THE HALLOWEEN CHANNEL

Trick or Treat (1969)
A film designed to generate discussion about the consequences of Halloween mischief.


Time Life Enchanted World commercial
This commercial was always so thrilling. When I finally got to look at these books it made me wish they had made a series of videos instead.

That first film is priceless! If they ever turn I Luv Halloween into a movie this is how I picture it...well, you know, but with more gore :)

Yeah, it's got it all. I knew I'd like it from the moment I saw the creature PEZ getting major screen time!

I've watched the first film about eight times already. They somehow perfectly captured what trick-or-treating was like in my San Diego neighborhood circa 1970: everything from the old German couple with cookies to the to the mean old guy in a trailer and wearing a beater -- I swear I have lived these images before. And something about the film they used back then, it makes everything look like a faded memory.

There was a movie that came out in the mid 70s called Kenny and Company, that had some great Halloween scenes. I just googled it for the first time and saw that it's out on DVD. Got to watch that one on Halloween night!

steven- That's so cool that it hit so close to home. There really is a beauty to it and it oozes with Halloween essence.
I'll keep my eyes open for Kenny and Company too.
