Something Wicked Awesome This Way Comes... Countdown to Halloween 2014

It's getting so close, everyone. Starbucks has rolled out the pumpkin spice lattes, cable channels have been running more horror movies than usual, and the air is turning just the tiniest bit chillier... Halloween is coming!

Here at the drive-in, we kinda have a thing about Halloween. Our thing being that we think it's the greatest day of the year. So naturally, Daffy and I were happier than vampires at a blood bank to be asked to participate once again in the annual Countdown to Halloween blog-a-thon!

Curated by the fine folks over at the official roll call for the event, the Countdown is a month-long marathon when those of us with like-minded sites write about the holiday, horror movies, creepy stories, and all manner of related topics as much as we can, both to celebrate our favorite time of the year and to discover some excellent new blogs. This little internet get-together for the creepy kids has been going since 2006(!), and it just keeps getting bigger.

So basically, we'll be increasing our output for the month of October (seriously, I go from about three posts a year to one a day), with new movie and TV reviews, short stories, retrospectives and think-tank pieces. We'll also be running another giveaway, where you'll have the chance to win some seriously amazing stuff. This is gonna be good.

Be sure to visit us often in the next few days, updates will be coming at you fast and furious. Heard that one before, I know. Check out the CtH 2014 site for a list of the participants, and spread the word! The badges for sites that are taking part feature the Creature from the Black Lagoon, in honor of the scaly one's 60th anniversary. Here's one in EYE-POPPING 3-D!!!

Damn, that hurts my eyes... where's the Tylenol?
