Halloween Screenings Continue

Amazon Prime is the gift that keeps giving this Halloween season with an incredible selection of low-budget but beloved (by me) horror and science fiction films. I just watched Earth VS The Spider which I haven’t seen since the late great Doctor Shock would present these opuses on WPHL in the Philadelphia area.

The Horror of Party Beach

The Horror of Party BeachOne of my all time favorite, so-bad-it’s-good, horror films is available in a beautiful, high definition transfer on Amazon’s Prime. The Horror of Party Beach is  the only beach party movie to have been made in Connecticut, and other than it’s New England location, it shares more than a passing resemblance to Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. I often watch Party Beach as part of double bill with it’s more famous knock-off as part of an Independence Day celebration, but it looks like Amazon added a lot of horror content for Halloween. Get in the spirit of the holiday with some schlock!

The Black Cat

Black CatA friendly little fellow that greeted me on my way to work was the inspiration for this vector illustration that I worked up in Affinity Designer. My feline friend didn’t look quite as sinister, but Halloween is just around the corner so I thought I would get into the spirit of the season.
