It's that time of the year again ... and that ole Halloween spirit is in the air! Here in my North Dallas neighbourhood, decorations went up the last week of September ... so I feel I'm running a tad late ... heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {:-) But for this Part 8 of the "Halloween" series of this journal/ blog ... I wanted to highlight and compile some of the vintage Halloween from past decades ... I been sorting through much over the last week or so, and there is alot of great stuff to view, so it was difficult just selecting a few ... but some really nice stuff that these folks have below, and Thanx to them! Today, Halloween is very commercialized too, some folks just rent costumes, and there are many accessories to do your own, films and art are much more elaborate, etc. But even back decades ago, without all you have now ... people were very creative, and had alot of fun, with much less to work with ... and really even made some great Halloween outfits from scratch, some great classic film and music ... some that bring me back to childhood memories ... and credit to those too! This posting will also be included in the "RCJ MUSIC/ ARTS HONOUR ROLL SOCIETY". Anywayz ... HAPPY HALLOWEEN to the reader/ viewer ... more below ... Enjoy!

Fun stuff. Some of the footage in that second video looks familiar. I think it was used in some Satanist video that was distributed back in the pre-internet days.

Do you still get trick-or-treating by kids where you are? It seems to have practically died out around here. The office parties and adult costumes are getting more and more elaborate, though. I guess holidays continue to evolve.

Yes Infidel ... I believe the video that you may be referring to would be "Speak of the Devil" ... an Anton LaVey documentary released from Wavelength Video in 1993. I have it on DVD myself.

Yes ... they still do Trick- or- Treating here ... there are alot of kidz in my area and neighbourhood, so there is quite a bit of it ... but also alot of adult partying, then you have the big block party bash in Oaklawn district, which is close to my part of town ... and other districts and venues ... it's pretty busy here Halloween though.
