I was waiting for my photos to develop last night so I wandered around looking for things to spend my hard-earned money on.
They have all the Halloween things out on the shelves now: mostly tacky plastic junk but one year I found a very nice metal candle-holder with dancing skeletons in a big-box store so I always look.
They had a rack of horror movie and I scored an"An American Werewolf in London" DVD for only eight dollars! Sigh...I'm happy. It is one of the truly classic films of that genre.
But no good zombie movies. They had everything BUT what I was looking for. They had Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead. Geez louise, they even had My Boyfriend's Back (which was simply dreadful zombie movie but in a funny eighties romantic comedy sort of way). But no "Return of the Living Dead, Part 2", can ya believe it?
The clerk even checked the computer for me, with the air of one who deals with freaks all the time.
But "Werewolves of London" was playing on the store's sound system, so maybe that was a sign werewolves were enough for me tonight.
Speaking of werewolves, Kim Bannerman's book "The Tattooed Wolf" is now available at The Laughing Oyster bookstore in Courtenay, so if you're a local run down and grab one. I highly recommend it. :)
