Some may look at these images as something to be feared or dreaded . I do not ! As when these movies were made, our world was in the throes of a second world war and REAL MONSTERS far worse then any of these fellows made their diabolical presences known. When I was a boy I had my own demons to assuage and my monster friends helped me through it . If I could overcome my fear of these fine fellows and come to terms with them and even grow to love them , then .... I could conquer my own fears and learn to deal with them as well !
So , when the moon is full and the winds whispers through the knotted branches of the black trees and the wolves are howling and the creepy bats are flying you won't find this horror lover cowering in fear !
May you all experience the happiest and creepiest of Halloweens !
