hallo7There is nothing like a really creepy movie to get you in the Halloween mood.  I like slow-paced spooky thrillers as opposed to the gory horror-fests that seem to be all the rage today.  But the scariest movie I have ever seen is “Burnt Offerings” which I saw on television as a small child.

I have never seen the movie since, as I am afraid to, so I can’t tell you if it holds up.  But I am guessing a film from 1976 does not play well with present day sensibilities.  But there is something about the impression a film can have on you as a child that you carry through your life.

Anyway, watching something spooky with all the lights out is a fun way to spend a Halloween weekend evening.  Boo!
