Ok, Now WHERE is everyone GOING for Halloween?

As per Eric's blog post, many of you have thrown in possible costume suggestions for Halloween. Let's take it to the next step. After you get dressed up (or not) where are you going?

Horror Headlines: Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

French director Pascal Laugier ("Martyr(s)") is in final negotiations to write and direct the "Hellraiser" remake. He also says that this is a "dream project" for him, and that he would "never" do anything to besmirch the name of the original.

Fango reports on a sweet throwback looking slasher called "Taken", about a masked killer with a sledgehammer stalking teenagers in an insane asylum.

Tobin Bell says "Saw" will go on forever. I'm considerably less disgusted by that statement than I would have been a week ago.

New American Trailer for the Spanish film "Timecrimes", about a man who finds a time machine and accidentally goes back in time an hour. The film is actually getting a limited theatrical release starting this Sunday, November 30th, and an American remake is currently in the works. (warning: trailer contains spoilers, LINK FIXED)

New images from Sam Raimi's "Drag Me To Hell", a film that we haven't heard anything about in quite a while. Much to my surprise, the article describes it as a "horror comedy about a woman's desperate quest to break an evil curse". I must have missed the day when it was announced as a "horror comedy". Am I the only one that didn't know about the comedy part?

In Real People News: 

Just to offset all of the stories I report about murder and incest and cannibalism around here... every once in a while I have to throw something positive out. How about, dog risks life protecting kittens from deadly fire? There, that should fill the sappy quotient for quite some time, no?

It turns out that Vista is so annoying that Microsoft is already planning it's replacement, titled "Windows 7", to be released early within about a year. If I had to guess the reason, it would probably be that most businesses refused to put the product on their machines. Doesn't exactly bode well for the future of the OS if you ask me.

Vietnamese try to enact hilarious traffic rules including one that would ban people with "small chests" from riding motorbikes, which apparently make up for 90% of their traffic. Great article, and I also learned that the average Vietnamese person is 5 foot 4, which would officially make me... average! Man, I would move there except if this law passes I don't think I would be able to drive.

On this day in history: 

1929: The value of the New York Stock Exchange tumbles 11% in a widespread panic. Thousands of people lose their life savings as 16,410,030 shares change hands. Black Tuesday marks the beginning of the Great Depression.

What's Everyone Going As For Halloween?

(I don't condone dog Halloween costumes, but I may have to make an exception for this one)

I have lots of problems with Halloween costumes. For various and sundry reasons, I haven't had a good costume in about 4 years. Here are just a few...

- My friends suck and refuse to dress up. You can plan a costume party for months, and half of my asshole friends will show up without one complaining about money and time.
