Halloween isn't even officially recognized over here, not that you would know it.
I'm not against having some fun at this time of year, but in the southern hemisphere we are heading into summer, not winter like the northern hemisphere is, so it doesn't really make sense to celebrate harvest themes in the Aussie springtime.
And I like the Netflix series 'Squid Game' as much as any horror movie/show goes, it's just a tragic coincidental shame that South Korea is where this real-life Halloween catastrophe has occurred.
In the last few weeks a few coincidences led me to watch the 2009-11 V TV re-boot of the original 1983 TV show.
When I was researching my post about the 1982 movie'Poltergeist'and the supposed curse surrounding the movie, I found out that the last acting credit for the late Dominique Dunne was the role ofRobin Maxwellin the 1983 V TV series, but her role was re-cast after she was murdered in real life -
I thought I had the DVD of the first V series in my DVD collection, and which I had never watched and had bought from a bargain bin years ago, but it was the 2009V series I had bought, not the original.
The loVechild of MJ Fox and Tom Cruise?-)
It was certainly interesting watching my DVD in 2022 and realizing that the term "the Visitors" was used in the V series long before Whitley Strieber started using the term, and that the TV show came out years before 'Communion' was released on the world and before people like David Icke started talking about eVil reptilians trying to rule the world.
