October brings... the SCARY!

Last year I played horror video games. It was fun and I discovered some really fun games. I also watched some movies based on those games.

This year I decided that since I haven't played Castlevania I would go that route. And movies? Dracula movies, of course!

Last week Jen, Dale and I watched "NOSFERATU: Phantom der Nacht" from 1979. Pretty creepy... but being an artsy Werner Herzog film, it was pretty funny in some places.

This week we're watching "Shadow of the Vampire" from 2000 with Willem Dafoe. I'll also be playing the original NES classic CASTLEVANIA. I do have the NES version, so I don't need to get it on the virtual console... but if you don't have it you might want to play it for the October season.
