Oh yeah, the new Halloween movie is out this Thursday night. Here's the site to find out anywhere it's playing.

Oh, and /Film had the same thoughts as us about the poorly named Horror Made Here: A Festival of Frights. Here's our review.

Once again, here'sThings To Do In LA's Halloween guide:
 We keep adding to it, so look through it for what to do this weekend into Halloween itself. There's so many horror films to see.

Burger King is going for it this year. And we mean the Halloween crowd. Not only do they already have the Scary Black Cherry frozen drink, that turns your mouth and tongue black and your poopie green. They have the Nightmare King, coming out for a limited time starting Oct 22 at select locations. It's suppose make you literally have nightmares or at least boost the chances of you having them based on "science." The green bun doesn't hurt it for Halloween hi-jinks.
