Six Weeks of HalloweenSix Weeks of Halloween 2007
Week 6 (eleventh)

Masters of Horror: "We All Scream for Ice Cream" (2007)
Surprisingly well-executed despite the ridiculous premise. (7/10)

d. Tom Holland

Tales from the Crypt: "Mournin' Mess" (1991)
Mrs. Tom Hanks, no! (6/10)

d. Manny Coto

Tales from the Crypt: "Split Second" (1991)
I don't think this was supposed to be about gay lumberjacks, but it's fun to look at it that way. (7/10)

d. Russell Mulcahy

    I've been debating on whether or not I should add ol' Mulcahy to the ol' director's list. If I did, I would probably stop confusing him with Ken Russell.

    It's not really worth it, Sean. He has like two good movies out of thirty. He's almost completely a direct-to-video staple these days. You'd be better of just watching more Ken Russell. And several of his films are right up your alley.

    I'd love to add Ken Russell to my list... 'cept his films are kind of a pain to find on this side of the pond.
