We've already had five contests this month, our most ever at HORRORDIGITAL.COM, but what the hell, it's Halloween, why not another? Our final contest for October Madness aims to let viewers into what you did or are doing this Halloween weekend. Tell us and you could win the acclaimed LET THE RIGHT ONE IN on DVD.

What did you dress up as? Did you go to a party? Did you stay at home and watch movies? Which ones? Did you play the curmudgeon at home telling kids to get the hell off your porch? Do kids even trick or treat anymore? Let us know how your Halloween weekend is going or went in a single post in this thread to win. Posting pictures of your costume is encouraged, too!

Three winners will receive a DVD of Magnet's arty vampire import, LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, recently remade as LET ME IN. The winners will be randomly selected from the posts in this thread.

The contest will run a full week, ending November 7th, 2010.

So, let's hear it...how was your Halloween 2010?

Stayed home and watched movies all weekend. Working on my month long horror/Halloween marathon. Ended up watching 105 movie, 56 TV eps. and 8 others (documentary/shorts) within the entire month.

There isn't a lot of Halloween excitement here, surprising for a reasonably large city- it just doesn't seem to be part of the culture here.
So I'll just be staying home today and watching horor flicks on my projector (aiming to end my marathon with at least 72 films). And dressing my dogs up, of course... :D

I just watched a few horror films, while my husband was at a bar watching the KC Chiefs game. Didn't dress up, but I probably will next year, and when I wasn't watching movies, I was on the internet, and had 3 of my 4 cats beside me.

I was at a Halloween party last night. It was a last minute thing, andI almost decided against going because I didn't have a costume - until I remembered that I have tons of theatrical makeup. I went as a zombie (in a wife-beater, so that I could paint purple bruises on the back of my arms, shoulders, and neck). It was great fun.

I've spent today sleeping off my hangover. I'll be watching that Invasion of the Body Snatchers thing with Nicole Kidman in a few - not the best way to close Halloween, perhaps, but I'm at my parents' house, and that's the horror movie they have.

Today I work. So I had half of a great weekend.

Like Uncle Al once sang: To me every day is Halloween, but for the weekend I did a few fun things. Zombie movie marathon all day Saturday, Halloween movie marathon all Sunday and capping the night off with the Walking Dead. Cannot ask for a better time!

I went to see Paranormal Activity 2 at the theatre - watched several other horror movies both by myself and with friends this weekend - handing out treats to the kiddies here shortly- and that is about it- gonna try to catch Walking Dead but might DVR it.

Went to BJJ this morning, attempted to cut grass afterwards, watched House of a 1,000 Corpses, made some tofu and shrimp for dinner...now waiting for street urchin to come by the house and offer to trade prayers for the souls of the dead in exchange for small raisin cakes. This is our first Halloween in our new house so we have clue if we will get a big turn out.

Movies, movies, and more movies! Last night: The Monster Squad and Creepshow on Blu plus Creature from the Black Lagoon. Tonight, the original TCM on Blu, Bava's Black Sabbath, the first episode of The Walking Dead, and hopefully a couple other treats I haven't decided on yet.

We don't celebrate Halloween here, but these last years, marketing has been shoving it down our throats to sell candy, costumes, etc. As a result, we have some kids asking for candy and me ignoring them (lights out). I plan on watching some movies, already done watching one, as typically cable tv programs a lot of horror movies on this day.

Had a good weekend in Montreal watching some horror including two in theatres. Had to leave my ex-girlfriend's in Dorval at about 11:30 this morning. Two hour bus ride and I just listened to some podcasts. Arrived back in Ottawa and ate too many "all-you-can-eat" wings. Won't do that for awhile. Have been just listening to some reviews around the apt. and getting set for a long day of work tomorrow. I plan on watching at least some of The Walking Dead pilot tonight and PVR'ing the rest if I don't make it through in one shot.

I was at home cooking, procrastinating, and watching heavy metal dvds (Immortal, Big 4 show in Bulgaria), and the world series.

I am still trying to decide which scary movie to watch tonight :)

I went to a Chiefs (NFL) game dressed up as a Chiefs fan. They won in overtime 13-10 so it was a great time. When my wife and I got home we took the kids Trick r' Treating. My oldest was Spiderman and his brother was a monkey. They had a blast and the weather was just warm enough. It was a great day. I wish I wasn't so exhausted from the game. I would have liked to have watched Halloween (1978). Oh well, I enjoy cuddling in bed and watching "Rules of Engagement" with the wife.

Happy Halloween everybody! :banana:

Brought the kids trick or treating around to local businesses earlier in the day (super scores!) then came home and watched "Great Pumpkin" and "Garfield's Halloween Adventure". After that we made pizzas and passed out candy to neighborhood kids. At about 6 we took off for some neighborhood trick or treating ourselves (super scores again!).
I was Huckle Cat (from the Richard Scary books per my son's request), my son was Obi-wan Kenobe, my daughter was a centipede (no, not the Human Centipede) and my wife was Storm Trooper Queen Elizabeth (exactly like it sounds).
Right now my wife is trying to put a very sugar high child down for bed. After she's done there we're gonna watch Poltergeist.

Totally awesome Halloween this year :)

I moved into a new place since last Halloween, a school bus stops in front of my place and a million kids get off. So I figured I would get a bunch of trick r treaters..... I bought a bunch of candy, carved a sweet jackelatern and put on my Jawa costume....and only got one trick r' treater. Some kid with a bad case downs syndrom in spiderman pajamas that didnt even say 'trick r' treat'.

Now I'm drinking vodka, eating the Halloween candy I couldnt give away and watching Season of the Witch. Since I'm kinda bummed that only one person appreciated my Halloween efforts, so I've added some pictures in an attempt to validate my work.

I stayed home and watched Romero's Living Dead films and a couple of Halloween themed episodes of TV shows. There were no trick or treaters this year, so I ended up eating most of the candy.

Friday - Went as a tap dancing vampire to a dance, got drunk and slept over at this guy's place.
Saturday - Watched a movie and had sex with the same guy
Sunday - Returned home to study and watch Slumber Party Massacre II twice! Once by itself, another with the Juliette Cummins and friends commentary.

Overall, a strange weekend, and boring actual Halloween night. But whatever. It was cool.

One minute and it's over... :(
Anyway, last night was all about parties and today I'm hungover. Watched Psycho on TV, and also Salem's Lot (great music and scary vampires) and fragments of Halloween 3 and 4. Also watched the Scream Awards (so lame but entertaining and got excited with the Scream 4 preview). The bad thing about Halloween is that it happens so fast! The good thing is that here in Mexico we also have "el día de los muertos" monday and tuesday, and there's no school and no work, so I'll be able to enjoy my horror movie marathon.

My wife took the 2-year old trick-or-treating. I stayed home with the 8 month old and handed out candy. This year the kids were to come by on Saturday night instead of Sunday. I don't think everyone got the message, as there weren't as many trick-or-treaters this year compared to last. On the official Halloween night, after we got the kids in bed, we watched Halloween II.

Watched Mad Monster Party, every single episode of The Simpsons Halloween Specials, watched every Roseanne Halloween episode and finished the night off with The Walking Dead.
I also dressed up as a ghost and handed out candy to the few kids that came to the door.
A good night overall!

Watched some horror before 1:00pm then it was Football until the 8:00pm game was over.(switched back & forth with the World Series) Then some more horror, before I went to bed.

Gave out candy in between.

Busy weekend. On Friday went up to Salem to see a showing of Die You Zombie Bastards with my friend's Misfits surf tribute band, Crimson Ghosts, playing before they showed the movie.

Saturday went to a Halloween party. I was feeling a bit lazy about dressing up so I just wore my old gorilla suit.

Sunday watched both the Patriots and Steelers games and then The Walking Dead.

Of course sprinkled throughout the weekend was more horror viewing. I'm pretty fried right now so I can't even really remember what the hell I watched.

Halloween tends to be a big deal and this year was no exception. After getting my sons friend, we finished making what he needed for his costume. A quick dinner or pizza and then we readied the goodies and set up the plastic frankenstein in the yard and lit up the pumpkin. It was a slow night for trick or treaters mostly due to the cold temp but we saw some good costumes. It was good to see the classic monsters represented too, like Frankenstein and Dracula. Later on we watched Last Man on Earth and Tenebre.

This month although extremely busy and tiring was a blast! I love Halloween and get excited every year when October hits. We had our annual Halloween kegger where I dressed up as the flying monkey from Wizard of Oz and drank way too damn much. I also watched a crap load of movies (October is a great excuse to watch nothing but horror flicks), breaking my record from last year including 6 on Halloween day with a bunch of friends and a whole lot of pumpkin spice beer. It was also as always great checking out this site every day thanks to all the awesome reviews, lists, and contests. And of course, it's always a lot of fun seeing what everyone else is watching and adding a bunch of movies to my want lists. Can't wait until next year!

First Halloween in a new house, so we didn't know what to expect (or have a budget for anything elaborate). We had my parents over for dinner (grilled some burgers), then set up for ToT. I have a cargo van for work, so I opened up the back doors, hung a shower curtain liner splattered with blood, and waited inside dressed as a werewolf. My GF was dressed as a gypsy at a table next to the van, passing out candy. After kids got their candy, I would burst out from behind the curtain and scare the poop out of them. Good times. Capped it all off w/ a viewing of the original Halloween on Blu-ray (looking better than I've ever seen it before, I might add).
