It's no secret that I'm a huge horror film fanatic, and every year I love to watch horror films non-stop for the month prior to Halloween, and especially on Halloween night!

Here are my favourites:

Halloween (the original!)

Filmed in Vancouver, and starring our family friend Ellen Burstyn!

And here are some films that are appropriate for kids:

  2. Hi Alex, I found an article about an Australian man who was harassed in India for wearing a tattoo of a Hindu goddess. I thought you might want to read it because you husband has similar ones, and should be careful.
