are you a good witch or a bad witch?

I'm not going to do anything special here for Halloween this year. Last year's 31 movie Schlocktoberfest marathon really took it out of me. So, go back and read those if you missed them- there were a lot of fun, crazy and stupid movies in the full list. I do however think witches are hot. Maybe not Margaret Hamilton of the West...
"It was the start of the year in our old Celtic lands, and we'd be waiting... in our houses of wattles and clay. The barriers would be down, you see, between the real and the unreal, and the dead might be looking in... to sit by our fires of turf. Halloween... the festival of Samhain! The last great one took place three thousand years ago, when the hills ran red... with the blood of animals and children."
--Conal Cochran, Halloween 3: Season of the Witch (full review)
But Maleficent for sure. She's inspired fan art and the ubiquitous sexy costumes. Sleeping Beauty is still my favorite Disney animated feature. It's actually scary.

I found Bell Book and Candle a bit of a snoozer though Kim Novak's a hottie. Give me I Married a Witch with Veronica Lake and Fredric March, that one's a lot of fun. I never liked "Bewitched" much, though. Wiggling noses belong on tapirs.

Sorry for this insipid post, I was up late for work and this is the closest you'll get to a Hump Day post this week!

Sleeping Beauty is my fave too. I scared many a kid while babysitting with that movie.

LSU vs Tulane on Halloween. :)

Let's not forget the witches in WILD AT HEART with the yummy good witch played by Sheryl Lee ("Don't give up on love.") and the bad witch played by Diane Ladd (yikes, too much lipstick!).

I'm a huge fan of Sleeping Beauty and esp. Maleficent!
