The Halloween Countdown Begins NOW!

With a marathon of Halloween, Halloween 4, and Halloween 5 currently running on AMC, Michael Myers returning to the big screen in less than 3 hours, stores beginning to stock their shelves with skeletons and pumpkins, and Halloween just over 2 months away, i'm officially balls deep in the Halloween spirit and I intend on getting you into the mood too - starting right this instant! The 2 month countdown to Halloween is always more exciting than the actual day itself and I intend on fully embracing each and every day of the season on this here blog in these next 60+ days. Got a lot of fun planned but one of the main ideas I have is as follows....

Over the next two months, I want you guys to submit to me your favorite Halloween memories - from your childhood, from last year, from whenever your favorite Halloween memory took place. This goes to any fellow horror bloggers and all you readers out there. E-mail me ( - put "Halloween Memory" as the subject) your favorite Halloween memory, along with your name, picture (if you so desire), and a link to your blog or whatever else you want to plug (if applicable), and i'll post your very own story right here on Freddy In Space within the next two months. It can be as short (a single sentence) or as long (several paragraphs) as you'd like - however many words you need to tell your story. Videos also acceptable! I'm counting on you guys to make this a success, so i'd love to see those memories pour in!

And who knows - maybe even some stars from the horror universe will pop in to share their most treasured Halloween memories. In fact, i'd count on it!

Very cool indeed! I was feeling the beginning of the "Halloween Season" myself, with the movies on the past couple of days and the merch starting to show up.

A memory, huh? Give me a bit to think on it. Gonna enjoy the next 63 + days! Woohoo!

That's an awesome clock man, basically it's the countdown to the Fangoria Con in Vegas that weekend, so that's kick ass.

I have a lot of great Halloween memories, my birthday is the week before, so I had a lot of cool Halloween themed birthday parties as a kid, and I have a lot of good memories of trick or treating with hundreds of other kids roaming the streets. It's not the same nowdays, people are too paranoid, so Halloween is seemingly something that exists in only our minds and movies, but I still enjoy the hell out of it.

Every year I try to watch a horror flick a day in October, since I'm moving on Oct 1st this year, I'm not sure I'll be able to do that, but I can still have fun trying.

I am disgustingly obsessed with Halloween, and have always been that way since I was a little kid. I will possibly get down with a submission for sure, and I am trying to think of all the things that I want to post for the Halloween months too! And you are right, the actual holiday is always kind meh - but it’s the months leading up to - that are what I love the most! I’m happy to see someone else as in to it as I am, and I look forward to what may come out of this!
