List O' Links Halloween 2017 Edition!
Without the Internet, Halloween celebrations like the Countdown wouldn't be possible, so I'm very thankful for the 'Net's existence. You will be too, as you peruse the following awesome Halloween Web sites throughout the month!
First up, I can't put off mentioning the awesomeness that is Dinosaur Dracula. Site owner Matt has been counting down to Halloween since 2003 at his old site X-Entertainment, and he continues the tradition in bigger and better fashion every year at Dino Drac. Videos, junk food reviews, his music jukebox, and his wonderful writing are all the ways Matt will make you feel warm and spooky inside. Go to his site now!
If you're a big fan of Halloween music--and I know you are--check out Halloween Hits. The mysterious curator offers a great set of Halloween tunes every year at the site, which is only functional throughout the month of October. If you try to visit on September 30th or November 1st, you'll be out of luck! I suggest you rush on over and download all 14 volumes (!) of great music, ranging from hard rock to spooky standards of the 30s and 40s. You never know what you'll find!
Cable channel AMC once again brings its FearFest marathon of horror movies to the small screen. Unfortunately, it's only one week this year, but it's still worth it. Check out this article from Bloody Disgusting for the full lineup!
While we're at it, here are the Halloween programming options from Turner Classic Movies and FreeForm's 13 Nights of Halloween as well!
If you're a fan of both Halloween and classic TV like I am, you'll love these photos of classic TV stars in Halloween costumes!
On October 27th, CBS will air a one-hour animated special loosely based on Michael Jackson's song "Thriller," complete with an appearance by Michael in the special's finale. OK.
Finally, this site lets you know what America's favorite Halloween candy is by state. While I don't enjoy Sour Patch Kids myself, I'm not surprised they came in first place in my current state, New Jersey.
Thanks for visiting!
