Watched Poltergeist II the other day (great movie, but the first was awesome), and happened to pause for a break on this comical frame:

Oh, you think your pumpkin is scary? THIS is how they did it in early 20th Century Ireland.
raditional (and utterly terrifying) Halloween turnip jack-o-lantern carved in Ireland in the early 20th century. Note the horrifying teeth.

Ah, the 80’s…when movies had their own cheese-tastic rap theme songs. Take Monster Squad for example. What’s your favorite 80’s horror movie?

Posted by proxy from Dana’s “stuff to blog” queue while she is on medical hiatus. She reads and appreciates all comments…and apologizes for not being able to respond at the moment.

Pete Hawley’s Halloween Monsters are the most adorable monsters I have seen. Dana thought so too, and here you have them.  They are probably an American Greetings punch-out set from the 1960’s, at the height of the Monster Craze.
