a Halloween treat: Burn, Witch, Burn [Tue, 01 Nov 2011 02:51:44 +0000]
Since I got rid of Facebook [http://blog.humaneguitarist.org/2011/08/27/on-why-i-left-facebook/], I no longer have a way to share any movies that I really enjoy. So I've added a "film" category to this blog, which more and more is serving as documentation of where my head's at. Film isn't really off-topic anyway given that I'm casually working on some stuff [http://blog.humaneguitarist.org/tag/hammerflix/] with the Netflix API to get a list of some horror films. Anyway, today is Halloween and last night I watched a great film called "Burn, Witch, Burn [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0056279/]". I didn't watch a horror film because of the date. I just love horror films, especially ones like this that are well-written, well-acted, and just a joy to watch.

In a good way. The opening narration is really a treat and I knew as soon as I heard the voice of the narrator that I'd heard it before ... at the Haunted Mansion in Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Sure enough, the narrator was one Paul Frees [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Frees#Disney] who did indeed do the Disney/Haunted Mansion voice.
