“Beware the autumn people.
For some, autumn comes early, stays late, through life, where October follows September and November touches October and then instead of December and Christ’s birth there is no Bethlehem Star, no rejoicing, but September comes again and old October and so on down the years, with no winter, spring or revivifying summer.
For these beings, fall is the only normal season, the only weather, there be no choice beyond.
Where do they come from? The dust.
Where do they go? The grave.
Does blood stir their veins? No, the night wind.
What ticks in their head? The worm.
What speaks through their mouth? The toad.
What sees from their eye? The snake.
What hears with their ear? The abyss between the stars.
They sift the human storm for souls, eat flesh of reason, fill tombs with sinners. They frenzy forth. In gusts they beetle-scurry, creep, thread, filter, motion, make all moons sullen, and surely cloud all clear-run waters. The spider-web hears them, trembles—breaks.
Such are the autumn people.”
Ray Bradbury, Something Wicked This Way Comes (1962)e (via amber-and-ice)

Adult Wednesday Addams: Dog Walker

Donnie Darko (2001)
Directed by Richard Kelly
After a jet engine falls in Donnie Darko’s bedroom during one of his mid-night sleep walks, reality starts to unravel for the troubled protagonist.
This is a Halloween staple for me.  The unraveling of reality, the discussions of death and existence, the terrifying monster following Donnie, and the amazing score all make this one of my favorite movies for this time of year.  Just don’t watch the sequel.  You won’t get any answers.
Seriously though, even if you get annoyed with the plot or “philosophy”, give the score a chance.  It’s one of the most haunting and touching scores I’ve ever heard.  Michael Andrews should have won all the awards that year for this soundtrack.
And with that, I hope you’ve all enjoyed this walk through 31 days of Halloween movies (and TV) this year!
