It’s Halloween, finally. The one day of the year people will finally stop staring at me funny for spending all day in the graveyard. I’m taking a break from all the tomb wandering to offer up a list of suggestions for how to invoke the dark lord of science into your Wednesday EEKvening. When science fiction is mixed with spooky scares, the results are more often than not worse than dreadful. Luckily, there are blood diamonds in the rough, and I present a variety of them to you in Double-Feature form, since things always work better in pairs, like blondes and machetes. This is by no means an exhaustive list, and I welcome all suggestions that weren’t included. Nothing makes me happier than finding out about a movie that slipped past me. Except for, you know, spending all day in this graveyard…You know what? I’m just going to drop this whole character thing. Let’s get to the list.
(Just so we’re clear, I’m assuming Prometheus got everyone rewatching Alien already this year, so it’s not on the list.)
