A Few Trips for All Hallows Eve Traps–Mind the sound wires, please.

I can’t seem to get too far from horror films for this All Hallows Eve theme just yet.  All of this could change, be revised soon after it hits the blog casa- or not. I’ve kept close to things that give me the willies, which might not be the same things that give the rest of you the willies.  There are a lot of strange things going for the scare-the-hair-off-you brass ring for the picking and biting.

While I wish there was much more music in the form of a traditional soundtrack, the short film Echa makes the most of musical and other sounds in order to create a very effective atmosphere.  When the film fades to black keep on listening until the very end for the full musical effect.

Echoes is the interweaving story of Kasia and Sebastian, a young Polish couple, taken on a metaphysical journey that combats [combines] Polish history, culture and mythology.

Kasia, a young philosophy student, discovers a local history book that stimulates her imagination, forcing her to confront the tragedy of the past manifested in the walls that surround her.

Sebastian and a group of friends plan to rob a train using a deadly sleeping gas, only for their worst fears to materialize in the form of a Polish myth.

This allegorical and surreal look at Polish culture as seen through the eyes of a younger generation is both terrifying and strange.

*The absolutely great thing about the film 28 Days Later is that about midway through the film it turns neatly from one kind of horror film into an even more terrifying one based on human nature rather than grisly zombies.  Prior to this point you’ve got plenty to actually think about in regards to survival issues. After the film worm turns, well, there’s an exploration of things that may stick in your brain-pan much longer than the zombie scenes.  The trailer is to provide a look at the film. The theme –well, it’s a great piece of music by itself in many ways.

What’s a Halloween post without a ghost song? Hmmm? Something about this lovely videos just kept tugging me back to it. Hat’s off to Max Ablitzer for his crows.

Haunted by a dark memory from strange places : a crow on a pole, a mansion by the sea, a lighthouse in the fog. Long forgotten ghosts from the past visiting me, and I am missing someone so much… A haunting violin playing dark and melancholic tunes. (c) Max Ablitzer

What can I say except the film trailers for Night Watch and Day Watch are pure self-indulgence on my part.  If you’re looking for some film entertainment to get serious about for the dark holy day’s night, then you might enjoy Night Watch and Day Watch as much as I do. Yes, they’re Russian flicks-and yes, they do live up the trailers.  Careful that the visuals don’t hypnotize you into forgetting the story line. Hmm. Light versus Dark eternally.

Oh this Swedish vampire film takes the entire cake-walk in my movie book list. I have not seen the American remake.  Usually American remakes of great foreign films are very disappointing. Though I have heard this time around it’s not. But, if I’m going to watch a film more than once, well, I’ll Let the Right One In be the best one.

For now, I conclude with the music of the man who headlined my theme choice, Warren Zevon, with his musical rendition of the horror of the ghosts of  war-zones everywhere.

Oh yeah, you WANT to catch Willow’s Screaming post before it bites you.  I had no idea Annie Lennox ‘did’ vampires. Then again what do you want from a Woman who can sing for a Man the way only Annie can.  Oh and yes, True Blood will be joining Being Human for creep fixes.

You want MUSIC? Bearspawprint has it in spades. I think The Bear has been saving up for this theme. Yes, I do indeed. She’s been collecting all sorts of sound and sight goodies in her swamplands.

Okay, I dare anyone to find a theme for which Johnny can NOT find an R.E.M. song.  Seriously, he pulls one out of his musical vaults every time.  It’s great.

Ha! Deborah really got into the SWING of this Hallow Eves Theme wonderfully. She got dance fun galore with beauty, grace and a hell of a lot talented folks from The Corpse Bride to Labyrinth with the Boy Bowie. Oh yeah!

      28 weeks isn’t bad for a follow-up film, Consider this, how else would I have ever discovered that we both ENJOY Being Human–and films like 28 days later? Hm?
      I am feeling very well-treated by the light of this month’s moon.
      ou ou ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

      Just get your ‘poetic mind’ groove in sync Johnny. Hey, you’ve got the rock and roll foundation down pat. I’m not complaining. 🙂
      Business document? LOL, Hardly with Rage Against the Machine raging on.
