    Okay, so I said the FRIDAY THE 13TH contest would be the last of the month, but at HORROR DIGITAL we like to go that extra mile. Put the cherry on top, if you will. What we've got are 3 copies of everyone's favorite, TRICK'R TREAT, on Blu-ray, and all you've got to do to get one is tell us: What's your favorite horror anthology entry?

    Whether it's an episode from THE TWILIGHT ZONE or TALES FROM THE CRYPT, or a segment from CREEPSHOW or TRICK'R TREAT, let us know your favorite and why and you'll be entered to win.

    Make one post in this thread starting today, October 31st (Happy Halloween, by the way!) and you could be one of the three lucky winners when they are randomly drawn on Friday, November 6th.

    For me, there's nothing like getting in the horror movie mode than watching a short arc story that usually draws on some sort of urban legend or familiar horror concept. Horror anthologies are campfire stories struck to film, so tell us your favorite stories and let's make this a Halloween thread to remember!

    Segment #3 ("It's a Good Life") from Twilight Zone: The Movie. Always been a favorite of mine.

    "Lover's Vow" From "Tales from the Darkside : The Movie"

    Why, you ask? a few reasons :

    1. As an art guy, I was reasonably sympathetic to the main character and his situation

    2. The guy only wants to share everything with the woman he loves, and loses EVERYTHING in the process. Personally, I've found that's the way most relationships turn out, lol.

    3. The design of the creature is TERRIFYING. I saw this film when i was 7 years old, and the first shot of the creature, in the alley and cloaked in shadows, haunted me for MONTHS....Fast foward 15 years, and I pick up the movie on DVD and pop in it with the girlfriend for a nice movie night....UNTIL that damned creature showed up. I INSTANTLY became a frightened 7 year old again. Since then, I've watched the movie dozens of times, but the creature design still amazes me and creeps me out at the same time.

    Beyond all of that, it's just a perfect,. EC Comics style story, with a nice narrative and a perfect twist. Absolutely oustanding.

    Probably The Crate from Creepshow would be my personal favorite. I love it mainly for nostalgia reasons, and because it works so damn well!

    My choice is "Kwaidan". The scenery, the tales, the colors... Completely eerie and unusual.

    Mine would be "Blind Alleys" from the 1972 Amicus film Tales From the Crypt. I love the buildup and clever methods as the blind residents plot their revenge against the cruel hospital director.

    The Raft in Creepshow 2 (if that's the correct name of the segment, with the black plastic pool killing people :))!

    Definitely AMELIA from TRILOGY of TERROR. An absolute classic.

    I just saw this movie for the first time this past week and have to say that this story actually had me squirming in discomfort - something most modern horror movies can't seem to pull off. VERY impressive for a movie of this type from 1972!!!

    This is tough, but I'll go with Lonesome Death of Jordy Verill just 'cause I like saying 'lunkhead'.

    I've always really liked the scaling the wall of a skyskraper episode from Cat's Eye.

    "Something to Tide You Over" from the first Creepshow. I always loved Creepshow and Ted Danson is one of my favorite actors.

    I have always been a big fan of the first story from The House That Dripped Blood. Maybe because I watched it one of the very first times I ever was home alone late at night as a kid (I think I was 9 or 10) and it scared the shit outta me.
