I had never seen The Shining on the big screen until this past Saturday, got to me in a way it hasn’t in years.
My guests have just left...apparently “Night of the Demons” was unknown to all of them and they had a blast. And I was able to introduce someone to both Suspiria and Halloween 3 for the first time which is always a treat. I’m the horror guy in my group and don’t really have friends who are into it the way some of us on here are, so it’s always great when something I show them clicks. Two years ago the bill was Halloween, Bride of Reanimator, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, and Trick r Treat...lemme tell you Bride and TCM 2 got some wild reactions.
Winding down the night with a solo viewing of return of the vampire, Columbia’s unofficial Dracula sequel with Bela Lugosi and one of the first films to put a werewolf and a vampire in the same film. Lugosi gets to really...ahem....sink his teeth into the role and I think I like him as “Armand Tesla” even more than the count himself.
Another Halloween in the can on my end. Hope everyone had a great one, see y’all on the other side. :)
I have been in this business a long time. Now if I don't want to do a show, it's not because I got stage fright. It's because some creature from beyond doesn't want me to do the show. Now gangway.
