I finally got to see the Roger Corman/Vincent Price collaboration The Pit and the Pendulum. I didn't find it at all scary, but I'm glad I finally got to see it. I understand the films Corman made with Price are considered "classics" of their type.

Oh, and I ate candy. ...  ;D

Have you seen any of the other Corman/Price Edgar Allen Poe series?  "The Fall of the House of Usher" is my favorite.

I don't know what I'm going to do with all the left-over Halloween candy.  I guess I'll eat all those fun-size bars or take them to work.

No, I've never seen any of them. That's why I was so glad to see The Pit and the Pendulum.

I expect we'll be wallowing in left-over candy at work this week.  :-\

Heh, the modern Halloween, is certainly very American.. but it originated in the UK! Robert Burns even wrote a poem about it!

As a child, I called it guising..

Does anybody do Guy Fawkes Day anymore?  ???

When I was a kid in school they told us dumb colonials that Britain didn't celebrate Halloween, but people did a lot of the stuff "we" did on Halloween on Guy Fawkes Day.  ???

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
Gunpowder Treason and Plot.
I see no reason that Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot!

It's fun to see other countries celebrating Halloween.  ;D  It's become quite a party Holiday here, and next year it is on a Friday night.

;D

God help us. ...  :laugh:

I doubt you will ever see me in a Halloween costume. :laugh:

But lookeee here, my son put on the costume again. I guess some people will recognize the mask. ;D




And we put the hood on Tina :laugh:




That venetian mask look pretty scary with that coat and all. I guess he scared a few people, pretty good.  ;D

Unfortunate I can´t say the same thing about the dog, she´s to cute. I guess she got less candy then your son. Hope she is not to shaken up about it.  ;D
