Halloween has become more popular over the last ten years or so in the UK, though when I was a kid trick 'n' treating was something which just appeared on TV shows and films from across the pond. I have always been partial to the odd scary flick (scary not gory as that in my mind is not really the crux of Halloween) and this year my sister invited me over to her flat for an evening of appropriately themed flicks and munchies...who was I to turn that down.
A merry ol' time was had by all....
Guess the movie?
Next up Ghostwatch and when this aired in the UK way back in 1992 the docu-style approach caused such a kerfuffle that it has never been shown on British TV again...it still manages to send a shiver down the spine of those who saw it at the time.
A few witches fingers for munching on in the evening
Appropriately themed atmosphere
A table of fully unhealthy snackage and fried stuffs...yum
My sisters first ever attempt at carving a pumpkin...pretty darn cool I would say
Archie, however, not quite as sure
Then the sneaky little bugger decided to half inch my drink while I was partaking in a rather sweat inducing coupla rounds of 'let's dance' on the Wii with my sister-in-law-to-be...fortunately it was just water and not gin.
So that was my weekend...gigglesome and non-sensical and only scary when my sister insisted on watching X-Factor ...oh, the humanity!
