THE GHOST OF HALLOWEEN PAST
My Top 10 Countdown to Halloween Posts From Previous Years
I only have one day off from work this week, which is cutting in to my blogging time. In order to get back on track for the rest of the week (I need to do three more monster toy photo shoots, plus watch and write about a handful of movies, and then put them all together into a bunch of blog posts) I'm going to be looking back at my most popular posts from previous Countdown to Halloweens. After this, it should be all-new toy and movie reviews through the rest of October. But for now, allow me to introduce... THE GHOST OF HALLOWEEN PAST!
10. Planet of the Vampires (1965)
|The Living Dead...In Space!|
9. Monster Cereal Taste-Off!
Speaking of empty calories, my ninth most popular Countdown to Halloween post is "Monster Cereal Taste-Off," wherein I consume bowls of Boo Berry, Franken Berry, and Count Chocula, and discover that eating this stuff as an adult doesn't quite live up to my memories of eating it as a kid.
8. The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Meet Dracula (1977)
|"Who wants Alpo?"|
7. The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) - 62 Screencaps
I think this was initially conceived as a "time-saving" post (kind of like this one). I had a bunch of screencaps left over after I finished my review of The Bride of Frankenstein, so I decided to upload them in their own post. Lo and Behold several years later, this post that I spent a few minutes on gets about 10 times as much traffic as the one I spent hours writing and rewriting.
6. Saturn 3 (1980)
|Kirk Douglas: Master Thespian|
5. Frankenstein (1931)
Frankenstein's Monster is my all-time favorite movie monster, so I'm glad to see that my review of this film is popular enough to make number 5. And no, it's not from people searching for "Naked Frankenstein Wrestling."
4. The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini (1966)
Number 4 on my list belongs to "The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini," the last film of AIP's "Beach Party" series. At this point the Beach Party formula was getting pretty stale, and they had lost the stars of the previous films, Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello, so the producers decided to shake things up by changing locations from the beach to a haunted house. The result was a hybrid horror/teen musical/comedy flick that is pretty dumb, but still fairly entertaining. Similar to "Saturn 3" the popularity of this review seems to come as much from people searching for pictures of "Naked Ghosts" as it does from people who are actually interested in the movie.
3. Jimmy Olsen is a Sweet Transvestite

Part 3 - http://misfitdaydream.blogspot.com/2012/10/frankentoys-top-10-frankenstein-games_20.html
A top 10 list within a top 10 list! I think my brain is going to explode! Frankentoys is my top 10 list of vintage Frankenstein toys from the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. These are all toys that were inspired by or feature Frankenstein's Monster, either individually or as part of a line of toys that Frankenstein was a part of. This is also one of my personal favorite Halloween posts, so I'm glad to see it's popular enough to make it to number 2.
