by bananaman-1 | created - 02 Oct 2011 | updated - 02 Nov 2011 | Public

Decided to put together my own personal Halloween movie festival this October... movies, plus a few TV episodes here and there. This should be fun.

Also catching up on Fringe, and watching the current seasons of Supernatural, Sanctuary, The Walking Dead, and Bedlam, among other shows. Throwing those in here too.
