Movies: 10 great horror movies to watch for Halloween weekend

Forget Christmas, tomorrow is the big one! And since it falls on a Saturday this year, Halloween can last all weekend! This means that you have all weekend to binge on horror movies, comics, games or whatever you fancy – however you fancy getting your fix. For me, it’ll be movies. I’ll be watching some […]

Sketches: Halloween’s Dr. Loomis

I was watching Halloween recently and admired (not for the first time) Donald Pleasence’s performance of Dr. Loomis. Loomis brings Haddonfield the message that Michael Myers has come home and that death will be stalking every street corner on Halloween night. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen this film but the speech Loomis gives […]

Tom Atkins: Halloween Hero

The idea of such a sacred franchise being remade without Harrison Ford would, in any other universe, have caused pandemonium. […]

Halloween VFX: The Mist

I’ve chosen Frank Darabont’s 2007 film as it appears to be strangely underrated yet it’s one of the best horror movies to come from the states in many years.Based on a Stephen King novella of the same name and not to be aligned with the other horror-movie-weather-phenomenon, The Fog, The Mist isn’t a grandstanding showcase of set pieces.
