The Halloween Experience

There are two ways to look at Halloween.

You can make it fun with great costumes at a party with monster music.

Or you can make it scary. This tribute trailer to The Shining should put you in the mood.

  1. Love both videos. Maybe we could make Halloween a little fun and a little scary. Happy Halloween.

  3. Sorry, for some reason my clickable link didn't work. So, try (or follow the link in my bio).

  4. The costume with the exposed spinal column was the absolute FREAKIEST!

    Gotta love Jack!

    All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

  5. Thanks for posting the videos. I absolutely loved The Shining. It was the first really scary movie I took my oldest daughter to when she was about 12. We both had nightmares about "redrum"

    Happy Halloween everyone.

  6. Some of those costumes were really good. I especially liked the birthing head and the guy with the back split open. Wow.

    And The Shining is just plain scary. I've never watched the whole movie.
