Sunday Sesh: The Halloween Extravaganza

Halloween costumes! Pumpkin carvings! Spoopy movie recommendations! Scary soundtracks! Pranks pulled! Halloween is on the worst of all possible days this year (Monday, ugh), so most of you are probably celebrating this weekend. This is your Halloween megathread! Share with us your good, bad, and ugly of All Hallow’s Eve.

Unfortunately, I have neither costume nor pumpkin to share with you this year. I’ve spent most of my weekend bedridden from some sort of sinus sickness. It’s entirely possible that my sinuses have exploded and are allowing my brain to leak out of my nose. That would look pretty brutal in a horror film. I’d watch that.

I don’t have any horror movie recommendations either. I’ve seen pretty much every crappy horror flick on Netflix, and nothing has really stood out. I Am the Pretty Thing that Lives in the House is tedious, The Beast of XMoor lacked substance, and Bleed makes zero sense whatsoever. At least I have this spoopy skeleton dance to watch.

I do, however, have tunes to share. Classic tunes. Tunes that bring the spoop. Whodini sure knows how to set the mood.

Alright, freaks. It’s your time to come out. What are you doing this Halloween?

    Drinking, vidya, reading a book and watching people get concussions.

    • mother☆shabubu

      watching people get concussions.

      So football or hockey?

      • EsusMoose

        Football, have yet to get interested into hockey, there’s probably a good number of activities that could have been inferred so my bad

        • mother☆shabubu

          It’s actually somewhat interesting this year. A lot of young talented forwards playing creatively, and a lot of injured goalies has made it slightly higher scoring and more unintentionally Bettman-ized.

      • Or watching drunk Halloween-partiers fall down in the street outside.

        • more beer

          Sounds like Cap Hill to me on a normal night.

          • Precisely. Going to Sliceworks to satisfy drunk munchies was a bad idea, but I did it.

          • more beer

            You should have just eaten at Vine St Pub. I told you yesterday the food is outstanding there.

          • It was a spur of the moment decision on the way home, otherwise I totally would have.

          • more beer

            Well that is on the way. I was always pass that place up for Benny Blancos though.

  • mother☆shabubu

    What I do every Halloween: act superior to grown ass children people who celebrate it, while deep down I wallow in utter loneliness and nothingness.

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    WHODINI!!!!!

  • Joaquin Stick

    My SO carved one that actually makes sense, so I carved a Randy Marsh to even things out. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0228505db567366a8a948cf3f4f99d7691855a7a73b94c0976497007a5e87a27.jpg

    Sleeping. Contently.

    There are extremely few movies that actually unnerve me. If anyone has recommendations for some TRULY creepy flicks, don’t hold back.
    A movie I did think was rather ominous, was this one:

    • I fucking love this movie.

      http://i.imgur.com/QvfeI5Z.gif

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Really one of the few horror movies that managed to creep me out from start to finish. Not because there were a lot of scares, rather because it had a genuinely menacing tone.

        “I live in the weak and the wounded, doc.”

      • Scrimm

        I love this gif

    • Scrimm

      Same, very few get to me. Event Horizon was one, more the concept than the movie itself.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Event Horizon is a movie I have at home. I really need to give it a watch again sometime soon. The movie as a whole didn’t really creep me out, but I found that “liberate tuteme ex inferis” to be one of the most unnerving and eerie scenes ever in a big budget horror movie. I do like the movie quite a bit though and it’s very disappointing to see Anderson keep on churning out the watered down shite he has been making following Event Horizon.

        • Scrimm

          Can’t stand any of Anderson’s other stuff, but yeah I like that one.Maybe I just saw it in the right frame of mine.

        • Rob M

          Yeah, but lets be honest…if we could make a million dollar career out of filming big budget fanfiction movies about our wives/girlfriends we’d all be fucking doing it too

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Oh yeah, as much as I dislike any of his movies save for Event Horizon, I don’t hold it against him personally. Dude’s gotta get paid; and doing brainless blockbusters pays well.

    • GoatForest

      The Witch was cool. Great atmosphere. Not terribly scary, though.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        I’ve been meaning to check that movie out.
        I wish they would make an actually frightening movie again though. The first half of Sinister was effective at creeping me out, but then suddenly they decide to do these ridiculous scenes with those annoying little brats creeping around while giving the boogeyman – who was actually effective when they only showed glimpses of him in the first half, but started to look like a Slipknot-reject in the second half – way too much screen time.
        Could make the same case for both Conjuring movies. Some of the best and most effective jump scare scenes in mainstream horror, but at the same time both movies are filled to the brim with cringe husband-wife dialogues and flashy CGI Poltergeist-like set pieces that take away from the creep factor. It also doesn’t help that the boogeyman in Conjuring 2 looks like Marilyn Manson in a nun’s outfit.

      • atchdav

        I saw The Witch in theatre. Really good, though not very scary.

    • Al Bundy

      You may have seen it, but martyrs never fails to creep me out.

  • That cover photo gave me some cancer.

  • Kevin Nash’s Jackknife

    I have off tomorrow but I have an appointment at 5:45 so I can’t do much.

    • Howard Dean

      Unless that appointment is at 5:45 am tomorrow and you expect it to last for twelve hours, I fail to see how you “can’t do much” with a day off from work and a single appointment on the docket. Carpe diem/carpe noctem, JJD/KNJ! (just don’t tear a quad).

  • Scrimm

    I’m working, dressed as a grumpy fuck who hates everything.

    • more beer

      So it is a normal day for you.

      • Scrimm

        Yessir

    • mother☆shabubu

      So you’re dressed as NOPEsus?

      • Scrimm

        HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHA YES!!

  • Óðinn
  • Dave Vincent’s Perm

    I’ll be trying to see how convincing a recreation of the Transilvanian Hunger cover I can make with the photo filters on my phone. Shit, I mean doing maths work.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      You better post pictures here!

    • Abradolf Lincler

      how many candelabras do you own

  • AeonsOvChaos

    I will drink with friends and I will be very unpleasant, It’s my costume, being a drunk, sick bastard.

    • Abradolf Lincler

      i plan on just rocking my most evil garb and blasting my most blasty bm out the windows for anyone trick or treating

    • more beer

      That it is a good costume.

  • I’ll be at work doing a piss poor job because I gave my two weeks notice yesterday and am officially in i dont give a fuck mode

    • Scrimm

      It’s hard to put in effort when you’re a short timer.

      • The temptation to just not show up at all is extraordinary, but I don’t want to burn bridges.

        • Scrimm

          Yeah it is, been there. Hope you’re moving on to something better

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      You’ve had more jobs in the past two years than I’ve had in the past 20 years

      • I’ve always got my eye out for something better.

  • Kevin Nash’s Jackknife

    I’ve got work today but I might pick up the new version of Rocksmith for the Xbox One. I’d like to try it and see if it really does work as a guitar teaching tool.

    • Scrimm

      Anything that gets you playing a real guitar is a worthwile tool

      • Abradolf Lincler

        of course, for the same money, he could just buy a real guitar

        • Scrimm

          Rocksmith is the one you plug a real guitar into

          • Abradolf Lincler

            ah, i gotcha

        • Kevin Nash’s Jackknife

          I have a guitar. The game is also only 60 dollars.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      I’ve heard it works pretty well

      • Kevin Nash’s Jackknife

        I’ll have to buy it.

    • GoatForest

      It does. I play in a grind/doom band, and our bassist learned how to play from rocksmith.

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        Grind/doom? Got any links?

        • GoatForest

          Still working out the recording process, unfortunately. I will link when we can show something.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Excellent!

          • GoatForest

            So far, we are going for Black Sabbath and Eyehategod mixed with Pig Destroyer and Dillinger Escape Plan with touches of the Misfits.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Sounds perfect!

          • GoatForest

            Thanks. I hope it doesn’t dissapoint.

  • nbm02ss

    I took off work for Halloween; going to be bingeing the fuck out of some horror movies.

  • Crab Nicholson

    Seeing Gorguts with Intronaut and Brain Tentacles, seeing Crowhurst play their last show (and first with a band)

    • atchdav

      That should be a great show

  • Abradolf Lincler

    always be mansoning

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    Trunk or treat was last night. Tonight is off. Tomorrow we go pillage the subdivisions in town.

  • Rob M

    I’ll be drinking, watching the entire Halloween series for 10,000th time, and pretending I bought those 6 bags of candy for the three kids who will actually knock on my door and not for myself to munch on all night

  • Al Bundy

    i will be taking my Hyperactive kids to a Hallo’ween disco, where they shall eat junk, drink sugar and run around with the other hyperactive kids to a soundtrack of spooky themed pop music. The horror…

    • Howard Dean

      “plus sign” “broken piece of bacon” “equal sign” “piece of bacon”

      Solve for x when: 1.) x is a positive integer greater than or equal to cholesterol; 2.) the inverse of positive integer y is equal to the expected number of stents required for the second angioplasty.

  • I’m gonna get drunk.

  • Woke up at 10:30am yesterday, worked for 4 hours, went to the gym for two, got home and binged pizza and vidya until 2. Today is just chores and probably vidya.

  • JWEG

    I carved a crappy jack o lantern, I may or may not hand out chocolate to the few trick or treat participants we might or might not get. I don’t have any kind of costume. If I had total control I’d have real horror soundtracks playing out front, and not spooky sounds for snot-nosed ankle-biters. Bah humbug (wrong holiday!)

    I have errands yet, and tomorrow a full workday (and a bit). Maybe this evening I’ll watch something violent and trashy. Tomorrow obviously I am practically obligated to watch Night of the Demons and at least one of the Halloween films (the original).

    Also, I have something to read (again):

    https://www.amazon.ca/Autumn-Cthulhu-Laird-Barron-ebook/dp/B01F7FZ9FS/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=

  • Óðinn

    I’ll be reading about Jean Désiré Gustave Courbet, as well as writing about
    The Arts and Crafts movement of the late 19th / early 20th centuries, comparing it politically as it relates to more contemporary craft movements like Etsy.

    Halloween is on Monday and I don’t have any functional computers in my house, so I won’t be watching anything. Maybe I’ll read some horror stories on the Internet.
