🎃 Definitely carving pumpkins! We've been doing this ever since I can remember. I remember when I was little I used to covet the white pumpkins. They were very special to me.
😈 When I was little it was a little red devil costume that I used to wear all year round. I have pics somewhere. As a grown up it would have to be The Crow.

EmilyM Sorry....hit send too fast! I am teaching this to my sophomores right now! It's good--I didn't know there was a movie...how is it? 8h
TheReadingMermaid @EmilyM actually they made The Invisible Man with Claude Rains and then they made 4 sequels. This is one of the sequels. the first one is very well done. And for the time. The special effects are absolutely incredible! This one has Vincent Price in it and is also very good. The other three are just okay. But that is my opinion. 😊 8h
EmilyM Thanks! Four sequels, huh?! Wow! I am enjoying teaching the book. This is the first year my department is teaching it. The kids have gotten into it, too. 8h
TheReadingMermaid @EmilyM oh yes then definitely look into the Claude Rains film. It was made in 1933 so I doubt you would be unable to let them watch it in school. 7h

Watching this one now...

1933 starring Claude Rains and Gloria Stuart

Fun fact, this movie was directed by James Whale, the same man who directed both Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein. If you don't catch the similarities in the direction, you can catch the similarities in the cast. 😉

The last sequel made...

1955 starring John Agar and Lori Nelson

Fun fact, this movie was Clint Eastwood's debut film. He has a bit part in this one with (I think) two minimal speaking lines. He's not even in the title credits. It's so cute.🖤

Lizpixie When I was 15, the first funeral I ever went to was for a friend who also died from a fatal asthma attack. Most people don‘t realise how scary this disease is, they think it‘s just a puffer and you‘re good. Not always so. When my eldest son was diagnosed with it as a baby, it terrified me. I lost count of the amount of times we ended up in the ER at night. I‘m so sorry for your loss. 1d

Vampire Blackberry Margarita:
Get your juicer ready for a homemade concoction to taste if your local grocery store does not have blackberry juice. The recipe uses Red Jacket Blackcurrant Apple Juice and adapted the classic Jose Cuervo margarita recipe. One part tequila, three parts juice and 1/2 cup of crushed ice. It's as easy as that! Make sure to find yourself a cute Margarita stir stick!!! Cupcake toppers work very nicely for this.

What a dark little read...
This book is very dark yes, and I wouldn't necessarily aim it as a children's book (YA). I think the target audience is a little young for some of the things that are discussed as well as presented in this book.
But this book is definitely binge-worthy and is a creepy little read for anyone looking for such things. It's well-written and well-thought-out. I do recommend it.

Well edited and well put together. Love all the artwork and poetry. The articles are very informative. This is a great annual magazine for those who like to read about the things that go bump in the night... and the people who bump back!

Pssst... guess who's on page 100! 😉
