3 Haiku for Halloween

Halloween is here
Holy weaning light to fright
in a dark’ning time

Great pumpkin glows bright
Horror visage narrow'd eyes
Jack-o-lantern laughs

Little humans haunt
Costumed terrors are alight
Offer tricks or treats

Favorite movies – halloween

So I’m sure we all have different tastes.  But here are some of my favorite movies to watch as halloween approaches each year.   Running the gamut from musical to silent I tend to like the more “nontraditional” films.   Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy yadda yadda yadda just more over-used characters.   So without further adieu in no particular order Here’s my 10 favorite movies to watch for Halloween.
