The thread is horror movie holiday and not holiday horror movie, right? I've got to go with Halloween. The whole month of October totally gets me in the mood for all things John Carpenter, Hammer and Universal Classic Monsters. Living here in New England certainly helps too by lending that horror movie atmosphere to real life with the changing leaves, drop in temperature and shorter days. With all the orange, yellow and red on the trees, there are some days when it's almost as if everything takes on the hue of the foliage. Totally Dean Cundey. The world around me just turns into the perfect setting for a horror movie.
