Approaching the Land of Phantoms…

October means Halloween. Yes, other important things happen in October (wedding anniversaries and… um… and Halloween!) but for me Octoer has always been about the build-up to the 31st. Hell, sometimes the night itself is a bit of a let-down, but for thirty-one days I can relish in my love for macabre decorations (of the goofy and/or spooky variety), re-read Roger Zelazny’s brilliant pastiche/ode to the month (A Night in the Lonesome October), Jill Tracy’s wonderful score to Murnau’s Nosferatu (Into the Land of Phantoms)… and horror movies.

Last year I gave my livejournal readers at least 1 horror trailer a day.

This year, I move it over to the Blog, complete with a retrospective. So you’ll be getting a brand new entry, carefully selected and lovingly intro’d by yours truly… as well as last years- for them that missed it or like revisiting some of the best trailers ever thrown out for horror films.

Some are spooky, some are cheesy, some are funny, and some are downright terrifying.

Can you dig it?
