Movies and Music for Halloween

"Young Frankenstein"
Why? Peter Boyle mumbling "Puttin' on the Ritz", Marty Feldman's mobile hump, and Madeline Kahn (as if that's not enough by itself).
"Rocky Horror Picture Show"
Gotta love Susan Sarandon nearly naked, Tim Curry in a garter belt, and Meatloaf on a hog.
"Motel Hell"
One line: "What's in them there sausages?"
Classic
"The Exorcist"
Pea soup, spinning heads, and lots of trouble with stairs.& Rent the original, or go to a real theater and see the re-release and its gloriously gory new footage.
"The Shining"
"Here's Johnny!" Be sure to get Jack's original, not the Steven Weber TV remake. The TV version is more frightening, though, because some studio exec actually thought it was a good idea.
"Halloween"
Two words - Jamie Lee.
"Carrie"
May be Stephen King's best. Almost scared us out of attending the prom (no, really, it wasn't that we didn't have a date).
Cool
"Seven"
We didn't sleep for several nights after this one. Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman are electric. Kevin Spacey is beyond creepy.
"Cape Fear"
The Gregory Peck/Robert Mitchum classic or the Nick Nolte/Robert DeNiro remake This one will keep you awake, too... and on dry land.
"Scream"
It re-ignited the genre with a cast that runneth over with young Hollywood.
Halloween is almost here - it's that magical time to let loose and enjoy the
Fall Holiday Spirit. If you're planning a party, or just getting dressed for the occasion, why not put on some Fright Songs to help you get in the mood? We asked our ghoulish pals to see what Boo-tiful Tunes they find Spooky. Here's what we "Dug Up":
