FROM JONNIE KING:

EVERY YEAR SINCE1967 I've put together a list of my  favorite HALLOWEEN FILM RARITIES for my friends and listeners at Radio Stations across the country.  Some of these are hard to find, super-scary to watch, and, are definitely NOT the "run of the mill" films that you may have seen during the last few years.

These are all virtual-classics in one way or another and I hope you enjoy them, as this is the Special Time of the year that I'm able to share them with you right here on our own WebSite !  Drop me a note, eMail me, let me know some of your favorites, and they may end up here next year.  JK (2017)

[ NOTE: Please check the ratings of the films that you want to watch, as some of these aren't really meant for the "under 18" crowd, and may really be too scary for younger children.  Heck ! Most of  'em still scare me ...that's how they made the list ! ! ]
