I'm a little red-faced...

And it isn't because of my now-empty bottles of Guzzler's Gin. No, just embarrassed that I haven't been posting odd news, horror-related items, WTF stuff and aspects of my strange life like I'm supposed to around here.

Well, did YOU have a good Thanksgiving? Jane and I had a new main dish this year: roast chupacabra with prickly pear stuffing. Yum!

You only have to watch out for the extra teeth in the back legs. (No one knows why they grow there, since they serve no purpose.) Bite down on one of those, and you can lose a crown!

We had a nice dinner, then settled down to watch the 1979 film The Changeling, a ghost story with George C. Scott and Melvyn Douglas. A good movie; very creepy at times. I recommend you follow the old tradition of ghost stories at Christmas time and watch any of the following spirit-filled flickers, presented in no particular order:

The Changeling (1979)

Contains some shocking and surreal moments; well-acted.

The Haunting (1963)

One of the spookiest moments in film history appears here.

The Orphanage (2007)

Unsettling with an unexpected 'happy ending.'

Truly, Madly, Deeply (1990)

A romantic, funny ghost story
; watch if you've seen Ghost-- it's better!

Beyond Tomorrow (1940)

A sentimental Christmas story of three ghosts who try to help a young couple they knew in life.

The website "Scary for Kids" shares their own list of "Best Ghost Movies"
here; some of them are probably too intense for anyone 12.

Personally,I partook in roast turduckacabra at John Madden's place over the holiday.The extra hind legs came in handy for the famished homeless people we invited over for dinner.

I once raised a turduckabra (or was it a chickeydocus?) with extra legs once. It had two heads, too, and once was featured in a Roger Corman movie.

How nice that you had homeless people for dinner! My shrink Dr. Lector tells me they're good with mustard.

But *I* couldn't eat another human being-- how gross!-- but I've had many people tell me to eat *them*. I always decline, but politely.

I've never seen Truly, Madly, Deeply, but agree with your other ghostly choices. "The Changeling" may actually be my favorite ghost movie of all.
