Never Mind Sandy, here's "The Halloween Tree"!

The good news is that my neighborhood didn't get hit too hard by the hurricane yesterday.  The bad news is that it looks like New York City and the New Jersey shore took the worst of what Sandy had to offer.  I hope everyone there is safe and staying warm and dry.

It's time to get back in the holiday spirit, so here's a rarity.  It's the 1993 animated film based off Ray Bradbury's spooky novel The Halloween Tree.  It isn't the best quality, but even so the music and Bradbury's narration will get you in the mood for Halloween.  The film is remarkably faithful to the source material (one of the only major changes is switching the gender of a major character and personally I have no problem with that).  It's best enjoyed with something pumpkin spice flavored to drink and a small just taking three at a time leaving enough for the kids I promise selection of candy. 

Next post, we finally, finally reconnect with that old friend I promised.  Have a wonderful Halloween, everyone!
