Happy Halloween

So Many Memories

My Halloween Movie Double Feature

My Two Movies For Halloween Evening

Dracula   (1931)

Yes I have seen this thing a million times since childhood.  But I just can't help myself.  It is the classic that started it all.  My recent review and re-reading of the book impressed upon me all the more the power of the story.

The creepy atmosphere and black and white filming of the 1931 version cannot be beat.  And we cannot forget the great Dwight Frye as Renfield.  He nearly steals the film.  If you could combine this and the 1992 Francis Ford Coppola version your would have the perfect Dracula movie.


The Hills Have Eyes    (2006)

Now we are into hardcore horror with this remake.  

The movie is frightening on many levels with mutants, people being burned alive, rape and cannibalism.

This movie has a major level of creep and insanity.

Endless War: US Rejects UN Resolution on Israel-Hamas ‘Truce’

Bottom Line
The is no money in peace, but there are hundreds of BILLIONS to be made in war.

(Newswars)  The United States was one of 14 nations to vote against a United Nations resolution calling for a “humanitarian truce” in Gaza amid the Israeli-Hamas conflict.

Meanwhile, 120 countries on Friday voted in favor of the resolution, which calls for an “immediate, durable and sustained humanitarian truce.”

From the UN:

The United Nations General Assembly on Friday adopted a resolution calling for an “immediate, durable and sustained humanitarian truce” between Israeli forces and Hamas militants in Gaza. It also demands “continuous, sufficient and unhindered” provision of lifesaving supplies and services for civilians trapped inside the enclave, as news reports suggest Israel has expanded ground operations and intensified its bombing campaign.

During the general assembly, an amendment proposed by Canada and backed by over 35 Member States including the US, also sought an explicit condemnation of Hamas, but it did not pass after failing to get two-thirds support.

The adopted resolution marks the first formal response by the U.N. to the Hamas attacks on Israel and Israel’s subsequent counteroffensive in Gaza.

Other Security Council resolutions failed to pass on four occasions following vetoes by the U.S., Russia or China.

The 14 nations who voted against the resolution were as follows: The United States, Austria, Croatia, Czechia, Fiji, Guatemala, Hungary, Israel, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay and Tonga.
