For days leading up to Halloween and definitely on the day itself, TV channels and networks would run Halloween-themed specials. Not just Charlie Brown but old movies on the local channels.
When cable exploded in the 1980s, the selection was even greater. I loved the movies and specials that aired on AMC and TCM.
Tonight I’m confronted with more movies than I’ll have time to watch, from “The Lost Boys” on VH1 to “Dead of Night” on TCM to the “Blacula” movies – both of em – on Bounce, the local “urban” station.
It’s a seasonal embarrassment of riches.
