Does AMC still do MonsterFest? I really hope so - for years that marathon defined the days leading up to Halloween for me. That's where I first saw movies like The Creature from the Black Lagoon, Dracula, Wolfman, The Pit and the Pendulum, and probably dozens more that are buried deep within my psyche, giving me a fascination for the macabre. I know they may seem a little hokey now, but that is what makes these movies so delicious and spooky! I wish I still had cable so I could snuggle up on the couch with a bag of candy corn and watch three in a row.
