“FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS”
Welcome to day 14 of 31 Days of Halloween!

I can’t even count the number of times I said ‘Trick or Treat” in one night.
Halllooooooo! Our apologies for being a bit late this evening. Welcome to 31 Days of Halloween. It’s day 5 and have we got something special! Today’s link is going to sink you right up to your neck in a playlist of 7 chilling films from 1969-1988. We’ve got The Lady in White, Diary of a Madman, Dracula (1977), Horror Express, The Reincarnation of Peter Proud, Night of the Living Dead, and The Picture of Dorian Gray. We hope you enjoy them!
