Yay, It's October! My favorite month. It is time for the leaves to change and fall, the apples to ripen, and mums, pumpkins, and corn stalks bundles are everywhere. It's time for decorating ones front yard with Autumn scenes. It's time for watching a football game huddled under a blanket, for friends gathering around bonfires, time to pull out your most loved sweater. It's time for Starbucks to bring back the pumpkin spiced lattes!
It's also the month of scary. Halloween always singles the start of the holiday months. In my opinion Halloween should be a get out of work holiday so one can spend all day getting ready for that night. I mean, really, it's takes a while to become a convincing zombie.
Also, during October the TV stations pull out all the horror movies. And though I love horror flicks, there has been not too many of them lately. Sure there has been slasher flicks where the whole movie depends on special effects and shock value. The seems to not be a real plot. I guess this bothers me because I am a story teller. I like plot and deep characters. The suspense has been lost. Don't get me wrong. Everyone who knows me knows I can sit though twelve hours of zombie movies. I love B movies. But today's B movies lack the suspense of the old black and white movies of the fifties. There was just something about them-the fear of the unknown, the build up to the revel.
This month I will share the trailers of some of my all time favorite B movies. So, for your enjoyment here is the first (and my ultimate favorite)- War of the worlds (the original)
