Celebrating Halloween? Count yourself lucky, things are a whole lot better than they use to be. When I was a young teen in the early nineties nothing happened on October 31st. There were no ghost tours or spook events to visit, no Halloween memorabilia in the shops, no fancy dress parties to attend. But businesses have finally realised there’s money to be made from Halloween and though I’m no fan of blatant commercialism at least efforts are at last being made. Hit any of the major supermarkets and you can nab some great costumes and decorations, and even some tacky treats (Pringles Sour Scream and Chive, Asda’s Monstrous Monkey Nuts – none of them taste any different, but still). So with more options available to Halloween aficionados, what’s the ideal All Hallows Eve for the film fan?
