    Paul Melniczek's October recommendations

    Remember when Paul Melniczek used to post Halloween/Horror themed shows on television during October?

    That was at the Drive-In?

      Wow. Looks like a great place to get Viagra and CBD oil for your pet from trusted Russian sources, though, so I guess there's that.

      First time I've checked on it in many years...didn't care at all for the way the HD-I forum was shut down previously without at least a day or two notice to its members -- many long-term like you and me -- so just stayed away. Interesting that Mark is still posting blog-style elsewhere on the site, and that he reintroduced the forum a year ago or so, from the looks of it, to the apparent pleasure of his entrepreneurial Russian forum members. I'm not sure what the intent of the site is at this point, but do wish him well.

        The old HDi forum was a great place. If I remember correctly Sieber trashed the place because he took offense to one persons comment. I can't remember the details though he used to threaten to close the place down every year or so.
        I had no idea that he started the forum up again though having checked it out he probably shouldn't have bothered.

          Hoke used to go there and occasionally get suspended, but he was a supporter.

          Oh well, life goes on.

            The tradition continues, except we've been doing it at the Halloween Forum for years. Several people post threads with October TV listings. Another thing of course is your own Halloween movie list. So how about adding your October lineup? Better late than never! Some years I can barely watch half of what I have on the list depending on how busy I am. I also agree about the HDI. I give Mark a lot of credit trying to revive the forum, but FB has swallowed nearly all of them. And now the spammers have descended like the vultures they are. I don't like FB myself, but my business necessitates it. Below I posted my own list. If you like, I can do an October TV schedule if there's interest? I also have a new Halloween Books, Paul Melniczek FB page up. I can't access any of my old ones thanks to the incompetence of FB, so just do a search. I update that year round.

              Fortunately my job does not necessitate a facebook account so I do not have one. I would love to see your Halloween books recommendations, if you would be willing to post them here.

                Honestly, I hardly have time to read anything (or write). But the ones for this season I would highly recommend 13 HORRORS OF HALLOWEEN, some of Al Sarrantonio's work, and if you can grab a copy of BECOMING OCTOBER by William P. Simmons, it's a great read. Almost impossible to find. Other Halloween anthologies are out there too. Of course, all my own Halloween books and then some!

                  Oh yeah, THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKIN' ABOOT!!!

                  Like how I go back and forth between English and Canadian?

                  Yeah, it's a gift.

                    The Halloween Forum lists a lot. I'm also short of time.
                    I wish there was a more comprehensive list.

                      I try and start reading Halloween books in September but it never happens. Weather is still great and I'm busy with a lot of stuff. Fortunately there's the rest of the year for it!
