Halloween: no one can say or tell you, especially you kids, “if you aren’t good you will get the black man….” Thanks to this festival the children can exorcise a lot of their fears, living with monsters, ghosts, skeletons, spiders and more.


Frankenstein directed by James Whale, 1931 

I like Halloween, since you are “seized” it and especially since in the house there is a little boy…,  we can not do without … I love the atmosphere it creates, it is as if was a second carnival, everyone can dress up even the great ones, without the risk of being ridiculous, but mostly because we can finally laugh or smile on the thing that scares us the most, death.

Psycho directed by Alfred Hitchcock, 1960 

Loving much film I decided to list the movies that scared me the most, the ones that made me close my eyes, more than keep them open, those that you carry a lifetime, but also those who have characterized the horror genre because, in my opinion, but I think not only my, true masterpieces.

Halloween has managed to transform objects thrilling as skeletons & C. mascot funny as dolls or stuffed toys. Cheers Halloween!

Turning to a balcony I had a shiver of fear … but luckily it was just another star of the party.
