I live on the block that is the Halloween block.
It’s like the block that is the Christmas Decorations Block, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, here. If you still don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s that one block in town that goes ape over a holiday and everyone dresses the house to the nines to one-up everybody else.
I don’t know that I can compete in year one with the established players, as they’ve been building their collection of decorations for years and they have themes and in many cases have capital investments behind the decorations they’re gonna put up between now and Halloween.
So I’m cheating. I have a decent AV setup and I’m going to throw up the hi def projector and the screen and the speakers and show a movie. About 60% of the walking crowd is little kids, so Alien or Elm Street or the like is out. I’m torn between the original Dracula, the original Frankenstein, or Forbidden Planet.
Forbidden Planet appeals because “50s SF flicks” is a workable theme for building up additional decorations, as well. Plus, well… Forbidden Planet.
Thoughts? Crowd-sourcing ideas early to get momentum building…
