surprise AMC wanted to lock it down for a sixth season.

“We could not be more excited for October 12th as we share new episodes of The Walking Dead with fans around the globe,” said AMC President Charlie Collier in a press release.

“In advance of Sunday’s season five premiere, AMC proudly confirms a sixth season order of this extraordinary series.

“Thank you to Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, the terrific executive producers, and the entire team who brings this compelling world and these rich characters to life. There’s plenty more Dead ahead thanks to their impressive, collective effort.”

The Walking Dead, season five, premieres, Sunday, October 12, at 9 PM and is followed by the live season premiere of Talking Dead at 10 PM when host Chris Hardwick welcomes this week’s guests, showrunner and writer, Scott M. Gimple; executive producer and special effects make-up supervisor, Greg Nicotero and superfan Conan O’Brien.

The 16th Minute, after a Reality Star's 15 Minutes of Fame

LOS ANGELES – October 6, 2014 – AXS TV presents a behind-the-scenes look at the world of reality television, in the compelling and timely documentary The 16th Minute, on Wednesday, October 22, at 10pE/7pP. The 16th Minute is produced ad hosted by former TV personality Paul Grassi, best known as a finalist on season five of The Mole, and examines the highs and lows of reality stardom and society’s hunger for fame.

Joining Grassi in his search for answers is an impressive roster, featuring original reality villain and inaugural Survivor winner Richard Hatch, who blames his portrayal on the show for his tax evasion conviction; Jersey Shore bad girl Angelina Pivarnick; Big Brother All-Star Marcellas Reynolds; Hell's Kitchen standout and celebrity chef Robert Hesse; Survivor alums Billy Garcia, Russell Swan, and Mike Shurpin; and more.

In interviews juxtaposed with footage from their various television appearances, the panel provides in-depth access to the world of reality TV, as they discuss the allure of fame, the audition process, the pitfalls of bad editing, the entertainment aspect, and the difficulty of maintaining stardom once their stint is over.

After Grassi was propelled into a short-lived super-stardom, taking pictures, signing autographs, and making appearances as a local celebrity, Grassi quickly found himself once again relegated to obscurity. Curious as to whether or not other reality personalities had suffered similar fates, Grassi set out on a quest to discover what happens when the fifteen minutes of fame run out, and  The 16th Minute begins.   

Weighing in on the cultural and psychological impact of reality television is esteemed radio and television host Dr. Drew Pinsky, whose landmark 2006 study determined that reality stars rate the highest on the Narcissistic Personality Inventory. Additionally, Pinsky explains the disturbing effects of reality television on the current generation, as it glorifies behavior that “is not a good model for human existence.”
