Who remembers when the really scary movies were the ones with Vincent Price and how spooky it was to walk home from the Saturday matinee
after seeing House of Wax, The Fly, The Pit and the Pendulum, or The Tingler, just to name a few? Then there was the one of the first 3-D movies, 13 Ghosts. It was really something for its time with the special glasses you had to wear to see the ghosts!

I remember one Halloween we were all watching House on the Haunted Hill on TV and I had gone in the kitchen to make some popcorn. Unknown to me my mom had put on this translucent face mask I had, gone outside to the window, and as I rounded the corner to walk back into the living room, she ran her fingernails down the screen. I let out a yell and popcorn went flying everywhere!
