That would be something, Chris.

Oh for the days when we had top quality series like Tales of Mystery and Imagination, with adaptations of M. R. James, Robert Louis Stevenson, Stoker, Shelley, etc.

I'm not great fan of the original Halloween, so I went to see Zombie's remake more or less with an open mind.

I found the first half, involving the young Myers the best part. Compared to the hulking, virtually faceless and silent adult in the second half, the young Myers was genuinely scary. The second half  was just a slasher film by numbers and, for me, totally boring. Whatever character was developed for Myers in the first half was totally lost when he becomes an adult.  A big disappointment, especially since I must admit to having like House of 1000 Corpses and Devil's Rejects.

I was disappointed to have to cancel  going to this first Open Night at York (my wife was too ill to go), but Allyson's idea for a ghost story evening sounds splendid.
A fee of ?1 per person sounds incredibly reasonable for something like this.  I don't think anyone seriously thinking about going would object to something more - if only to make sure the total costs were covered.

2. Hammer Horrors - particularly the early ones before they got too "tacky"

Looking back on them now, I don't mind them at all getting too "tacky" - though I did at the time!

Did anyone manage to book into The Wheatlands?

We managed, but we booked the hotel virtually as soon as we found out about the Open Night.  We are staying there Saturday and Sunday nights, turning it into a bit of a mini-holiday.
