Happy Halloween!

Title sequence for Seconds, directed by John Frankenheimer.

To celebrate the creepy and the spooky, here's a short list of films we recommend for your Halloween viewing pleasure.

Seconds (1966) Directed by John Frankenheimer. With Rock Hudson, Frank Campanella, John Randolph, Frances Reid. Why? A beautifully shot creepy film with titles by Saul Bass — what else could you want?

Island of Lost Souls (1932) Directed by Erle C. Kenton. With Charles Laughton, Bela Lugosi, Richard Arlen, Leila Hyams. Why? Bela Lugosi. 'Nuf said.

The Shining (1966)
Directed by Stanley Kubrick. With Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd, Scatman Crothers. Why? Too many reasons to list but we'll start with one of the best trailers of all time.

The Birds (1966)
Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. With Rod Taylor, Tippi Hedren, Suzanne Pleshette, Jessica Tandy. Why? Hitchcock devoted his life to freaking you out while entertaining you. He deserves some props each October 31st.

And of course we're anxiously waiting for this one to come out. Hopefully before next Halloween...
