It’s the time of the season for scary movies, as everyone gets in on the ol’ Halloweenie spirit.  On the one hand, it’s great to find things like ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street’ and ‘Carrie’ popping up on regular cable channels without having to stream them or seek them out, but…  Actually, there’s no real downside to a scary movie.  I remember watching ‘Phantasm’ with my cousin Elwood when I was waaaay too young and introducing my daughter to ‘Night Of The Living Dead’ when she insisted she wanted to see it, leading to today’s suspenseful query…

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
