Double Features #3
Double Features #3
Halloween Drive-in Double Features #2
We’re in full swing of the spooky season and well into October. I’ve watched a little better than one film a day, so far. How about you? Are you keeping up with one scary movie a day? If not, think of the health benefits. Horror movies get your pulse really soaring and your heart really beating. Your blood circulates faster and your sweat glands get a good workout too. In my humble opinion, watching horror movies is better than going to the gym!
October is such a fun month to read or listen to a good spooky story and dream of Halloween. Whether you like full-on fright, eerie and unsettling, or gently magical, Hoopla has something for you!

Halloween Horror Flicks:
Stephen King Theater
Halloween and horror movies based on books by Stephen King have been a Halloween tradition in my home since the early days of VHS. There is nothing like lining up a stack of movies based on stories by King Stephen, turning down the lights and letting the creeps run wild. Grab some popcorn, a bowl of candy and let’s stay up until the witching hour with the King of Horror.
“Elikem married me in absentia; he did not come to our wedding.” - His Only Wife by Peace Adzo Medie
Reese's Book Club - Hello Sunshine has just announced their October pick, His Only Wife by Peace Adzo Medie. While we order more physical copies for HMCPL and if you can't wait another day to read it, head over to Hoopla for an instant checkout!

Drive-In Double Features #4
Drive-in season is still in full swing. Run to your Kitchen Snack Bar for some ice cold beverages, maybe a piping hot slice of pizza or a pit cooked B-B-Q sandwich, and of course, popcorn and candy or delicious ice cream. The show is about to begin! (Remember, I’m just putting two movies together for the double features, there is no double feature option on Hoopla.)
In our 6th Episode, Rob and Michelle discuss some books and movies that have inspired them in some way. Give the podcast a go and hear the story behind Rob's picture with movie director Dan O'Bannon! As promised, here's the picture!
