A Few Favorites: Halloween Movies…

Here are a few of my favorite Halloween movies that I love~!

Trick 'r Treat Poster

Trick ‘r Treat is a classic! Released in 2007 and featuring an array of actors that many will be able to recognize since they have gained popularity. The movie is made up of a few stories that connect to each other by Halloween, murder, monsters, and children. The tone of the film fluctuates from classic horror elements to cause fear-induced goosebumps and humor for the over-the-top gore, silliness (sometimes), and style of each story. I have a great love for the amazing werewolf (wolves) scene and the origin story behind the bus of kids. I would recommend this movie to anyone that wants to get their full Halloween kicks in one package.

Drag Me to Hell Poster

Drag Me To Hell is a Raimi brothers movie. The Sam Raimi is responsible for the classic ‘Evil Dead‘ movies that reshaped and influence horror in the 1980’s. ‘Drag Me To Hell’ is a darkly humored horror film about a woman cursed by a gypsy. The acting is superb by the lead actress Alison Loham. There is darkness, mystery, and scares for every scene that are disgusting and halarious. This movie is for those with a bold taste for scary and grotesque humor when it comes to Horror films making it a perfect go-to for Halloween.

Jeepers Creepers Poster

Jeepers Creepers (the first one) came out in 2001. It can be considered a cheesy-horror film but honestly I think it is amazing. A brother and sister find themselves the prey of a creature that is pretty ‘creepy’. I’ve always seen Jeepers Creepers (the creature) as a mix between the Mothman and Jersey Devil urban legends. This movie has a trademark theme and ending which I believe contributed to the massive amount of sequels that were made after (like Final Destination). A good film for those ready to be really ‘creeped’ out and fear the open night sky.

Free Hand #79 (If there was no Time)

Time, it moves and yet it is immobile.

It does not occupy space but is an abstract of it.

We only know that time is real because it is real to us

we decay and die and because of this we know that

there is time for us. I wonder what it would be like

to know no concept of time and drift lightly

through space and existence as you are, as it is,

as it will be. A steady constant, an unchangeable

body or mind that is infinite.

Free Hand #77

Blood boiling; a silent rage. The endless night as it infects and poisons itself. How silence cuts through words, making them bite sized and swalloable.

Free Hand # 76 (Light and Dark)

The light that boils and sears the flesh. The eyes are blinded. And still there is darkness

around the edges, living in shadows and drifting through the mind. Hot heat and bright

lights do not fully distinguish the cool darkness that is still alive.

The Note

Folded up and placed away. The note began to fade as the years went by. Moving from book to book, placed higher and higher on the shelf until it made it’s way to the attic. Now dead and gone, relatives search for valuables and vital documents. Rustling in the dark, the note waits to be picked up, to be read once again. Finally little hands grasp it, crunchy and smashing. Till the words begin to tear. “What is that in your hands? Throw that away! It’s garbage!” The note is tossed in a garbage bin full of moldy doilies and romance paper backs.

Free Hand #75 (Rain Falling)

Feels like a sad poem but honestly I was in a very good mood while writing this.

 


Rain falling, times passes on.

We all wash away, down the street,

down the gutter, into the depths

of the Earth.

Free Hand #74

Page by page, how it bends and folds

the next page that reveals something new

something unheard of. And yet, after

there are no more pages, they remain

powerful reminders of worlds within words.
