  • Early childhood scares

    Some of my favorite Halloween memories I can remember are watching scary movies with my brothers. We used to have a local program where an actor was dressed as a vampire and would introduce the movie. Similar to what Svengoolie does now. (without the comedy shtick) Without sounding too old, the movies I remember were the original Frankenstein, Wolfman, Invisible man, Creature from the Black Lagoon. They were created in the '30s I believe, but already classics in the '60s when I watched them. They would start later in the evening on a Sat night, so it was close to midnight when they were finished. I would go to bed wondering if some creature was about to crash through my bedroom door and attack! I will occasionally see these classics on today, but I think for the most part they have been replaced with the slasher type movies. Remember younger generation, you can be scared only using your imagination.
