This is a kickass film that I actually just watched again the other night. The bloodcurdling calls of the vamps in this one is truly unforgettable. This is a movie that I like to watch again and again. Here's the description from the 30 Days of Night website at Sony Pictures.
Josh Hartnett (The Black Dahlia, Pearl Harbor) crosses over to the dark side in this bone-chilling adaptation of the cult-hit graphic novel, brought to the screen in all its demonic glory. In a small Alaskan town, thirty days of night is a natural phenomenon. Very few outsiders visit, until a band of bloodthirsty, deathly pale vampires mark their arrival by savagely attacking sled dogs. But soon they find there are much more satisfying thirst-quenchers about: human beings. One by one, the townspeople succumb to a living nightmare, but a small group survives -- at least for now. The vampires use the dark to their advantage, and surviving this cold hell is a game of cat and mouse...and screams.

If you're looking for a fright, The Strangers might be the movie for you. This one had me chewing my fingernails throughout the whole movie. Here's the description from the official site:
Explore your worst fears imaginable with this shocking suspense thriller inspired by disturbing true events. After a 4 a.m. knock at the door and a haunting voice, Kristen McKay (Liv Tyler) and James Hoyt's (Scott Speedman) remote getaway becomes a psychological night of terror as three masked strangers invade. Now they must go far beyond what they thought themselves capable of if they hope to survive.
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres tonight, October 12 at 9/8c on AMC.
This season's 16 episodes will air in two-parts. The first eight episodes will air beginning tonight, and the final eight episodes will return in February 2015.
End of last season, the group found themselves trapped on in a train car with a rather bleak outlook ahead of them.
Season 5 picks up shortly thereafter. What follows is a story that weaves the true motives of the people of Terminus with the hopeful prospect of a cure in Washington, D.C., the fate of the group’s lost comrades, as well as new locales, new conflicts, and new obstacles in keeping the group together and staying alive.
Stories will break apart and intersect. The characters will find love and hate. Peace and conflict. Contentment and terror. And, in the quest to find a permanent, safe place to call home, one question will haunt them:
After all they’ve seen, all they’ve done, all they’ve sacrificed, lost, and held on to no matter what the cost…
Who do they become?
In looking for ideas for this year's costume, I came across a few videos by Alexys Fleming. She is a self-taught makeup artist and is amazingly talented.
Her videos all note the instructions and supplies used to create the look. Oh, and did I mention that she pairs her videos up with kick-ass music that fits each theme.
Below is her video on YouTube for her clown makeup tutorial. Check out her YouTube Channel and subscribe for more costume makeup tutorials. She has some gruesome ones looking for some shock value.
Wrap up a hot dog in true mummy fashion in this fun Halloween take on classic Crescent Dogs.
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
2 1/2 slices American cheese, quartered (2.5 oz)
10 large hot dogs
Mustard or ketchup, if desired
1. Heat oven to 375°F
2. Unroll dough; separate at perforations, creating 4 rectangles. Press perforations to seal. If using dough sheet: Unroll dough; cut into 4 rectangles.
3. With knife or kitchen scissors, cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 pieces, making a total of 40 pieces of dough. Slice cheese slices into quarters (1/2 slice cheese, cut in half).
4. Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each hot dog and 1/4 slice of cheese to look like "bandages," stretching dough slightly to completely cover hot dog. About 1/2 inch from one end of each hot dog, separate "bandages" so hot dog shows through for "face." On ungreased large cookie sheet, place wrapped hot dogs (cheese side down); spray dough lightly with cooking spray.
5. Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot. With mustard, draw features on "face."
