NEXT WEEK ON BAD MOVIE NIGHT!! The best holiday of the ENTIRE YEAR is almost upon us, and we’re celebrating Halloween right with two shining, spoOoOoky examples of “witch house cinema”. (Get it? Because there was this music genre… and… look, it was funnier in my head.)
FIRST UP: We’ve got the made-for-TV adaptation of Jill Murphy’s classic kids’ book series, THE WORST WITCH. It’s an endearingly low-budget slice of family-friendly Halloween shlock WITH a special guest appearance by BMN viewer favorite Tim Curry! If you’ve seen the Youtube video of him singing a song about how awesome halloween is while he shoots Video Toaster magic all over the place, this is the movie that’s from. 6pm Pacific, 9pm Eastern!
AND AFTER THAT: Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy star as three 300-year-old witch sisters who wreck the shit out of a small modern-day Massachussetts town just for funsies in hoary 1993 Halloween classic, HOCUS POCUS! If you haven’t seen this film or if you just haven’t seen it in a while, now’s a great chance to get reacquainted and marvel at its…. well, just marvel at it. That it exists. That it continues to exist to this day. 7:30pm Pacific, 10:30 pm Eastern!
ALSO IN STORE: Spooks! Specters! All sorts of surprises! A horrifyingly good time for all! Treat yourself to this extra-special BAD MOVIE NIGHT next Wednesday night at the usual URL, http://livestream.com/ijbmn. It’s definitely not a trick… or IS IT??? *thunder crashes, chains rattle, doors squeak, skeleton bones chatter, etc*
JUST A HEADS UP: There’s a new Crossed Wires page up today! There was a new Crossed Wires page up this past Monday, too, but I forgot to blog about it because I was running around all day trying to get my car fixed. (Busted ignition cylinder lock. Nothing too serious, but a royal pain in the ass to haul the thing around.) ANYWAYS, head on over to http://crossedwires.ianjay.net and catch up if you haven’t already!
ALSO HEY: We’ve almost hit FIFTY PAGES and I haven’t missed a single update deadline. WHAT SORT OF WARPED-ASS TWILIGHT ZONE WORLD ARE WE LIVING IN?!
THANK GOODNESS FOR BUFFERS!! also thank goodness this comic is pretty quick and fun to crank out. YEAH
