October is just around the corner. A busy time of year for the Drive-In. There's the Countdown to Halloween, of course, for which Rabbi no doubt has plenty of ghoulish delights up his sleeves. As for myself, I struggled for a while with something to do to celebrate my favorite time of the year. I want to do a marathon of a supremely spooky series, but which one? Well, Tales from the Crypt is a bit gore-y for my tastes. The Twilight Zone has been analyzed to death. I'm craving something... old, but not too old. Something that really scratches that nostalgic itch I've been feeling. Something to fit this frightful holiday. Finally, I thought of the perfect show. Which leads me to my question...

Nope. I'm not going to apologize this time. I've just accepted the fact that I am a ridiculously inconsistent writer, and you all should too. Just think of me as the George R.R. Martin of horror blogging. You may have to wait months or years for something new, but it's always worth it, amirite?

Parody movies are like an art form. Done right, you get a cinematic equivalent of a van Gogh, something that is both funny and shines a light on some of the more ridiculous common threads in movies. Done wrong, you get the equivalent of a 5-year-old's drawing that's been stomped on with muddy shoes, put through a washer, and flushed down the toilet. I'll give you two guesses as to which of these categories I think A Haunted House falls into.
