Q: Why did the Vampire read the Wall Street Journal?
A: He heard it had great circulation.
I love Halloween and always will. Next to Christmas, it's my favorite holiday. Costumes, free candy, watching "It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown"! & bloody movies-- what's not to love?! And for a hardcore horror fan as myself October is when all us horror movie fanatics go insane.
And speaking of movies, I came across a list titled "Top Five Horror Films"
If his huge built doesn’t intimidate you, his mask made of human skin and chainsaw will surely send you scampering away. Leatherface, or Jedidiah “Jed” Sawyer, first appeared in the Tobe Hooper-helmed “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre” (1974) and portrayed by Gunnar Hansen. Hooper reportedly described the villain as a “big baby” who apparently was only driven to kill whenever he feels threatened. A slasher film in every sense of the word, “Texas Chain Saw Massacre” portrayed Leatherface as a merciless serial killer who acts upon the instructions of his dysfunctional, cannibalistic family.
John Carpenter’s 1978 classic, “Halloween” introduced the public to the masked and knife-wielding Michael Myers. Having murdered his older sister when he was only a young boy, Michael Meyers proves that he really is evil and insane as he returns to his hometown 15 years after and kills off more youngsters.
Just like Leatherface and Michael, the physically deformed Jason Voorhees of the “Friday the 13th” (1980) series hides behind a mask – this time, a hockey goalie mask – and wields a sort of signature weapon, a machete. First portrayed by Ari Lehman, Jason famously kills off teenagers who goes to Camp Crystal Lake. Jason is the brainchild of Victor Miller, with a little help from Ron Kurz, Sean S. Cunningham, and Tom Savini.
Freddy Krueger (My personal fave-- a villain that can kill you in your dreams!)
Unlike the hulking mass murdered aforementioned, Freddy Krueger of Wes Craven's “A Nightmare of Elm Street” (1984) fame is a bit on the lanky side and is a spirit. His severely deformed face isn’t a mask; instead it’s all ugly burnt skin, the result of being burned by angry parents whose children he had killed. With his trademark fedora, red-and-green striped sweater, and clawed glove, Freddy enters the dreams of teenagers in his old neighborhood and kills them as an act of revenge. In the film, Freddy was first portrayed by Robert Englund.
Dr. Hannibal Lecter
The villains in this list so far are, well, just as menacing as they look. But not Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Don’t let his prim and proper looks deceive you, for he may just be the most unsettling person you’ll ever meet and (hopefully not the last). Hannibal is educated, smart, well-mannered, and has sophisticated taste that applies not only to art and music but also to the things he eat. Hannibal, to put it bluntly, loves human meat. He prepares his meals himself, gourmet-style.
The role of Hannibal has been played by three other actors on film and on TV, but none of them as memorable as Anthony Hopkins’ version in the Oscar-winning “The Silence of the Lambs” by Jonathan Demme. Meanwhile, the character of Hannibal itself was created by author Thomas Harris and first appeared in his 1981 novel, “Red Dragon.”
What are some of your favorite horror films and villains?
Each year I always make it a point to mention that no child wants to be given any health related snacks in their treat bag. Kids only want chocolates and the sweet stuff! Should you decide to hand out those tiny, little boxes of raisins, fruit or even dental floss, then by all means I hope a tiny little devil toilet papers your house.
Each year I also post a music video related to this awesome day. Some past videos have been:
Rob Zombie: I'm Your Boggie Man
Pet Shop Boys: Heart
Timbaland/Nelly/SoShy- The Morning After Dark.
This year I decided to kick it old school, "A Nightmare On My Street" by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince. An actual video for the song at one time did exist but the producers of "A Nightmare On Elm Street" sued DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince's record label for copyright infringement, forcing the label to destroy a music video produced for the song. For a description of the once video, click on the above highlighted link.
All that was posted on youtube was the lyrical version to the song. I love how The Fresh Prince refers to Freddy Krueger as Fred!!
