These usually consisted of vintage horror movies like the original Frankenstein and Dracula along with a live stage presentation or at the very least staff members dressed up in ghoulish outfits. My friend Gary Meyer recently sent me some images from an Oakland, California magic journal of the 1940s and 50s that I’m pleased to share with you, in the hope that they may stoke some happy memories. If you want to see more of these—even on t-shirts—click HERE. (Long ago, at a Halloween Saturday matinee in Paramus, New Jersey, the thea...

    REVIEW | "The Last Rites of Joe May" is a Clichéd Drama, But It Works

    Dennis Farina's washed-up hustler in "The Last Rites of Joe May" is designed in the mold of a classic movie star tough guy, but the veteran character actor's performance also serves to disassemble that same archetype. Freed from a Chicago hospital after a bout with pneumonia, ...

    Scary movies don't deserve recognition only at the end of October, but we're grateful for this dubious American holiday in that it always confers instant legitimacy -- however briefly -- on a genre too often dismissed.
